When your little baby boy is out of the crib, he needs a room that meets with his demands. A bedroom is actually established as his future cave until being a teenager and should show his personality.

What Kind of Bed Style and Size You Should Pick for a Boy Bedroom  Ideas?


Platform bed, low post bed, day bed, loft bed, captain’s bed or chest bed, Ottoman bed, sleigh bed, and trundle bed or bunk bed can be a good match for boy bedroom ideas and designs. But you can go some custom made beds or extreme makeover beds like a truck or boat. The twin size or full size bed is chosen related to the room size or sleeping habit of the boy.

Rug and Curtains for Boy’s Bedroom Ideas


If the theme is simple you can put the theme on the rug, if not always-plain color or very fine motives is enough for a boy’s room. The type of curtains you can use are: Tap top, Grommet, Rod Pocket, plain top and Cartridge pleat, sometimes lined curtains and flat panels can be a good match in your theme.

What Kind of Accessories Can be Used in Boy’s Bedroom Ideas?

Again the theme is the most identical clue for the accessories. Usually a boy’s bedroom has monograms, names, name tags, frames, toy style accessories and puffy  accent pillows like girl bedroom has.
