Bedroom styles reflect our tastes and ideas that are put into action and brought to life, showcasing our individualistic method, presenting to guests what our likes are when it comes to decorating, and putting a room together. As adults, there are so many choices, making the process of selecting the right pieces for our bedrooms a tad bit tedious. Some of us are picky with organization and symmetry, sometimes feeling overwhelmed before we see the finished product. If we don't already have some blueprint guiding us the situation becomes a bit more complicated and that's a lot of us in this world. Now, imagine you're a young boy, not knowing where to even begin, that's a daunting task for such a young kid but luckily, adults have a semblance of direction and it'll make this whole ordeal a heck of a lot easier. We want that little boy's bedroom to be a reflection of who they are, kids usually have an idea as to what they like so make sure to follow along on themes that will make their room pop with color, texture, and personality.

A boy's room isn't usually the biggest we want to give the illusion of a bigger room and the best way to do so is with a nicely hung and secured mirror, a great way to help them develop their visual senses, to allow them to see how they'd want to look and dress, it gives them a chance to explore their individualism, develop their own identity, and what better place to do so than in the comfort of their bedroom? To add onto the mirror, another way of enhancing a little boy's bedroom is wallpaper. There are assortments of distinct wallpapers to pick and choose from to diversify their bedroom; from oceans to stars to palms, don't be afraid to experiment with different prints to bring out their personality.

When it comes to bed sheets for boysthere are gender-neutral options to pick from, it doesn't always have to be blue or dark tones, color is an expression, and boys aren't just boxed to dark and somber colors; if you want to go for a simple yet effective color combination, going in the monochromatic direction makes it fairly easy to pair and to bring out lighter colors. If you're having issues with colors clashing, black and white is the safest route to go, and given that most boys sleep in a twin bed during their younger years, simple black twin bedding sheets paired with some white pillows will make a whole lot of a difference and you'll thank yourself later when laundry day comes around the corner. Aside from that, neutral tones can go a long way, pairing some sage greens with some taupe tones can bring a sense of simplicity but overall personality. Boys' twin beddingnot only has some simplistic designs but some beautiful prints will make any room pop; polka dots, animated cartoons, stripes, the choices are there. Don't be afraid to experiment with bedding and make sure to let the little one have their final say, they are a part of the creative process and will be the ones using those bedding sheets for when they sleep.

 

Little boys' minds are like sponges and they are ever growing with knowledge. We want to nurture their curious minds, and what better way to do it than by giving them books? Expanding their minds is crucial for their overall development; we want them to be engaged and auto sufficient so instead of having books lying around, why not make a set of shelves to not only display their books but their artwork as well? Yes, we want the little boys to be able to show off their preferred reading materials and their masterpieces for the world and welcome guests to see. It's a perfect way for them to develop their organizational skills, and build confidence when selecting and displaying their choices.

One thing I've always wanted in my bedroom as a little boy was the opportunity to have my very own bunk bed but alas, my parents didn't trust me for fear of me jumping or falling off as I slept but there are safety measures not involved, and new and fun furniture to make the most of any room. For example, bunk beds nowadays now have a safety mesh to ensure your little man doesn't fall and hurt themselves; with that being said, the bunk beds available are fantastic in the fact that they use the bottom part as a mini office for boys, to keep up with their sense of personal space and pushing their productivity in being able to handle simple tasks, perfect for homework, for video games, how I wish I had something like this when I was younger, I'm jealous!

Speaking of organizational skills, a fun way to bring out any little boy's taste all the while keeping the room tidy is with the use of baskets. Designated baskets can make the difference between a room that looked like a tornado swept through it or a room that would make the most organized of adults question if a child is keeping their room so clean, I should know, I was very tidy as a child and this is something that can be taught at an early age, and can be made fun as well! Having some cubbies with some storage bins will train any little boy how to put back their personal belongings away in their designated bins, especially if they're labeled accordingly; here's a fun tip, having those bins labeled with bigs letters and with what needs to go in those bins will encourage children visually and keep their minds focused on what goes where, this will become a long-term skill that will prepare them for life as an adult.

All in all, we want little boys to express themselves and what better way to express themselves than through the comfort of their bedroom? We want them to feel cozy, we want them to express themselves, and having the chance to show their interests, favorite colors, and furniture is essential to their development in early stages of their youth, and it will set them up for success
