One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to spice up any bland and boring kid's bedroom is by using the art (literally) of murals. Two others are fabrics and mirrors. This article will show you how to use all three to create a room that will wow any little girl's senses.
Surely your little girl already has pictures up in her room - pictures of friends and loved ones and fond memories, pictures clipped from magazines and color-printed off the web, and pictures she drew and colored herself. This is where you'll find your inspiration for the bedroom wall murals that will most excite and enchant her.
There is scant a single little girl who isn't captivated by beauty, who doesn't love to surround herself with beautiful things. So treat her to the bedroom renovation that she'll cherish her whole life long making her room as pretty as she pictures she finds most beautiful.
One of the greatest advantages to you of murals (as suggested above) is cost, as paint is one of the cheapest interior design materials you'll ever buy.
And if your little girl is lucky enough to have her own custom theme bed, you can complement the colors, theme, and design of the bed with those you select for the rest of the room. Alternatively, you could opt for a total rehaul of the room décor and paint the custom theme bed anew too. A blue, gold, and white princess castle bed, for example, can be transformed by being repainted pink with lavender borders. You can even paint a full 3D mural on the custom theme bed itself since, after all, a custom theme bed is a three-dimensional picture-scape just waiting to happen.
Fabrics are another way to make a little girl's custom bedroom that's as pretty as a picture and as vibrant as she is. From lace borders to canopy beds to custom bedding to window dressings to children's furniture reupholstering, fabrics can transform an entire girl's bedroom in one fell swoop.
When it comes to those images your little girl finds prettiest, there's little doubt that her own adorable face is one of them (and if not, it should be). Help her to highlight that picture she finds prettiest - that of her own image - with the use of mirrors. A full-length mirror on her closet door is almost a necessity. As is a dressing table with an ample mirror before which she can sit and experiment with hair styles, fashion and jewelry combinations, and (eventually) make-up.
You don't have to be a fabulous artist to create a custom theme bed that is as pretty as a picture. Just ask your little girl - she'll tell you. Better yet, give her the paintbrush and she'll show you.
