Wonderful Bedroom Ideas for Boys

The most important thing to remember while making the decoration of your kid’s bedroom is to including his/her contribution in the process as much as possible.

If your kids are a little older, then you can quickly have a discussion on their imaginations about their new bedroom. However, things included in the process of bedroom ideas for boys largely depend on your kid’s age.

If he/she is of 3rd age, then they will have some tastes such as which colors is their favorite; some children will specify bedroom theme as well. You can also try out having your kids look at certain photos of bedroom ideas that are available online or show them some styles that attract them right manner.

Try out bright and bold colors or themes

Little boys mostly seem to like bright and bold colors and Disney cartoon characters. There are also themes that boys like such as pirates, construction themes, dinosaurs, trains, cars, western themes and planes.

Go for ‘bed in a bag sets’ in which everything is contained; it is very economical and a great way to try out if your boys are about to have bedroom design changes in their mind. It is good to buy bed and other furniture before painting the bedroom. This will help you add the comforter or quilt, shams, etc into the paint store in order to ensure that you are getting the ideal match on tone or color.

For example, if there is a grey-blue color bedding set, then you may want to tone down the paint color with little shades for the walls. It is good to bring the paint samples before purchasing the paint to see how the original lighting in the room will have impacts over the color.

Bring around 10 paint samples and tape them to the wall. Leave them for a day or two so that you can take a wise decision after seeing its impact over the room. Day and night light can differently affect your color choice. Artwork is another fun thing to integrate in your boys’ bedroom, which are available in wide varieties to choose from.

Put nice photos in the rooms

There are lots of photo resource websites offering attention-getting pictures to put in home interior. You can choose some kids’ friendly photos, save and print them to be placed in simple frames at your little one’ bedroom. Your kids will be happy with such themes as the outcome is incredible. Another fun way you can try out is including variety props such as horse, cowboys, trains, cars, etc in your kids’ bed room.

Choose vector images for cartoon model characters. You can utilize Adobe Photoshop if you are handy with it or can choose similar programs to change colors in the photos, add text or include a collage together using many photos.

Buy frames like Lkea and paint them to match the color in the image or bedding. Explore your imaginations and exploit them to get a unique theme for your boys’ bedroom!!

Yes you can wash a comforter at home! Here are some tips that will help you in washing your comforter easily at home.

Tip#1

Make sure to read the washing instructions on your comforter. Every fabric has a different need and a different wash care. Go through the instructions regarding the detergent, wash, temperature and drying.

Tip#2

Clean the top surface of the comforter with a vacuum cleaner. It will help in removing minute dust particles and will ensure a perfect clean.

Tip#3

Wash the comforter in a mild detergent. Avoid using detergents that have high concentration of bleach as it can harm the texture as well as the color of the fabric.

Tip#4

During a machine wash, run the machine on the mild cycle. Don’t wash any other clothes along with the comforter.

Tip#5

Comforters that require hand wash can be a pain to wash. Finding a big area to wash it comfortably can be a problem. A bathtub would be a good option in this case.

Tip#6

Choose a large capacity dryer to dry off the comforter. Dry it at low heat. Avoid drying it under direct sun, if drying normally. Dry it under shade as this will help in keeping the look of the comforter intact.

Tip#7

After drying make sure to steam iron it in order to ward off the wrinkles. The wrinkles can be an ugly sight if not taken care of.

Tip#8

Fabrics like silk, velvet etc cannot be washed. Make sure to check if they are marked ‘washable’ which is a very unlikely situation. Comforters with such fabrics are to be dry cleaned only.
