I have 2 sons, and I am so bored of seeing bedroom ideas for boys themed along the lines of cars, planes, sport or dinosaurs. Their tastes change incredibly quickly as they grow, so I don’t want to decorate their room with their favourite TV character – as they’ll probably have gone off it by the time I’m finished! But the choices for boys bedroom decor in many of the high street shops just seem to be pretty samey. So I’m interested in finding some cool boys bedroom ideas that will see them through the next few years.
By the way, I feel equally sorry for little girls too; if you don’t like pink glittery unicorns you’ve had it!
Insect Themed Boys Bedroom
Insects seem to carry both a fascination and a hint of edginess that many kids (both boys and girls) enjoy. You could create a cool insect-themed feature wall with wallpaper such as this fabulous one from Ebern Designs (on Wayfair):
Or, if this is too bold, then perhaps use some prints of insects, such as these by Marielle Leenders on Iamfy:
You could pick up some of the gorgeous jewel tones in the colours of the insects to use around the rest of the room too.
Stars and Space Themed Bedroom
There are a number of places you could go with this theme; a softer stars theme, with wallpaper such as this from World of Wallpaper:
Or a more grown up spacey theme with something like this from Arthouse Wallpaper:
There are lots of great bedding and accessory options available for this theme too:
Cactus Themed Bedroom
I absolutely love this cactus wallpaper by Muralswallpaper:
This would make a cool boy’s bedroom idea, providing a fresh backdrop to everything else in the room and again there are some brilliant accessories available:
Geometric wallpaper has been really popular the last couple of years and there are a vast array of wallpapers out there. Here are a few that I particularly like:
Again, if using patterned wallpaper on the wall is too much, you can pick it up in the accessories instead:
A Cool Video Gamers Themed Bedroom
I found this fabulous wallpaper for video gamers by MuralsWallpaper:
If this is too much there are also some great Wall Decals available, such as this one, by Amazon:
There are also some pretty awesome art prints out there too such as these from WallBuddy on Etsy:
