As a kid, I was infinitely jealous of any kid with a themed bedroom. My best friend’s room was lightly underwater-themed (meaning green and blue paint and extra sea stuffed animals) and her sister’s room was jungle-y with big cats everywhere. Mine was a mess of Barbie dolls, glow-in-the-dark stars, Winnie the Pooh blankets, and leopard pillows. I’ve never quite gotten over the idea of theme rooms for kids (or for grown-ups) – thank you Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. I would love to have any of the following rooms (like, today… right now… as a 20-year-old).
Let’s start off strong. You get to sleep in a pirate ship. Enough said.
Who wouldn’t want an entire surf shack in their room? Because I sure would.
I’m the farthest thing from a street kid/skater, but it doesn’t even matter. This room rocks.
This is a fucking submarine. You could imagine that you were always at the bottom of the ocean. Maybe you’re going to find Atlantis! This room is great.
It’s a spaceship! You’re sleeping in a floating bed! All you need now is zero gravity.
Ever wanted to go on a safari? Now you can, from the convenience of your own bed! What could be better?
I think this is my dream room. It’s like straight up Cinderella-style, complete with singing mice and fairy godmother. Now, where’s my Prince Charming?
Okay, this is probably the coolest room I’ve EVER seen. It has a boat in the ceiling, a rope bridge, and an amazing paint job. What more could a kid want?
Sleeping in this room would feel like you were on the Oregon Trail. And when you have sleepovers, you could make your friend have malaria before going fishing and trading with randos.
Another boat! But this one is all fancy-like and you could sing “I’m On A Boat” every night before you went to bed.
Think about how many knights in shining armor you could have in this medieval room.
It’s a jungle in here! Literally…
It doesn’t even matter what the rest of the room looks like (spoiler alert: there’s a giraffe). There’s an elephant coming out of the wall.
So this one’s a little underwhelming compared to some of the others, but it’s a doll house! You could actually live in a dollhouse. And if you played with dolls in a dollhouse in your dollhouse room, it gets all meta-dollhouse.
Want to be a star? This diva room will DEFINITELY get you there.
So much Disney. So much princess. So much wonderful.
Your bed is a dinosaur. The end.
You don’t even have to wear a hard hat in this construction zone. This is such a badass room.
I don’t even like chess but I still love this room.
Yay castles! You would always be the king or queen of this room (your parents – aka serfs – wouldn’t even be able to tell you to clean up).
Swimming among the sharks? How about sleeping among the sharks? That’s more like it!
(Plus, my brother’s name is Asher, so that’s just extra cool).
I don’t know why Monica and Rachel didn’t just keep the racecar bed in Friends… look how cool their room could have been!
In this room, you could always feel like you were in Alice’s Wonderland or Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream.
(This post was way cheesier than I meant it to be… oh well.)
