When it comes to decorating a boys bedroom it’s a good idea to think about the design before jumping straight in a decorating in the style of their latest fad..Decorating isn’t generally a quick task so it’s not something you want to be doing every 6 months every time your son changes his favourite toy. I would stay clear of character themes for now especially when the children are younger, decorating to the likes of Thomas the Tank Engine when they’re 3 and rapidly finding that the latest bedroom want is Spongebob Squarepants!
Sticking to one colour is a good idea, you can easily change accessories when needed without going to the extra hassle of changing the colour of the walls or wallpaper.
If you have a smaller room and storage is perhaps at a minimum then it’s a good idea to consider a cabin bed or a custom made bed and storage solution like these boys bedroom ideas from Homify, giving you the ability to get the most out of the space you have:
Chalk walls are a fun and great way to fill an empty wall or wall space, you can buy chalk paint at most hardware stores these days so it’s an easy design look to achieve. One thing I would recommend however is adding a small wooden shelf at the bottom to catch the chalk dust!
Lego walls are something I’ve seen on Pinterest and it’s a really great idea actually as Lego is pretty long standing as a toy and it will also encourage creativity in your child. You can scour the likes of eBay to find lego in bulk as my only issue here is that Lego is pretty expensive to buy new…but there are bargains to be had, once you’ve got your base wall sorted then you can simply add Lego over time and then have fun creating new structures!
Bottom line is there’s loads and loads of boys bedroom ideas out there it’s just finding one that best suits yours!
