If you are a fan of Japanese anime, you know there is nothing better than being surrounded by your favorite characters and TV shows to immerse yourself in the fictional world!
One way to do this is to create an anime bedroom that shows the otaku in you! There are endless ways to incorporate your passion into your personal space, from bold wall art and bedding featuring your favorite characters to desk accessories and storage solutions that showcase your love of anime.
There’s an anime-inspired bedroom design idea for everyone, whether you like classic series like Naruto and Dragon Ball Z or more recent hits like Attack on Titan or Chainsaw Man. Check these out to find your vibe!
For The Minimal Enthusiasts
Anime spaces are normally maximalist but then when you love minimalism AND anime, why not change the norm?
Keep a neutral color palette that evokes calmness, like white, greys, and light blues. And showcase your modern décor, with a few statement pieces with large wall art, plush toy, or framed anime art of your favorite anime or characters. Avoid filling the room with small trinkets, to keep the subtle touch intact.
Show off your love for gaming and anime! This could include gaming-themed wall art, posters featuring your favorite anime characters, and a gaming furniture setup. Add anime desk accessories like small figures or display screens for the ultimate anime aesthetic!
In terms of color scheme, use bold primary colors, for a playful and energetic vibe, keep lighting also in mind and use wall panels to add to the aesthetic!
Go Kawaii. Go Anime.
The cutest kawaii bedroom has a lot of plushies, pastel throws for your bedding, anime scrolls for your wall, and a room wrapped in pastel colors like pink, purple and blue.
Make your anime bedroom cute and kawaii by adding a few kawaii decors beside all your anime posters, decor, and figurines. Add a cloud wallpaper to top it off.
Good Ol’ Retro Anime Room
If you’ve grown up watching cowboy bebop, neon genesis Evangelion, and berserk the classics, this one is for you!
For your walls, you can pick colors that are reminiscent of the 80s and 90s, like neon pink, electric blue, and lime green with a dash of yellow. Hanging scrolls of your favorite retro anime on your walls works best, or you could also get vintage posters.
For The Manga Readers!
Bring in the warm fuzzy feeling back by making your anime room a cozy niche for reading. Do this by adding a comfortable chair or a bean bag and having a nice display unit for your manga!
With some soft ambient lighting, you are good to go. You can also use Japanese-inspired elements in your room, such as a futon or tatami mats, to create a sense of authenticity. Simplicity is key.
Best Of Both Worlds!
If you are stuck between choosing reality and fiction, don’t be afraid to go for the crossover between them both. Pick a versatile color like black, white, or shades of grey, with a pop of color!
You can use some of the commonly available anime room decor and film merchandise. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different styles and elements to create a space that is uniquely yours.
Get The Trendy Anime Wall
We have all seen the manga wall, that has been getting popular on Instagram and TikTok, and we are here for it!
It’s very doable, all you need are your favorite anime’s manga panels (preferably of scenes/dialogues you like) that you can print and an empty wall. Stick them to the wall and you have the perfect anime wallpaper!!
Make It Vivid Neon
Neon lights add the perfect proportion of modern and a baddie flair to your bedroom. To create a nice touch of whimsy anime vibes in your room, use neon lights to highlight your décor. You can also create a soft vibe using neon lights by creating shapes of clouds or stars for the perfect anime room design aesthetic!
Why No Plants?
If you are a plant mom, you should definitely get your hands on some anime-themed planters! And in case you love Ghibli movies, this is a great addition to your bedroom or as a small desktop plant.
Dark Anime Bedroom
Your collectibles can really pop in a dark room, with some good lighting. And if you have a black and white themed room with manga art on the wall, it would make a great contrast.
The key is to stay on the anime-themed interior, while you play around with monochromatic colors!
Don’t Forget That Projector!
An anime room with a projector works best if you want an aesthetic getaway to the fictional world of your choice!
All you need is a projector and an empty wall where you simply play the anime scenes to create a very comforting and ambient vibe. For the anime aesthetic, just add some of your favorite anime bedroom decor! (besides the projector, of course!)
More Is More
If you want your room to give off the ultimate anime fan vibe, go for a maximalist anime room idea exactly like this one, where you can explore your creativity and absolutely go wack!
Make sure you have enough storage space to keep your room from looking too messy or don’t blame me.
A Plushy Or A Bed?
If you love collecting plushies, make sure you have a dedicated spot for them apart from your bed. Or you can use them as throws and also display them on shelves.
Use your larger plushies as wall hangings by attaching them to your wall with pushpins or Velcro. This is a fun and creative way to add some character to your walls. Or just in case you don’t know what to do with a big plushie such as this one, sleep on it.
Try Classic Anime Room Design
You can never get over the classics! I’m talking about masterpieces like AOT, full metal alchemist, HxH, Bleach and so many more! You can find a lot of themed anime décor that you can use. Use bold vibrant colors that you can highlight through your walls, bedding, and décor.
Plush Anime Theme Bedding
These are so kawaii!! Looking at this you know that the nap will just hit differently. All you need is a cute pastel bedding cover or throws, anything you can find to add some soft vibe to your room.
To make things more interesting you can add Chibi figurines of anime characters you like by the bedside, and decorate your room with neon-shaped clouds! The possibilities are endless.
If You’re An Anime Film Enthusiast
Anime films like spirited away, Your Name have never failed us in giving us that feeling of warmth and comfort. If you want your room to radiate the same, try to bring in the same anime aesthetic by using the same colors, and posters they relate to. You can even draw inspiration from the classic Japanese bedroom design.
Cyberpunk Anime Bedroom
If you’re a big fan of Akira, (I highly recommend this!) cyberpunk anime often features dark, moody colors, such as deep reds, greens, and purples!
Futuristic lights, black and neon lamps, and sleek lighting fixtures can also be a great way to add a cyberpunk feel to the room, to add some personal touch you can display your anime collectibles.
Girls, Try Floral
Sakura, and we all know it is highly romanticized in the animes (as it should be!) is one of the most popular themes in japan. You can highlight a wall with stickers or get sakura flowers and use them as a décor element. Have your own slice-of-life anime moment.
If your haikyuu fever hasn’t worn off yet, it is not too late to use this style to get the quirkiest sporty-styled bedroom! You can have a volleyball-shaped bean bag or hang a basketball hoop wastebasket on your wall.
Display Your Figurine Collection
A good anime collection can be a great flex! You can install display shelves with led lighting to showcase your figurine collection. If you have smaller figurines you can have a desk with a glass top to keep your figures under them! There are a lot of ways to do this, find your inspiration and most importantly stay creative!
For A Small Anime Bedroom
The most popular anime colors are pink, purple, blue, and green.
You can feature these colors in your bedroom to create a nice energetic vibe! In a small room, it’s important to make the most of the wall space you have. You can use floating shelves or a hanging wall organizer to display your anime figure collection or store your favorite manga all while freeing up your floor space.
