Score A Home Alone-Inspired Bedroom With These 4 Must-Haves
Your little boy deserves one as cool as Buzz’s!
If you grew up in the 90s, it's safe to say that you've seen Home Alone. This Christmas classic is a favorite of so many people and it's not surprising why! It's funny, heartwarming, and is perfect as a family bonding movie, too.
Those who've watched it for a couple of times can't miss that bit when Kevin McAllister becomes free to look through his siblings’ things and makes a beeline for the room that was a hundred percent off-limits: Buzz’s Bedroom.

It's your typical boy's bedroom that's filled with an assortment of odd things like Dracula figures, junk food, and even a live tarantula. However, if you pay attention and look past the mess, you’ll find that the room had great stuff and a few smart design ideas, too!
We’ve rounded up some of our favorites that you can incorporate in your kids’ bedroom:

Boys will be boys and part of that means being open to mess. Instead of choosing light-colored bed covers, you can consider something in gray so dirt and mild stains won't be easily noticeable. Since it's also a neutral color, it will go with whatever color scheme you choose for the rest of the room.

Who can forget that scene when Kevin ransacked Buzz's private storage chest? Every kid has one of these–the kind that was meant to be storage but ended up being a secret hiding place for toys and collectibles. Your little boy can do the same with this neon-colored box so his robots and cars are always within reach.

Buzz had all sorts of knickknacks around his room. It was a mixture of what looks like memorabilia from Dad, sports figures, and a lot of army men.
These little details add character more than we think and a couple of these mini penguins will not only bring personality to the space, it can double as toys, too!

Everyone needs shelves like Buzz's and style it in what we can only describe as "organized clutter." If you don't have built-in shelves, a storage set will work just fine. Use the space to display your kids' proudest achievements, mementos, or whatever he is interested in—think of it as a real-life mood board, something you can look at and can inspire your kids to work hard.
