Science classroom décor or science wall art, may not exactly be something that you often hear about. How do you decorate your classroom where you teach chemistry? Or your lab? Most often, you probably don’t because science tools and resources may not seem like very artistic options. But have we got a surprise for you! We have rounded up some of the coolest ways to decorate any lab or science classroom with wall decals, wallpaper or a wall mural. Check out our 11 favorite science wallpaper ideas below!

Periodic Table

Our number one idea for a science wallpaper for walls is to install a wall mural of the periodic table. This is such a simple and colorful way to liven up any space. Install this science wallpaper up in the back of the classroom where your students can reference it as often as they need to. You can find a periodic table image in simple black and white if you want a simpler decoration, or pick one that is color coded by gases, etc. to give your room a real pop of color.

One beautiful way to decorate your room with science wallpaper is to pick an abstract pattern or abstract image to cover an entire wall. An image like this one below can give your room a beautiful solution for science wall décor with a subtle bit of color. This lovely option for a science wallpaper for walls can transform any space from boring or sad looking to something pretty and fun.

Aromatherapyscience wallpaper

If your classroom or shop is less focused on traditional science, you can find a more specific science wall art for your shop or science focus such as aromatherapy or homeopathic approaches. For instance, this science wall art below is a great way to decorate a space for someone who sells perfumes, essential oils, or someone who works in homeopathic remedies.

Wall Decals

This science wall décor idea is very simple and easy if you have a small space or not a full wall to decorate with. Science wall decal ideas can include simple vinyl decals like this atom decal below. Install one as a focus point in the room, or several different science wall decals in a cluster or throughout your space to create a theme or overall certain aesthetic.

Artistic Muralscience wallpaper

Another beautiful but quick way to decorate your space with science wallpaper is to go with an artistic mural like this one. This kind of wall mural can be installed over the top half of a wall to showcase all of the small things that go into science. It is a simple yet effective solution to give your space a professional yet artistic feel. Pick subtle and light colors, nothing too bold or jarring for this option.

DNA Strandsscience wallpaper

A wonderful science wallpaper idea is to, of course, decorate with a fun science wall paper that has a pattern of DNA strands or is a close up of DNA. DNA is the very center of so many different branches of science that this science wallpaper idea can be used across several different labs or classrooms. With a single color image like this one below, it can be a very stunning and simple solution for decorating a space that you might spend a lot of time in.

Child Friendlyscience wallpaper

If you teach a science in an elementary school or to younger students, we suggest finding a science wallpaper that is kid friendly and not to “scary” or overwhelming looking. Find a simple photo (or take one!) of a child participating in a simple task and install it on the wall. If you want to take your own photo, you can and then create your own custom wall mural.

Test Tubes

This fun and colorful science wallpaper idea is simple yet a quick way to jazz up your lab or classroom space. A photo of test tubes can be used to cover an entire wall, and it can also give you enough space to install posters or other flyers on the wall if need be. This way you do not have to worry about losing the functionality of the wall with your decoration. And do not worry, a wall mural like this from LimitLess Walls is made to withstand rubbing and scratching and will last through a year (and definitely more!) of rambunctious students.

Science Collagescience wallpaper

Rather than go with just one image, highlight several different aspects of science or the work you do in the lab with a science collage like this example below. Pick each photo carefully and make sure they each have a color in common. This approach will give your science wall art a common theme and will make it feel coordinated. You can pair the photos with a label in the center of your laboratory name or the specific branch of science that your lab works in.

Another great idea if you work with a younger audience is this science wall paper below. We love the focus that is being made around STEM organizations and after-school clubs. If you participate or hold one of these courses or clubs, decorate your space with a cool STEM-centered science wallpaper. This will bring lots of fun color into your space and remind guests and attendants of the simple things that go into their learning.

Tools & Resourcesscience wallpaper

Our last science wallpaper idea is to install a muted wall mural of the tools and resources behind your work. This kind of wall mural is a simple but great way to give your room a background image with a bit of color. But it also is not something that will be distracting to students or yourself while you work. Give this science wallpaper idea a try to give your classroom or laboratory a fun and simple background to work to.
