Design Ideas for a Teen Bedroom

    Color Choices

    • Possible color choices for teens often include dramatic contrasts such as black and white; neon colors; red, white and blue; or black and red. One compromise is painting only one wall a shocking color, or painting the bottom half of room a darker color and leaving the top neutral. If you cannot paint the walls, add the colors the teen enjoys through the bedding choices, curtains and accessories.


    • Incorporate necessary storage into the decor of a teen's bedroom. Set up a wall of lockers to hold clothes, school supplies, sporting equipment or a stereo system. Stack white, open-front cubes, or hang them randomly on the wall to hold small items, books or CD's. Install a high shelf around the room approximately a foot from the ceiling to hold a collection of trophies or stuffed animals, for example.

    Furniture Updates

    • Change the furniture without spending a lot of money. Apply a coat of paint to childhood pieces to update the style. Use chalkboard paint on a dresser to create a graffiti-ready piece of furniture. Add inexpensive pieces, such as bean bag chairs, a futon, papasan chair or hammock.


    • Stencil words on the wall. Choose song lyrics, a poem or a favorite quote. Hang extra large fiberboard letters in different styles to spell out their name along the wall in ransom note style. Apply corkboard tiles to a wall for an ever-changing display of notes and pictures. Use old sports T-shirts to create a quilt or curtains for the room.
