One of the most exciting things about being pregnant is buying all the new baby items. I remember going out and getting little clothes, hats, booties and bibs to prepare for the arrival of each of my boys. In fact, I learned preparing for a baby by cleaning and decorating the nursery is biological. Pregnant women have a “nesting” instinct which guides us to prepare and get everything ready for baby’s arrival. With these thoughts in mind, I thought to offer up the following nursery decorating ideas for boys. I hope you can use these ideas to get your little guy’s room in tip top shape before his arrival.
One of the cutest nursery decorating ideas for boys is a jungle theme. There are tons of items you can buy to decorate a boy’s nursery with a jungle theme. Plush jungle animals and baby toys are sold in almost every baby store. Plus, you can easily find bedding and decor items for this theme. A spin on this theme would be safari animals or barnyard animals. What you choose depends on whether you want to go with a monkey and parrot theme or lion and tiger theme.
Another adorable nursery decorating idea for boys is a transportation theme. Think cars, trucks, fire engines, boats, planes, bulldozers, school buses and even bicycles. Little boys love things that go, so this is a perfect theme if you are looking for something that can transition to a toddler room. Plus, the bright primary colors that you can decorate with when you choose this theme will be so visually stimulating for your baby. You can even hang traffic signs about the room for a decorative touch. There is an adorable road map rug you can buy that looks great plus it’s functional when your son starts to play with cars.
When it comes to nursery decorating ideas for boys, sports theme are the most popular. Like the transportation theme, the sports theme can grow with your baby. Some people choose a general sports theme using a combination of different sports like basketball, football, soccer and baseball. Others go more direct and choose one single sport that they love and want to share with their child like the NASCAR theme baby bedding or surfing theme baby bedding. There are even cartoon character sports themes that you can decorate a boy’s nursery with like sports theme baby Snoopy and vintage Mickey Mouse sports theme.
I hope these ideas can help get you started on a nursery theme for your baby boy. You can also browse our diaper cakes for boys section on our main website for more ideas.
