Hogwarts Castle - Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle - Room Décor, Toys, Games, Collectibles and More!

Updated on August 17, 2011

One of the biggest things that J.K. Rowlings brings to life in her Harry Potter novels is the description and the excitement of living at Hogwarts Castle.

Ever since the day that her first book was released, Harry Potter fans the world over wanted to duplicate the magical surroundings in their own bedrooms and houses and luckily there are many items available to do just that.

There are also tons of games, puzzles and even lego sets that can bring the magic that is Hogwarts into your own home.

Room Decor Ideas

One of the great things about duplicating Hogwarts Castle in your child's bedroom or in a family room is that you have the choice to go simple or the choice to go all out in authenticity.

To Go Simple: You only need to purchase a few Hogwarts Castle items such as a comforter, a few Hogwarts Castle throw pillows and a couple of Hogwarts Castle movie posters.

To Go All Out: You can purchase items such as: a Talking Sorting Hat, Harry Potter Wand, Harry Potter Wand Display, a TriWizard Cup Lamp, a Leaky Cauldron Metal Sign, a Goblet of Fire Votive Holder, a Harry Potter Broom to place on wall, and even a replica of the actual Sorcerer's Stone in a display case or Hermione's Time Turner.

A Combination of Both: There of coarse is also the option of combining a little of the two and combining some basics with some of the more authentic items to bring the room to life.

Going Simple

Here are a few items if you decide to go the simple route.

You have a few choices when it comes to bedding.

You can purchase a ready-made licensed Hogwarts Castle comforter, blanket or throw;

Or make your own by purchasing a specific house banner such as Slytherin, Griffyndor, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw banner and sewing it on a complimentary colored plain comforter.

Add a few throw pillows such as the Marauders Map Pillow or use few plush figures on the bed such as Hedwig the Owl, Fawkes the Phoenix or Buckbeak.

Finally bring it all together by putting up a few Harry Potter Posters, a banner or two or by placing a Harry Potter Flying Broom on the wall.

Going All Out

There are so many wonderfully authentic Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle items available if you really want to go all out in a bedroom or family room.

Along with the bedding and comforter ideas listed above you can also add items such as:

  • Harry Potter Talking Sorting Hat
  • Hermione Granger's Time Turner
  • Replica of Locket From the Cave
  • Harry Potter Collector Wand Wall Display
  • A more elaborate and authentic TriWizard Champions Wand Set
