If you have children, then you are probably aware that they love to decorate their bedrooms and bathrooms with posters, pictures, and wall decals. After all, plain walls are boring, and that’s no fun. Fortunately, there are plenty of wall decal designs that can be used to enhance your child’s bedroom, while making for a more exciting atmosphere. Not only do decals help to take the bedroom to the next level, but it is also the perfect way to display their favorite movie and comic characters.

Of course, this can be achieved through the use of wall posters, however, posters are far less customizable, and they can look very tacky. By using custom wall decals, you can create images that are specially tailored to the desires of the child, not to mention they are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. Here are some of the coolest wall decal ideas for children and teens.

Harry Potter Decals

Unless you have been living on a desert island for the last decade, you have probably heard of Harry Potter. Harry Potter is an extremely popular series of books and movies, and the characters are loved by children (and adults) across the world. There are many different concepts to consider when creating wall decals with a Harry Potter theme. First of all, you may want to choose a life-sized picture of your child’s favorite character, such as Harry, Ron, or Hermione. You may even want to have decals created depicting all three characters, and spread them throughout the bedroom. Harry Potter decals even work for teens that are living in college dorm rooms.

There are numerous other Harry Potter related images that work well as wall decals. In fact, the movie titles themselves make perfect banners to announce the theme of the room for those unfamiliar with the series. The school where Harry and the other characters attend is known as Hogwarts – a large building that resembles a castle. This castle could be used as the centerpiece, and the various characters can be placed around it, as it will help tie all the decals together. Seeing as the characters in Harry Potter can fly on brooms, you may want to show Harry and his friends riding brooms and place the decals on the ceiling so it looks as if they are flying in a circle around the room.

Marvel Comics and Movies

The ever-popular Marvel Comic series encompasses a wide range of different characters and storylines, and this makes it well worth considering when deciding on wall decal ideas. However, Marvel is not only based on comic books, as they have released dozens of hugely popular movies over recent years, covering an expanse of varying themes. Some of the most well-known Marvel characters are Spiderman, Ironman, Captain America, Hulk, and Wolverine.

One of the best thing about Marvel characters are their wonderful designs and stunning colors. If your child’s bedroom uses vibrant colors, like red and blue, then you will surely want to consider characters that match these colors, such as Captain America or Spiderman. Another great idea to go along with a Spiderman theme is to make a wall decal that resembles a giant spiderweb sprawling across the bedroom. Then from there, an image of Spiderman can be strategically placed within the spiderweb.

Perhaps the most popular of all the Marvel Characters these days is Ironman. In fact, the most recent Ironman movies are ranked as some of the highest grossing movies of all time. When using an Ironman theme, consider placing a life-size decal of Ironman flying across the walls of the bedroom. If you are familiar with the series, then you know that Ironman has many villains that he must battle, so you may want to make an action decal with Ironman battling one of his nemesis’.

Similar to Harry Potter, you may want to put the title “Ironman” or “Spiderman” in bold letters to add to the theme of the room. Of course, this can be placed along with the characters, so that even those unfamiliar with comics will be aware of the characters that are being displayed.

Wonder Woman Decals

While comic book characters are for everyone, Wonder Woman is a prime choice for girls who are looking for an exciting theme for their bedroom. Wonder Woman wears an array of colors, so decals can easily be matched with nearly any surrounding décor. But what is even better is the fact that Wonder Woman wears a lot of gold trim. This means that a Wonder Woman wall decal can be matched with gold bedroom items like lamps and dresser drawer handles. In addition, Wonder Woman has a terrific logo, which is essentially two W’s combined to symbolize the words “Wonder Woman”. One of the best ways to implement this logo is by placing it on the bedroom door. If you are a true fan, and your parents will allow, you may even want to place it on the outside of the door for added effect.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Decals

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are four Turtles that help in fighting crime. Each Ninja Turtle has their own set of talents, weapons, and also different colored headbands and trim. If you are looking to cover all four walls of your child’s bedroom, the Teenage Ninja Turtles are an excellent option, as one Turtle could be placed on each wall. If your child has a preference of one of the Turtles, then you can create a decal of that specific Turtle and base the theme of the bedroom around the color of the Turtles headband. For instance, one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles named Michelangelo wears an orange headband. A decal of Michelangelo would match perfectly with a bedroom set that has orange trim.

Fun Decals Can Take Your Child’s Bedroom to New Heights

When it comes to a child’s bedroom, it is imperative that there be adequate wall decorations or else it will look plain and boring. And while certain decorative items like posters or photos may help to enhance the appearance, wall decals are a far more versatile solution. Wall decals can be customized to desired color patterns, shapes, and even sizes. Not only this but with wall decals, you have the ability to create life-sized examples of your child’s favorite movie and comic book characters.

There is perhaps no movie that has been as popular as the Harry Potter series, and it is for this reason that they make for great wall decals. With so many different characters, there are a seemingly endless number of choices. You may want to consider placing each of the three main characters on separate walls and place the Harry Potter logo on the remaining wall to compliment the theme. For a unique idea, try placing decals of the characters riding brooms on the ceiling, just like they do in the movie.

If you or your child are into comics, then you will surely want to consider creating decals from your favorite Marvel Comic characters. As mentioned, there are dozens of vibrant characters from Marvel so there is sure to be something for everyone. For instance, Spiderman, Ironman, Captain America, Hulk, and Wolverine are all from the ever-popular Marvel comic book series. Have your child choose their favorite character or two and make a life-size decal of each. To add a fun twist, consider adding one of the villains from the comic series so that you can have elements of both good and evil.

Whether your child is a boy or girl, Wonder Woman makes for an exciting wall decal. As with other comic character decals, a life-sized decal works best. However, unlike other superheroes, Wonder Woman has a fantastic logo, which can be placed on the bedroom door or the wall. Not to mention, the gold in the logo can be easily matched with lamps and gold dresser drawer handles.

If your child enjoys the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, then you’re in luck. Since there are four Ninja Turtles, you can place one on each wall. In the case that you only want to feature one of the Ninja Turtles, then you can choose one that matches the décor of the room. For example, Donatello wears a purple headband, and this can be matched with bedroom trim that is purple in color. For the avid Ninja Turtles fan, you may also want to add characters such as the Turtle’s mentor, Splinter or one of the many villains in the series.

There is no shortage of ideas that can be implemented when designing wall decals for a child’s bedroom. By creating life-sized decals of their favorite characters, you can make a unique and colorful living space that is sure to impress any visitor. Not to mention, wall decals can be fully customized, so they will fit in any space, and even on the bedroom door.
