Apartment Decorating Ideas for Sports Teams

According to Home Stratosphere, one of the most popular ways to decorate a man cave is sports memorabilia, but that theme is also a great idea for a sports fan who wants to get creative when decorating their apartment too, male or female.

No matter what your gender, these are just a few ideas for making good use of that memorabilia while making your space enjoyable to come home to.

Paint the Walls in Your Team’s Colors

If you have the option to paint the interior of your apartment, it’s a great way to immediately set the mood of a room, revealing your inner team spirit. But don’t go overboard, for the most attractive look, repaint one room in your team’s colors rather than the entire interior.

Hang up Team Clothing

Odds are, you probably have quite a bit of clothing with your team’s logo. From hats to jerseys and t-shirts, these items can make for great sports-themed d├ęcor. An extra-special jersey with your favorite player’s name on it is ideal for having professionally framed and hung on the wall. If you have more than one, group them together on a wall, or hang one up in each room. If you display them together, use the same style of frame for each to create a more unified look.

Gallery Wall

If you don’t have any jerseys you can hang, gather together photographs to create a gallery wall. You could use photos of yourself with friends and family at the game, photos of your favorite players, posters and fliers. Old photos, found in sports memorabilia shops, on eBay, at garage sales or estate sales, can make for an especially attractive vintage look, particularly when combined with vintage posters.


Pillows are an inexpensive, easy way to decorate your apartment and help pull together the entire theme of a room. You can use pillows in solid colors that match the walls, or search for fun pillows with your team’s logo. For example, if Michigan Wolverines fan and your walls are beige or white, block M pillows or maize and blue pillows look great.


Simply pinning pennants up on the wall is going to make your apartment look more like a dorm room, but there are ways to use them to create more of an adult sports-themed interior. Try framing them separately, or grouping them into a larger frame, arranging them into a pattern.

Giant Rugs

The walls aren’t the only thing you can decorate, you can use giant rugs with your team’s logo on the floors. There are sports rugs for just about every team imaginable, from baseball, hockey and football to soccer and basketball, college and pro.
