Sports

Everybody has a hero, and the people you admire affect you in many different ways. For some, a passion for sports runs in the family. Rooting for a favorite team is something both you and your parents might have in common. Whether you love watching a big game with friends or prefer to get in on the action by joining a sports team, one thing is certain: sports are a large part of who you are. Express that side of your life by turning your bedroom into a sports-inspired space. What kind of furniture and decor works? Check out our sports room guide at PBteen for awesome ideas.


Your bed is one of the focal points of your bedroom, and it’s usually what you see first as you walk inside. Use sports-themed bedding to make it clear what you love. You can go wide with a sheet set related to a specific sport like baseball, football, basketball or hockey, or focus on your preferred team instead with their logo emblazoned on your pillows or duvet cover.


Decorative pillows also have artistic sports motifs for an extra pop of emotion. Take things a step further with accessories styled after your favorite sport. Why use a regular table lamp, for example, when you can add one featuring a baseball glove or football in the base? Shelves with elements of sports equipment are another way to bring the emotion of the field into your room. Instead of regular brackets holding up a wall shelf, choose a design that has half a football or basketball supporting your books.


Generally speaking, dark wood is a natural match for sports rooms. There are many shades to choose from, like espresso, chestnut and even browns with a hint of orange. If you’re into baseball, lighter tones like honey or reclaimed wood match the feel of a brand new bat. Create a harmonious theme by following the same or similar shades among your bed, dresser, bedside tables and shelves. With a desk, you can pick out any tone you like.


What if you play more than one sport? Do you have to focus on just one when decorating? No way! You bedroom should represent you completely. If you’re passionate about basketball, lacrosse and hockey, let everyone know about it. Include elements of them all, from hockey or lacrosse equipment to a duvet cover featuring your favorite basketball teams. And, it’s OK to show off a bit in your bedroom. Displaying your sports trophies gives you confidence and helps you perform even better. Plus, when you work hard, it’s natural to feel proud of your accomplishments. Create your own trophy case with a cool bookcase. Wood or metal styles are a great fit for the room. You can also use a couple of shelves above your bed to save floor space.


What can you keep on your trophy wall? Anything that inspires you! Your medals or trophies fit nicely on the top shelf. Include pictures of your team or your friends too, and if a certain athlete pushes you to greatness, there’s room for their photo or collectible cards. This is also an ideal spot for storing any autographed sports memorabilia, like a signed baseball or a special football.


Don’t forget to decorate your walls with sports equipment. A framed jersey looks amazing, as do posters of your favorite stars. A mural expresses your love for the sport as a whole. Sports colors are often bold and dark, like navy, gray, red, orange and other tones. You can even decide to go with team colors. Use decorative pillows for accents, like a bright green pillow on a navy bed. Choose a neutral rug, and white or light wall colors to balance things out.
