Bedroom Ideas With Sports Themes


    • Furniture for a sports themed bedroom can range from very basic pieces with a wood finish to more elaborate themed pieces. You can use metal pieces designed to look like sports lockers for wardrobes, dressers and nightstands. For rowdy young boys, sturdy solid pieces that can withstand some wear and tear are best. Wall-mounted shelving is ideal for displaying trophies and sports memorabilia. A serious fan with rare or valuable sports memorabilia to display may even make use of a lighted display case.

    Walls and Floor

    • The walls and floor of the bedroom provide ample space for decorative elements that will really pull the sports theme together. If you are decorating the room for a sports fan of a particular team, you can use the team's colors on the walls. Horizontal racing stripes around the room will give it a sportier look. Or, use wall stickers to complete your sports theme. FatHead.com offers wall decals in the form of team logos, generic sports graphics and life-size professional athletes. A floor rug with a baseball diamond, football field or basketball court on it, such as those found at CSNRugs.com, will tie the look together.


    • Sports themed bedding sets are available for almost every team and sport. You can create an all-encompassing sports theme with bedding that incorporates a variety of sports balls, from baseballs to soccer balls. Or, use a solid-colored bedspread in a favorite team's color and string wall pennants around the room as a decorative wall accent or as a valance over the window.


    • Creative finishing touches can really help make the sports themed bedroom complete. A framed jersey, a set of baseball cards or a poster of a favorite athlete will make for appropriate wall decor. Line shelves with trophies and sports memorabilia, and designate a special bulletin board for a collection of ribbons and game ticket stubs. Hang a bag made of loosely woven netting from a basketball hoop mounted to the wall for a laundry hamper. Leave plenty of wall and shelf space for the room's inhabitant to fill with his own mementos and favorite sports items for a room that will quickly become his own personal tribute to his favorite pastime.
