How to decorate your child’s bedroom walls

To achieve a decor style that your child will love, identify their tastes and consider their favorite colors, figures, and cartoons. They’ll love being surrounded by interesting wall elements. Especially when we take into account that little ones also spend time playing in their rooms.

Decorate a child’s bedroom walls with a wall mural

Murals are a beautiful option to decorate bedroom walls, not only for children but also for adults! For your child’s bedroom, you can use a motive that excites and engages them. For example, if your child is an adventurer and a nature lover, paint a forest with animals in vibrant colors.

If you don’t have the skills to paint the mural yourself, don’t worry, you can have your ideas made into a photographic mural print. There are plenty of art and design professionals who can translate your ideas into colorful material. This can be very easy to apply to smooth walls.

Walls for artists

Children often demonstrate their interests and talents from a very young age. If you notice that your little one enjoys writing, painting, or drawing, decorate one of their bedroom walls with chalkboard paint. This type of paint allows children to draw with colored chalk and unleashes their creativity.

If the typical slate black color bothers you, there are gray, blue, and green color options available. Also, if you definitely want to enhance your child’s talents but prefer another option, you can apply an acrylic coating to the walls and draw on them with erasable markers.

Customize bedroom walls with adhesive vinyls

Adhesive vinyls for children's bedrooms.

The use of adhesive vinyl is becoming more and more popular in children’s bedrooms. With this material, there are countless options that you can choose from, such as names, abstract figures, animals, or characters from an animated TV program.

The advantage of this material is that it’s easy to install and comes in any color you can imagine. You can even combine adhesive vinyl with murals or with chalkboard paint.

Magnetic paint

Magnetic paint is a great option to decorate a child’s bedroom wall. Sheets of paper, photographs, and a wide variety of light objects can be temporarily fixed to the wall with magnets, without damaging anything.

This is a perfect option for children who like to delight their parents with works of art. What we like the most about this type of paint is that it’s painted underneath the final color. This means that the walls can still be painted in the child’s favorite color.

Before you apply this paint, take some advice from a professional painter so you know the amount of paint you’ll need and the level of layering that’s required.


Decorate children's walls with wallpaper.

Wallpaper is a common component in home decor and it works very well in a child’s bedroom. While it’s not meant to be painted or drawn on, if such an accident does occur, it can be easily replaced without additional trauma and expense.

Equally, wallpaper comes in a variety of incredible colors, patterns, and textures. So there will always be an option that suits your child’s personality.
