Kids’ Dream Rooms: Awesome Kid Room Theme Ideas
To the Batmobile!
A Batman room would make your little Batman fan, boy or girl, super excited to jump into bed every night, especially when that bed is their very own batmobile! For some kids, bedtime can turn into a negotiation, so what would be cooler for a kid to rest their head in?
Take your kid on a vacation to planet Krypton with a Superman room. Add a life size superman in the corner and a telephone booth to transform from your everyday self into your super self. There is no doubt that many adults would love to come home to this room too!
This Captain America room is fit for an awesome kid, but it could very easily grow with them into their teen years. The American color palette really lends itself to a more mature look as well. And hey, let’s be honest, adults and teenagers love superheroes just as much as kids do!
Storm the Castle
This castle room would be great for your little princess or your little knight in shining armor. You could, of course, personalize the room with different color palettes to make it more feminine or masculine or leave it gender neutral. Any child would be awestruck to explore a room such as this!
This room’s focus is all about the ceiling; install a false ceiling with tiny holes punctured through, so that you can fit it with fiber optics. This ceiling makes you feel like you are out in nature staring up at the beautiful night sky. This is fantastic for the camping enthusiast or anyone who loves to gaze at stars. Amazing!
For a circus theme, you can paint the ceiling with red and white stripes as though you are gazing at a circus tent. From there you can decorate with stuffed lions, pennants, fake popcorn, and framed photos of Ferris wheels. Don’t be afraid to add your own personalize touch to the room!
Save the Princess!
This is maybe one of the coolest rooms ever! You can go with a recent incarnation of Mario or do a throwback pixelated version from the ’80s and ’90s. Include goombas, green pipes, other characters like Peach, Bowser, or Yoshi, or even a castle. There is something for everybody when it comes to Mario! Power up!
Be Like Steve
Minecraft is undoubtedly one of the most popular games out there right now. And once again it appeals to gamers of all ages. You would definitely make your kid’s life if you decorated their room in the game’s décor. Minecraft sells a lot of products to decorate with or you could also make your own!
Try to use as many colors as you can to make an awesome kid-friendly robot room. Use framed photographs of various robot-esque things to make a gallery wall. You could even purchase your own life-sized robot or you could make your own and get creative with some boxes and paint!
The Dark Side
Star Wars was at its peak forty years ago and another peak has returned with the current sequels being released. There are many options to go with for Stars Wars, so it would probably be best to pick one character (or side) and go with it. For example, if your kid loves Darth Vader, include a lot of black and you could even paint a death star on one wall!
Under the Sea
Try designing a one of a kind style room that your child will always remember by taking a journey under the sea. Painting the room ocean blue with a variety of sea creatures painted on the walls will really make it feel like you live within the beautiful ocean water.
While a beach room might seem like it’s very close to an underwater room, this one takes a view from the seaside rather than under it. Your child will feel like a surfer kicking out on the beach when you use the sea glass green and beige sand colors. You can also include surfboards, palm trees, or any other hula oriented items to really tie the theme together.
A science theme room can take countless different routes from Einstein, to the periodic table, to atoms, protons, and neutrons. Try making some framed pictures like those above to create your own gallery wall. You could also include a telescope and microscope to give your child an awesome learning experience.
Give your child a room with beautiful rustic features. Use unfinished wood, a neutral color palette and you can even bring in some vintage items like an old worn-out baseball glove. In this room the word “explore” is hung on the wall, the letters each have a map design. This is also a room that could easily grow with your child.
A woodland kid’s room theme is super popular at the moment. Use real wood to add amazing texture to the room. You can also include stuffed animals of various woodland characters like foxes or raccoons. Include a fake campfire, fake trees, and a lantern to really feel like you’re frolicking through the woods.
A butterfly room is a theme fit for a queen or king. Try placing wall decals or magnet butterflies throughout your child’s room, it will make it feel like they stepped into their own magical paradise. Using rich shades of purple enhances the regal-ness of the theme.
Fit For A Princess
A room fit for a princess, with an actual wrought-iron carriage! What could be better for a little girl? Decorating in pinks and blues makes the room reminiscent of Cinderella, with gauzy white canopies and white pillows makes the room have a whimsical quality. Every little girl would love to be a princess of her own royal room.
Never Grow Up!
Try a magical Peter Pan theme by placing a wall sticker of Peter Pan’s shadow over a lamp. There are many things to include from Peter Pan’s world including pirates, fairies, and even a crocodile. Every kid will love to get lost in the magical world of Peter Pan and to be reminded to never grow up!
Barbie Doll Fun

U.S.A.! U.S.A.! Try creating an American pride room for your child. This is another style of room that could definitely mature with your child. It can be as simple as sticking to the color palette of red, white, and blue and of course hanging up the flag of the United States of America.
Pay homage to the longest standing alliance the USA has, by creating a United States/United Kingdom room! This is one of the most interesting rooms on the list. You can really play it up by including photos or canvases of landmarks from both countries like Big Ben and the Statue of Liberty, for example.
Out of This World
A space room is another room with many options and is absolutely beautiful to behold. You can focus on the planets or take a close up look of the stars. It would also be fun to actually set up a telescope in your child’s room so they can explore space in their very own way!
For the boy who loves America’s favorite past time, why not try creating a baseball room for your child? Purchasing a bed made out of actual baseball bats, a baseball mitt chair, and a baseball rug complete the look. Just make sure you don’t let them play baseball in the house!
Take It To The Hoop!
Another awesome sports room is a basketball room. You could actually lay down a wood floor on the ground and paint on basketball court lines, complete with hoop, for their very own basketball court. Of course, you should probably only use balls that won’t break anything.
Hut, Hut, Hike!

Toy Story Dream

Classic Mickey Mouse
Mickey Mouse is the quintessential Disney character; bring both Mickey and Minnie to life with this adorable theme idea. This room would be perfect for boy/girl twins or brother and sister. Use the primary color palate or any bright colors would do, your children are sure to love to escape into the world of Disney!
Try this educational room theme by centering the room around the alphabet. You can place the alphabet around the border of the wall and even purchase an alphabet carpet. You could also place a sticker with the alphabet song on the wall. This is a great idea for a toddler room and maybe you’ll even have your child reading early!
Try giving your daughter a Tinkerbell or fairy room. Creating a magical world of her very own is sure to enchant her forever; she will never forget such an amazing room. Use a purple and green color palette to really bring out the Tinkerbell factor. This room actually built the bed into the wall, what an awesome idea!

The centerpiece of the room could be this map which showcases animals around the world and which countries they derive from. Educational and beautiful!
What child doesn’t LOVE Legos? While they may be the bane of every parents existence (especially when stepping on them in the middle of the night) every kid definitely can’t get enough creative Lego play. You could purchase this bed made out of giant Legos, where pieces can actually be moved. Don’t forget to use the primary color palette, just like Lego does.
Extreme Sport Enthusiast
For your future extreme sports player, try creating a skateboarding room for your child. Of course, skateboards hanging on the wall is a must.
