Boys will always be boys, and sports will always be their first love. If your son is showing interest at sports in his early age, show your support by helping him design his room. Re-decorating your son’s room is a pleasurable activity that the two of you can do. This is a good avenue for you to bond together and spend quality time.

A sports-themed bedroom can serve as the perfect haven for your son. If your child is keen in one sport, discuss with him the elements that he wants to be placed in his room. Say, he adores a famous basketball team. Get his ideas on how he would like his room to look like after the transformation.

Getting started – After you had discussed with your son, your next step is to visit the mall and pick out items that you can use to decorate his room. You can even ask your son if he wants to accompany you so that he can select some items on his own. Get beddings, pillowcases, and blankets that are sports-themed. There are also some stores that sell pillows that are shaped like basketballs. You could get sports-themed curtains for your child’s room and get rid of the venetian blinds.

If budget is not an issue, you can also purchase a bed that is sports-inspired. There are many pieces of furniture in the malls that will fit the theme that you have in mind. Get posters as well as pictures of famous sports icons that you can post around the room.

Ask your son if he wanted his walls to be re-painted as well. For those who are planning to completely overhaul their son’s room, you can try repainting the walls. A fresh coat of paint will liven up the room’s atmosphere and give it a more “sporty feel”. You can try the colors orange and blue, if your son loves basketball. If your son is a baseball fanatic, you can hire a painter and let him draw the logo of your son’s favorite team in the wall. Wait for the paint to dry before you arrange the pieces of furniture around, then place the posters all around. If you cannot find good posters, try purchasing some wall art paintings that are sports-themed to add up to the whole aesthetic value of the room. You can also try asking your son to draw some pictures and frame them. This will add a more personal touch to his room.

Since your son is a sports enthusiast, then you probably have lots of trophies from the events he had won in. Purchase a glass cabinet and place all the trophies inside as well as the medals he’s acquired.

There are lots of accessories that you can place in the room. For example, if there is still space you can install a mini-basketball court in the far ends of the room. These basketball toy kits are usually available in toy stores and are very easy to assembly. Get an anti-slippery mat also so that you will be able to prevent accidents.

Room decorating is a rewarding project for both the parent and the child. This will help you know more about your son and his interests and in turn, you will be able to show to him that you fully support his interests.
