Below you will find several darling design ideas that will make your little man jump for joy when he sees his brand new bedroom and all it has to offer!
Planes, Trains and Automobiles

What little boy isn’t infatuated with anything with wheels? Isn’t your carpet cluttered with everything from Hot Wheels cars and John Deere tractors to Thomas the Train engines and Lightning McQueen? Why not design a bedroom for your little truck driver that features engines and wheels and everything in between.
Your little boy’s bedroom could be designed based around vehicles in general and anything with wheels, or you can be specific in the design and focus on either trains, trucks, or tractors, etc. If you choose to focus on just one moving machine, start with the bedding. Find bedding that showcases the type of vehicle you have chosen along with the color scheme you like.
For example, in this fire truck bedroom the bedding provides inspiration for the rest of the room design. A barn red and cream color scheme tie in nicely with the color of fire trucks. The artwork above the bed is a definite focal point and really gives the space some charm. Shelving is always an appropriate must have and can be used to display trucks and toys, or books and trinkets. Always accessorize the space with coordinating lamp shades, floor rugs, and window treatments and you are good to go!

You can’t go wrong with a sports theme design for a boys’ bedroom. No matter what his age, a bedroom decorated with balls, bats, mitts, and hoops is sure to please. You can focus on designing his room around his favorite sport, or simply decorate the room in every sport he enjoys.
Try to remember that when designing a little boys’ bedroom, or any room for that matter, you don’t have to go overboard. You don’t even have to be matchy-matchy in terms of artwork, window treatments, or bedding. Just try to make sure everything coordinates, and that there is a definite focal point in the space. Sometimes the focal point is the bed, and other times it may be artwork or window treatments.
In the above room, the statement Less is more rings true. The obvious focal point in the space is the large abstract basketball decal on the wall. Simply bedding with a pop of color in coordinating orange gives the room a very simple but sleek feel. The room is definitely masculine and would be perfect for any young sports’ enthusiast.

For that little cowboy in your life, why not give him a room that represents his love for everything cowboy. Ropes, hats, boots, and spurs go a long way when used as bedroom décor for a little guy. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
Check out the super cool wood paneled headboard on the bed in the above picture! Rustic and rugged, as well as the perfect place to hang your hat, this headboard serves as a terrific design inspiration for the rest of the room! In addition, the headboard provides an amazing avenue to really personalize the room. And a little boy’s name written with a rope? What’s cowboy wouldn’t love that?
