Design a skateboard-themed room to highlight your child's love for skateboarding. These rooms work well for boys and girls of all ages, but the style changes depending on your child's interests. A more animated room may work better for a younger child while a professional, polished skateboard room suits a teen. You can also create a skateboard room that features other types of boards, such as surf boards and snowboards.

Feature posters of modern-day sponsored skateboarders or classic legends such as Tony Hawk. Showcase images of these people skating along boardwalks or ramps. Younger kids may want more animated skateboard posters. Look for Japanese animated skateboard images. Posters displaying a range of different kinds of boards also work for this theme. Ask your child to pick out his favourite posters, rather than choosing for him.
Real Modern Skateboards
Dress up the room with real modern skateboards. Buy used boards in good condition that showcase designs. Remove the wheels and other accessories, and place these in a box for later use. Use a drill to attach brackets and screws to the bottom of the board. Hang these skateboard shelves on the wall, and adorn them with skater decor, pictures and other decorations that your child chooses. You can also glue some of the wheels in random places on the walls as added decor.
Feature one or more skateboard antiques that your child likes. She might want to hang up a vintage skateboard, old posters of 1970s skateboarders or ceramic skateboard statues. Look for skateboard antiques online or at antique shops. If you can't find antiques, see if your child might want to hang up a few black and white skateboard photos from the '70s and '80s. Look for these pictures on stock photo sites.
Younger kids might enjoy having skateboard sheets and bedding in their room. Choose bedding that includes a mix of colourful skateboards or animated figures skateboarding. Solid coloured bedding that matches the colours in the room can also work for older kids. Find matching pillows and curtains to blend everything together in the room.
Include other accessories in the room, such as skateboard lamps, striped skateboard rugs, road signs, books and anything skateboard related. Look for accessories online, or find decor at local skate shops. Your child can always add more decor to her room gradually as she finds it.
