Hello to those of you who have stopped by. Let me present to you my latest creation…A Boy’s Room with options that can sleep 1 to 6. There is a Checklist with all the links to easily purchase everything that you need to create this look in your home.
I’ve also totaled up the costs for several variations of the bedroom so you’ll see the approximate costs to sleep 1, 2 , 3 up to 6.
Let’s get to it. I’m going to start with the artwork, and let me just say that there was a ton of artwork to choose from, and I ended up choosing two affordable, yet adorable pieces that were the right size for affordable framing. I found the two of these at Art.com.
I also wanted to show you a couple other art pieces that would be perfect if you have 2 or 3 boys. These are the more expensive pieces, so whatever works for you. I found all of these at Fine Arts America. Seriously, how adorable are these?
On to the wall tapestry. It is super affordable and comes in multiple sizes. I chose the biggest one, which is 5’11 x 7’7″. It’s fabric and it is sagging in the middle. I am thinking that you can use really strong industrial type double sided tape along the edges to secure it to the wall it won’t sag. You could also build a frame out of 1x2s if you are handy. Oh! I wanted to also mention that there are a ton of design options at this website, so if you’re not crazy about this version, I’m sure that you could find one that you love.
I would like to mention that if you have younger boys, the desk is optional, I know it’s not suited for a child under eight-ish. It’s not my style to design a room with primary colors and cartoons. I like to build rooms that can easily transition into teen years and adulthood with pieces that are timeless and classic. But, back to the desk. I had this desk several years ago. It’s really inexpensive – laminate over pressed board, but it works. The drawer is shallow, it won’t hold much, but it’s an affordable desk.
The desk chair is a mid century modern style. I chose it because it’s both masculine and trendy.
I have to admit something about the bedding. I don’t like the color, but I searched and searched for something a little brighter of a green or blue to match the colors in the wall tapestry, and I couldn’t find it. This sage green was the best that I could do. Maybe you could find a brighter color at a local retailer.
For the curtains I chose colors that were pulled from the wall tapestry.
Here are the bed variations. The first one comes in twin and full size, and it has storage underneath, plus a built in headboard. The twin is currently priced at $226, and the full is $250. That includes the $30 delivery charge.
The next options are bunk beds. They come in twin size and full size if your boys are older. The twin set is $179, and the full set is $420.
Here is the triple bunk bed and it can be separated into 3 beds, which is nice. It’s $400.
I chose the nightstands based on their price and because they have plenty of storage.
The dresser is also affordable and has a ton of storage.
The poufs are just fun additional seating.
The lamp is just a simple masculine style that’s perfect for a boys room.
The area rug is optional. If you have hard surface flooring, it’s a nice way to soften the space. I chose a dark color to hide stains.
This should give you everything you need to decorate a boy’s room. As always, the prices will change. A lot of the items were on sale when I wrote this post,and I’ve found that they go up and down in price. I leave the prices as they are so you’ll know whether you should wait for a sale to come back, or if you should buy it now because it’s on sale. When I choose pieces, I always choose the highest rated with the best price, so if you see it for less than I’ve listed it for, it’s usually a good deal. There may be some taxes and shipping charges that I didn’t see, and I’ve rounded up on all of the total cost estimates for each option just to be safe.
I will check the links to make sure that they haven’t gone bad and update them if they have, but if you catch one before I do, please gently comment and I will fix it. Until next time.
