Regardless of age or gender, if someone in your life has become football obsessed, this is the perfect bedroom choice. Football themed interiors are becoming more common for many reasons. Whether it’s ticket price rises or just the hectic nature of modern life, going to watch the game in a stadium isn’t always an option. And, catching the match at home on a flat screen TV isn’t quite like being there. But with some smart interior moves, you can feel closer to the action.

So, go a little football crazy with these cool ideas that definitely won’t prove to be a home goal.

Where to start decorating?

We thought we’d give you some ideas on how to have your own football themed interior! Whether you’re a Manchester United, City, Chelsea or an Arsenal fan – we have ideas on how to make any room look as football themed as possible.

There are a few things to take into consideration before starting such a project. For example, should you focus on a specific team or should it be a more general approach? And what are your options in terms of furniture and decorations?

Football Colour Scheme

When it comes to decorating your Football themed bedroom, the colour scheme of your themed room will probably pay homage to your favourite team. Whether a Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea or Everton fan, there is no question that there are specific well-known colours for team kits in the world of football.

The fact that most teams rely upon one basic primary colour such as red or blue for their strip is partly a blessing and a curse. Some team colours will work better than others. So, if you are a supporter of a side that wears a really woeful colour combination, think about taking a few subtle cues rather than going for a full strip style decor.

For a subtler look, it’s best to use a palette of two or three colours for the bedroom. If the colours are not appropriate for entire painted walls, consider a two-toned look. With a neutral colour at the top of the walls, a bold team colour at the bottom and a decorative rail dividing the two.

Other options include stripes created with painter’s tape or one accent wall in the bolder colour.
