Hockey Themed Rooms: Bedding and Accessories
Thrill young hockey players with a hockey room
Goal! Hockey Rooms that Score
Whether a child plays youth hockey or simply adores watching the sport, creating a hockey room will create much joy in the life of the little hockey player.
The centerpiece of any hockey room is the bed, and there are many hockey bedding sets available to decorate the hockey bedroom. The general themes range from generic hockey bedding sets with skates, hockey sticks, and pucks to specific team bedding. For a small Red Wings, Penguins, or Sabres fan, team-specific bedding will make their day.
Complete bedding sets can be difficult to find. In this case, simply purchase plain sheets and buy the themed comforter. This will also save money, as purchasing themed sheets, blankets, and comforters will add to the price tag. The sheets are hidden by the comforter anyway, so focus on the bedding that can be seen.
Extend the hockey theme to the floor by adding a cheerful hockey rug. Team-specific rugs are available, and will coordinate well with any bedding containing a hockey fan's favorite team. Rug themes vary from team logos to reproductions of the team's ice arena.
For a more generic appeal, hockey rugs without a team logo are also available. Support the national origin of hockey and order a Canadian hockey rug!
Light Up the Hockey Room
Lighting is an essential component to any hockey room. A bedside table lamp will add hockey décor to the nightstand, and provide a little light for reading at night!
Generic hockey lamps are available, featuring themed lamp shades and other hockey gear. For a team-centered approach, many options are available. Lamps with the team logo or mascot on the base add a more subtle hockey design element, while Guidcraft takes the hockey lamp to another level with a decorated lamp shade and resin player going for a slapshot!
High end Tiffany lamps are also available, in designs to suit every team in the NHL. For overhead lighting, this is the best hockey themed choice!
Relax in a Hockey Chair
Adding hockey furniture to a hockey bedroom is a great way to add to the décor. A beanbag is a fun way for children to relax, and a giant vinyl bag in the shape of a hockey puck is sure to please. The beanbags offered on today's market are often "beanless," which makes them safer for young children.
Other kid's chairs are available with team logos and mascots. A relaxing club chair is manufactured by Kidzworld, and comes in every NHL team style. Rocking chairs may also be ordered to coordinate with a team-specific decorating style.
Adding a locker will increase the sporty look of the room, as well as add some needed storage. Beck Children's wooden lockers add functionality and style to any hockey room.
Hockey Wall Art
There are many ways to decorate the walls of a hockey room. Adding a hockey goalie made out of wrought iron is one way to bring the hockey theme to the room. Hockey decals are another excellent method for decorating the walls: decals are available in many different designs and may be generic or team-specific.
Fathead wall decals are large and impressive: a child's favorite team player will grace the walls, and the Fathead decals come with coordinating, smaller decals to complete the look of the room.
A framed mirror with a team's ice rink painted onto the glass is another way to bring the hockey theme to a bedroom. The shiny mirror surface mimics the look of ice, and adds brightens any wall surface.
Completing the Hockey Room
Add curtains and valances in coordinating team colors to dress up the windows. Hockey drawer pulls will incorporate the theme onto furniture in the hockey room. Even clocks can be found in a hockey theme.
Don't forget to paint the walls in a coordinating color, and let the young hockey fan help with the decorating process!
