Sports-Themed Home Decorating Ideas

Decorating in a sports-theme is appropriate for any room in your house including bedrooms, family rooms, living rooms, hallways and dens. Decorating with a sports-theme in mind comes with many possibilities and allows the fan in you to show off your team or sports spirit and loyalty while providing unique and exciting home dΓ©cor. A sports-theme is easily adaptable to your unique personality, style and preferences. This dΓ©cor is widely available now a day and you can use your already collected sports memorabilia to add that special sports touch to any sports-themed room.

First, you need to choose a theme for your room’s dΓ©cor. Sports-themes are endless. You can decorate around a particular College or Professional sports, team or sports in general including dΓ©cor from different sports. You need to decide first off if you want to decorate around a specific sports or team or around a little bit of everything. This design decision will guide you through the rest of your design process.

If you or your family has a favorite team, decorating around this team should be a natural decision. If not, you can decorate around specific sport(s). You can paint the walls in the bright and bold colors of your team or in a natural bright and bold color like red, blue, orange and/or yellow and decorate the walls with your team’s log, mascot or general sports dΓ©cor. First, stencil the dΓ©cor on the walls and then paint it. Add wallpaper bordering and wall decals for that special touch. Adding accessories such as throw blankets, pillows, bedding, blankets and rugs with team logos and colors or in shape of baseball, basketballs, footballs or other dΓ©cor are widely available.

Next, add special accents like pennants and signs for your team or sport(s). These are widely available for a variety of College and Professional teams or generically. They are easy to hang and are a great way to add personality and brightness to a wall. Also, consider adding sports-themed clocks, mirrors and framed jerseys.

For that authentic sporting look and feel, decorate with real sports equipment. You can attach hockey sticks and tennis rackets to the walls. You can display baseballs, footballs, basketballs, and other small sporting goods on shelves and in curio cabinets. Get shoes and skates and hang them from hooks after tying the shoe laces together. Hang a basketball hoop on the wall and fill with foam balls of all types. Place a small soccer goal on one end of a room and place in the goal small sports-themed bean bag chairs or a locker for storage.
