What Houzz contributors are saying:
Oversized mapsWe all love maps on our walls (or so it seems according to the number on Houzz), and map wallpaper is increasingly a thing. This world map mural makes a brilliant feature in a child’s bedroom. Alternatively, try a blown-up vintage map – it can make a captivating feature wall, especially if it ties into your local area’s history.See more ideas for children’s rooms in the photos streamAre you back in love with wallpaper?

GeographicalA large, wall-mounted map is a classic touch in a kid’s room – fun and colourful, but educational, too. Kids love plotting adventures and this will help them learn new names and countries. It’s also likely to appeal to both older and younger children. In this room, the map mural works brilliantly along with the vintage-style metal lockers, wooden crates and fun ‘stuffed’ animal heads.Take a look at these other great ways to decorate with maps
Gaze upon the world with an oversized mapCreate a feature wall with some world map wallpaper. Although this is a kid’s room, you could easily give this a more grown-up look by finding a map in sepia tones, or keeping the rest of your room and furniture monochrome.Browse 10 fantastic feature walls
Hang… a world mapA wall mural is a fantastic option for a child’s bedroom or play room and this world map works wonderfully well, reminding your little ones that the world is their oyster! If you would rather not stretch to a whole wall covering, sticking a large map up with some pretty washi tape would achieve a similar look.
Embrace the whole world Dedicating an entire wall to a mural creates a real focal point in any space. Here, a giant world map lifts this playroom out of the ordinary, as well as giving the young residents a fun geography lesson.See how to use maps in your decorating schemeTELL US...Do you like incorporating oversized elements in your home?

Play the long gameChoose colours and furniture that will transition with them as they grow older. A map wall covering is fun for small kids and educational for older ones (and very useful for adult crosswords…), while the neutral storage and plain sofa will easily adapt if the room is restyled.
