Boys’s Room Decorating Ideas

BOY'S ROOM DECORATING IDEASIf you were searching for boys’ room decorating ideas, you certainly fell in love with that adorable bed shaped into a cute truck or, perhaps a “sail boat” bed caught your attention. They sure look like fun!  The only drawback is that it will only last for a few years before he grows out of it.  This means that his cutest kid’s bedroom furniture will go on the Craig list at the prices that will bring you to tears. 

If it is time for your little boy to make a move from the dinosaurs era and you want his room to last,  themes are not a good idea.

So, be a smart and make your boy’s room into a cozy, fun place with no themes attached.

Your boy does not care as much as yourself about the look of his room, right? All he cares about is that his favorite toys are there.

His interests and obsessions will change very quickly as he grows, so think about boys’ bedrooms ideas that are easier on yourself and your wallet. This does not always mean that you should buy the cheapest stuff, but rather things of the best quality you can afford that are not “themed” and will last you longer. Well, of course you can still choose inexpensive art work and bedding depending on what he is into and then change them as his passion goes into a new game or trend.

Here are some boy’s bedrooms ideas for rooms to grow:

1. Buy full size bed if space allows you instead of a twin size bed.  It will take your boy to get used to it but he will be more comfortable later.

2. Paint the  walls instead of wallpaper. You can  paint stripes or create an accent wall of different color to make it fun. It is much easier than repairing torn wallpaper.

3. Get good quality and vibrant rug. Stay away from the ones with dinosaurs and puppies since you will get tired of them quickly.

  1. I totally agree with you Marina, boys do not really care much about the look of their room. It’s really great that moms like me get reminded of this every now and then, so as to save us the added burden of redesigning our son’s room, buying new furniture, and looking for buyers for the old ones. By the way, the bookshelf looks really cool!

    • Well, they do not care…but so many times the little boys would proudly show it to their friends. Even this boy, the one whose room I designed, after it was finished, walked in and said,” MY woom wooks gweat!” I will never forget this moment because it was a lot of work but worth it.
