Where to paint a mural in your child’s room

August 3, 2008 at 8:44 am 1 comment

Take a good look around your child’s room, and ask yourself the following questions.
Your answers will determine the size and type of wall décor you choose.

  • Where are the main pieces of furniture are going in the child’s room?
    (You don’t want your wall art to be partly hidden behind that bookcase you forgot was going on that wall! Or disappearing behind the head board!)
  • Are there are to be any other wall décor elements to be included in the room or any existing ones to stay?
  • Is there any large object or furniture that you may want to include later that may take up some wall space?
    Make a note of the heights and widths of any objects. It may help to draw a very pale chalk mark on the wall where these objects will be.
  • Is there something you would like to disguise?

After answering these questions look and see what wall space is left?

  • A whole wall?
  • The whole room?
  • The ceiling?
  • The floor?
  • Above the bed head?
  • Opposite the bed?
  • On a piece of furniture?
  • Either side of a window?
  • Above a bookcase?
  • Around a toy box?
  • Over a fireplace?
  • On a door etc?
  • Where do you would like the focal point to be?

Now you can see what space you are dealing with and you can choose how to fill it either with a kid’s mural or child wall art. It could be large or small.
It’s up to you.

The Magic Mural Factory have a great range of DIY paint by number murals that are designed to be painted around doors (Doorhuggers), or around a bed or bed head (Bed huggers) and smaller murals for over shelves, and other pieces of common bedroom furniture.

For example look at these ones

 Princess Room theme Bedhugger


 Spaceman and Alien Doorhugger. (Part of the Alien Planet mural selection)

Vine and Corner fairy mural (Part of the fairy mural paint by number selection)
