Zoom into fun with creative boys’ bedroom themes.
Are you ready to throw away the rule book? That’s part of the fun when it comes to boys’ bedroom themes. Perhaps your little man likes to walk on the wild side, gear up for car racing or save the day on a regular basis. Whatever it is he loves to dream about, it’s entirely possible to create a bedroom that encourages his soaring imagination.
Decorating a room, for boys aged around four to eight years, is also a chance for you to let loose with those bold, crazy and even silly ideas you’ve always wanted to use. Don’t hold back when it comes to bright shades, wacky walls and innovative decor. By using simple taping techniques, geometric patterns and stencils, together with a vibrant colour palette, you’ll match his energy with a room that races towards fun.
Before we launch into adventure, it’s important to set the room up for practicality as well as fun. Get the basics right with smart storage solutions and multifunctional furniture to see him through the years to come. Bunk beds with hidden storage save space and allow for superhero sleepovers. Separate storage cubes act as chairs, display units and race tracks.
Opt for an all-in-one shelving and desk unit, baskets and boxes that match your theme and cupboard organisers to make the most of space. With the practicalities taken care of, there’ll be plenty of space for both playtime and functionality. Most importantly, make sure your paint design is up to the task with Dulux Easycare on the walls, to repel stains and easily wipe away those little fingerprints.
Most little boys dream of having a car bedroom. This creative design puts a roadside straight across your child’s wall for a room that drives him from A to B. Fresh, energetic colours breathe life into the space and add a natural feel to depict real life scenes. While it looks like professional artwork, all you need is some stylish stencils and easy painting techniques to achieve the look.
To bring the driving world to life, paint a backdrop of green and matching trees with Green Parrot 2. Summer Medley 3 introduces the sky to the scene and Pebble Drift 1 gets you on the road. Use contrasting colours for the all-important cars, like Sun Dust 5 and Chalky White 3. For a harmonious feel throughout, pluck shades from the wall to match with bedding and accessories in your car bedroom.
