Decorating Kids’ Rooms: Sporty Styles and Design of American Football

Football, or more specifically named as American football, is a very popular sport in, as the name suggests, the United States of America. It is a game where two teams are pitted against each other in an effort to take the ball to the other side of the opposing team’s field. It is a sport that is enjoyed by almost every sport-loving American in the whole country, and is second only to basketball and baseball.

You can bring the same action and excitement of American football right into your kid’s room, by creating a room design with football as you main theme. To start off, the floors of the room could represent the field itself. Football field themed carpets are already common these days, and you can easily order one at your local hardware shop. It’s fairly easy to put because you apply them just like any other carpet for home use. If you want to go simpler, you can just put a plain green colored carpet that can represent grass in a football field, although a portion of the football motif might be lost.

The wall’s design can represent any article that can be related to football. Motifs of simple design like footballs randomly plastered throughout the entire wallpaper are usually more recommended than complex ones. Remember, this is a child’s room, and too much complexity can just confuse and make a kid uncomfortable. Alternatively, you can put other kinds of designs in the wallpaper, like for example designs of your kid’s favorite football team.

Designs and motifs for beds can even be more exciting and fun. Pillows can represent large footballs or can be fitted with covers printed with designs of you kid’s favorite football team. The bed itself can take designs from team jerseys, or could take form of a small sized football field. Blankets with articles related to football like football helmets and footballs as designs can fit perfectly into a football themed room.

These are merely suggestions of how you can make your kids enjoy the sport even at their own room. Of course, you still have to enjoy this wonderful sport outdoors, but by bringing the spirit of American football in your kid’s room, your child would always remember the popular sport that all fathers especially in America, yearn to teach their children and enjoy the sport with.
