How to decorate a Boy’s Bedroom

Getting Started

It's no surprise that children spend a lot of time in their bedrooms ...the one place in the world they can truly call their own.

And unlike Mum and Dad, who have the rest of the house to roam around in - a boy's bedroom is a multi-function space that needs to work just as well for playing and socialising, as it does for studying and sleeping.

To create a stylish space that sparks creative minds into life, develops a sense of ownership, and delivers on comfort really takes some doing - so it makes sense to start with something that's likely to be a constant as his tastes and interests change; the wallpaper.

Just like the furniture and accessories that surround it, the wallpaper needs to reflect your son's personality, but with so many options to choose from, it's easy to get lost in the world of children's interiors. Here, we help answer some of the questions to help you get your little lad's new pad off the ground...

Where do I start

When it comes to interior decorating, boys and themes are a dream team, so if he's old enough - work together with him to pick out his favourite thing - and then use it to select the perfect boy's bedroom wallpaper. If he's football mad, think of the fun you can have with football-themed wallpapers, offset with a painted wall in his team's colours, covered in framed posters of his favourite players.

For first-time themes, nautical styles remain an established choice for young boys, so don't be afraid to push the boat out, and complement your paper with portholes and printed curtains to make the room pop.

Is the brand important when I'm buying wallpaper?

Selecting a specific wallpaper brand can be useful for narrowing down your choices, and if it's a brand you've used elsewhere in the house, you'll be safe in the knowledge that you're choosing a product from a company you know and trust.

However, here at HomeFlair, all our wallpapers are sourced from only the very best manufacturers, so whatever brand you choose, you'll have complete peace of mind that your wallpaper not only delivers on style - but ticks the box for quality too.
