With kids clothing and decorating, the general consensus is that girls are more fun. Girls’ clothes have more options and styles than boy’s clothes. You could go as far as to say the same thing is true for boy’s rooms. Basic blues and green, brown and maybe some orange accents are typical “boy” colors for decorating boys’ spaces. This doesn’t mean that boy friendly spaces have to follow the rule or be boring. Creating a great space for your son can be just as much fun as decorating for a daughter.
Popular themes for decorating boys’ rooms revolve around common interests for boys: sports; robots; space; transportation; dinosaurs; and comics. Using a theme from a favorite classic movie or game can be the jumping off point for decorating a boy’s room. Pick up colors and patterns common to the theme and use them for bedding, walls and flooring.
This boy’s room doesn’t have a theme décor yet still feels perfectly suited for a growing boy. Navy and white curtains are a classic pattern in a classic color combination that can outlast the latest obsession with space, boats or sports. Using classic patterns on textiles makes the design more versatile so it can grow as your son grows.
Keeping the floors and walls in classic neutrals can also help the room grow with your child for either gender. Wood floors with area rugs provide ideal surfaces for play, setting up trains, racing cars or making a fort. Versatility is the key when decorating a kid’s room.
