When it comes to decorating a boy’s bedroom, the task can seem a bit overwhelming. Various factors can go into decorating a boy’s room, including color, theme, and size. Size may be one of the more important aspects, because you need to appropriate décor with the size of the actual bedroom.
Even if you have a tiny space to fill, there are ways to decorate it without adding too much clutter or unnecessary elements that will make the room feel small. We’ve compiled some of the best boy’s bedroom ideas for small spaces that will surely spark some inspiration to get you on your way.
#1. Decorative Pillows
Decorative pillows can really make or break a room depending on the size. This pillow makes a great addition because the colors are perfect to fit the theme for a boy’s room. There are also plenty of colors to choose from when it comes to decorative pillows, so if these colors aren’t in your theme, you can find lots of others.
#2. Rustic Look
If you prefer a room with a more rustic look, this bedroom idea would be the perfect concept that can be easily pulled off. All you need is a little bit of natural wood and some imagination. These farmhouse colors – the pale blues, crisp whites and natural wood – are a great way to add that country feel into any space.
#3. Baseball Theme
This baseball themed bedroom would be a young boys dream come true. This would make the perfect setting for a kid who loves baseball, or really, any kind of sport. You could easily change this bedroom idea up for the basketball or football lover in your life. The baseball chair and footrest is the cutest thing in this bedroom!
#4. Bold Pieces
So, although you’re decorating a boy’s room that’s on the smaller size, that doesn’t mean you can’t go bold with some décor. This bedroom stands out with that prominent lamp and lush desk plant. The dark bed frame and darker wooden furniture also makes this room feel bolder due to the hues of color.
#5. Nautical Theme
This nautical themed bedroom would make the perfect place to fall asleep ready for the next seaside adventure. The colors and decorative elements within this bedroom is a common theme when it comes to decorating a boy’s room and you just can’t go wrong when you use the sea as inspiration for a bedroom of this size.
#6. Coastal Bedroom Theme
Here is another nautical themed bedroom that would be perfect for the seafarer in your life. These colors just go great together – the reds, blues and white. The extra additions of the decorative anchors and furnishings makes this room cozy as well as adorable. This would be perfect a smaller boys room.
#7. Rocking Stripes
This bedroom is fantastic with all of these interesting stripe patterns. The bed takes the center stage in this design, while the decorative pillows add unique patterns and texture to the theme. This just goes to prove that you don’t need a lot of elements to make a bedroom feel cozier.

Who doesn’t appreciate splashing around in the waves and relaxing by the ocean? This room is an accurate depiction of the guy who loves the beach.
#9. Rustic Kid’s Bedroom
This bedroom is a bit more on the rustic side. If the longhorn skull didn’t tip you off, this room belongs to someone who is probably in to cowboys and western themes. Don’t worry though, I’m pretty sure the longhorn skull is fake. The colors within this bedroom are bold and full of personality, much like the owner of this bedroom has to be.
#10. Simple Colors
This bedroom may be a bit on the smaller side, but these colors really make the space pop. You don’t need a lot of décor or even colors when it comes to smaller bedrooms since too many colors can make the room seem messy and even smaller. Simplicity is best when it comes to a smaller bedroom like this one.
#11. Modern Boy’s Room
This boy’s room is a bit more on the modern side. The décor is sleek and minimalistic and the room is well organized. Obviously this would be a better bedroom concept for an older child, one that can keep the room tidy and won’t mess with extra décor here and there.
#12. Teenage Boy’s Room
This is a classic glimpse into a pretty standard teenage boy’s room. If the guitar didn’t tip you off, this boy likes rock n’ roll. This is pretty standard when it comes to decorating a boy’s room and the minimalistic décor within this room only adds to the charm of this room.
#13. Modern Apartment Bedroom
This sleeked out bedroom is nestled within an apartment in a high rise in a metropolitan city, more than likely a city like New York or Chicago. The mellow mood lighting within this room makes the room feel bigger and that calming feeling is extended to the large window overlooking the busy city below.
#14. Colorful Kid’s Room
This colorful bedroom features all kinds of elements a kid would love. The bedspread alone is adorable and adds plenty of character to this smaller room. The matching wall décor within this bedroom only adds more of that classic kid’s room charm and really livens up the space without making it feel cramped.
#15. Fresh and Modern Guy’s Room
This is a fresher take on a more modern bedroom presumably belonging to a teenager or young adult. This is a great concept – mixing in peaks of nature within a minimalistic setting. The pops of green from the living plants makes this room feel more open and airy. A good tactic to keep in mind for a smaller bedroom.
#16. Clean and Classic
This cleaner take on a modern bedroom features a minimalistic approach, but the trick is to keep it minimal, but interesting. This bedroom does a good job in the department by adding some interesting posters on the wall and some swanky décor throughout the space.
#17. Asian Inspired Decor
This bedroom is as serene as the Japanese tea gardens. This is the perfect bedroom for the boy or guy who is inspired by Asian culture. The gorgeous art on the walls is only exemplified by this really great wall lighting that helps bring out all the subtle colors throughout his bedroom.
#18. Study Room
Perfect for the little brainiac, this bedroom is filled with pretty much just the essentials. This is a calmer small bedroom that would be ideal for studying late at night or even practicing for a test coming up via that tiny desk. This is a cute way to spruce up a small bedroom without cluttering.
#19. Perfectly Organized
This bedroom features plenty of interesting stuff to look at, but the trick from making this smaller space seem too overwhelming with décor is keeping everything organized. There is a term “method to madness” which applies well here. This is sort of an ordered chaos effect that looks really great.
#20. Dark Teal Walls
This bedroom may be more on the small side, since it looks like it could easily double as a guest sitting room, but the dark teal color against the walls really brings out the depth within this bedroom. Better yet, this bedroom features that large open window which lets in natural light, lengthening the space.

#21. Cars and Baseball
This classic boy’s room features plenty of elements that remind me of baseball and cars. Of course, the obvious thing is that really great baseball poster right at the back wall. The other decorative element I like is the functional side dresser or side table that looks like the kinds of sheet metal you’d find in a car garage.
#22. Lighting Options
Making a light fixture the centerpiece within a small bedroom is a great way to open up the space and create some lengthening lighting. In this case, the center piece in this bedroom is the orb-like light fixture. This is a really cool element that casts crisp white light throughout the room which helps open up the space.
#23. Modern Minimalist
This modern, minimalistic bedroom is great for the teenager in your life. There is very little décor, but that means less clutter. This seems to be a more functional bedroom; in that everything you see pretty much serves a purpose. This is perfect for a young adult or a teenager attending college or high school.
#24. Young Man’s Bedroom
This bedroom may be a bit small, but the space inside is really interesting. The first thing that catches the eye is that glowing globe lamp. Simple elements like this really add character and charisma into a space, no matter the size. This is ideal for a growing man’s bedroom.
#25. No Frills Bedroom
This bedroom pretty much gets to the point. There isn’t much décor in this bedroom aside from that plant at the top of the dresser and the tiny statue of a horse, but this seems to be the bedroom that belongs to a young adult who doesn’t have the need or time to decorate anyways. It just works.
#26. College Guy
This bedroom more than likely belongs to a young man attending college. The Andy Warhol quote poster kind of tips you off when it comes to that presumption. This is a great, minimalistic yet modern bedroom that would be perfect of the college kid in your life
#27. White Space
Keeping the walls and floors white within a bedroom may feel like you’re walking through an asylum, but as this swanky bedroom presents, that creepy feeling can be cancelled out by using plenty of interesting, slightly decorative elects. This bedspread and dresser combination just works in this bedroom.
#28. Everything in Place
This small bedroom concept may feature a few extra items, but it remains uncluttered. Once everything has an order or place, it’s easy to see if you can add more or take away elements from a small bedroom space. This is a good concept considering this room is a bit longer and narrow.
#29. Interesting Pieces
This bedroom is still considered a small bedroom, but the large window helps free up the space and create the illusion that the room is larger than what it is. This is a good concept for a room that can incorporate a window and some extra fun decorative elements, such as that candelabra.
#30. Sleek Design
This bedroom is sleek in it’s minimalist design. The white walls are broken up by the closet element, which has panels that will open for reveal the closet behind them. This is a good way to break up the room, but the white throughout this bedroom makes the space seem interesting.
#31. Mirror Wall
This bedroom looks double its size due to the very large paneled mirrors at the side of the room. What’s even better is that the mirrors are probably hiding a very large closet space, which can also be properly utilized for storage that can free up space within the actual bedroom.
