Little boys can be picky about their bedroom, but we have some fun ideas that are bound to make them giggle.

Little Boys Bedroom Ideas


We rounded up 30 of our favorite boys’ bedroom ideas that will make your son never want to leave his room! None of these ideas require any interior design specialty! So make a Pinterest board and get pinning!

When it comes to designing your kid’s room, we highly recommend including them in the design process, especially since they’ll be the ones spending the most time in the room.

Let them choose their colors, prints, themes, etc. Take them along while you go shopping for some quality time. Knowing kids, this will probably be just as exciting for them as for you.

It’s a wonderful way for them to fuel their creative minds and turn their imaginative worlds into reality. Plus, it also guarantees that they won’t hate the end result.

From sports-themed to outer space-inspired pieces to DIY decor items, we have the perfect bedroom for your little guy!

Many of the ones we chose can be used (and still loved) for years, all the way from elementary to high school! And these little boys’ bedroom ideas can also be incorporated into bedroom ideas for little girls. Check out our ideas below.
