15 Big Boy Room Ideas

15 Big Boy Room Ideas

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not really a “theme” girl. Well, I like simple themes – colors, infusions of a specific animal or hobby, but nothing too matchy matchy.

Now that I have both a little girl and a little boy I spend a lot of time dreaming about their big rooms … for the days when their cribs get packed up. I know that time absolutely flies with these kiddos and before I know it, we’ll be buying moving into toddler beds and then twins, maybe even bunks and planning room makeovers to embrace their personal style (and a little of mine if I get my way). Today, here’s a peek at what I’m envisioning for my little man!

pallet bed

My hubby is pretty handy so I could totally see up putting together a rustic pallet bed like this one from Wicker Paradise

kidkraft boat bed

Ooo, this bed from KidKraft is the beginning of an awesome boy’s room

collage wall room

Love the collage wall and the striped bedding in this room

buildable bed

This room rocks – and as soon as my little man is safe to be in a high bed, this will totally be another build-able option

two boys room

This room makes me want to have two boys for sure


Love the pops of orange – such a great color for busy little guys


See the subtle airplane theme from Under the Sycamore‘s home tour?

bold bed

I love the bold bed color , the graphic bedspread and the dark wall

organized room

So much space to play, better yet … keep it organized

not bunks

A fun alternative to bunk beds

painted dresser

Painted dressers are such a fabulous statement piece


A room that shows off each child’s personality

Love this outdoor inspired bedding


It may be hard to convince them to stay in bed with this awesome set up

  1. I have a friend who re-did her 2 boys rooms using the wooden boat bed from Kid Kraft. It was worthy of a Pinterest pin! She’s a photog too so that helped 😉
