If you were searching for boys’ room decorating ideas while trying to make it last, avoid an adorable truck bed or a sailboat. The more you are head over heels with them now the more likely you’ll get tired of them. 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 artwork and bedding depending on what he is into now, and then change them as his passion changes.
Here are some boys’ room decorating tips for ROOMS TO GROW with you kid:
- 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.
- 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. Check out here how to do it.
- Get a good quality rug. Stay away from the ones with dinosaurs and puppies since you will get tired of them quickly.
