Beach bedroom lighting is as important as the bedroom accessories to give a complete beach decor feel. Go for lamps that have a beach theme to it. Clear glass lamps filled with shells or figural light house shaped lamps give a wonderful look to the bedroom. Dim lighting is always the best for bedrooms but when it comes to the beach bedroom decoration then we want to give a sunny feeling to the bedroom. So go for soothing lamps rather than making the bedroom dimly lit.
Sports Bedroom Walls
The best way to decorate the sports bedroom is with soft shades of his/her favorite wall colors. By using soft bedroom colors the walls will highlight any and every type of wall decor and accessories giving the room a bright look.
Once the sports bedroom color is selected next comes decorating the bedroom walls. The simplest way to go about it is by selecting an appropriate sports wallpaper border and it can be easily found in any store. You can also try painting your kids own wall murals. The best part is you can add as many sports as you like till it is not looking over crowded.
Sports Bedroom Furniture
If the bedroom is for younger kids then the furniture can be in bright or pastel colors complementing the sports bedroom wall colors. If you are looking for a long time investment then consider using plain furniture and then to give a sports look add different sports theme stickers to it. The sports bedroom furniture should be in neutral colors like the light shades of wooden color.
The sports bedroom furniture can’t be complete without the sports bedding. There are many different colors and prints of sports bedding and you are sure to find something matching with your sports theme room. Another great idea is to use plain bed sheets
and pillows shams and then finally add a sports comforter.
Pillows are a wonderful accessory for any bedroom theme when decorating
it. While selecting pillows to deck up your boy bedroom decor go for soft and cushiony sports themed pillows, oversized fish pillows, fuzzy pillows shaped like cars and trucks, and many other unique styles. They can do wonders for your sports theme bedroom or any other boy bedroom decor.
Boy Bedroom Themes
There are ranges of boy bedroom themes available that can make your young or teenage son go wow! Let’s take a quick look at some of these bedroom decor themes.
Favorite Animals: every boy has a special liking about one animal or other. Whether it’s a dog or cat, bird or rabbit, use it as a theme to decorate your boy’s bedroom. Add lots of pictures and stuffed toys to give the bedroom a friendly look.
Rustic Cabin: Camping, mountains are some of the things that boys are really fond of. So how about going for a rustic bedroom decor with comfortable plaid patterns, flannel fabrics, and log or pine beds? Add some bedroom accessories with forest themes of animals, mountain scenes, or natural materials such as pine cones, leaves, and sticks. Your boy is simply going to love this bedroom decor.
Bedroom curtains play a very important role in giving the room the desired look. Today there are a variety of curtains to select from. Some bedroom curtains you will find in soft plain colors while there are other bedroom curtains that give an elegant touch to the bedroom. Other than style the curtains have a very important usage as well. Whether you want to keep the light away or warm up the room from the chilly weather or need complete privacy; curtains are a must.
The most important thing before selecting any curtain is to take a close look at the windowsill. Carefully measure the length and width. The next important thing to decide is how far the curtains will hang like whether you want them at windowsill height or hang till the floor. Then come the rod sleeve and the hem. You have to allow inches for each of them and in contemporary bedroom curtains the larger the hem the better.
Once the bedroom curtain length has been decided, the most essential part is over. You can have the curtains finish just above the window ledge or just below the window ledge, but make sure your curtain pole is mounted far enough from the wall so that the curtains hang freely and don’t touch the window sill. If you are planning for floor length curtains then make sure they finish just before the floor and don’t drag on the floor.
Lining is also part of curtain selection. Curtain lining can add to your costs but it’s essential if you need extra seclusion, wadding or soundproofing
in the bedroom. Lining also make curtains hang better if they are made of lightweight material.
Style And Bedroom Curtains
Once the length, color and texture of bedroom curtains are decided then comes the style factor that plays a major role in bedroom curtain decor. The curtains should match the bedroom decor style. So pick the fabric and color that will complement the bedroom wall colors, bedroom decoration and the bedroom theme.
