Every little girl wants to be a princess and what better way to make her feel like one than by creating a princess theme bedroom. Toddlers love to pretend and play make-believe, so incorporate that love in the bedroom design.
A canopy bed with a purely princess look is perfect as the centerpiece for the princess theme room. Invest in a quality made twin size bed that has a canopy to enhance the look of the room.
Painting the walls a solid color, or mixing glitter in with the wall paint for extra sparkle, is an easy way to prepare the walls. If you are looking for something truly unique, consider painting a wall mural on the bedroom walls instead.

At the Track
Take your little boys enthusiasm for racing and bring it to life in a race track theme room. Paint a race track on the wall using black or asphalt grey paint. Use car wall decals to serve as the race cars. Is he into the outdoors? Try a faux fir zebra print rug.
Not only will the decals give the wall a more authentic look, but it will also be fun for your son to move the cars around the track. Add a lush decor beige race car theme kid's 3-piece quilt and curtains to add to the look.
If you cannot find items that match the decor you are trying to create, consider sewing your own curtains or bedding with car theme fabric that you purchase at the fabric store. Do not forget to get your son involved with the decorating and encourage him to bring his favorite cars to his room to play. Any learning experience that encourages creativity should be encouraged.
Ahoy, matey! Give your toddler the pirate theme bedroom he would love to have. Use large pieces of foam to wrap around his twin bed to form a pirate boat shape. The foam, as well as the fabric needed to cover it, can be found at any fabric store.
Use a tall piece of PVC piping to serve as the mast and attach a pirates Jolly Roger flag to the top. A painted mural of a deserted island and an open chest of gold coins is perfect for the walls.
Creating a themed bedroom for your toddler will help him or her adjust to being in a new home. Make the experience an exciting one by decorating the toddlers bedroom first. With a happy toddler in the house, the rest of the homes decorating may be just a little bit easier to accomplish.
