When it comes to decorating a child’s bedroom in your home, there are a number of different things that you need to consider. One of the key points is the gender of your child, as the decor that is likely to appeal to a boy may be very different to the decor that will appeal to a girl. It can often be more difficult to decorate a boy’s bedroom without making it look a little bland and dull but there are tips that can help you to create the perfect look.
When you are decorating a boy’s bedroom, you need to create a space that will not only appeal to your child but will also be practical – for instance, making sure you have the right storage solutions in place. If your child is into things such as gaming and books he’ll need somewhere to store them unless you want them strewn all over the floor, which you clearly don’t! Also make the space a comfortable one so he likes spending time in there. For instance, invest in a comfortable bed such as one of the children’s beds available from Bedstar. Again, this sort of thing will make the room feel like more of a personal and comfortable space for your child.
Some tips to create a cool space for boys
There are a number of tips that will help you to create a cool yet practical space for boys when it comes to bedroom decor. This includes:
- Scatter some beanbags: If your child likes to have friends around one practical and affordable way to provide seating is to scatter some bean bags or beanbag cubes around the room. This will give them plenty of room to sit and won’t take up huge amounts of room – or huge amounts of money.
- Brighten up the storage: If you’re placing storage such as shelves and chests of drawers in your child’s room, why not brighten them up with a dash of colour? You can even re-use old furniture of your own by repainting it to make it more vibrant and give it a new lease of life. This will save you money and give your child essential storage.
- Wall mount the TV: If you are going to be placing a TV in the room, consider wall mounting it. This will reduce the risk of breakages if your child has an accident and will also leave more space.
- Have a desk in the room: It is also a good idea to have a small desk and chair in the room. This is ideal for your child to use his computer and to get his homework done in the privacy of his own room.
When it comes to things such as wall colours and designs, it is always a good idea to take your child’s interests into consideration and even get him involved in choosing colours. Again, this is something that can help to make the bedroom space feel like his own.
