Does your little sportsperson keep telling you about their football bedroom ideas? Well, maybe it is time you should listen with the help of our ideas.

Admit it – cool ideas for the bedroom will make a great talking point amongst their friends. Your goal should be having their friends begging for the same design in their room. That's when you know you have nailed the kids' room. You could have a makeover that is as simple as changing the colour of the walls, or you can have a total makeover with football pillows and other fun accessories.

If they are football-crazy, football mad, you can give your football-themed bedroom ideas a go!

How to plan a football bedroom

Perfecting the dream bedroom design for your little football fan can be tricky. However, there is plenty to play around with to create something pretty spectacular. It can become easy when you put your mind to it and plan your children's football bedroom ideas in advance.

Pick the best football team

Kids will have their favourite team and tend to be very sure of who that is. So, before beginning any decorating you need to find out what team they support. Some children do change their minds every week, depending on who is winning match after match. It is worth checking that they are sure about their chosen team. If not, you can use various team colours and make a more generic football room.

Use team colours

Most teams rely on using one basic primary colour for the badge and branding so we suggest having this as your starting point. Any other colours they have can be used as accent colours. For example, Arsenal is predominantly red with gold and navy, Man United is red with yellow, and Chelsea is blue with white. This is the best colour palette you could use for a football bedroom.

Think of an accent wall idea

The first option could be a bright wall colour while keeping the other plain. On the other hand, you could feature a stunningly detailed picture to fill the whole wall as a mural. Another alternative would be to scatter their team badge over one wall – that is sure to catch everyone's attention.

Work out the space you have

Before you start filling the room with a unique and unusual accessory or two, consider the space you have for it all. You don't want to get too ahead with your ideas that there is no longer room for them to be in the right place. Once you know the storage space, floor area and any other nooks to utilise then you pick out the bedroom furniture.

Find something to give the wow effect

If they get excited watching their team score then you could find something that captures that moment. It could be a picture of a winning goal that can bring enjoyment every time they look at it. Otherwise, you might decide to frame and hang a signed football shirt on the wall – this would be an incredible surprise for all football fans.


Our top football ideas

To give you a better picture of some football ideas, we have tried to separate each bedroom category to show you what we suggest having in a football bedroom.

Football accessories

This is the soft furnishings you add to the room, as well as other home decor. For something a bit more fun, there are football pitch rugs that can really bring the room together and make the bedroom cosier. Of course, you could get football-shaped cushions too.

Football bedding

The bedding for your kids might be a complete set with a duvet cover and a pillowcase – either with lots of footballs, funky/bold patterns, or their chosen team. A bed is usually central to the bedroom so you will want the bedsheets to be just as exciting as the rest of the room. However, if there is something you want to stand out from everything then you may decide to keep the bedding subtle and focus on the surrounding decor.

Perfect wall decoration, wall art and wall stickers

There are storage racks that display balls so they can be attached to the wall to show a vintage football, an iconic football or any others they have been given. The most obvious suggestion would be to have a gallery wall full of various football-related prints. If you are looking for something that's unique then you look into getting personalised wall stickers, like a footballer silhouette with your kid's name on the back of the shirt.

Another idea we recommend is the team's motto as a wall decal on an accent wall.


Distinctive light switch

The light switch can be quite plain and boring so why not make it part of the decoration? Disguise the switch as a football by using a sticker that has been designed for that purpose. You could turn it into a picture of a stadium, or a football pitch, or have a tiny football resting on top. Make it fun – it is the smaller details that people will love and be most impressed with.

Football themed armchair

While it might be harder to find a football-inspired armchair, you will definitely find a football-shaped bean bag. For the full effect you could get a matching footstool too – can't beat having somewhere to put your feet up.


Girls' and boys' football bedroom ideas are always a good theme to work with if you are stuck on what to do. It can be adapted to suit each child with their love and interest in football. All colours of football teams work with many other colours so the options are endless.

As a CPD certified Sleep Consultant I know how important sleep is. And as a combination sleeper, I have found it difficult to get products to suit my sleep style. I have more than 2 years product testing experience with The Sleep Advisors which means I have slept on, with and under more than 500 products with varying degrees of success. This is added to more than 2 years experience as a product reviewer for Closer, Heat and Grazia magazines, so I've got a rigorous process. I love sharing my sleep testimonials with our readers and hearing their experiences too.
