Choose a colour scheme for the room. Consider using the colours of your child’s favourite team for the walls and ceiling of the room. Another popular option is to paint the walls in a light shade of blue so they resemble ice.
Decorate the wall with a large personalised hockey scoreboard mural. You can order custom boards that allow you to choose the team's name. Another option is to use a mural of the logo of your child’s favourite hockey team, which are available as decals from numerous retailers.
Replace the faceplates for the light switches with some that have decorative team logos.
Secure secure wooden hockey sticks to the frame of the bed using wood glue. Mount two hockey sticks over the bed with screws. Or hang hockey sticks over the threshold of a door or window. Replace an ordinary curtain rod with a hockey stick.
Dress the bed with hockey-themed bedding that features the NHL team emblems or symbols of her favourite team. Toss a few decorative sports throw pillows on the bed to make the bed cosy.
Place team jerseys in a large shadowbox frame and hang it on the wall. Depending on your child’s preference, he may just want the jersey of his favourite player framed or those of a couple team members.
Hang a pair of used ice skates on the wall. Or use a wall border of ice skates to decorate the room.
Hang a wall clock that features the logo of your child's favourite team, a decorative laundry hamper, and posters of her favourite players. Toss a rug that is shaped like a hockey puck on the floor.
Spray paint a table black and allow it to dry. Attach hockey pucks around the sides of the table using strong glue. Or you could display several hockey pucks in a bowl on a shelf.
