Whether your child’s favourite superhero is Ironman, Hulk, Superman or Captain America – here are five DIY décor ideas to create a superhero haven.

Jackson has a new favourite superhero every week, so we tried not to focus on one character. We created a superhero bedroom, even making Dad jealous!

1. Feature Wall

We decided on having a statement wall and found a retro comic style wallpaper, which we hung behind the TV. The wallpaper has a bright and bold print creating a striking effect.

We loved the wallpaper print, so we used it throughout the bedroom. We cut out individual comic covers from the wallpaper and framed prints with white gloss picture frames.

We also cut out and glued wallpaper to some 3D letters. We painted the side of the letters in bright red paint and spelt out Jackson’s name. He loved the personalisation!

2. Storage Boxes

Boys have so many toys – lots of little cars, guns, Lego, and dinosaurs. We needed some storage to keep all of his bits and bobs organised.

We already had a white cube storage unit and decided to design our storage boxes to fit into it.

We purchased four brightly coloured storage boxes, which are perfect for children. They are made from canvas and are light enough for kids to pull out their toys with ease. And put their toys away, more importantly!

We found some superhero logo stencils on the internet. Having printed them, we outlined the stencils onto felt sheets and cut them out. We used fabric glue to attach the felt logos. Superman is my favourite.

3. Hero-Up

Jackson loves wearing his superhero costumes; sometimes one over the other!

We decided on making the Hero-Up changing corner where his outfits can hang up on display.

We used two white coat racks and a large vinyl Hero-Up sticker. We pasted the vinyl above the hooks and added two framed pictures, using the comic design from the feature wallpaper.

It was his favourite feature of the whole room, so I would recommend creating one!

4. Up-cycled Furniture

We already had two chests of drawers. They mismatched the rest of the furniture in the bedroom.

We wanted to up-cycle them rather than buy new furniture. We painted the outside of the cupboards in white gloss to match the white gloss TV table and storage unit.

We painted each drawer in bright and bold colours with contrasting coloured handles.

We came across superhero logo stickers that fit perfectly in the centre of each drawer.

The chests of drawers are eye-catching and sit perfectly amongst all of his superhero accessories.

5. Accessories

We did not need to purchase many accessories as he already had superhero toys, books and costumes.

However, we did buy some finishing touches, such as matching bedding for his bunk beds. We purchased a light shade, red curtains and a striking Captain America rug which sets the room off.

We mounted three night-lights on the top bunk bed. Each night light came with a vinyl wall crack giving it a realistic 3D effect.

The night lights are another of Jackson’s favourites. It is worth doing as it makes for great décor, and it is comforting to fall asleep.

Creating a superhero haven was worth the effort to see his smile.

I would urge you to decorate your little superhero’s bedroom even if you are on a budget! Most of these ideas are inexpensive, or you can buy second hand to keep costs down.
