Harry Potter Themed Bedroom Decor Ideas

Harry Potter School Motto Twin/Full Comforter with 2 Pillow Shams
I am a huge Harry Potter fan, and have been since the Sorceror's Stone came out all those years ago. That's why I had to put together a sweet guide to decorating a Harry Potter themed bedroom for all my fellow wizards and muggles out there who loved the books and movies as much as I did. Enjoy!

Harry Potter Bedding

Hogwarts Crest Bedding
First things first, every Potter bedroom needs some appropriately themed bedding to form the centerpiece of the display. There are a couple of really cool Harry Potter bedding sets out there, such as the one featured at the top of this page which comes with the gorgeous Hogwarts crest comforter and two pillow shams.

Harry Potter Gryffindor's
Crest Tapestry Throw
If you like the sort of color pencil art featured on the book covers, then check out this 'In Flight' bedding set, each of which comes with a flat and fitted sheet set as well as a pillow sham.

If you are on a tight budget, a cheap alternative to buying a full bedding set is to buy a Harry Potter blanket throw and match it with your existing sheets. I highly recommend the Gryffindor crest blanket on the right: you can also get a version with the crests of Ravenclaw, Slytherin, and Hufflepuff to, so pick the house you think you would be sorted into!

You can also get a cool Marauder's Map themed blanket and a matching pillow sham to go with it!

Harry Potter Wall Decorations

Quote DUMBLEDORE ~ Harry Potter - WALL DECAL
Since there are so many color schemes associated with the various houses and families, pretty much any color wall paint can be made to look amazing in a Harry Potter themed bedroom. I'm a particular fan of using some shade of light grey, however. It looks amazing with some of the deep Gryffindor reds and gives the room a very castle-like feel, which is magic!

Solemnly Swear Up to No Good
Don't leave those freshly painted walls bare either. There's lots of fun ways you can decorate your Harry Potter themed dorm room, starting with some cute decals. There's lots of decals featuring quotes from the book, such as the one above, which are a great way to show off your fandom. You can also pick up a giant Harry Potter wall decal or this pack of smaller character and house crest decals.

If you are really looking to emulate the wizarding world, why not hang up some Hogwarts wall banners, and some 'Undesirables' wanted posters? You can also bring the characters from the series right into your bedroom with some of these awesome life-sized stand-up posters.

Harry Potter Bedroom Accessories

Gringotts Bank Ornament
Last but not least, you'll need some cute decorative accessories to give your bedroom the finishing touch. Hallmark make a lot of beautiful bedroom ornaments that are a wonderful place to start, such as the amazing Gringotts replica above, and this Harry and Voldemort final battle ornament, this Dumbledore and Harry figurine.

Wizarding World Harry Potter
Buckbeak 13" Large Plush Doll
If you are a huge fan of teddies and plushies, then you are in luck - you can get loads of Harry Potter creature comforts out there, such as Hedwig, Fluffy, Fawkes the Phoenix, Crookshanks, Scabbers the rat, and the cute Buckbeak teddy featured on the right. Collect all of your favorites and make a big pile of them!

So that's my guide to creating your very own wizarding world, right there in your bedroom. I hope you found some cool knick-knacks and have a lot of fun decorating!
