Boy's Bedroom design and inspiration
“Boys will be boys”, they say. Our little boys will act silly, be dirty,
and play outdoors like there’s no tomorrow! Though these young lads
like to have fun under the sun, they won’t probably admit that they
wish to have their own bedroom and style it with their room décor of
choice. While most Filipino families prefer to sleep together all in
one room, it is no denial that creating an extra bedroom for our
youngsters can be a great investment since they will need that as
they grow older. Boys, in specific, long to have their personal space
for sleeping, studying, and of course, indoor recreation. It follows
that their space should be a reflection of their little
personalities. It’s easy to get lost in the world of children’s
interiors which is why we’ve listed some great tips on creating a
fun, practical, and comfortable bedroom for your little kid!
Explore your imagination with fun themes
it’s sports, the great outdoors or super heroes, themes for a boy’s
room should be adventurous and fun. When designing your kid’s room,
look to what he loves and what he’s interested at. Celebrate your
son’s individuality by showcasing his interests, whether basketball
or computer games, taekwondo or model airplanes.

soccer, tennis, and even Judo Karate. Why not collect a few
accessories from his favorite sport and display it in shelves, or
even have a wall mural that is adorned with team players playing the
game? Maybe frame up autographs of your son’s favorite player and
hang it to the bedroom wall? Or even go all out if your son is madly
in love with soccer and place a kiddy goal net at the edge of his
bedroom? The options are unlimited when it comes to sports! With
these fun sports bedroom ideas, rest assured that you would change
the boring atmosphere of your kid’s room and transform it to a fun
place where he can relax and enjoy his sports interests.
computer games is one more hobby that boys love to do. Try
incorporating characters from the game to his room by purchasing
small figures and displaying it on shelves and side tables. You can
even get him a game themed set of bed linens.
ideas from your son’s aspirations in life too. Does he want to be
an airplane pilot or a marine captain when he grows up? Integrate
components in your boy’s
that will scream “pilot”, “captain”, or whatever he wants to
be. Display airplane and ship models or maybe hang wall murals of
ship docks and plane cockpits. The ideas are boundless when it comes
to getting imaginative with your son’s ambition!
Get creative with your colors
the right color scheme is as significant as the other essential
components of your kid’s bedroom. It is important that it matches
the theme you are aiming for in the room. Ideally, boys love the
color blue, so you can settle with the safe choices which are shades
of blue. Sky blue on the walls layered with bed linens, curtains and other accessories in a darker
shade of blue will create a strong look he will love. You can add a
pop of vibrant colored pattern with pillows. Other classic neutral
colors include brown and grey. Bright shades of orange and red are
great options that can create a space for your young lad to love
through the years of his growth. If your son’s bed sheets are
screaming with prints, you better stay with a clean, basic wall
pattern or one with a single or double stripe on the bottom edge. You
can also go all out with multiple colors and patterns on your kid’s
wall but keep the other parts of the room under minimal designs.
Choosing wood as a central material in the room expresses earthy
vibes in the room and is one creative option too.
Functional furniture is the choice

basics, take a look at your child’s daily activities and decide
what they need from there. Consider your goals for the room’s
function, theme, and style when choosing furniture.
furniture, especially pieces with built in storage, makes efficient
use of space. A bed with built-in headboard shelves or under-bed
drawers does double duty. The usual double-purpose bed in the
Philippines ranges from 16,000-12,000 pesos. A shelf beneath a
nightstand is a great place to store a stack of favorite books or to
hold a basket full of toys and stuffed animals.
playing area and study area can all be in one corner of the bedroom.
You can set up a play table for your son while it also acts as a
study table for his homework. Built-in wooden shelves are great for
holding toy cars and small books. Plus, wood hides fingerprints and
is available in a wide range of shades.
Cool decorating ideas
boy’s bedroom should be a reflection of his unique spirit; hence,
decorating the room is one great way to express it. Hanging up
chalkboards, educational posters, and maps are great examples because
not only does it bring vibrancy to the room but it also gives
convenience to his learning progress as a child. Moreover,
personalizing your kid’s bedroom with fun and spunky wall and bed
decors will also show his personality.
easy way to personalize your son’s bedroom is to display photos of
him playing his favorite sport or taking part on a musical recital.
You can also gather your child’s prized collections together and
display them in small vignettes around the bedroom. Keep in mind that
collections have a tendency to grow, so plan ahead in optimizing
space. Furthermore, you can make your son feel special by using his
name as a wall décor. Try incorporating it to a wall mural or
stencil his initials on the wall. You can also spell out his name in
big block letters along a shelf. Hang his precious art drawings and
paintings on one side of the wall too.
for bed sheets, one cool idea is purchasing bed linens with prints
that your son is crazy about. Racing, for instance, is his main
interest, so purchase sheets and pillows with printed race cars or
cartoon racing characters.
Lighting decors are very important as well. Place a cool table lamp by his bed side
and one on his workplace area. You can even go creative by attaching
tiny lighting bulbs along the bedroom wall.
