When you imagine a boy’s room, the first scenario that comes to mind is scattered toys, clothes on the floor, and just all kinds of mess. But that doesn’t have to be the case! When decorating a boy’s room, there are a number of things to consider like his interests and habits, and integrate those into his room.
Your primary goal here is to create a room that blends well with your kid’s personality, one that he will be comfortable in and he can proudly call his own. Here are some valuable tips to remember for your boy’s very own ‘fort’:
Find out what your kid is into and incorporate what you learn in themes and colors.
While there are common interests among boys, like cars, and sports, you still have to put in an effort really know the specifics. This is what’s going to set your boy’s room apart from others – the personal touch. Once you’ve got that down, incorporate it to some decorative details in the room. For instance, if he likes galaxies or anything space-related, get him some sheets with the same theme. On the other hand, if he doesn’t have one single favourite thing, mix everything he likes into the equation. With your youngster’s imagination, this could be a lot of fun! Include him when you choose the furniture and other pieces.
When choosing furniture, go for essential, practical, and playful pieces.
The most important thing about bedrooms is, of course, the bed. If you want your kid to truly enjoy in his room, get him a car bed if he likes cars or maybe a bed with sporty details if his dream is to become the next basketball superstar. The secret here is always being practical in your purchases. If you can score a bed with drawers, that will be perfect to store all his toys in! An even better choice is a two-tier bed with attached shelving and study table. This piece of furniture just screams fun as it’s not your usual go-to furniture for a boy’s room. Plus, it will also give the room more space and storage opportunities.
Finally, teach him the value of being organized.
If your boy is naturally messy, then no amount of redecorating can change that. But if he learns early, he will carry this on way beyond the corners of his room.
