When it comes to decorating a room, Boys, I find, are a little more difficult to choose for. It’s a problem that persists with time! Like trying to pick a present for your husband, you only succeed if you really know the likes and dislikes of the young male in question! Boys are far more choosey than girls. With girls, you paint it pink, slap some sparkles on it, throw in a kitten in for good measure, and you’ve won! But with boys it’s different, they are particular and there are generally very few safe options that aren’t boringly generic!
A great way to overcome this issue for boys décor, is to pick a theme, one which your son actually likes. And of all the themes available, there is one that has stood the test of time… Comic Book Super Heros. I don’t know a boy alive who doesn’t love comic book super heroes! And one can have so much fun decorating a room with them!
Here are a few examples of some really great comic book hero themes for little boys:
First up we have Batman, the dark avenger! In this bedroom the designer has gone all out with gorgeous batman themed everything. The chest of drawers has been painted black with batman decals for handles, the side table is black with a big batman logo on it, there’s even a batman logo framed on the wall. But the best part of this room has got to be the batmobile bed!
Spiderman is another very popular choice for superhero themed bedrooms. In this picture the designer has kept it very simple. The whole bedroom has been decorated in specific spiderman themed colours, but the only actual hint of spiderman is the beautiful spiderman image on the wall.
Here the decorator has chosen Superman. In this bedroom the decorator has gone for a minimalist look, but has used furniture in white and the same bright pops of colour that make up Superman’s costume. I love the way this decorator has covered the cupboard with an actual captioned comic strip scene! Very cool!
