Creating a space for a boy where he has the privacy to dream, complete homework and entertain friends is an important part of childhood. A football-themed bedroom can help foster such an environment, encourage a lifelong love of the game or of a particular team in the heart of a young man.

Shrine to a Team

A simple way to incorporate a football theme into the decor scheme of a boy's room is to make it into a miniature clubhouse for a particular football team. This is as simple as adorning the walls, floors and linens with team colours and accenting with team logos. You can include curtains, rugs or bedspreads that have the logo of the boy's beloved team printed on them. If possible, add some memorabilia to the room, such as framed photographs of historic moments for the team such as a Superbowl or big game won. If the boy has a favourite player, send away for an autographed photograph of that athlete in action.

Mini-Football Stadium

Transforming a boy's room into a miniature football stadium is one way to get him excited about going to bed. A ceiling-to-floor mural of the bleachers of your hometown or favourite football stadium can adorn the walls. Recreate the grass of a football field with a plush, bright green carpet complete with the yard line markings. The head board of the child's bed can resemble one of the goalposts, with the other goalpost painted on the opposite wall. Instead of a nightstand next to the bed, consider having a miniature locker instead, so that it looks like it came straight from the team's changing room. Include a painted scoreboard or smaller replica scoreboard on one of the prominent walls.

Larger than Life Football

This style of decor takes the football theme and makes it larger than life creating a realm of fantasy and possibility in your child's room. A headboard in the shape of an oversized football will dominate the room, establishing that is the place for the cherished sport. Oversized chairs in the shape of footballs and football helmets offer ideal places to sit for doing homework or relaxing. Extra-large depictions of favourite football stars in action cam adorn the walls, depicting momentous plays in famous games, giving the room an added sense of energy.
