Teenage Boys Bedroom – When boys grow up, so does their taste in style and decor. These days a teenage boy bedroom is more then just a place to study and sleep, they need space of their own to relax and hang out with friends. So if you are looking for bedroom ideas for teenage boys, we will show you how to start. Don’t forget, this will be a great project to do and get involved in together with your son.

Color

Your son will no doubt have a favourite color, or have some idea of what color he would like to use in his room. Boys often choose dark colors, like blues, browns and black as their favourite color. If the bedroom is small, you might want to use a light color as the dominant color in the room, and use dark colors as secondary and accent color to make the room look bigger.

60-30-10 Rule

When you choose colors, try to stick to the 60-30-10 rule to keep the room balanced and not too overwhelming with color. This is how the 60-30-10 rule works:

  • 60% – dominant color in the room
  • 30% – secondary color in the room
  • 10% – accent color in the room

Themes

There are plenty of themes that will suit a teenage boy without looking childish. To choose a theme, search the internet together with your son for some ideas, or just think about his hobbies, sports, patterns or scenes that suit his taste.

Some popular teenage boys bedroom themes are:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Surfing
  • Modern and contemporary
  • Army
  • Nature
  • Art
  • Science
  • Cars
  • Music

Pay attention to detail

Wallpaper is a great tool to create a feature wall in a room, whether you choose a wallpaper with a pattern or a theme. The options in wallpaper are endless, and will make a real statement in your sons room. We love this funky wallpaper.

Create your own art by using your sons drawing or painting to frame and hang on the wall, or paint his name in graffiti letters on the wall.Alternative to making your own art, you could buy wall stickers in graffiti print or sports themes to decorate your sons bedroom walls. Wall sticker are easy to apply and won’t damage the wall when you remove them.

Storage is one thing you can never have enough of, especially for a growing teenage boy. Lockers are a great storage solutions and will fit with almost any teenage boy bedroom design. Aluminium storage boxes are another way to add a muscular feel to a room, and at the same time creating more storage space.

Hang it, and make it part of the decor, surfboards, guitars and skateboards are great examples to hang on the wall. Not only will it look great, but if will get rid of some of the clutter on the floor as well. As you can see, with a little bit of imagination and creativity you can create a bedroom for your teenage boy that he will love. We hope that these bedroom ideas for teenage boys inspired you and your son to have fun decorating his room.

Teen Girl Room – My daughter is looking for a fresh idea for her teen room. Do you have any bedroom theme ideas for a teen girl room?. Yes, creating a bedroom theme for a teen girl is simply a more mature take on her interests and personality.

For instance if your daughter loves flowers consider a daisy theme, if she loves bold vibrant colors consider a retro ‘flower power’ look, if she loves the ocean consider a seaside room, if she dreams of visiting Paris someday what about French Inspired teen room?. Failing the above what about suggesting she use a favorite color as the basis of her bedroom theme?

Following are some of my favorite bedroom theme ideas for teen girl rooms:

If your teen is crazy about daisies why not create a fun flower room? Decide on a basic wall color and then select one wall as your focal point and create a big daisy mural (copy a picture to a transparency, use an overhead projector and trace the outline) or purchase a ready-made one. Display the tops of artificial daisies (affix with reusable tac) or paint on smaller groupings of daisies on the remaining walls to bring the look of her teen room together. Other ideas for this bedroom theme include using a decorative border or reusable wall stickers, daisy print bedding with co-ordinating window treatments and a tall vase of artificial daisies in a corner.

Flower Power

For a cool retro look think bright oranges, sunny yellows, lime greens, and watermelon pinks. Look for vibrant wall borders and fabrics with simple flower shapes. Match teen girl room colors up with solid colored bedding and window treatments. Use flower prints again on throw cushions and in an area rug. Go one step further and trace some of the flower shapes from the border or fabric and create random floral patterns on your teen’s wall and then paint to match the colors elsewhere in her teen room. Or you could display the tops of some bright and colorful flowers in simple frames and use to bring her bedroom theme together.

French Inspired

A teen girl may also enjoy a French inspired room featuring black and white checks and vintage looking accessories set against a pink backdrop. Be sure to include some French posters and framed photos.

Favorite Color

If your teen has a favorite color, consider using various shades of it around her teen room. Paint the walls in her favorite color then use a coordinating border and fabric in a different shade. The key is to use various patterns and textures in the same color to bring her bedroom theme together. My own teenage daughter recently changed the color of her teen room from yellow to shades of purple (lavender and violet) and used some hot pink accessories like throw pillows, a lamp, a window topper, storage boxes etc.

to provide a little contrast. Also by using hot pink as an accent color on her bed and in the accessories on the shelf behind her headboard she created a welcoming focal point when you enter her teen girl room.
