Redecorating Your Kid’s Bedroom With Surfer Decor

By Rebecca McKeich

Kids’ rooms are all about themes today, everything from a superhero to the latest popular cartoon character. But you don’t have to stop there, think about your son or daughter’s favorite hobby or sport and make that work for you when decorating their room. If you have a child that loves surfing or is a little beach bunny, surfboard decorations can make for a very cool theme for them.

You will of course need a surfboard or two; you can’t have a surfing theme without one. You can find used ones that are cheap at local surf shops or flea markets. Make a shelf on the wall with one with a few brackets or turn an old desk into something fun by replacing the top with a surfboard. If your child is a surfer, hang their board on the wall for when they are not using it and in the off season it decorates the room.

Think about the walls of the room, if you are good with a paint brush you can create a wave crashing effect. Paint the walls a nice blue and then using a brush and white paint, take big sweeping strokes to create a wave effect, they could even overlap onto the ceiling. If you are not handy with a brush, rag painting is something that can create a similar affect. Offset the wells with light airy white curtains with straight lines, nothing frilly or too fancy.

Beach towels are not only the perfect addition to hang on the wall or drape somewhere, but you can use one to upholster a chair in the room. No beach theme is complete without at least one beach towel in the mix.

For a great old school surf decorating vibe, look for some signs to hang on the walls, maybe even the door. Online or in the local surf shops you’ll be able to find a lot of vintage beach signs if your child prefers those to the newer styles today. If your kid loves posters, a poster or two of a surfing scene or the beach will dress up the walls too.

A few novelty items can also add to the fun and accent the theme. Take a look at some surfboard wall hooks for their coats and bags, surfboard clocks are also very cool for a kid, even surfboard print light switch plates to put up can be found. There are a variety of novelty items that you can allow your child to choose from to add his own touch.

And nothing pulls a room completely together like the right bedding. Today, bedding is all about design and you’ll find a variety of different choices when it comes to surfing and the beach. There will be flashy colorful ocean scenes to subtle and calming beach scenes to choose from.

Kids love summer and summer vacation, and when you think of summer you think of the coastal decor. Even if your kid isn’t a surfer you can still transform their ordinary room into something spectacular with the right pieces of surfboard decor that will make them feel like they are at the beach every day.
