It takes more than a display of his favorite collection to transform an ordinary boy’s bedroom into a custom fantasy theme bedroom, though that’s an excellent start, as it gives you both a perfect clue as to what kind of custom fantasy theme bedroom to build.
Designing a custom boy’s bedroom around your son’s favorite interests will give him a place where he can sleep, study, and play in an environment that stimulates his passions and keeps him inspired. The following are some ideas of how to combine custom theme beds and other design elements to create fantasy theme bedrooms your little boy will treasure long after he’s outgrown it.
Outer Space theme: Give your little boy a galaxy all his own, starting out using wallpaper, stickers, or stencils to create a outer space atmosphere full of stars, moons, and planets, maybe even a meteor shower for good measure. Then add elements that appeal to your little astronaut like space age lamp, lighting fixtures, and other furnishing, along with alien posters, and models of spaceships, rockets, and satellites. Speaking of spaceships, rockets, and satellites they also make great futuristic custom theme beds.
Sports theme: Sports themes are incredibly popular with little boy’s of all ages. Whether your son prefers baseball, basketball, or football, you can paint the walls and choose fabrics and floor coverings in his favorite team’s colors, and then fill his room accessories like jerseys, pennants, and posters. Even if your son enjoys sports that don’t have such major league status – softball, track, gymnastics, soccer, surfing, karate, fencing, fishing, or golf – you can still find ways to create a shrine to his beloved athletic activity for him to live in. And don’t forget adequate shelving to display your son’s own trophies, plaques, and other records of achievement. Also, if your little boy loves NASCAR, you can design them their own private racetrack, equipped with a custom theme bed in the shape of a sports car or race-car.
Medieval theme: What little boy doesn’t imagine himself as King of his own castle? And what little boy doesn’t dream of being the valiant knight in shining armor that defeats the powerful dragon, discovers its stolen treasure, and saves the nearby townspeople from peril? Imbue these visions of valor into your son’s daily life with a custom castle bed, his very own castle, battlements, drawbridge, turrets, and all. Blue area rugs, carpeting, or floor mats make a great moat, and on his walls you can paint a sweeping vista of the medieval village he protects and the neighboring enchanted forest. For furniture, subdued but regal tones may be in order here. Simple colors emulating steel and stone with slight ornate flourishes to evoke that air of royalty.
And those are just starter ideas. Consider also:
· wilderness themes
· construction themes
· circus/carnival themes
· prehistoric/dinosaur themes
· historical themes
· and more!
