Batman Themed Bedroom Decorating Ideas

Batman Emblem 3 Piece Reversible Super Soft Luxury Queen Size Comforter Set
Whether you're a fan of the movies, the comics, or the animated series (or all three, like me!) everyone can agree that the Dark Knight is pretty awesome. Batman makes a pretty great bedroom theme too, for boys and girls, featuring deep and stark colors and lots of interesting styles and designs. That's why this post will be dedicated to looking at all the things you'll need to make the perfect Batman bedroom.

Batman Themed Bedding and Pillows

DC Batman Bedding Collection
First of all you'll need an awesome batman bed. There's a number of different batman bedding sets, but the one above is probably my personal favorite. This collection comes with the comforter, a flat and fitted sheet set and one standard pillowcase. If you really want to go all out, you can even get an awesome Batman themed bed frame to put it on! I think that's pretty cool, and a great way to show that you are the ultimate Dark Knight fan. 
If you already have some black or navy blue sheets, an easy way to make a Batman themed bed without buying a full bedding collection is to buy a Dark Knight decorated blanket to lay over your bed.  For example, be sure to check out this fleece blanket featuring the Batman logo and the Dark Knight himself.

Batman Wall Decorations

Next up, no true Batman bedroom can have boring bare walls. A great way to jazz them up is with a cool Batman wall decal like the one above or this sweet set with many decals of Batman and the Joker. Decals are great as they are easy to apply and remove and don't leave any marks, since they don't use glue. There's also plenty of Dark Knight movie posters to collect if you are a fan of those, such as this iconic shot of Heath Ledger's Joker. If comic posters are your thing, check this one out.

Batman Furniture and Accessories

Batman Dresser
Batman furniture! It exists! Huzzah! If you need a place to store your things, the dresser above or this storage cube will do the trick, or alternatively this hanging organizer. Pick your favorite and go to town! Another cool idea is to have this life sized cut-out Batman watch over your room day and night. 
Batman Flying Bats Drapes
Finally, you'll want to dress up your windows with some sweet Batman window panels to match you bedding and the rest of your Dark Knight accessories. The drapes on the right are my personal favorite. You can also pick up a Batman window valence here. If you don't want to use branded curtains, another option is to buy plain navy blue drapes and use those instead.

So there you go, everything you need to make an awesome Batman themed bedroom and you have a lot of fun decorating. If you have more ideas or cool stuff I've missed, be sure to post it in the comments!

My Little Pony Bedroom Decorating Ideas

Back when I was a kid, My Little Pony was a fringe phenomena, but since the advent of Friendship is Magic, it has come leaps and bounds. Kids and adults love both the show and the toys, and people are going crazy for it. That's why a My Little Pony themed bedroom is a fun and adorable decorating idea for fans of the pony phenomena, and this post is going to look at all the basic you need for the perfect magical My Little Pony themed bedroom. 

My Little Pony Bedding and Pillows

My Little Pony Twin Comforter
First up, you'll need a My Little Pony bedding set and matching pillows to act as the centerpiece of your new bedroom. The colorful pink and blue My Little Pony bedding above is my favorite, but I also love this cute purple Twilight Sparkle twin comforter. Once you have the bedding, you'll want some cute matching pillows for your bed and sofa. There's a number of rectangular pillows with all the characters from the show for you to check out, like this cutie here

Once your bed is set up, you'll next need some cute curtains to match the bedding. On the left is the official My Little Pony curtains that would look amazing with the bedding I recommended above. I love the beautiful pastel color scheme and the stylish heart patterns. 

Another option is to go for some solid color window panels in colors matching the pony merchandise, such as these curtains in candy pink or sky blue. You can also find a longer version of those curtain panels here. Be sure to get a cute color that matches your pony bedding, and it'll be perfect all year round. 

My Little Pony Wall Decorations

My Little Pony Wall Stickers
Next up, don't leave your walls boring and bare when there's so many magical pony themed wall stickers and decals you can use to turn your wall into a landscape for the ponies to play on, like the set above!  the cool thing about decals is they are easy to apply and remove and they don't use glue, so they don't make any marks on your wall when you take them off. Pretty handy! Another cute pony wall decoration that I recommend everyone have in their bedroom is this My Little Pony themed wall clock - it's so pretty!

My Little Pony Bedroom Accessories

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic
Fluttershy Plush Doll Toy
The obvious bedroom accessory for a My Little Pony bedroom are some gorgeous My Little Pony figures! You can find them all here, be sure to collect them all! A cute companion piece to a pony figure is a cute pony plush doll like the one on the right. You can find some of the other ponies as these links: Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, DJ Pon, Rainbow Dash, Princess Luna, and Octavia.

So that's my guide to the essentials of a My Little Pony themed bedroom wonderland. I hope you enjoyed it! If you did, be sure to check out the rest of this blog to discover many, many more fun-filled bedroom decorating ideas for kids, teens and adults alike. Happy decorating!
