The Coolest Skateboard Bedroom Theme Ideas for Boys and Girls
We have some very cool skateboard bedroom ideas for boys. Chances are that a teenage boy is not going to be pleased about spending time discussing his room makeover when he'd rather be skateboarding, so on this page you will find some decorating ideas that have proven to be winners with boys, not that girls can’t be into skateboarding.
Girls love skateboarding (I loved skateboarding (still do but don’t have time and am out of practice) but I wouldn't have wanted my room to be decorated in that theme even if my mom would allowed it. With that in mind, we will explore this theme from a boy's point of view.
Can't find a comforter set that you like in a skateboarding theme? No problem! Buy any bedding set for boys that you like and round the theme out with inexpensive, easy to use skateboarding wall decals and stickers.
COOL SKATEBOARD BEDDING for BOYS
You can perhaps extend the life of your comforter set by choosing a bedroom color scheme that you like. finding a bedding set in solid colors and then using the tools of the trade to create your skateboard themed bedroom. When the boy’s preference in sports changes from skating to motocross or other hobbies, simply change out the decorative accessories and you’re good to go.
The sport of skateboarding is more than a pastime. To some it represents a gritty, urban lifestyle that hosts an underlying beauty. Take the time to watch the skateboarders at the skating parks and you will leave with respect for the graceful moves that are taking place. So, how do we decorate a skateboard theme bedroom and recreate that unique atmosphere in a boy’s room? Here are some decorating ideas for skateboard fans.
For boys who truly identify with this lifestyle, nothing but official Tony Hawk skateboard bedding may do but take heart because this brand has its advantages in that the colors of the sheets and comforters are good, the fabrics has images that will inspire skateboard bedroom decorating ideas as well as those dedicated to other extreme sports like motocross and dirt bike racing and you can pick up a set for a very cheap price. For a more expensive price, you can decorate your skateboard bedroom with bedding produced by top designers like Tommy Hilfiger and Pottery Barn Kids that come in a broad range of colors.
SKATEBOARD ART, WALL DECALS and POSTERS
I love decorating the walls of boys’ skateboard bedrooms because they are so full of action! Use an old skateboard to make a skateboard shelf, combine a few lifesize decals of skateboarders, buy a good looking skateboard wall hanger and a framed poster or two and your work is done!
The floors of a skateboard themed bedroom should be kept open and be EXTREMELY durable. Skateboarders tend to be hard on flooring and object to carpet. I know of one mom that rather than spend her time yelling, "NO SKATEBOARDING IN YOUR ROOM" left the concrete slab of the home’s foundation uncovered in her teenage boy’s bedroom. I managed to talk her into buying a skateboard rug to put beside the bed to improve the acoustics and soften the austere look of the room.
A few things that I learned when decorating a skateboard themed bedroom for boys is that they want a space that resembles the street. This boys’ bedroom design is about skateboards, concrete and open spaces. The key is to focus the basics, resist the urge to put fragile skateboard decorations all over the place and your bedroom decorating ideas should make your teenage son very happy.
