Sports-Themed Room Design Tips
If you spend a lot of time doing home re-decoration projects, you know that interior decorating is a reflection of your personality. If you have kids, they may want their bedroom to do the same for them. Kids love having a bedroom that really expresses something about their personalities. You can work with your child to develop a themed bedroom to help them have a space that is uniquely their own. One popular type of bedroom for kids is the sports theme. For most kids the sports that they watch and play are a big part of who they are. A sports-themed room decoration project can really help your son or daughter feel involved in the home décor as well as provide some quality time with them.
What Sport Do They Like Best?
You may have a little athlete that excels in a few sports. If so, you can incorporate several types of sports into the bedroom design, but it is important to try and pick one that is the dominant theme. For this example we’ll use baseball as the dominant sport theme. Talk to your child about doing a baseball themed room and get some ideas from them. A good tip is to ask them to come up with three to five words or phrases that sum up what they like best about baseball. An example list might look like this.
- Their favourite player/team
Design Around These 5 Words
Once you have five good words, get to work. Start off by picking colours. In this example, your child’s favourite team was the number one pick. Find out the team’s home colours, if you don’t already know them, and begin painting the room in those colours. Choose the primary colour as the main color for the walls, and use the secondary colour for trims, doors and furnishings. This step alone will do wonders for the bedroom.
Work Down The List
Once you have the colours on the wall, start adding the extras. There are some cool life-sized player decals available online at stores, like FatHead, that can go up on the walls. You can also order team logos, or you can paint one by hand if you have the skill. A baseball bat rack can be easily attached to the wall. Put some team memorabilia and some books on a bookshelf and use baseball mitts as the book ends.
You can let yours and your child’s imagination run wild on this project. Start off basic and add as you go. There is so much sports memorabilia available, so you should have no problems finding the right extras to add to the room. A favourite for most kids is to get a jersey with their name on the back of it. Buy two, one for them to wear, and one to display in their room in a shadow box. You’ll love the reaction that you get from your child and they will love the effort and time spent together with you on the project. Have fun together!
