Racing-themed bedrooms are popular for children and teens who love events like NASCAR or fast cars. A room can be designed that encompasses this theme and many products are available that can add to the design. Start by choosing what kind of racing you want to use for your decor and then gather your ideas.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Browse online and in stores and peruse catalogues and magazines for items that are available in your theme. Cut them out or print them and place them in a scrapbook or on a cork board. This will help you create your colour palette and you can determine which kinds of items you can incorporate into the room. Consider examples of beds, wallpaper, furniture, pillows and fabrics. Make sure you note where you saw the items in case you decide to purchase them later.

  2. 2

    Look at your collection of ideas and choose the colour palette that you want to use. Reds, blues and black and white are common in race car-themed rooms.

  3. 3

    Decide which accessories you want to incorporate. Bedding is available with many types of racing car designs or choose solid blocks of colour to match your palette. Choose knobs for dressers that are shaped like cars or racing flags and rugs that have a racing theme.

  4. 4

    Choose the wall treatment. Use racing-themed wallpaper or wallpaper borders. Another option is to paint the walls with racing stripes or checkered flags or apply decals or murals. Consider painting a racetrack on the ceiling or across one wall.

  5. 5

    Pull the room together by using bold accent colours. Choose a lamp that has a black-and-white checkered lamp shade or curtains that are bright red like flags.
