Pleasing teenagers is not an easy task at the best of times, so decorating their bedrooms can be challenging. Provide the basic essentials which is a bed, a desk, and storage, yet go that one step further and turn their room into their pad!! Taking into account their personality and their passions, here are some great decorating ideas that are sure to please your teenager.
A super cool teenage boys room with the use of a photographic mural of an exotic beach, blended with some rustic weather beaten furniture. Needless to say that the essential bed and desk is provided.
Here is an idea for a teenage girl, focus on her favourite colour and paint the walls, if she gets sick of it just repaint. The paper lanterns look great hung at different levels to add interest to the room. I love the fact that the bed functions as a day bed as well as a pull out spare bed for those teenage girl sleepovers.
Below is a themed Bob Marley teenage bedroom with the emphasis on music. Once again the use of a wall mural has added huge interest to the space, and because the mural is illustrated in muted greys, the colour scheme can go in any direction that you want it to. In this case the uniquely coloured bed spread coordinated with some brightly coloured cushions looks fresh and fantastic.
Below is a teenage girl's bedroom that has been themed on her love for Paris. There are many super cute wallpaper options available, just be careful with your choice as its not so easy to change. Another clever design element is the monochrome use of black and white, meaning that the pink accent colour can be simply swapped for another colour if so desired.
Below we have a teenage boys room that has a surfer theme. It is very tastefully coordinated with brown, white and hints of orange. The use of an old surf board adds character to the bedroom. My favourite feature is the functional bookshelves that flank the bed on either side, providing much needed storage and creating a custom made feeling.
This teenage girl's bedroom also has a custom made feel because of the cabinetry that has been built around the bed head. This cabinetry is not only a smart storage solution, but it looks great, and gives it a cosy hideaway feel. The wall colour is a smart neutral choice, allowing the colour scheme to be simply altered by changing the quilt. Another feature to be noted is that the bed has inbuilt drawers, another great storage solution and smart use of a small space.
Below we have more of a tween boy's room, themed on his favourite sport, soccer. It is a very simple yet cleverly decorated, by hanging some soccer balls from the ceiling and making a personalised notice board. The trick is this bedroom can change as the boy grows.
Such a cool bedroom for a teenage girl!! She doesn't have a lot of space yet it oozes with her personality, and it is inexpensive to create. Once again a neutral paint colour has been used, and she has decorated her walls with her own home made collage of photos. Other posters that flank the walls are cleverly arranged, with the accent colours of pink, black and green being repeated throughout the space. Last but not least is the lighting, a strand of plain Christmas lights hung around the room is the icing on the cake. A magical and very cool bedroom for a teenage girl to hang out in.
