Decorating a teenager’s bedroom can be tricky. Their design style changes as often as their shoe size. The key is to choose furniture pieces that will transition into adulthood and use easily swappable accessories, like artwork and soft furnishings to add age-appropriate touches. Looking for inspiration for your teen’s bedroom? Here are 10 stylish and age-appropriate rooms every teenager would love.
1. A Sophisticated Retreat
With a sophisticated mix of hushed hues and elegant furniture, this bedroom is ideal for a teenager on her way to college. The lilac bedspread and tufted sofa, as well as the custom drapery, keep the space feeling fresh and age-appropriate. However, the beautiful four-poster bed, side tables, and lamps will easily transition to adulthood.
2. Teenage Man Cave
The dark wood furniture, smoky colors, and luxe bedding in this room combine for a polished and mature look. However, the bunk beds and chrome accessories (toy-sized racecars and a propeller airplane) give the room its boyish charm.
To liven up this masculine space, substitute the gray walls and charcoal window treatments for light green or pale blue.
3. Pretty Feminine Layers
Layers of feminine pattern give this shared girls’ bedroom a fun and youthful feel. The soft pastel colors and subtle floral prints featured in the upholstered headboard, bedding and drapery help make the space feel airy and sophisticated.
4. Bright and Eclectic Artist Space
The aspiring artist will love this eclectic bedroom. Bright colors, patterned wallpaper, and funky artwork infuse the space with energy. However, understated elements like the custom roller shade and jute rug help keep the space grounded.
5. Sports Themed
Your athlete will feel right at home in this sports-themed room. The painted beadboard, custom window coverings, and industrial-style bedside table keep this room from feeling like an overdone sports bar. Peppering in lacrosse-specific accents and vintage sports paraphernalia, help complete this room’s sophisticated look.
6. Industrial Feature Wall
The industrial-style feature wall in this edgy teen room is striking. To keep the space from feeling too busy, the rest of the décor was kept understated. The light colored paint colors, carpeting, and designer roman shades offers the eye a much needed break from the striking feature wall and rich blue bedding.
7. Tween Princess
If your pre-teen still wants to be a princess, create a room that will easily transition from little girl to teenager. Invest in chic furniture and elegant drapery in a neutral color that may look sweet now, but feel polished over time.
In this room, an antique metal bedframe and mirrored dresser are the transitional pieces that accomplish this. Bedding and throw pillows in a cheery hue, such as magenta or tangerine, are a good fit for your little one, but can easily be traded in for linens in a more sophisticated color or pattern in the future.
8. Graphic and Modern
Large graphic prints and bold artwork make this room the perfect creative retreat for your budding musician. Contemporary furniture and sleek, minimalist window treatments give this space its grown-up feel, while the pops of soft yellow add a youthful touch.
9. Moody and Masculine
The moody color palette and neon sign give this space its laidback masculine edge. The black and white accents, pops of chartreuse and white custom wood shutters help energize the space, injecting it with color and brightness.
10. Well-Placed Color
Not all teen rooms need to be bursting with color. The bold carpet and complementary pendant lights enliven this mostly neutral space. Design elements, like the bright throw, lounge sofa and colorful accessories help keep this space youthful.
