The Best Wall Decals for a Nursery
You are an expectant parent and want to ensure your newborn’s nursery is perfect, however, have numerous questions about how and in what theme you should decorate the blank walls. In years past you needed to stencil or custom paint murals or images onto the walls but that may not be a reasonable remedy for someone who rents or does not have the time or artistic ability, and can be very expensive.
With the introduction of vinyl wall decals nearly two decades ago, parents now have a quick and easy option for decorating and a solution for altering an already decorated room as your child grows and their likes change. Let’s explore….
Nursery Vinyl Wall Stickers
The first and foremost objective is to ensure any wall decals you select are safe for your child. Initially, when you bring your newborn home, there should not be an issue with decorating around the crib area. However, as your child grows and begins standing, around the 6 to the 8-month range, Wallhogs recommends no decals be installed around the crib area smaller than 3” in measurement. This will eliminate if your crib is located next to the wall, any possibility of your child peeling one of the decals from the wall, creating a choking hazard. This is also a time to ensure that any smaller decals are also placed out of range, around 36” from the floor surface around the room.
Some parents may be concerned as the majority of decals are printed on vinyl. This is true due to the cost factor and allowing parents the affordability. At Wallhogs we offer two types of wall decals, both vinyl, and woven polyester fabric. These materials both maintain a water-based adhesive that is perfectly safe for children.
Nursery Fabric Wall Decals
What Theme, Color, Style, or Design?
As your child has not arrived yet the basic design of the room will be up to you. If you are aware of the sex this makes it much easier but if not you will need to select something neutral. Of course, you want something that will stimulate your newborn’s eye and brain functions and there are literally millions of decals available that will assist in this. Wallhogs has a complete line of nursery multi-pack decals up to larger mural decals to include everything from clouds to unicorns to woodland animals.
If you are unsure of a specific scene or theme Wallhogs can produce custom wall decals using your photos or artwork. These custom decals are also available on both of our decal materials and only take a few days to produce. This provides you the ability to surround your newborn with the faces that love them or scenes you have created yourself.

Are Wall Decals Easy to Install & Remove?
First, if you have recently painted the wall surface where you will be adhering the decals you must let the paint cure for 30 days prior to decal installation. Also, vinyl decals are only intended for installation onto flat, smooth, painted surfaces such as drywall or Sheetrock, however, Wallhogs fabric wall decals will also adhere to slightly textured, painted surfaces such as fine orange peel or eggshell textures.
Installation of wall decals could not be any simpler – they are an easy peel-and-stick product.
Removal of decals is just as simple – just peel them from the wall surface and if you’ve saved the carrier paper they arrived on you can place and store them on it. If you no longer have the original backing, you may use wax paper, ensuring you placed the adhesive side of the decal on the wax side.
