Is your child an athlete or a sports fan? The sports theme has plenty of options when it comes to room design. You can go with a subtle touch or an all-out sports theme in the bedroom. Find inspiration in these ideas.
Starting with a color scheme helps you choose other decorating components. Blue and red are common colors found in sports-themed bedroom decor, such as bedding. Find a bedding set you like to help with choosing the color scheme. Another option is to use the colors of your child’s favorite sports team if he has one.
An inexpensive decoration tool for the sports theme is the sports pennant. You can find them inexpensively for any team. They add color to the wall and are easy to hang. Push pins work just fine to hold them up since they are lightweight.
Pennants also work as a homemade valance for the windows. Hang the pennants with the point down. You can overlap the pennants slightly and sew them together to make it look like one long valance.
Sports Wall Decor
You’ll find a variety of wall decor with the sports theme. You can go with a general sports theme, focus on a specific sport or buy decorations with your favorite team’s logo. Look for signs, wall decals and paintings that have the specific sports focus.
You can also hang up actual sports gear to decorate the walls. Mount a baseball bat or hockey sticks to the wall, for example. Or spell out your child’s name in hockey pucks hooked to the wall.
Another option is to paint a mural on the wall. If you feel comfortable with a paint brush, sketch out a sports image, such as a baseball diamond or a scoreboard. Paint in the details. You can also hire a professional to paint the mural if you don’t feel comfortable with it.
Round out the sports-themed room with some fun accent pieces. This might include a lamp, beanbag chair shaped like a sports ball, basketball hoop on the wall or rugs shaped like sports items.
