5 DIY Superhero Bedroom Decor Ideas

Whether Superman, Ironman, Hulk or Captain America is their favourite; these 5 room decor ideas are perfect for a superhero mad little one! Jackson has a new favourite superhero every week so it was difficult to zone into just one. We created a superhero haven making even Dad jealous!

Check out our DIY projects and hopefully you will find some inspiration from our superhero bedroom decor ideas:

1 Feature Wall

We decided on having a statement wall and found this retro comic style wallpaper which we hung behind the TV. The wallpaper has bright and bold colours and created a really striking effect.

We loved the print and wanted to carry it throughout the bedroom. We cut out individual comic covers from the wallpaper and framed them with white gloss picture frames.

We also covered some 3D letters from the wallpaper, painted the sides of the letters in bright red paint and spelt out Jackson’s name. He loved the personal touch!

2 Storage Boxes

Boys have so many toys; lots of little cars, guns, Lego, dinosaurs etc. We needed some storage boxes to keep all of his bits and bobs organised. We already had the white gloss cupboard so decided to design our own storage boxes to fit inside.

We purchased four brightly coloured storage boxes which are perfect for children as they are made from canvas and are really light for them to pull out their toys and put away more importantly!

We found some superhero logo stencils on the internet and printed them out. We then outlined the logos onto felt sheets and cut them out. We used fabric glue to attach the felt logos and they fixed pretty well. I loved the way the logos turned out and think Superman’s my favourite!

3 Hero-Up

Jackson absolutely loves wearing his superhero costumes; sometimes one over the other! We decided on making this ‘Hero-Up’ changing corner where his outfits can hang up on display.

It was actually his favourite feature of the whole room so I would definitely recommend adding this to any little one’s superhero bedroom!

It was simple to make; we used two white coat racks, a large vinyl ‘Hero-Up’ sticker which we pasted above the hooks and added two framed pictures using the comic design from the feature wallpaper.

4 Up-cycled Furniture

We already had two pine chest of drawers which were a mismatch. We decided to up-cycle them rather than buy new furniture, so we painted the outside of the cupboards in white gloss to match the white gloss TV table and storage unit.

We then painted each drawer with bright and bold colours with contrasting drawer knobs.

We measured the width to find superhero logo stickers that fit ideally in the centre of each drawer.

The chest of drawers are eye catching and sit perfectly amongst all of his other superhero decor.

5 Accessories

We didn’t need to purchase many accessories as he already had superhero costumes, books and toys. We did purchase some finishing touches; matching bedding for his bunk beds, a matching lamp shade, bold red curtains and a striking Captain America rug which set the room off in style!

We set up three night lights mounted on the wall on the top bunk bed.

Each night light came with a vinyl wall crack giving it a 3D effect… making it look like Captain America’s shield and Thor’s Hammer were thrown and stuck into the wall and Hulk’s fist appeared to be punching through the wall.

This is another of Jackson’s favourites so worth doing as its great decor and is comforting for a child before going to sleep.

The effort was worth it just to see his smile. I would urge you to decorate your little superheroes bedroom even if you are on a budget! Most of these ideas are inexpensive or can be bought second hand to keep costs down.
