Space Theme Ideas for a Boy's Room

Create a space-themed bedroom for your little boy who loves the outer space. From hanging planets to glow-in-the-dark stars, use your imagination to make the ideal outer space bedroom for your son. Make a quick trip to your local craft and retail store to ensure you have all you need to complete a space-themed room his friends will envy.


Start by painting one of the walls dark blue. Do not paint all the walls dark blue as this will make the room too dark and look small. Use a star-shaped stencil to paint stars on the dark wall using glow-in-the-dark paint from your local hardware store. You can also use plastic glow-in-the-dark stars that stick to the wall instead of painting. Get an overhead projector, and blow up a couple of planets on the walls. Trace the planets with a pencil, and paint each one. If budget allows, hire a local artist to come in and paint a space mural on one of the bedroom walls.


Several retail and online stores offer bedding that has stars, planets and rockets on it. Get plush star-shaped throw pillows for the bed. Rocket ship bunk beds are also available at many furniture stores. If you cannot find the bedding you want, make your own bedding using space-themed iron-on transfers and a basic bedding set.

Rocket Ship

Make a rocket ship for the space-themed room using a round piece of cardboard (the type used to pour concrete pillars). Paint the tube white and paint "USA" down the side of the tube. Take a metal piece of tubing, and roll it up to make it come to a point to use as the front of the rocket. Use small round cardboard pieces painted red on the end of the rocket if you prefer. Set the rocket in the corner of the room for decoration.


Other accessories to include in a space-themed bedroom are toy astronauts, framed space memorabilia, inflatable planets and a telescope. Hang the toy astronauts and inflatable planets from the ceiling. Hang space memorabilia and space wall art on the walls. Hot glue small, plastic toy rockets to curtain rods, lamps, the dresser and headboard for added decoration. Any toy or plush rocket ships, stars, planets or space-themed items are good choices to put around the bedroom.
