Car themed bedroom, How to create the perfect car themed bedroom

Car themed bedrooms are all the rage. That’s because as a society we have come to realise that allowing our children to express themselves is vitally important, and one of the best ways for them to do this is to theme their bedroom with things they like or – if they are old enough – in a way that they choose.

However you decide to theme your child’s bedroom, you’ll want to make sure it is exciting and long lasting, so that you don’t have to go through the trouble of redecorating again in a short amount of time.

We can help. Here is our guide to creating the perfect themed bedroom for your kiddies.

Bring your child into the creative process – Car themed bedroom

The first thing to do if you can is to ask your child how they would like their room themed. This will get your little one excited about their bedroom decoration and – most importantly – to spend time there.

Your child no doubt has some topics they already enjoy – perhaps it’s cars, or unicorns, or knights and dragons – so you’ll have a good idea of what they already like, and can make some soft suggestions. Make sure you’re steering your child towards choosing something that is not a phase, or else you might find your child quickly uninterested in your carefully planned and selected decorative elements.

Start with the bed

The bed is the focal point of any bedroom, and should be a key part of your child’s new themed bedroom. If you nail this part of your redecoration, the rest will follow.

There are tons of themed beds you can find online. There are beds in all sorts of different shapes, so you’re certain to spot something your child will love if you look hard enough.

If you have a car mad kiddie, why not consider one of our car shaped beds? They come in a variety of colours and shapes, from race cars to police vehicles, and have sound effects and lights to feed your child’s imagination.

When you’re looking for a bed, look for a reputable company with a host of good reviews and a big choice of beds. If you can, buy a bed that will last your child a long time, that’s both high quality and big enough that your child will not outgrow it.

Accessorise with a cool duvet

No bed is complete without a decent duvet, so make sure you invest in a good one. You can either choose a plain colour so as not to distract from the bed, or buy one that matches the theme.

At Car Bed Shop, we sell themed duvets to match our beds. They look fantastic when teamed with any one of our specialist designs.

Look for matching furniture

The next most important part of creating a themed bedroom is the furniture you put around it. It should match whatever the overall theme of your room is. If – like our example – it is cars, you should be buying a dresser, wardrobe and nightstands that match the car theme.

At Car Bed Shop, we sell Champion Racer Gallon Storage Barrels you can use as toy boxes or nightstands. Teamed with our racer themed desk and 3D wardrobe, furniture like this brings your theme to life. Your child will feel as though they are in a real garage.

Don’t forget the simple touches, like shelves. They really finish off the room.

Bring the place to life

Depending on the age of your children, they might need some coaxing into their new room, as it can feel like a completely new environment, so it is a good idea to spend some time with them in there, helping bring their themed room to life.

Playing with your child in their bedroom will help give them the confidence to invent their own games and grow their imagination.

In your race car themed room, you might let your child pretend to be the racing car driver, whilst you announce their position and resulting win. Or perhaps you’ll pretend to be engineers, who are looking to repair a broken vehicle.

Maybe you’re a paint shop, or a car showroom. There are endless games you can play, and if you give your child a little nudge, they’ll learn to do this themselves.
