Decorating your son’s bedroom creates a special place just for him to enjoy. Whether he’s into sports, outdoors, cars, animals or anything else, you can find a way to incorporate that into the room décor.
The Great Outdoors
Tap into his love for nature with an olive green and tan color palette. Incorporate some of his favorites like stuffed animals, dinosaur models or fossils. If he prefers the water world, think turquoise or any shade of blue. Maybe consider adding an aquarium, or an undersea mural would also add a nice touch. Camouflage and animal print lend themselves nicely as “colorful” neutrals in this nature-inspired sleep habitat.
Neutrals and sleek lines provide a clean space where he can grow. Monochromatic color concepts are perfect here in whatever shade he prefers. If that’s not for you, consider a dark gray with white or black accents. Kids rooms don’t always have to include primary colors. IKEA offers modern furniture lines at affordable prices. Make it museum-esque with a wall of him. Whether it’s a special cord to hang his best paintings and drawings or a modern organization structure of boxes and cubes, his favorite objects can be within reach in this cool pad that will continue to grow with him into junior high and high school.
Whether he plays them all or has a favorite, highlighting his favorite round ball is always a win! One wall for each sport or a Fat Head of his favorite player is one option. A shelf for trophies and medals is also a great way to showcase what he is passionate about and enjoys. Maybe even find an old score board for a nice nostalgic touch. Framed jerseys hung and shadow boxes of tickets and other keepsake memorabilia add nice personal touches for the sport-enthusiast in your house.
Cars and Trucks
Wave the checkered flag as you race to the finish of this fun decorating idea. Use a base color scheme of red, white and black to begin. Utilize any old tools as knickknacks or a license plate hung as art. To find cheaper tools and car parts, consider visiting a U Pull & Pay and picking out what will find your space best. A fun car track rug is perfect for allowing his imagination to drive full-speed-ahead as he has a world of his own for all of his Hot Wheels.
No matter what form the décor takes, creating a much-loved space for your son simply comes down to knowing what he likes the most. Is he always in the dirt, tossing around a ball or working on model planes? Whatever tickles his fancy should be the starting point for customizing his bedroom. Stick with a budget and have fun. Decorating is a form of art, so beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
