10 Themed Bedrooms for Kids

Parents, roll up your sleeves. A combination of creative thinking and a little elbow grease can transform your child's room from a boring box into a stimulating sanctuary. These rooms are as much fun to decorate as they are to live in.

Under the Sea

Your little marine enthusiast will treasure this under-the-sea adventure room, complete with a gnarly surfing headboard and a treasure-chest bed. But the children's room mural is the star of the show in this water wonderland. "When a child walks in the room and shuts his door, he feels, literally, like he's underwater," says designer Becky Najafi, of the De Atelier Design Group.

The underwater party on the walls did create a dilemma, however: The swarm of beautiful oceanic creatures wash a wave of watery authenticity over the space, but leave little room for bookcases or large pieces of furniture. Najafi solved the storage problem by finding a treasure of a captain's bed for this undersea adventure, which keeps a wealth of booty hidden inside.
