Is your young son’s bedroom in dire need of a makeover? There is always the temptation to just paint the walls a basic colour and leave it at that, however if you want to give your boy a room that he would be absolutely fascinated and thrilled to bits with, and also create more space for other furniture, then you need to check out these 10 bedroom design ideas for boys!
1. Cabin beds
Cabin beds are perfect space-savers for small bedrooms such as box rooms. They have convenient storage drawers underneath the mattress, which is really handy for storing away toys and even clothes.
Matching bookshelves will complement the design of the cabin bed, and chester drawers are another great space-saver for storing clothes in a bedroom where wardrobes might otherwise take up too much space in there.
2. High sleeper beds
These high sleeper beds like the ones from BedzRus.co.uk are another fantastic space saving idea! Your lad can have his desktop computer, laptop or TV & games console set up underneath the bed, with enough space for a desk chair and a futon for him to lounge around on, and a built-in ladder enables him to easily get up and down from his bed.
High sleeper beds are ideal for box rooms where space is at a premium.
3. Adventure bunk beds
Who said that bunk beds have to be really boring, horrible metal things in a child’s bedroom? This example from German manufacturer Woodland is more like a 2 square metre adventure area rather than a place for sleep!
Bunk beds of course also have the advantage of being able to get two kids sleeping in the same room instead of one.
4. Tropical surf shack bunk bed
If you have just discovered you won the lottery, then why not treat your boys to a tropical surf shack bunk bed for a mere £10,600! The one that’s bagsied the top bunk will be able to climb up the ladder at night and then go down the slide in the morning – what an awesome place for kids to sleep in!
5. Contemporary bunk beds
If you like your home having a simplistic and minimalist feel, then perhaps a more contemporary bunk bed solution might be up your street. This bunk bed design from DesignFab looks super cool and super stylish!
This example makes good use of space in a corner, and offers a mid-sleeper and high-sleeper bed – perfect if your lad wants to have a friend stay over, or if he just fancies a change of scenery every so often!
6. Thomas the Tank Engine bed
If your boy loves Thomas the Tank Engine and is fascinated with trains, then you just have to get him this official Thomas the Tank Engine bed! Featuring a solid MDF construction, this awesome bed also has two storage boxes up front for him to put his toys or clothes in.
The canopy is also removeable too, but I bet he wouldn’t want you to remove it!
7. Bilbao storage bed
Is your son’s bedroom really tiny? If that’s so, then you will be looking for ways to maximise the limited space in it, and this is where the Bilbao storage bed comes up trumps.
It includes four drawers and a small cupboard that is fitted into the base of the bed – what a perfect place to store toys, clothes and other items!
8. Twin beds – football themed
Interior design experts Homesmiths have come up with this really subtle yet stylish football themed bedroom which features twin beds. If you have two sons and they are both football mad, then they will love this design!
9. Super Mario themed bedroom
Is your son a Super Mario addict? If so, then you could do what father Nathan Roberts did for his son back in 2010 and create a Super Mario themed bedroom for him!
10. Space themed bedroom
For those boys that are fascinated with space, why not create a space themed bedroom for them? An inexpensive way of doing this is to buy some wallpaper that has a dark blue background with some stars on it, and a clever use of some vinyl adhesive planets will make them think that they are cruising through space!
