Boys bedrooms can be boring places. A mash up of blue, beige and grey with a smattering of discarded clothes and unloved toys. But who says boys’ bedrooms can’t be stylish?
Well not us. There are many things you can do to make your boys bedroom a more eye pleasing place and give your child a room that stimulates him and looks amazing.
Below you will find a selection of our favorite ideas, schemes and tips for boys’ bedrooms that look great and are practical. Whether you’re looking to create a vibrant place to play or an eye-catching nursery, we’re sure you will find something among these ideas that will fire up your imagination.
All boys love cars, whether they are three, ten, or forty years old, so why not turn their bedroom into a car themed paradise. Car shaped beds can be found at most furniture stores these days and a liberal use of bright paint and some industrial looking tool drawers can give any room that garage va va va voom.
Sticking with the vehicle and transport theme, why not fill your little boy’s walls with pictures of cars, trains and helicopters that allow their imagination to run wild. Keep colors neutral and let the pictures add a splash of invention that your child will really respond to.
For a more rustic look to your little boy’s room, why not add some wood panels or shelving to the walls for them to hang pictures or store toys on.
Indoor Climbing Wall
So, here’s an idea that’s a little bit from left field but bear with us. Children love to play and explore. Boys especially love to get out there, or more appropriately, get up there and climb anything they can get their hands on.
If your child’s like this then why not have an entire wall in their bedroom dedicated to climbing? A sheet of plywood, some climbing notches are all you need to let your child’s imagination take him up the largest trees and along the steepest mountains.
Is your child a teenager? Does he like skateboards or BMX? Then satisfy their extreme sports itch with a snowboard (or equally any other extreme sport) themed room. Wall stencils and a few snowboarding related posters will set the room’s mood.
If you are (or know) a good electrician then you could turn an actual snowboard into a light or lamp to really make the room pop.
All boys dream of flying, whether that’s in a helicopter, airplane, or with a cape on their back like superman. Tickle their flying itch by putting airplane miniatures on their walls to give their room a stylish flight themed appearance.
Super Mario Theme
Oh man! Now this is my type of room. Who doesn’t want a room themed around their favorite pixelated plumber? Again, a decent Mario wall stencil, some posters and maybe a Mario duvet are all you need to bring back the heady days of Super Marioworld.
Fuel your little one’s dreams of soaring above the clouds and over the highest peaks with a mountain themed room. Mountain stencils are readily available online and are an easy way to create stylish walls that your boys will love for years to come. Add some height with shelving or, a wardrobe and a few bookcases and your boy will feel like he is truly on top of the world.
If you are looking for something simple to style up your little boy’s room then nothing beats a few stars to make them think they are in a galaxy far, far away. Starry wallpaper, stencils, or stickers will make any room feel out of this world.
Ahhh Jim Lad. Ho, ho, ho and a bottle of rum. Well maybe not the rum. This is a child’s bedroom after all. Set your little boy’s imagination alight with images of the high seas by adding soft blue wall paint, a nautical sea chest and some pebbles and shells.
Blue Chalkboard Dresser
Bring a little bit of school fun to your little boy’s bedroom by designing a chalkboard themed room. This cheap and easy solution for creating a bright and tidy looking room can be achieved with just a little paint and some bright text. Take a look at the picture above to see how you can really make your child’s furniture stand out.
Another easy and simple solution for brightening a child’s room that will also add a bit of educational value to their surroundings is an alphabet theme. A few bright letters stuck in order on the walls and some alphabet themed ornaments and trinkets are all you need to turn the room into a den of grammatical learning.
