Attention moms of boys! Give that wired up bundle of testosterone, otherwise known as your son, a place to chill out after a long day at school! Don’t just make his room comfy, make it stylish too and he might actually keep it clean enough to have friends hang out! A mom can dream right?
If you’re not quite sure where to start, I have a suggestion…pick a style. Is your son a more traditional type of guy who wants his room to be super comfy and appealing in a typical way or is he the type of kid who wants to really impress his guests and if so, consider going more modern!
To make this task easier, I’ve selected two of my favorite bedroom furniture sets for boys, one in a classic style and one with modern charm and I’ve paired these sets with accessories you could add to create a great guy space. Check out the picture below and let your imagination run wild with boy bedroom design ideas, then read on for some more info.
If you like what you see continue reading to get the scoop on the furniture and accessories featured above.
Classic Boys Bedroom Furniture Set and Accessories
In the classic style I chose the Antique Black Treasures 3 Piece Bedroom Set – Twin Bed, Trundle and Nightstand by Alligator (1). This set is classic because of the square bed and nightstand design, along with standard head and footboard on the bed. Your son will appreciate the storage space he’ll get in the headboard and nightstand. This furniture set is also great because it’s finished in a rich Black stain that goes beautifully with any wall or bedding color, so your son can decide if he wants to go with blue, green or any other color he can dream up.
I’ve paired the Lite Source Henrick Metal Desk Lamp in Polished Steel (1A) with this boys bedroom furniture set because it has a classic design and would fit perfectly on the nightstand to provide enough light for reading in bed.
As for classic seating, there’s nothing more traditional and fun than a bean bag chair like the Blue Sky Suede Big Bag Bean Bag by Comfort Research. (1B) Their beanbag chairs are made to last and provide optimal comfort to every sitter thanks to the top quality foam filling inside. You might want to even get more than one to give your son’s friends a place to sit!
Modern Boys Bedroom Furniture Set and Accessories
When it comes to modern you don’t get more cool and hip than the Chocolate Back Bay 4 Piece Bedroom Set – Full Headboard, 5 Drawer Chest and Matching Nightstands by SouthShore (2). I’m totally crazy about this boys bedroom furniture set because of the sleek straight line designs and decorative molding on the headboard along with fancy silver handles on the dresser and nightstand. It’s just so modish in a manly way!
What’s not to love about the Lite Source Tiya Table Lamp in Black (2A). Can’t you just picture it sitting on the nightstand? The unique shape of the base makes the lamp totally contemporary and the black is just stunning with the chocolate furniture set.
A room wouldn’t be modern if it didn’t have that one piece that added extra pizzazz and that’s why I included the Ebony on Walnut Perch Leather Lounge by Offi (2B). I’m nuts about the modern shape of this chair and the beautiful mix of black cushions with silver frame. The extra storage space below is just another benefit and can help your son stay a little more organized. Get a few of these contemporary seats and your son will love inviting friends to hang out.
No matter which style you go with, just remember, your goal is to give your son a room that he’s proud of and it’s a win/win for you both! Good luck designing!
