How to choose a room theme for your child

August 31, 2008 at 7:43 am Leave a comment

Ask your child!

What would he/she like?

Don’t forget this is your child’s’ wall mural, not yours.
You might think a princess mural with fairies and flowers all cute and pink is the way to go, but she really wants a football mural.
Be careful with younger children. Get the idea of what they want and all their input at the beginning but don’t let them continue to add ideas on a whim once the project is under way. (I say this from bitter experience.)
With my own children I have made sure that what they want is not just a passing whim that will be forgotten a week later.

Talk and listen to them over some time to see what subject keeps coming up. Take your time, don’t rush into a decision unless you intend to change the room frequently.
Make a list of their interests and hobbies. The key is to eliminate those which you know to be just the latest fashion. Fashion changes quickly, sometimes overnight. Hobbies and interests are likely to stay with your child throughout their lives.

Take a look at some of the children’s room themes we cover at the Magic Mural Factory. This may give you and your child some inspiration for a wall mural.

If the theme you are looking for includes a mural, but you can’t find a DIY mural that suites your needs, consider a custom designed Paint by Number mural.

Above all have fun.
