Children's rooms are probably the most frequently changing spaces in our homes. Throughout childhood, children's rooms can undergo transformations even three times! The first arrangement of a child's room takes place when the little one enters the world. Typically, we decorate the nursery in soft and pastel colors, focusing on its functionality. What predominates in rooms for young children are various blackout curtains, small lamps, shelves, and posters with animals or wall stickers. Such a arranged room accompanies the toddler until preschool years. It is precisely at that time, when our child is about to go to kindergarten or the first grade of primary school, that we decide on another modification of the child's room.

The early school age is a moment when the child communicates their needs better, and their interests take clearer shape. It is a time when the children's room transforms into a dinosaur cave, a realm of elves, a base for superheroes, or a land of Lego bricks.

In this article, we will provide you with tips on how to decorate a Lego-themed children's room to foster a child's imagination while also creating a great space for play and learning.

Designing a Lego-themed room

When preparing to arrange a room with a Lego theme, we need to answer several key questions. One of them is whether the Lego room is intended for a boy or a girl. We all know that games and play have no gender, especially Lego bricks! However, before we embark on the transformation of the room, we can decide on the color scheme. Are we opting for a colorful finish that will be gender-neutral, or are we leaning towards a narrower color palette? From our experience, boys' Lego rooms are most often kept in subdued colors such as gray and black, with accents of yellow and white. For girls, on the other hand, dominant colors are often pink, purple, and white. The choice is yours and your child's – you will know best which colors suit you.

Another important question to ask ourselves before starting to decorate a Lego fan's room is about our budget. It's not surprising for any parent that Lego bricks alone can be a significant expense. Even not-too-large sets of Lego bricks can exceed a few dozen currency units. However, not many people know that the Lego company releases not only bricks but also interior accessories! Successfully, we can acquire various decorations that we can build ourselves with bricks, such as flower bouquets, bonsai trees, or superhero paintings, or a world map. For those who prefer ready-made solutions in decoration and interior design, Lego also has something for them in its assortment. Among them are various containers with drawers that can serve as organizers on a child's desk or classic storage for everyday items. The selection of containers is really extensive and can take on almost all the shapes of bricks known to our children, from the shape of a Lego minifigure head to the classic top-closed ones.

Lego is not only about bricks but also interior accessories.

While browsing the range of interior accessories from the Lego brand, we can also find interesting wall-mounted clothing hooks, photo frames, shelves, and mugs. The undeniable advantages of purchasing these accessories branded with the Lego logo are their high quality, original craftsmanship, and easy and quick access. A few clicks on the official Lego bricks website, and after a few days, the accessories arrive ready at our doorstep. The downside, of course, is the price, which can sometimes be quite staggering.

This raises another question – is it possible to decorate a boy's room in a Lego style inexpensively? Definitely yes, and in this article, we will prove it. The only things needed are time and a bit of enthusiasm for work because many of these accessories can be made by yourself. It's worth involving your child in the collaborative effort of creating a Lego-themed room. This provides an opportunity to spend time together, strengthen family bonds, and boost confidence in one's own abilities and possibilities. In this way, we can also increase our child's self-esteem, stimulate their imagination, and enhance creativity.

DIY Ideas for a Lego-Themed Boy's Room

If the current furniture in the boy's room has smooth fronts, we can easily transform them to resemble the characteristic Lego bricks. To do this, we need to go to a hardware store and purchase thick plywood (we can also buy thick upholstery foam, although it will be a less durable solution). Then, cut circles out of the plywood and securely glue them to the furniture fronts at equal intervals, creating the Lego brick effect. After the glue dries (probably after a few hours), use furniture spray paint or a brush to paint the entire front of the furniture, not forgetting to cover the attached circles. Choosing glossy paint will give you a shiny Lego brick effect. Matte paint will also be fine and will look good – the final decision is up to you. Thanks to this simple procedure, we have obtained a unique Lego-themed piece of furniture inexpensively!

Containers and Lego Boxes

In a very similar way, we can proceed with preparing storage containers. Here, too, it would be advisable to purchase simple containers resembling shoeboxes in shape (or use sturdy cardboard shoeboxes) and stick circles made of plywood or another hard material – stick, paint, and done! You can find such sturdy containers in hardware stores (such as Castorama, Obi, or Leroy Merlin), in art supply stores, Pepco, or IKEA. Decoupage containers will also be a brilliant solution as they are characterized by high durability and easy painting. Look for such decoupage boxes and chests, for example, on online marketplaces like Allegro.

Wall decorations with a Lego theme

When all the planned furniture is ready, we can move on to creating smaller but still significant accessories to enhance the Lego-themed room. Wall graphics with a Lego theme will come in handy here, and you can find them, for example, at Scandi Poster store. Lego posters can be hung side by side or on each wall separately. It really depends on the arrangement of furniture in your child's room.

If you prefer subdued colors, you can choose black and white Lego posters and graphics. In Scandi Poster's offer, you will find interesting posters depicting the construction of a Lego minifigure and graphics featuring the construction of a classic Lego brick.

Wanting to take it a step further and seeking even more original wall decorations in the Lego style, you can purchase a thick wall frame (available, among other places, at IKEA under the name Ribba) and create your own design with bricks, for example, the initial letter of your child's name or attach Lego minifigures to it. You can also use a Lego baseplate and attach bricks to it according to your own preferences. There are truly many ideas for Lego-themed walls, and your only limitation is your own imagination.

We're building containers and hangers from bricks

You can create more decorations simply by using bricks. Encourage your child to make their own tissue box holder from Lego bricks. Provide them with a tissue box and motivate them to build a cover for it. From a tissue box holder to a pencil, pen, or crayon organizer, the journey is not far! Build more containers from bricks and place them on the desk or shelf.

By dedicating a larger quantity of bricks, you can also build your own clothes hangers. However, remember to use a strong adhesive when attaching the bricks to each other during the construction of the hanger so that the bricks can bear the weight of the clothes hung on it. If, however, you prefer not to glue the bricks together, you can build a hanger for something lightweight, such as keys. This won't require gluing the bricks, and it can be an interesting form of decoration as well as an additional way to teach your child to put things in their place.

Lego figure from a Jar

Another idea for decorating a child's room in a Lego style is to use jars from jam or other preserves. Let's look through our supplies for jars whose shape resembles the head of a Lego minifigure. Purchase glass paint in a bright yellow color and paint the jar from the inside or outside (depending on the wear resistance and intended use of the paint). After it dries, use paint or a non-erasable marker to add eyes and a mouth, and the minifigure-shaped container is ready! You can use it as a pencil holder or a pot for small potted plants (in this case, it's better to paint the external part of the jar to prevent the paint from affecting the plants' growth).

Lego Pegboard

If you have a large quantity of bricks to use and a sizable pegboard, you can also create your own pegboard to store items such as pens, a phone, or computer headphones. You can mount such a pegboard above your child's bed or desk. Remember to use a strong adhesive to attach the bricks to the pegboard for safety reasons, allowing you to confidently hang larger and heavier items on it. Securely fasten the pegboard to the wall as well.
