This “Around the World” theme will have your child sleeping in a room decorated with globes and maps and designs from around the world. The parents can further decorate their child’s room by placing large maps of the different continents on the walls or painting a huge directional mural of the world.
What Colors to Make the Room
When thinking of a color to paint your boy’s bedroom, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn that he likes other colors besides those of his favorite sports team. Many boys like bright color themes in their bedroom such a blues, greens, and reds, which are energizing colors much like your son is full of energy.
You can paint the main walls with blue, which always a good staying color to start with and then add in hues of greens and reds or orange for accent. Even when one color is no longer “cool”—the blue will remain in style.
Neutral Colors are Appealing
One can also use neutral colors such as khaki or sage green, these colors will bring color to the room and also permit the furnishings to be interesting to view.
A good color to start with for a girl’s bedroom is usually pink. When they are a little girl the whole room can be pink or a shade of it; and as they age you can add hues of soft pastel colors to accent their interests and personality.
Extra Storage Space
One thing to keep in mind with any kid’s theme you use to decorate their bedroom, kid’s accumulate a lot of stuff in which they are going to need a lot of storage space for their stuff. Have plenty of display space in which your son or daughter can line up and show off their collections, while still keeping their room neat and tidy.
Building (or installing) a wall-to-wall bookshelf is one way to do this without the clutter of a lot of furniture. Lower shelves can be used for storing the toys and books that are in need of easy access; the higher shelves can be for trophies, and prize items that they don’t want to get broken.
The number one thing to keep in mind when decorating your child’s bedroom is to remember it is their bedroom and they are going to have to live in it for a good part of their life. Therefore, it is important that you allow them to give their input in the colors and theme they prefer.
