How to decorate a teenage bedroom without falling out
Published 09/12/13



DECORATING a room for a teenager is probably one of the hardest jobs in the house to tackle — they’ll already have their own ideas that probably don’t correspond with your own. Think black walls with skull and crossbones. But it is important to work together so that you are both happy with the end result.

The room may have to cope with a transitional period as your youngster grapples with finding their own identity — but you also want it to reflect their personality a little bit.

As your child grows up, the old bedroom theme featuring kiddies’ elements will no longer work (no matter how much you might like it to!). Just like the teenager is growing up, their room should also reflect their changing demands and needs.

Besides reflecting the teen’s interest, a teen bedroom should also be functional for doing studies and homework, socialising with friends and for resting.

For girls a hot pink and cool grey combination creates a vibrant but balanced scheme that, despite its shocking slashes of colour, does not appear overpowering. The neutral walls mean that when they tire of the pink accent colour it can be changed without too much effort or expense.


Finding new ideas for a teen girl’s room is always fun but to go back to a whole different era is one that is exciting and rewarding.

Vintage style takes you back to a whole other period that allows you to experience the style of the Twenties to the Sixties which is today called retro style. Floral is another option for girls — think Cath Kidston.

For boys the popular colour palette includes mostly black, blue and brown, but there are some fresh boys’ interiors that have more vivid colours as well, including lime green. Often these rooms will have a distinctive “teenage boy” element such as a punching bag, a miniature plane, army theme or a gaming device.

Keeping it cool might be difficult for mum and dad — but with a little bit of input from both generations, everyone will be happy at the end of the day.
