Young men often aspire to careers in sports, and wrestling is a common dream for boys. With the advent of organisations and events like World Wrestling Entertainment, Mixed Martial Arts and Ultimate Fighting Championship, a young man who wants to emulate his heroes may turn to wrestling. Decorating his room in a wrestling theme can encourage his dreams and give him an entertaining and safe retreat.
Paint the young man’s room to duplicate the intensity and feel of a real wrestling ring.
Paint ropes around the room, much like you would install a chair rail. The ropes should be lower on the wall so that he is taller than ropes. If he is shorter than the ropes, he will not necessarily feel like he is fighting in the ring.
Ropes are generally red or blue, and there should be at least three ropes on the walls.
Beyond the ropes, paint silhouettes of fans and observers so that it looks like he has an army of supporters in the crowd. Include painted signs cheering him on or touting nicknames for his wrestling career.
Posters and other similar wall hangings can adorn a boy’s room and turn it into a real wrestling shrine.
WWE and other organizational retailers sell life-size posters and cutouts of wrestlers that can adorn your son’s room and have him standing next to his idols. You can also find posters from specific matches or of specific competitors.
Adorn the walls with recreations of championship belts and wrestling trophies. Create curtains or wall hangings from WWE or MMA sheets and towels, or hang a T-shirt commemorating a wrestling match on the wall.
If you decorate your young man’s room to look like a wrestling ring, chances are he will treat it like a wrestling ring. Prepare the room for this abuse by installing proper flooring and other padding.
Avoid hardwood or linoleum flooring in the room, where he can hurt himself or his friends taking spills and falls. Instead, install soft carpeting that can support the roughhousing that is bound to go on in the room.
Add bean bags or large floor pillows and throw rugs to the room as well, to protect lamps or other furniture, as well as your child, from spills and throws. Preparing for the possibility of rough and tumble play will be much easier than cleaning up or dealing with injuries from it.
