Epic Ideas for Designing a Boy’s Room
What’s “cool” for boys can change faster than you can buy paint. Since there are no hard and fast rules for what boys like, take your child’s tastes into account when you begin a design and you’ll have a boys room that he’ll love for ages.
Start with paint – red, blue or white work well. Consider buying a poster or a wall hanging of a cityscape. Then, choose bedspreads and sheets of his favorite superhero. Enhance the room with frameable wall art, like movie posters or vintage comic books. Don’t hesitate to use figurines and lamps, either.
Does he have a fascination with bugs? The solar system? Make that your theme. Find bug charts or star stickers that glow that he can help you put up to look like concentrations. Top it off with a bedspread that fits his interests that’s solid on the flip side.
Bikes and Cars
At some point, all boys have a fascination with cars and motorcycles. Even if you can’t afford a car bed, you can still enhance a room with inexpensive car blankets, pictures and wall hangings. If you can, get a professional picture taken of him on a bike or standing beside his dream car to blow up and post on the wall.
Whether it’s all sports or a select few, it’s easy to make this theme work with wall paper, wall hangings, soccer ball chairs and sports-themed bedspreads. Find lamps that match his favorite sport and put together a collection of baseball cards to decorate one wall. You could even paint a wall to look like a baseball diamond or a football field.
Designing a boy’s room can be fun for you and your child when you do it together. Choose a theme he’ll love and go. Visit http://pinterest.com/homeownerbuff/boys-room/ for more information.
