Futuristic-looking furniture can also be used in this themed bedroom.
Children with space-themed bedrooms will often have toys, such as rocket ships and astronaut action figures, that can add to the décor. Instead of hiding these toys away in a toy box, they can be displayed on shelves. A telescope placed next to the window will often be the final touch to a space-themed bedroom.
