If you have a child who can't get enough of stories about knights and castles, a medieval-themed bedroom is a visually exciting and enjoyable choice. Think about the stories your child loves and consider how to blend these stories into your child's space. There are many ways to change a boring bedroom into a medieval fantasy.

Castles were draughty places, and tapestries were heavy cloths that were hung up to block out the wind. Hang up colourfully printed tapestries to cover up boring white walls. Choose tapestries that have dragons or knights on them and tack them up on your child's wall. They will provide visual variety and a way to get a colour theme going in the child's room.
Murals are painted on the wall and the provide your child with an enormous picture to enjoy in their room. Illustrate a scene from your child's favourite medieval story or paint a number of their different favourite characters. You may choose to have the mural professionally done, or you can paint it yourself. One option is to rent a lightbox and project an image on the wall, allowing you to trace it.
If you are looking for something more subtle, choose a medieval-themed border that is placed near the ceiling or at waist level. Choose a border that shows knights going off on an adventure, or dragons attacking castles. A border is more subtle than a mural, but it is still a good way to bring in the knights and castles theme. They are widely available from craft stores and home improvement stores.
Stained Glass Decals
One hallmark of the medieval age is the stained glass window. Since stained glass windows are pricey, purchase stained glass window decals, which can be affixed to the window easily. These decals colour the light coming into the child's room, giving it a dramatic look. Choose decals that the child can colour or design himself.
