When decorating your child's room, painting the walls can be a great place to start. Not only will this help create a backdrop for the rest of the room's décor, but it can also be a fun way to ensure your child is involved in the decorating process. Of course, a simple coat of paint may not be enough to add personality and style to the space. A mural, however, can be a great accent. With these tips, you can design and paint an appealing and personable mural in your child's bedroom.
Consider Professional Help
One of the first tips to consider is that using professional help may be best. Painting a few walls is something most people can do. However, painting an actual design on the wall is not in everyone's skill set.
You may think DIY-ing will save you money. Unfortunately, having to repaint mistakes you made will only end up costing you more in time and materials. Therefore, hiring a professional mural painter can be a smarter investment.
Hiring a professional does not necessarily mean you are not in on the design process. In most cases, you can have the idea in mind and the professional will bring it to life on your child's bedroom walls.
Think Beyond Your Child's Current Age
Many parents want a mural that represents their child's current stage in life. For example, if your child loves bunnies or a certain superhero, you may want these interests to be the topic of the mural. Unless you are using a decal to create the mural, paint will be used, so you should want the mural to be relevant for a good amount of time.
To design a mural that works beyond your child's current age, think outside the box.
A garden scene, space, or even mountain range are good options because they work with a variety of age groups. In addition, small details can be removed or added as your child grows. A large tree design with or without flowers, leaves, or animals can also be a unique mural for children.
If you prefer a more modern or contemporary mural, consider a city scene. Even a stadium, field, or symbol that represents a family's favorite sport's team are options for your child's bedroom mural.
Creating a mural in your child's room can be a fun way to decorate and add personality. These tips will help you get started designing the right mural. For more information, reach out to a wall mural design services.
