Decorate Your Home with LEGO® DOTS

How to Decorate Your Home with LEGO® DOTS™

Kids love expressing themselves. All you have to do is walk into any youngster’s room, and you’ll know exactly who they are, based on their drawings, their toys, their posters and so on (and so on). 

You might even say that as we grow older, we’re guilty of losing focus on personality through our decorations. 


This article is here to help both youngsters get inspired to customize their rooms as never before with our kids DIY home décor DOTS sets... while also hopefully helping you grown-ups rediscover that creative itch and bring back your personalities with our LEGO DOTS home décor sets. 

So let’s have a look at some DOTS home decoration tips!

Tip 1: Pick your canvas

Before we get into the millions of things you and your kids can make using LEGO DOTS home décor, we need to know where your masterpieces will lie. 

For those who don’t know, LEGO DOTS isn’t really about building instructions. We’re much more into blank canvases. 

And our very blankest of canvases are our baseplates, which are the simplest (but very effective) way for kids and grown-ups alike to express their creativity, passion and personality through DOTS home décor. 

Our plain baseplates come in various shapes and sizes, as in our Creative Designer Box (41938) which contains cute cloud-shaped baseplates that can even hold photos! Or if you’d like something more complex and open-ended, our Green, Blue, White and Gray Baseplates can be easily popped into a picture frame and hung on a wall.

Speaking of, a great way to add a splash of fun to any mantlepiece is with DOTS picture frames, like our DOTS Mini Frame (30556) and in the Multipack Summer Vibes (41937) set. These are especially great as a kids DIY home décor activity, as the emphasis is squarely on fun!

Tip: 2 Find your passion

With unlimited possibilities, it can be difficult to decide what to pick… 

A safe bet is making something that means something to you. The average kid reading this will now have about 3 billion ideas, from their favorite superhero to their favorite ice cream (maybe combined...?).

Otherwise, think back to happy periods in your life and find something that reminds you of it. It doesn’t have to be obvious: for example, if you want to remember a great family skiing holiday, you might make a steaming cup of cocoa you enjoyed. 

Plus, as you explain your creation to guests, you’ll have made yourself a very beautiful conversation starter…

Tip 3: Home from home

One thing we love about DOTS is their ability to make charming tributes to wherever you call home, by reproducing your country’s flag and a famous icon. Needless to say, making and displaying these designs are a great way to introduce kids to the different cultures of our world. 

Check out these inspirational designs we’ve curated to get an idea of how you can customize your room AND celebrate your homeland in one fell swoop.

We especially loved this interpretation of the devilishly detailed Spanish flag!

Tip 4: Use the room 

So yes, we’re saying you and your kids can customize your room with our LEGO DOTS home décor sets… but what room are we talking about here exactly? 

If you have an office space, do you want things to be efficient, with little-to-no decoration… or do you want something bright and fun to keep you happy while you work, like our Cute Banana Pen Holder (41948)?

One idea we love is bringing DOTS into the kitchen. Because can you be a true foodie if you don’t have homages to your family favorite meal hanging from your wall?

Don’t forget that DOTS aren’t just for pretty patterns – they can be used to spell out anything you want them to!

Tip 5: Switch it up 

The beauty of having adults and kids DIY home décor from LEGO DOTS, is that you can change it as many times as you like. 

Let’s say the seasons are changing. Your home décor has been full of the deep blues and dark emeralds of winter, but now you want to see in the spring with pastel colors of bloom—lavender purple, buttercup yellow, orange… orange...

Only with LEGO home décor can you take down your wall art and make it into something that better matches your mood, your state-of-mind, your… dare we say it… vibe?

So never be afraid to look at something you spent ages making… and completely change it.
