There are plenty of girls who like to participate in extreme sports, such as skateboarding. However, the home furnishings industry is still a little behind the times, and most skateboarding bedroom décor is marketed towards boy skateboard enthusiasts.
Some skater girls are very serious and focus on their skating skills, while others are more playful and enjoy having fun with the community. Some skater girls are very competitive, while others are more laid back and just enjoy skating in the skatepark. There is no one right way to be a skater or design a skater girl’s room, and everyone should have their own unique skater personality and aesthetic.
Skater Room Design
When designing a skater room, it is important to consider the size and layout of the space, as well as the functional needs of the room. It is also important to consider the budget and your own personal style, popular skater girl room styles include indie, grunge and vintage aesthetics.
First and foremost, the skater girl’s room should be designed to be comfortable and inviting. It should be decorated with soft colors, comfortable furniture, and artwork that reflects the skater’s personality and interests. Additionally, a skater girl’s room should be organized and efficient, with all of her belongings easily accessible and zoned.
If your home is big like that of the skateboarding stars, with a ton of concrete you can change your skater room into an indoor skate park with smooth and hard surfaces to move around in. Continuous concrete mounds and ramps can make each space skateable as the ground becomes the wall then the ceiling on a continuous surface. If your home is small, you can still go vertical with your decoration and skateboard/helmet storage and display.
Skater Girl Bedroom Furniture
If you are looking for a cozy and stylish skater girl aesthetic bedroom, you can create one with a few key pieces of furniture and accessories.
- A comfortable sleeping place – it can be a bunkbed to save space, a normal bed frame with skater themed bedding, or a mattress on floor.
- Plenty of storage for gear – you can store the skateboards and helmets in cabinet to keep them clean, or use open shelf and racks with LED lighting to display your collection as a part of the room decoration.
- A dedictated zone for study/work/gaming – it can be a proper desk or even a lap desk. Make sure to decorate the wall behind you if you will be streaming.
Skater Girl Room Colors
The best color scheme for a skater girl room will depend on the individual skater’s personal taste and style. For added warmth, place a few pieces of brightly colored furniture, such as a pastel-colored rug or an artsy colorful chair. Another popular idea is to add some indoor plants to brighten up the room and create a natural atmosphere.
