There is nothing like giving your home a new look to change up the vibe. As a stay-at-home mom, this can be easier said than done. However, there are ways to update your home while still taking care of your children. One idea is to give your home a new look with wallpaper.
Let Your Children Help
Children who are old enough may enjoy helping with your new wallpaper project. It gives them the opportunity to try a hands-on project and spend time with you. You can assign your children a role based on their age, height and skill level. For example, younger or smaller children can help you gather your supplies, while older and taller children can help add the wallpaper adhesive or hold the ladder.
Keep Your Children Occupied
If your children are not helping with your home wallpaper project, you are going to need to find a way to keep them occupied. One idea is to set up an area in the room for limited toys or crafts. This is also a good time to allow them to play a game or watch a movie on a tablet for a while, or you can encourage them to use this time for reading. While you may want to keep them out of the way, you still want your children to stay where you can care for them as needed.
Learn How To Wallpaper A Room
Whether it is nap time or homework time, there is going to come a time when you can wallpaper your home without any interruptions. However, it is best to learn the steps in advance. This way, you can get right down to business when your schedule allows for it. You can find instructions for applying your wallpaper online, and they may include the following steps:
Wallpaper Option: Choose from wallpaper adhesive or paste-the-paper, with wallpaper adhesive being the easiest and most popular option.
Sizing The Wall:
It is a step that makes it easier to move the wallpaper around into the proper position as needed.
You are going to apply the wallpaper adhesive in this step, as this is what is going to attach your wallpaper to the wall.
Cutting Your Wallpaper:
It is recommended to cut the wallpaper about 6 inches longer than the height of your wall, at the top and bottom, just in case the measurements are not 100% accurate. You should also keep your scissors handy, so you can adjust your wallpaper for your windows and doors as needed.
Look Into Wallpaper Alternatives
If you absolutely cannot use traditional wallpaper in your home due to your busy schedule. You can always look into wallpaper alternatives. One example is peel-and-stick wallpaper, which comes in a wide range of designs to fit your interior. The best part is it does not take as long to apply the peel-and-stick wallpaper. You can easily remove and reposition your wallpaper as needed.
Even as a busy stay at home mom, you can still give your home a new look with wallpaper.
