If you've decided to order a wall-painting or by other words a mural for your office or house from a professional painter, it's better to have an indication what would be a price that you would be asked to pay in Israel.
The standard price of square meter of wall-painting in Israel costs around 500 shekel. Yet, there are number of factors that can raise or lower this average price.
Size of wall-painting:
In this particular case size really matters! A big mural will cost more than a smaller mural.
Quality of paints used:
Some kinds of paints used for wall-paintings are really costly. Usually bright paints cost much more than paints that are less vibrant. You should take that fact into consideration when you lets say comparing between 2 different painters' propositions.
Level of detailness:
Some murals are real works of art and the other are more like something that's supposed only to cover wall with a color. Murals that include a lot of details cost much more that simple murals that contain only basic forms and colors.
Surface that's supposed to be painted:
Some smooth surfaces are easily to paint and they are require little amount of paints to reflect the image wanted. Yet, raw surface require extra work and paint to reflect the images, so they cost much more to be covered with murals. In some cases it will be cheaper to smooth out your wall before painting a mural, than to order a mural on a really raw surface.
Height and placement:
Wall-paintings that need to be painted at high places like ceiling or a ladder is required to paint them cost much more than murals that don't require such an extra effort.
The factors mentioned above can really influence total price that you will be asked for a wall-painting. It is necessary to be aware about those in order to fit your budget.

Each country has its own tradition of wall paintings. It depends on popular fairy tales and cartoons in particular place. For example, in US and Canada you most children rooms are full of Disney characters. In Muslim countries you find mostly floral and animal patterns. In Israel strangely enough you see mostly Disney characters together with some popular anime motifs. Though sometimes people ask to paint some creative things for their kids as well.
Here is a couple of examples of wall paintings for kids rooms in Israel:
