Music Themed Room Ideas: Since the beginning of time, music has been used and perceived as an expression of emotions. Not only can you express your emotions through it but you can also depict your personality through a music-inspired room décor.
Having said that, today we are going to go through music-themed room ideas for both boys and girls of all ages. But before that, there are five things you should consider for having a cool music-themed room.
Five Important Things to Consider for DIY Music-Themed Room Décor
- Music decor for walls
Adding a unique décor element on the wall such as the guitar abstract wall art décor above can instantly depict your passion or hobby. You can choose a music-themed painting or wall stickers of your favourite musical instrument or hang a picture of your favourite artist to reflect your unique tastes.
The lighting in your room should reflect your taste in music. You could add a disco ball, or use fairy lights or RGB lights to change the vibe of your room. We recommend you use RGB lights, that way you can change colour as per your mood.
- Room Accessories and Furniture
Accessorizing your room with music-themed furniture can give your room a whole new look. Just like this comfortable piano-shaped sofa which can go with any colour scheme in your room.
- Colour Scheme for Wall, Trims and Accents
For a music-themed room, you are not limited to choosing a specific colour. You can use Color Space Ready to Use paint to paint your room in red, blue, pink or neutral. However, we recommend keeping the colours neutral so that whatever props and lighting you add, stand out. Or you can paint an accent wall a different colour than the rest.
- Music Themed Keepsakes
Your music-themed room is a perfect place to keep your first Walkman, CD player or radio. You can also frame tickets to your best concerts on the wall as a memory. Obviously not to forget to have a picture wall with your favourite artists.
Design the Music Room for a Small Space
Music themes for small rooms can be confusing but definitely not impossible. I really love this idea of using a built-in wardrobe in the living room to store your guitars so you can just pick them up when you want and jam on your sofa.
Ideas like these allow you to have a music room without ruining the overall aesthetics of your home.
Music Themed Room Ideas for Girls
Because ladies first, let’s start off with our inspirations for a music-themed room for girls.
1. Pink and Dainty
Using subtle colours like powder blue walls and neutral-coloured ceilings, like the picture above, is a good teenage music bedroom idea. Moreover, the pink Star sign stands out on the light walls. You can pair it with a vibrant bedsheet and accessorize it with musical instrument-shaped or printed cushions to complete the look.
2. Taylor Swift Inspired
On the contrary, this room has dark walls with minimal lighting, yet Taylor Swift’s posters on the wall and a quote from her songs depict your love for pop songs.
The cassette player on the shelf, old music album posters and the vinyl disc player on the wall give this music-themed bedroom a quite retro look.
4. Homey Loft
This simple brick wall room with a hint of pink is quite easy to recreate. Obviously, one can easily tell you have great taste in music by seeing Bob Marley and The Beatles poster up on your wall. And by adding musical instruments that you play, you can instantly let your visitors know that you are a musician yourself.
5. Weathered Vintage
Considering the simple neutral theme going on in the room, this decor can go for both genders. However, what makes this room feminine are the grey ribbons on the electric guitar, wrapped gifts on the carpet and the fur bean bag. Moreover, the rustic illuminated Rock Star sign gives the room a weathered vintage look.
6. Country Music Themed Room
Everything in this room screams country music, the Texas wooden map, the cow skull décor and of course the guitar. Moreover, the wall photos, the pink fur piano chair and the pastel blue sofa give this room a feminine touch.
7. Vinyl Wall
Vinyl records can double as a décor item. You create a beautiful vinyl wall filled with albums from your favourite artists and set up a player and speakers right below the décor to listen to the music.
8. Metal Accents
Use metal accents as wall décor against a solid wall colour as shown in the picture above. For an added effect place your musical instrument right next to your study or work table.
9. Aspiring Singer
If you are an aspiring artist, this simple powder pink and blue room colour scheme is perfect to set up your piano and mic to practice your vocals.
10. DIY Music Room Divider
Now you can diy your own music room divider made out of vinyl records. Just join them all up with a fish line and hook them to the ceiling.
Music Themed Room Ideas for Boys
11. Classic Boys Room
There are several tiny elements that make this bedroom the best. The guitar-playing lamp, electric guitars on walls as décor, cassette player and vinyl records on shelves and memorabilia on the side wall.
12. Sporty Teen
The Mickey Mouse lamp on the side table indicates the boy’s age, and if you look closely, the white and blue striped sports shoes and the electric guitar, right next to the bed indicate his interests quite evidently.
Moreover, there are soccer balls in the basket at the rear corner and a guitar used as a wall décor with a white and blue colour scheme going on, making it an ideal music-themed room for a sporty teen.
The Galaxy lighting in your music rendering room can stimulate your mind and provide a relaxing atmosphere to create new tunes.
14. Subtle Yet Elegant
Without overdoing much, you can transform any interior into a subtle music-themed room by adding unique décor elements such as the violin in the image above.
15. Kids Music Room
If your little kid is passionate about music, how about you make him a kids’ music room? With his toys lying around and musical instrument wall decals and a light blue colour scheme, your child will surely thank you for an amazing décor.
16. Black Leather Couch
A black leather couch is a staple in any boy’s music-themed room. This L-shaped couch provides ample space for your entire boy band to sit and jam all night long.
17. Music Composer Dream
This small studio with electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards and keytars, piano, drum set and electric basses is any music composer’s dream room.
18. Amps & Speakers
If you are fond of listening to music, you can match your amplifiers and speakers to the colour of the furniture so that it does not hinder the aesthetics of your personal space.
19. Sound-proofed Basement
A basement is a great place to transform it into a soundproof music room. Being already underground, it helps a lot to muffle some of the noise and if you soundproof the walls as well, you can keep your neighbours happy always.
20. Punk Room
For a punk-rock-inspired room, you do not need anything other than posters for music-themed room décor. The posters become wall your wallpaper and most importantly you do not need to be organized about it. Just stick them one overlapping another for the punk look.
Unisex Music-Themed Room
21. Warm & Brown
The neutral warm walls paired with the solid wood furniture along with the minimalistic music-themed wall décor is perfect regardless the gender, age or taste.
22. More is Less
In terms of décor, there is a lot going on in this room. For instance, look at the side lamp, the bulldog has headphones on. Cool isn’t it? Moreover, three different guitars on display and music-themed wired artwork on walls with vinyl discs as their borders indicate your strong affiliation with music.
The minimalistic room with an indoor plant and green neon lights glistening over the classic vinyl record player, speakers and headphones is best to set up a relaxing environment for a musical night.
24. Black & White Music Themed Bedroom
Another great music room idea is to have a chalkboard wall to pan down your tunes. Not only you can use the wall to unleash your creativity but also use it as décor. You can draw instruments or jot down your favourite quote from the song for a personalized music room.
25. Old Drum in a Music Themed Living Room
If you are a drummer and have an old drum laying around, transform it into a coffee table for a cool music-themed living room.
26. Jamming Session
Turn a large space in your home into a jamming lounge by having enough couches, chairs and bean bags for your friends and family and your choice of musical instruments, speakers and mic.
Vintage never goes out of fashion. If you have old gramophone and vinyl records, use them as a music-themed room decor.
28. Light and Airy
Create a personalized music room in a light and airy space to comfortably hone your skills or teach other people.
29. Grand Piano
A grand piano is an expensive instrument and placing it in a multi-purpose space such as a formal living room is a great music-themed room idea.
30. At-Home Performance
You can diy a stage in your room to practise your performances. You do not need to go extravagant, just a simple seating in the centre over a wooden platform or rug would do.
Of course you don’t really need a proper stage, just set up a corner of the room with speakers and all to get the vibe or use a rug instead of a stage to mark out the area – it will have the same effect (pretty much). These are also great ideas to set up a Karaoke room in your home.
