No matter what your little boy’s favorite sport – whether it’s baseball, football, basketball, soccer, tennis, or golf – you can win big with him when you give him a custom bedroom designed in his favorite sports theme, including a custom sports theme bed.
Obviously the first thing to do in coming up with the perfect sports theme bed and sports theme bedroom decor is to decide on which sport to use as your theme. Would he rather a basketball, soccer, or a football theme bed – for example. Of course if your boy has one favorite sport, then this is easy; if he has several, on the other hand, then you may want to ask his input on this all-important part of the process before continuing.
Once you’ve decided on a sport for your theme, the next thing to focus on is the centerpiece of the bedroom – the bed. Because as much fun as you want it to be for your boy to play in his room, it is first and foremost a place for him to tuck his weary head at night. And so the custom bed is the core essential element of any sports theme bedroom. So again, will it be a basketball, football, or soccer theme bed your boy would prefer?
Some parents may choose to have a simple bed off to the side of the room in an area designed to look like the bleachers or, using the example of a basketball theme bed, a penalty box. This option has the added benefit of leaving the bulk of the room’s space open for play.
Alternatively, you could opt for a custom boys bunk bed that incorporates a bit more of the given sports’ elements and places them centerfield (so to speak).
Whichever you decide, another advantage of a custom theme bed is that you can artfully incorporate all the storage space you need into the design. You can have a toy chest for his sporting accessories built in; a closet or wardrobe for all his uniforms; a shelving unit for displaying all his trophies. Whatever your needs, the right custom childrens theme bed designer can help you incorporate it into the bed and/or the rest of the bedroom decor.
After you’ve come up with the custom sports bedroom design, you can then turn your attention to the bedroom decor. To start creating your boy’s custom sports theme bedroom decor, it may be easiest to first work on the design for the floor and walls – both of which should be quite easy to decide on.
For the floor design, look at the turf on which his chosen sport is played. For a soccer theme bedroom or a football theme bedroom a green carpet or green area rugs will be perfect. For a basketball theme bedroom then a more solid floor, like hardwood, may be in order.
You can soften the impact your boy’s rough-and-tumble play might cause by laying down mats. You can even have the mats be the color appropriate for the sport. You can further enhance the feel of him being on the field or on the court playing his favorite sport by including on your floor design the standard markings appropriate for the given sport.
The walls of a boys sports theme bedroom can heighten his experience of being the superstar athlete bringing home the winning points by encircling the room in a mural of stands filled with excited spectators. That way he won’t just feel like he’s in training for his turn at the big leagues; he’ll feel like it’s always game day itself.
A flashy scoreboard up high on one wall can act as both a design element to enhance the sports theme bedroom decor and as a key source of incidental lighting for the room. And whatever you do, don’t forget the goal posts, goals, baskets, bases, net, or other equivalent focal point of his favorite game. That way he can always be shooting for the big win.
Just like the big win you’ll have with him when you present to him his very own custom basketball theme bed, soccer theme bed, or football theme bed and boys sports theme bedroom decor.
