The Space Bedroom Idea for Boys
Space – the final frontier. Many kids especially boys love the idea of becoming an astronaut and going to space someday to experience inter-galactic adventures. While exploring celestial bodies maybe a fantastic idea, decorating your son’s room in a space theme is a totally doable thing. Not only will it teach your son about science and astronomy, you will also have created a wonderful room where exploration and science is appreciated. Here is a guide on how to start decorating a space room for your little one.
The Walls – When decorating a space themed room begin with the walls and ceilings because these play a central role to the theme you will create. If painting use a paler blue on the walls to mimic the sky and the ceiling a darker blue to represent space. Then adorn the ceiling with plenty of glow in the dark stickers or decals of planets and stars. This creates a dazzling effect! When the lights are turned off it then becomes a planetarium like glow that can really be mesmerizing.
If painting the walls and ceilings is out of the question, you can still just hang some space memorabilia on the walls. Posters of the planets and the stars will work here. You can also get a poster of the US space shuttle as a central focal point and design everything around that. For the ceiling you can add a solar system using Styrofoam balls as the planets and then correctly label them as such.
The Bed – Any bed will do in a space themed room but if you really want to go one better then you could get a bed in the shape of a spaceship or a space shuttle. There are kid’s beds available patterned out of spaceships inspired from classic science fiction movies. However, a normal kid’s bed with a headboard that has an engraving or stick ons of the planets would be an easy choice for your son’s room. Once again all of these products are available on line.
Probably the most requested and popular bedding by kids are space inspired. There is a lot of space bedding themed products available at your favorite bedding store or online.
You can purchase a comforter that is adorned by stars and planets. Add some accent pillows in the shape of a rocket ship or the moon for added effect. What young child wouldn’t be ‘over the moon’ with all this!
The Accessories – Get your boy a nice and funky lava lamp that mimics extra terrestrial terrain. Or space lamps that have a space theme fit the bill here. You can add a telescope that you can put by the window so he can look up at the stars anytime he wants. Depending upon their age you can opt for a real telescope here or a toy one will do. Finally add a life sized astronaut figurine that you can put by the bed or the door for added company.
Keep your son involved in the decorating aspect of his own room by asking him to draw his favorite planets and stars. You could then hang them on the walls as part of the décor.
