Decorative Bases for Boys' Rooms


When decorating a boys' room, the usual starting point is the choice of a bedding for boys. From here you can start to choose the color you want to paint the walls and how you want to accent the room, making it both a creative space for learning and a quiet space to sleep. There are many ways to decorate a boys room, but here are some important but simple suggestions that you might find useful.

Wall Color

Choose one or two colors for the walls that will complement the boys' bedding that you have chosen. A color should be more neutral for the majority of the space. The second should be a default accent color. An example would be that if you have a surf boys theme bedding set, you can use a pale blue for the main areas and a deep navy for the accent wall.

Shelves and Storage

It is always nice to find shelves or storage units that fit the theme of the boys' room. An example would be to buy silver metal shelves for a very modern or electronic style room. Or classic white for a nautical space. To complete a boy bedding set that is either characters or something like dinosaurs, you can paint a wooden bookshelf or bookshelf in a complimenting color and then look for books of books that are dinosaurs.

Baskets Baskets Baskets …….

There is always room for one more basket. The most popular for boys is metal mesh but you can also use baskets in fabric or wicker. It's a great place to store items such as collectible cards, baseballs, figurines, and more.


Try to incorporate an office in your boys' room where he can quietly do his schoolwork. A good way to keep the area quiet is to use a room divider. The divider can be done in a way that incorporates the theme of the piece by either adding painted color or placing posters. A good idea on the desk side of the partition is to attach cork and use it as a display board.

There are countless decorating ideas for the boys' room, but it is very important that you get involved in the decision making process. Sometimes this may seem impossible if you want to go out elegant but involve them in giving simple choices. Green or blue? White or wood? Surfing bedding or dinosaur bedding? By helping to make the final decisions regarding his room, your son will really feel like owning the space and will then be free to relax and learn there.
