Designing a Bug-Themed Bedroom for Kids

If you are looking for a colorful, fun, and cute theme for your kid’s bedroom, a bug-themed bedroom might just be the thing for you. To start your room getting the “buggy” atmosphere, paint the ceiling and maybe even the higher parts of the wall a light blue to make it seem like the sky. You can incorporate clouds, birds, and even the occasional commercial airliner if so you wish. The lower part of the wall may be painted lush green to provide a grassy effect. The floors would best be dark colored wood or covered with a dark colored carpet; this would make for the soil of our bug theme.

You can purchase wall stickers of different bugs and critters that you can scatter all over the wall against the green backdrop. You can also overlap flowers and leaves to make it a little more lively and colorful. If you have bug posters, you can also place them in large spaces of the walls that will be hard to cover with little bug pictures. It would also be a good idea to hang some pictures of your outdoor activities as a family or maybe your kid’s pictures at camp on a special section of the room. For window treatments, you can use mosquito netting or butterfly netting. These come in a variety of colors so you can color coordinate them with the entire room. For corner pieces, you can get a toy or big stuffed tree that can stand on its own. You can a put long, soft, curly snake on this. You can also put other fun characters like happy lizards, a trail of ants, and even cute little baby birds on a nest.

A cute idea for accessories is to hang some from the ceiling. Toy replicas of butterflies, dragonflies, and other flying insects would be very interesting accents of the room if you hang them on different corners. To contrast this, you can put stuffed toys in the shapes of frogs, snakes, and worms on the floor. For a whimsical bug lighting effect, you can use table lamps with bug themed bases and shades. There are some that have special features like glow in the dark insects and insect sound alarms.

To coordinate all of the fabric of the room, get bedding that has the most number of different insects that you can find. With this main ingredient having all of the different insects, you can then choose the smaller items with specific insect themes. You can have bug pillows, a butterfly headboard, worm and snakes carpeting, frog trunks, and lizard shelves. You can also bet hold of bug-themed toys and electronic devices that you can use in the room. You can find items like bug-themed jigsaw puzzles, lifelike insects that make different noises, and 3-D ant farm tunnels.
