Use Wall Murals To Decorate Your Childs Room

Designer

A muralist is someone who paints large images on walls and ceilings.  Murals are an impressive looking way to decorate a room.  You do not have to be a professional like the famous Spanish muralist Jose Maria to create your own wall murals for kids rooms in your home.  Wall mural stickers are an inexpensive and easy way to cover a wall.  Or, you can use stencils, or paint free hand, and create murals your way.  Whichever method you choose, you too can create a striking mural in any room of your home. 

Murals can be used to decorate living rooms, entry ways, and even dining rooms.  But, kids rooms are really the new medium for the modern home muralist.  Although it takes years of training to be able to paint murals that even the famous muralist Jose Maria would be proud of, you can still make your murals your way and be very happy with the results.  Some home mural kits contain stencils and wall mural stickers to make the process easier.  The choices are as limitless as your imagination. 

Creating wall murals for kids is a fun summertime project.  Getting your kids involved will teach them responsibility and give them a sense of real accomplishment.  They will even have something to brag about to their friends during slumber parties.  While painting can be messy, most kids find it fun.  If you want to avoid the mess, then you can use wall mural stickers instead.  When creating wall murals for kids rooms, it is always a good idea to let them help pick out what is going on their wall.  Since kids are going to spend more time in their rooms than anyone else, wall murals for kids should reflect their own personalities.  The best way to do that is to let them choose what is going on their own wall. 

The great Spanish muralist Jose Maria created hundreds of murals in his lifetime.  Most of these murals depicted peasants and farm workers.  Murals in the style of muralist Jose Maria are not really appropriate for your childs' room.  What you as a home muralist are looking for is a way to make murals your way with images and items that are age appropriate.  Common themes for wall murals for kids include popular kids movies and television characters.  You can use wall mural stickers to create a scene out of the movie Finding Nemo or the Nickelodeon television shows Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants.  A good way to make these murals your way would be to paint the background scene on your own, and then apply wall mural stickers against the background to create a scene.  Add word bubbles, and you can create your own unique and humorous scene.  You could even change the word bubbles from time to time to add surprise and variety. 

Anyone can be a muralist.  It takes some courage to paint large images on any wall in your home.  But, with stencils and stickers that you can find at almost any art supply store, you can make your own murals for not a lot of money.  Murals are an attractive alternative to boring wallpaper.  They are also an interesting conversation piece, and can spark your child's imagination.  A child with an active imagination can get lost within a wall mural, helping them get to sleep.  Remember to let them help pick out what is going on the wall. You do not want them to resent what you have done to their room, and end up drawing all over it in black magic marker.
