Creating an imaginative boys bedroom for your own little superhero can be a really fun challenge. With a little planning and some creativity, your lad can have a ‘super’ bedroom of his dreams that will also feel as good when he gets older.
Here are our tips for planning the perfect bedroom for growing boys.
BEDROOMS FOR BOYS UNDER 12
Having a central theme will help keep the design focused. Otherwise, you may end up with a room that is just an explosion of random colour, which may not be so popular!
A favourite option is to decorate your son’s room in his favourite football team colours. His team may also have its own wallpaper design, which can have the effect of brightening up the room, giving it that extra touch of character.
Go for matching duvet covers, pillows and curtains are an option, and you may even be able to find an official team rug. You can certainly find a football themed bed at Carpetright. A striking rug provides a great focal point as you enter the room. For the finishing touches, try adding team lamps and bins, pictures of some of his favourite players, and other forms of memorabilia.
Of course, football is only one theme. Whether your boy likes superheroes, animals or space, there are fantastic options available.
SHARED BEDROOM IDEAS
With a teenager, flexibility is the key as what they’re into fashion wise can come and go very quickly. Try to keep the décor classically simple and concentrate on statement furnishings that will adapt to his growing needs and your pocket!
If you plan your boy’s bedroom correctly, you might just find that he is proud enough of it to keep it tidy, at least until the novelty wears off or the growing pains kick in!
