Designing a children's room for boys

When decorating your boys' nursery, we recommend that you design the room around a theme that your kids particularly like. As they will be spending a lot of time in their nursery, it is very important that your boys feel comfortable and cosy in it.

Children usually communicate their wishes clearly, which is why you should always involve your kids when designing their room. This also promotes a sense of community! It also allows your little rascals to build a personal bond with their self-designed room.

Classic themes for children's room design for boys include FEUERWEHR, animals or dinosaurs.

Furnishing the boys' room in the right colour

When it comes to the right colour for boys, most people think of blue or green. In fact, there is little reason not to decorate your boys' bedroom in these colours.

  • Shades of blue have a calming and harmonious effect and are often associated with the sky or the sea. The colour blue is therefore ideal as a furniture or wall colour. Alternatively, you can also use blue wall tattoos to fill empty spaces. You can find out more about wall tattoos at the end of this article.
  • The colour green stands for happiness and contentment, has a relaxing and balancing effect on the psyche and can help to encourage your little one's imagination and creativity. Tip: Combine shades of green with lighter colours such as white, grey or beige to create a harmonious picture.

But it can also be more than just blue or green. Neutral colours such as grey, taupe, mint and mustard, or bright colours such as red, yellow or purple look great in your boys' room!

Furnishing the room: Furniture in the children's room for boys

Now let's move on to furnishing the children's room. The right furniture is essential for a cosy atmosphere and the right choice is therefore the most important step in designing the room. Your boys should feel comfortable in their room and be able to let off steam, try things out and develop without any worries.

The right choice of furniture depends on various factors, such as the age of your boys, their interests, the space available and, of course, your budget. But there are also other important aspects to consider when furnishing.

Safety in the boys' room

It is very important to ensure the necessary safety so that your children can let off steam freely in their room. There are several aspects to consider:

  • Boys have a lot of energy and like to let off steam while playing and doing gymnastics in the children's room. To prevent your little rascals from injuring themselves, it is important that you choose furniture and equipment that is safe and stable and has as few sharp edges as possible. This way you can avoid unnecessary tears.
  • As children, especially boys, are very curious and always want to try out everything, it is all the more important to fit all sockets in the children's room or playroom with a socket protector so that your explorers do not come into contact with electricity.
  • If your children are still very young, it is advisable to secure the windows in the children's room so that they don't try to climb up them or open them
  • Unfortunately, there are always materials in children's toys or furniture that can be harmful to children's health. Therefore, inform yourself in advance about possible harmful substances. Our adhesive foils are all CE-tested in accordance with EU standards and are child-safe.

A children's room for boys that grows with them

Even the youngest children grow up quickly, which is why growing furniture in the children's room has so many advantages. Furniture that grows with the child can adapt to changing needs and body sizes, which can save a lot of stress in the long run. It's also easy on your wallet. Having to keep buying new furniture and furnishings can be quite expensive in the long run.

You can find even more benefits and everything you need to know about furniture that grows with your child in this blog article:

The right bed for your boys

During the growth phase, healthy sleep is essential for your boys so that they can recover from their exciting everyday life and develop optimally. That's why the right choice of bed is so important. A bed also takes up a lot of space in the nursery, which is why the bed should be both compact and appealing to your boys.

The IKEA KURA children's bed can be set up both as a floor bed and as a bunk bed, which means that it can be used for both toddlers and primary school children. The high bed version is particularly space-efficient, as the space under the bed is perfect for use as a play area or reading corner. With our matching cotton bed curtains, the KURA children's loft bed can also be easily transformed into an adventure cave.

With our large selection of customised Limmaland adhesive foils, you can also transform the simple IKEA KURA children's bed into a real children's dream, giving the whole children's room a new look. Possible motifs for your boys' bunk bed include dinosaurs, outer space or FEUERWEHR.

Create storage options for your boys

When boys start playing, the children's room is rarely spared. You're probably familiar with the situation: you enter your little rascals' room and wonder how you can get to the window without stepping on Lego bricks, blocks and figures lying around. The boys don't seem to be impressed by the constant mess.
To help your kids learn organisation and structure, it can be helpful to integrate suitable storage options into the design of the children's room.
Many parents use the practical and inexpensive TROFAST shelf from IKEA for this purpose. The shelf has several large sorting bins that provide enough storage space for most of your boys' toys.
With our matching Limmaland adhesive foils, you can transform the simple design of the IKEA TROFAST shelf into a real eye-catcher and the top panel into an enchanting play world. Our design decal for the TROFAST are also laminated for protection, so your little rascals can let off steam without you having to worry about scratches.
Popular adhesive film patterns for boys include play street, farm, jungle and WELTRAUM

Wall tattoos for boys

The children's room is the space in which the little ones can develop, learn, play and relax. Barren and cold walls are out of place here. Small splashes of colour, wall tattoos and decorative elements on the walls create a feel-good atmosphere and can encourage and support your boys in their creativity.
When you think of wall design, the first thing that comes to mind is painting. It's easier than wallpapering but still not exactly quick. The children's room has to be prepared, the furniture protected from the paint and then you also have to wait for the paint to dry.
It's easier and quicker to add colour to the walls with wall stickers. Wall decal adds subtle, stylish splashes of colour or cute motifs to the wall without looking overloaded. And if your boys no longer like the wall design or the children's room becomes a teenager's room, you can simply remove them again. Wall tattoos are also great for combining with coloured surfaces.

Boys need space to play

In addition to all the essential elements that a children's room needs, such as a desk, chairs and bed, one thing should not be neglected: Enough space to let off steam.

Empty space in the children's room is extremely important for children as they need room to play, exercise and be creative.
Free space is particularly important for boys so that they don't bump into furniture or trip over children's room decorations and injure themselves in the process. Free space can also stimulate your kids' creativity and support their independence if they can move and organise themselves freely in their children's room.

From an organisational point of view, it also makes sense to keep some space free for new furniture or furnishings for the children's room, which will become necessary as they get older (e.g. guitar stands, bookshelves, etc.).
