How to Create a Dinosaur Themed Bedroom

Only when you are a child can fantasies come true, and there’s no more fascinating subject than Dinosaurs. At some point in every kid’s life, they will experience an intense interest in Dinosaurs, during this period of time they typically live, breathe and sleep Dinosaurs. Whether it’s the challenge of pronouncing the names of dinosaurs, an interest in dinosaur’s often gruesome habits or the intrigue of fossils and bones – dinosaurs offer a fantastic way for your child to learn about natural history and biology. If you are lucky, your child will carry their fascination with dinosaurs throughout their teenager years and into adulthood – which can be a fantastic asset in driving academic results.

At Children’s Rooms, we stock and supply an incredibly wide range of Dinosaur Bedroom products, including a wide range of bedding and bedroom accessories. The aim of this collection is to inspire your child, whilst providing you with a cost effective number of products which allow you to either fully theme a bedroom, or simply accessorise it. Below, we will run through some of our most popular products in our Dinosaur range.

Dinosaur Bedding

The obvious starting point when theming a bedroom, our dinosaur themed bedding ranges are incredibly popular with boys and girls of all ages. The biggest distinction within this range is the split between ‘friendly’ and ‘real’ dinosaurs. Bedding within this range is either themed with friendly dinosaur characters, or frankly terrifying dinosaurs complete with rows and rows of razor sharp teeth.

One of the bestselling duvets within the range is the T-Rex duvet, which is available in single, double and king size.

It’s all about the Superhero’s

We like to keep up with the latest trends here at CRHQ and with the new Superman film recently released we’ve tried our hardest (well our head buyers Kev and Dave did) to source up to date and relevant products to be ‘bang on trend’ as my teenagers tell me is the phrase I should use(?)

The material is 100% microfibre which means they are durable and can be machine washed and of course the most famous spider in the world is heavily featured both swinging through the dark city using his super strength web and on his powerful Spiderman - City Curtainsmotorbike which you can almost hear roaring the graphics are that good. The words ‘thwipp’ and ‘the ultimate spiderman’ appear on both the pillowcase and the bottom of the duvet cover. The co-ordinating curtains again are all about the web throwing with Spiderman in various poses against a web covered blue background and the same wording as on the duvet covers. The fleece blanket measures 120 x 150 cms and is lovely and soft and has the ultimate superhero in a single, large image this is made from 100% polyester and like most of our range can easily be maintained to keep it looking great.

When she’s not quite teenager and yet too old for character bedding, what do you do? She doesn’t particularly want the pale pink with flowers and cuteness yet isn’t readyOne Direction Bed Set for One Direction or The Avengers what is the other choice? Maybe you have a budding celebrity or future star under your roof?

Made from a stunning, shiny polyester pink fabric and with stars in various colours including yellow, lilac and purple and ‘Superstar’ ‘Talented’ ‘Famous’ and ‘Celebrity’ The Avengers Beddingembroidered over them and  with the odd sequin dotted here and there for added star effect.
