Mural painting can be a fun way to get kids involved in the bedroom-decorating process, and is a creative way to round out a themed bedroom. Here are some theme ideas with mural suggestions to create a fun, lively child’s room.
Give a kid’s room a makeover with a Treasure Island wall mural.
Treasure map: give one bedroom wall an aging treatment to give the appearance of parchment. Create a treasure map with paths, cryptic messages, and an “x” to mark buried treasure: Use family or neighbourhood names to personalise this wall mural.
Desert island: paint one wall of a bedroom a sandy light brown colour: Add palm trees, rocks, and seashells to create an exotic tropical setting. Offset the sandy tone with a rich, watery blue on the other walls.
Ship’s cabin: create a unique ship’s cabin wall mural by painting a series of portholes, or circular windows, at eye-level across one wall, then paint a watery ocean view through each “porthole”. Paint the rest of the wall to resemble dark brown wood planks, and add nets, crates, barrels, and even a pirate’s parrot cage.
CIRCUS or CARNIVAL
A circus or carnival theme is a great way to add colour and energy to a kid’s bedroom. Here are mural ideas for this kid’s room theme:
Ferris wheel: get inspired by images of vintage ferris wheels to create this wall mural.

Refreshment stand: bring the tasty treats of a carnival into a kid’s room, with a colourful refreshment stand mural.
Hot air balloon: simplify a wall mural project by painting one wall sky blue: Add a vibrant hot air balloon in an upper corner, or front and center to create a colourful focal point.
WIZARD of OZ
The children’s classic book by L.L. Baum translates easily to a kid’s bedroom theme.
