paint-outside-the-box-kids-room-moms-bunk-house-best-bunk-beds-for-childrens-bedroomSpring is upon us and summer is right around the corner, so why not step outside the box and have a little fun with your child’s bedroom decor? There are plenty of ways to introduce a fun color scheme or unique design to your child’s room that both parent and kiddo will love. With warmer months here, there is no better time to think bright and bring a pop - or two - of color and creativity into your child’s personal space. From fun wall stencils to innovative brush strokes, your options are truly endless. One of our favorite kids’ room decorating ideas of late is a mural. Wall murals are truly inspirational and allow you to dig deep into your creative side and come up with something new and different from your child’s walls. Whether you just recently brought your little one home from the hospital and want them to grow up in a room full of inspiration and color, or you and your soon-to-be teenager are looking for a project to do together, a mural could be a wonderful option.

Once you’ve made the decision to paint a mural on your child’s walls you can start thinking about which wall you want to transform, what colors you want to use, and what other items may complement the new design. From fun and supportive bunk beds to an exciting novelty bed or ‘grown up’ sleigh bed, there are tons of bedding options that will allow your mural to truly shine, while still keeping your child’s comfort in mind.

Since it is the beginning of the week, we thought it would be fun to go over a few of our favorite mural ideas. If you have any that we missed, we’d love to hear them! This time of year is all about ‘in with the new, out with the old’, and we are always looking for fresh and exciting ideas to help decorate a child’s bedroom. That being said, here are a few mural ideas for your kid’s room:

  • Think Scenic

One of the most popular - and easiest - murals to tackle is one featuring a stunning scenery. From a lazy countryside to fluffy clouds in the sky or a mountainscape, there are many different directions to go with this. If your child is old enough, ask their opinion and see what seems the most attractive, then all you have to do is get started!

  • Don’t Be Afraid to Use Logos

If your kiddo is into Batman, trains, cars, horses, or some other novelty thing, don’t be afraid to get creative and use logos to integrate their favorite themes. Oftentimes you can find stencils or wall decals in many different themes, providing you with the opportunity to take your mural one step further.

  • Go the Custom Route

Creating a mural for your child’s room should be a fun and creative experience, for both of you! Whether you have an artsy side or not, there are many options for custom sketches out there today. You can even search for a local muralist and have them draw up an idea for you, making various revisions until it is exactly what you had in mind.

  • Don’t Forget About the Corners

The corners in any given room are often under utilized, which is a shame because they offer a wonderful alternative to really get creative. Think about drawing an abstract sun in the corner of a door frame, using the door as a ‘cloud’ that the sun is peeking out from!

We hope you now have a better idea of how you can implement a fun and creative mural onto your child’s walls. Remember to check out our wide selection of children’s furniture for the perfect pieces to complement your final project!
