rooms are always fun to decorate, simply because there are so many different
options.

You can use a particular type of music, a popular artist, or even
musical instruments as the overall design inspiration.

The guitar is an
extremely popular musical instrument which can serve as the focus for your
family music room’s decorating theme.


Deciding on a Specific Theme

Using
the guitar as the overall theme inspiration for your music room can provide
for many different decorating options. You could choose to focus on a
particular guitar artist, a specific type of guitar, or go with an overall
guitar theme.

One of the best ways of deciding on a theme is to think about
the interests and preferences of your family members. For example, if your
children have a favorite guitar artist, it can add a bit of personalization
to feature this artist in your music room.

Or, if you or another family
member actually plays the guitar, you might want to display your own musical
instruments, or use sheet music from favorite songs that you like displayed
as framed wall art.

If you happen to collect guitars, this can provide the
perfect way to use your collection in a decorative way. You might also want
to focus on a particular type of music, such as acoustic guitars used in
country music or electric guitars used by rock bands.

Gathering Your Decorating Supplies

If you
collect guitars or play the instrument, finding some decorating supplies
could be as easy as visiting your own closet.

The music room is the perfect
storage location for all musical instruments, including guitars. If you
actively play the instruments, display them in a way that provides you with
easy access. Guitars that are collected primary as display pieces can be
used as decorating accents anywhere in the room.

Other supplies to gather
include sheet music, album covers, LPs and singles of your favorite guitar
music, posters of your favorite guitar artists, concert ticket stubs, and
any other kinds of memorabilia that can you can utilize when decorating the
room.


Guitar Themed Decorating Ideas

If you
have an assortment of small items, such as a guitar pick collection or
concert ticket stubs, these could work well in a shadowbox frame.

Posters,
sheet music, album covers and the records themselves can be framed and used
as wall art.

Wall shelves can be a great solution for displaying actual
guitars, although you want to make sure they are deep enough to prevent the
instrument from falling and becoming damaged.


Or, simply prop a guitar
against the wall in the corner of the room for a casual musical decorating
touch.


If you play the guitar, keep your favorite instruments close to a
comfortable chair in the room, along with any music you frequently use, to
make it easy to enjoy playing.

If you like to get
together in the music room with friends who also play the guitar,
creating an impromptu stage or group seating arrangement can make
the room more enjoyable. A CD collection of your favorite guitar
music can add the final touc
h.
