Ideas to create a dog-themed room
If you’re thinking of redoing any part of your house, especially the children’s bedroom, think of a dog-themed room. Children love dogs and vice versa. You can go berserk with dog wallpaper border, posters, dog cartoons/painting, the full works! Take a look at some tips and ideas on how you decorate the room:
- Go with a plan. Ask your child how he or she would like the end result to be. Or at least get their ideas and try to incorporate them as much as possible. You can also go for a digital image or print of your pet dog.
- If you already have a dog, get wall posters or wallpaper borders of the same breed so your child feels it’s really his pet on the pictures. Or if you have enough pictures of your child and his dog together, get wallpaper borders custom-made. Though that may turn out quite expensive!
- I love the idea of paw prints or Dalmatian spots on the wall or a border or paw prints. Or if your dog is tan and white or tan and black, try to make the furniture match with those colors.
- Place accessories like a doggie clock, bedding with paw prints or Dalmatian spots and dog pictures. Use paw prints bedding only if your walls are left plain. Too much of anything will leave the room looking confused and cluttered.
- Go with curtains that match the bedding or just give a border with those prints to plain curtains. Remember, don’t overdo anything.
If you don’t have a dog but still want to go with a doggie theme, you can look for inspiration from movies that have famous dogs like Benji, Lassie and others. But ultimately, go with something that excites your child.
