Space Theme Mural Ideas

There are many aspects to space or the universe that can be inspirational.  The key here is to utilize color in space and not think about just black with stars.

Space can include distant planets, stars, moons, astroids, rockets, nebula’s and more!

Below are some different ideas on how a space theme could be created in your child’s room:

Space from Within

The room could be the spaceship and the mural is the control panel looking out into space.  There could be planets, galaxies, comets or even an alien craft in the distance.  Inside the ship can be buttons, levers, display panels and more.

Distant Planet


Go outside the space ship and be apart of a distant planet or moon to explore.  Vibrant colors that are outside of this world are a great start.  Then there could be floating rocks, hidden secrets of life, and more that can all fit within a color palette that you would like to use in the room.

Rockets and Plantets

There are many different ways to show planets, galaxies, or space rocks.  Along with rockets and space life in general.  These characteristics can add a lot to a mural and really bring it to life.

Flat Design


For nurseries or rooms that don’t need a large pop in color, flat designs for space can also be used.  These include simpler shapes and color tones but still offer a lot to explore.

Level of Detail Examples

There are many different levels of detail in a mural.  Higher detail usually has more color, tones, lines and components.  Low level detail is usually fewer colors, and less variety.  Depending on what is being painted, the level of detail may go up or down for things that require more attention.
