I’ve got 12 cool bedroom ideas for boys that will help you transform your little guy’s room into an amazing space! Creating a boy bedroom can be overwhelming, but I’ve got several ideas for the perfect color scheme and budget-friendly design ideas.
Banning them to their room will never be a punishment, you’ll have to make them mop floors or clean the bathroom because hanging out in their cool bedroom will be way too enjoyable!
Cool Bedroom Ideas for Boys
Last April I tackled my son’s bedroom which had been in limbo for a couple of years. I started updating his bedroom, then lost steam…. it happens. Coming up with cool bedroom ideas for boys is hard!
Sports Themed Boys Bedroom
When I started with the Lowe’s Creative Team, this was my first project! I had a $300 budget and my best designer friend ready to work. Aaron Christensen and I go way back, so it was so enjoyable to help him work his magic! He created custom side tables, a desk, and a headboard all from doors found at Lowes. My son LOVES his room to this day. You can see the full post, or just skip to the details. I get asked ALL the time where I got his bedding. Sadly it’s no longer available from Target, but if you search my affiliate link for Striped Boy Bedding on Amazon, you’ll find a lot of choose from.
Genius Boy Science Bedroom
Speaking of Aaron, he’s a creative genius. It’s no wonder he designed the Genius Boy Bedroom. I’m sure you’ve walked past Aaron’s work in Restoration Hardware, Target, Pottery Barn Kids….etc…….. he really is that good! He has several ideas on his site to help you update your child’s bedroom. I’m so happy he’s my friend! (pssst…….we used to teach hi-low aerobics together…..snicker)
Explorer’s Boy Bedroom
What boy isn’t going to be excited to sleep in a converted jeep? WOW! Oh, the dreams he would have about exploring the world! I LOVE her wall/ light sconce. This room was designed by the talented Ursula from Room to Bloom. Another unique idea for the younger crowd is a Toddler Floor Bed.
Travel Boys Bedroom Idea
Sometimes all you need is a statement piece like this dresser to pull the room together! Tie in the area rug and pillows and you’ve got yourself a simple but dynamic boys bedroom! Amanda Carol at HOME did an amazing job!
Flying Planes Boy Bedroom
Little boys love planes! This vintage-inspired room is perfect! From the luggage tag lampshade to the pallet headboard…to the electrical tape trail…oh, but that map wreath. This is one of the best cool bedroom ideas I’ve seen!
Red & Gray Boys Bedroom
Great colors! Balancing Home created a lot of usable space in her son’s room! A great wall for a design punch and that built in dresser is amazing!
Teen Boys Bedroom
This is exactly where I was! Transitioning from little boy to big boy bedrooms is challenging. I’m sure her teen son is in LOVE with his new space! It All Started with Paint pulled it all together!
Rustic Boy Bedroom
This rustic bedroom was found in a boutique by Hammers and High Heels. I would have taken photos too!
Shared Boy’s Bedroom Ideas
Beth from Home Stories from A to Z created an amazing space for her little guys. She blends all things boy with a great sense of design!
Big Boy Bedroom
Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick pulled together a great space for her son. Simple colors, simple design make a fantastic and comfortable bedroom!
Boys Bedroom Re-do
Polka Dot Chair decided on a chalkboard alphabet statement wall to pull together her son’s bedroom! I love it! And I bet he does too.
Airplane Boy Bedroom
Under the Sycamore designed a room to match her boys’ energy! Lots of colors, lots of action……so many details!

I love the sports room. Is there a tutorial for the hexagon shelves. Such a great idea!
Not yet. Aaron is working on an ebook.

Love these. Our grandson lives with us now and really needed a space to call his own. Last summer I painted his room using the idea in It All Started With Paint. It looks amazing and he loves it!

Just got inspired to get to work finishing my own sons bedroom. Got some great ideas, enjoyed seeing some great ideas!
Linda @ it all started with paint says
Kim – I love the space you created for your son! And I remember that we both were working on updating our transitioning son’s rooms at the same time last year. Thanks so much for including my very own son’s room in your round up!
You’re welcome! I love that room you did!
Thank you sooooo incredibly much for this blog post! Spent all day yesterday shopping around for traditional decor and found nothing I wanted for my kids rooms, this is epically awesome:)

Perfect timing! Just heading out to IKEA in a few minutes! Love that idea with the tin cans hanging from the rod. I’m going to pick up a rod & some hooks, so we can make one for over Delaney’s art desk. Also looking for some slim espresso colored shelves to display/store some of Jake’s cars on, down low where he can reach them. That pallet headboard got me thinking too…wonder where I could find one for Jake’s room…. Thank you for the inspiration!
