Bedrooms for kids are so much fun to decorate! There’s practically no limit to the potential and no design rules to stand in the way. For many, the most enjoyable part has to be the walls – they’re like big fresh canvases just waiting for bold colors and fun designs. This post examines nearly two dozen kids bedrooms with inspiring walls to help kick-start your next big redesign. Whether you’re looking for kid-friendly color palettes or fun ideas for artwork and wall decor, these ideas are easily adaptable to fit your child’s own interests and preferences. There’s something here for youngsters of every age, from toddlers to teens.
These adorable butterfly stickers are easy to find online but a paper punch is all you need to make your own. The reindeer lamp is called MARNÌN, designed by Matteo Ugolini.
Not only is the wall mural extremely fun, its distinctive collage-style animals are sure to foster an appreciation for art and creativity. It might even inspire kids to make their own collages out of leaves and flower petals and other things they find outdoors.
What do you do when those littles ones start growing up and want a more sophisticated style? This wallpaper is absolutely gorgeous – interesting enough for a young person, but stylish enough to be appreciated for years to come.
When kids share a room, it can be hard to find a middle ground that reflects the personality of each. This room uses two different wallpaper prints to make sure everybody’s happy.
Neutral colors aren’t very exciting by childhood standards, but they make it easier to change the other accent colors in the room without worrying about clashing. The row of houses above the molding and the fun alphabet panels below help tie the walls back into the colorful decor theme.
Chalkboard panels are perfect for the bedroom of a creative child! If you don’t want to paint a whole wall, just paint a sturdy piece of plywood and mount it securely, as this designer did.
These walls have several interesting things going on: the color (a mix between coral and orange), the exposed white brick, the playfully arranged prints, the large fairy mural… It will take a long while for a youngster to grow bored of this one!
Designed for a young space enthusiast, this space makes great use of a chalkboard wall for scribbling notes. The addition of the flat moon lamp completes the theme.
What a great idea! A grid of ropes securely holds stuffed animals and turns them into a smart source of decoration for the nursery. The calm yellow and wood theme throughout the rest of the walls help maintain a peaceful environment conducive to sleep.
Little house-shaped shelves create a whimsical effect on the right and square cabinets on left keep things a little more serious for those hardcore study sessions.
Inspirational phrases, Toy Story prints in lovely frames, and a big plush headboard make this delightfully pink room even more special and personalized.
Fun zig-zag shelves put a creative spin on wall storage (heavy-duty bookends would be a must-have though!) and creative letters decorate the otherwise minimalistic wardrobe.

The corner tree shelf might be too big of a project for most DIY fans, but those clouds and raindrops would be easy to make with some stiff cardboard and leftover fabric. The placement of the decorations does a wonderful job of highlighting the light blue accent wall.
Here’s another tree themed bedroom – this one is incredible. Kids’ room decor should stimulate the imagination and this sculptural installation does just that. Above the sofa, lovely animal prints extend the forest theme.
While this is obviously a restaurant and not a bedroom, the mountain and umbrella theme would be a cool look to try at home. The mountains are a candidate for a weekend DIY project if you’re handy with a circular saw or can find large enough pieces of sturdy poster board.
A full-wall map combines the best of both education and decoration. Kids and teens alike are sure to appreciate their enhanced understanding of geography later in life.
It’s hard to coordinate artwork sometimes. These matching illustrations offer a nice uniform appearance and will likely remain relevant as the child grows older.
Light mauve walls and soft upholstered panels help this room feel comfortable and calm, surely appreciated during study time and while trying to fall asleep at night.
Displaying memorabilia often requires creativity, and these nice wall-mounted stands help turn a sports collection into a form of gorgeous decoration. The shelves over the bed are quite nice too!
Here’s another sports-themed room, this time aimed toward an older teen that wants to impress with a suave and refined style. Black is an easy go-to wall choice for older kids who want to stand out but don’t want a lot of color.
What kid wouldn’t want a climbing wall in their room? This is almost too cool for words! Both rungs and rock climbing holds encourage healthy exercise. This lucky young resident could even use the wall holds to reach the collection of toys (from the movie Cars) on the upper shelves to the right.
A large soccer field decal spices up this sport-themed study space, and the wrap-around shelf emphasizes the unusual wall architecture. The composition of the decal is interesting and worth mentioning too: rather than an ordinary photograph, this one is a creative design with a close-up shot of grass with a field line overlay.
Storage walls are always useful! Colorful teal and orange cubbies hold photos, books, and decorations for parents and young ones to appreciate.
