Soccer is one of the most popular sports globally, and for some, the love of the game infiltrates other areas of their life. One of the best ways to show your passion for the beautiful game is through interior design.
1. Make the television center stage
Soccer fans are often glued to the television year-round! Even when the domestic season comes to a close, there are international matches to think about, friendlies, and, if you’re truly dedicated to the sport, you might even watch games from different parts of the world. All of this requires a television with a depth of color, excellent sound, and a prominent position. Ensure that the television is surrounded by ample comfortable seating (soccer is best enjoyed as part of a group of like-minded friends!) and then just sit back and soak up the matchday atmosphere.
2. Commemorate your favorite players
Regardless of the team you support, you’re bound to have a set of favorite players. These might be top goalscorers, dogged defenders of wily midfielders, but commemorating them in your home is a great touch. For example, if you’re a fan of Lazio, you might frame and hang some pictures of club legends. Soccer is a sport notorious for near-endless change, but by immortalizing squad legends, you’ll always be able to keep in touch with club heritage. Along with the players, club flags, pictures of the stadium, and even signed shirts all make excellent additions to a soccer-themed home.
3. Showcase your own achievements
If you play the sport yourself, don’t be shy! Displaying trophies and medals is a great way to make a home feel like home, remind yourself of your sporting past and give your space an even more athletic appearance. Shelves are easy and cheap to install, and positioning them near to posters and flags creates a kind of “soccer corner” that feels separate from the rest of the home. You can go even further, of course, and opt for a full-scale trophy cabinet. These look great in lounge areas and are real conversation starters amongst like-minded fans.
4. Get quirky
There are plenty of quirky soccer decorations available for your home. These range from novelty items like pitch-style rugs and bed covers to more outlandish creations like football-shaped beanbags and even wallpaper styled to show a soccer stadium! Of course, not all of these will suit every room, but running a quick search for soccer decorations certainly turns up some eclectic results. You can keep things more unassuming, of course, with tabletop soccer or even soccer-themed beer glasses.
5. Wall art is your friend
Wall art has always been one of the easiest ways to bring a splash of personality to your living space. There’s an abundance of readily available soccer wall art to suit every taste, including prints of players, famous moments, and more general creations like stadiums. Minimalistic prints bring sophistication as well as personalization, so they’ll suit even the most modern decors.
