Teen Bedroom Themes

Every teen that I know loves to decorate their bedroom.  I have 3 teenage boys in my home and they each have their own room and their own taste.  Teens loves themes from retro to modern, black walls to pink walls and punk rock to hip hop.  Many parents don’t like the idea of their teen having black walls but you can also repaint after you teen moves out and heads off to college.  Here are some cool teen bedroom themes.

Black and White Theme- Many teens hate the drab white walls in their room so they opt to paint one wall black and there others remain white.  The great thing about a black wall is that it will bring attention to posters as well as other artwork.  Where the other walls are white, it does not make the room look totally pitch black.  

Girly Pink Theme- Girls love pink.  When painting a girls room, try using pale pink with white for a softer look instead of a bright pink.  If you want more color, try adding green or blue for more contrast.  

Boys Navy and Khaki Theme- These are two popular colors with teen boys.  

Girls Patterned Theme- Patterns that work well in a girl’s room are polka dots, bubble dots, flowers, hearts and diamonds.  These can be worked into the room nicely through artwork, bedding or wallpaper.

Boys Patterned Theme- Patterns that work well in a boy’s room are stripes, camouflage, sports logo, plaid or checkered patterns.  You can use bedding and area rugs to complete the look.  

Glam Girls Theme- Teen girls love the glitz and glamour of Hollywood so why not create a bedroom theme that fits their personality.  Use one wall in the room and cut of photos of favorite musicians and actors.  Add a fancy chandelier, gold framed mirror and hang silk from the ceilings.

Favorite Artist Theme- This is a suitable room for tween girls.  The most popular artists are Hannah Montana and The Jonas Brothers.  Hang pictures of the favorite artist along with wall decorations.  Just make sure that nothing is permanent since taste in artist will change down the road.

Sporty Guys Theme- With teen guys, they are more likely to follow the NBA or NFL than the Jonas Brothers.  Decorate with team colors and add special touches such as bedding and curtains in either the team logo or team colors.  You can also add posters, banners and other sports memorabilia.  

Extreme Sports Theme- Extreme sports are things like motocross, surfing and skateboarding.  A great color scheme for extreme sports is green and black.  Add a skateboard or surf board to the wall to complete the look.  

These are some fun ways to decorate a teen bedroom.
