A boy's room can quickly become a Bermuda Triangle of chaos, seeming somewhat like a jungle and somewhat like a dungeon. Part of the task of decorating a boy's room is finding decorating elements that can grow and adapt with the boy as he matures. Design ideas that will encourage neatness and organisation can help you tame the chaos of any boy's room.

Modern Sports Fan

Many boys have an appreciation for sports that continues into adulthood. Furthermore, liking and supporting sports teams is a major part of peer group bonding and can help social interaction become smoother. Enhance your boy's appreciation for athletics by decorating his walls in a sports theme. Purchase flat, metal shapes of sports equipment in a contemporary design and hang them around his room. Alternatively, create black-and-white depictions of team logos in a minimalist, sleek, modern style. The boy should have no problem with having this decor at age 8 or at age 18.

Modern Lodge

Decorating a boy's room in rustic decor transforms it from a place to sleep into a special retreat where he can escape from the rest of the house. By decorating a boy's room as a modern lodge which has certain rustic accents but is overwhelmingly contemporary, you'll have a look that will be popular with him for years. Instead of giving his room a plaid comforter and curtains, pick a solid colour that just has a slight plaid trim. Throw a faux bearskin rug on his hardwood floor and create a faux fireplace with tealight logs. Instead of a traditional wooden rocking chair, pick a modern one that has black leather trim.

Cupboards and Cabinets

Having lots of adequate storage is a good idea for a boy of any age. Install a row of cupboards and cabinets that are easy to reach and which have both shelves, hooks and closet poles on the inside to give him a choice of storage options. Select modern materials, such as tinted glass, chrome or a light wood, for the fronts of the cabinets and cupboards to give them a modern feel. When shut, the cupboards and cabinets will give the room a smooth, finished quality, not to mention a certain degree of privacy that boys will most likely crave later on.
