Outdoors Camping Theme Kids’ Bedroom

Do you love camping? Or maybe just the *idea* of camping?

Today’s ‘Get This Look’ post is for anyone whose kiddos love camping and the outdoors. We’re sharing all the details on how to recreate this outdoors camping theme kids bedroom from a recent Utah Valley Parade of Homes by Arive Homes.

An outdoors camping theme is extremely versatile for decorating a child’s bedroom. It can be adapted to fit your son or daughter’s unique taste and interests. Pick and choose the design elements that make sense for your child’s space.

Another added bonus of an outdoors camping theme is that it has the ability to transition with your child as they grow.

To make the age transition simpler, anchor the room with neutral curtains and bedding. Then bring in your outdoors theme by adding camping wall art and decor, throw pillows, and playful items like a felt campfire set and teepee.

Whether you choose to incorporate all or just some of this room’s style elements, you’re sure to achieve a fun, outdoors vibe. Read on for our tips and recommended products!

6 Tips for Decorating a Camping Theme Kids Bedroom

1. Find Simple Curtains & an Artificial Tree

Simple curtains compliment this space without making it feel too busy. Adding an artificial ficus or pine tree to the room effectively brings the outdoors in.

Plus, a good artificial tree or bush can be used in many other spaces in your home when it comes time to change up your child’s bedroom decor.

2. Hang Affordable Camping Art Prints & Wall Decor

Art prints and wall decor are two of the easiest and affordable ways to incorporate a theme into a room design. Etsy is a fantastic place to find affordable and unique art prints no matter your chosen theme.

Right now Target also has some great outdoor adventure prints. And while somewhat trendy, a bear or moose head on the wall really completes this space.

3. Choose Neutral or Woodland Animal Bedding

When it comes to selecting bedding for your child’s camping room, a buffalo plaid or plain textured comforter are both good neutral options.

However, if you really want to get into the outdoor theme, there are plenty of campfire critter bedding and sheet sets out there to choose from.

Forest or animal themed throw pillows are another easy (and inexpensive) way to achieve the desired look.

4. Add a Kids Table & Area Rug

A kids picnic table is both functional and on-theme in a camping bedroom. It never hurts to have a designated space where your kiddos can do everything from reading to making art.

When it comes to area rugs, if the artificial turf green rug used here seems a bit over the top, we’ve include a few more traditional options below.

5. Don’t Forget a Campfire Play Set

One of the most special elements found in this camping theme kids bedroom is the campfire play set.
