A teenager is that human who lives in your house, will eat all the food, sleep the entire day away, and then wake up in time to hang out with their friends. It’s a rite of passage for any child and any adult but what if you decorated their bedroom with such chic style they never wanted to leave the house?
You want to make sure that your teenager’s bedroom is a place where they can go to relax, unwind, and release the pressures of the day. It’s a place where they can dream, plan, and discover who it is they are going to be. That is why today we are going to give you 30 teen bedroom ideas that you can recreate yourself!
1. Fairytale Glow
No matter how old we get, we still love a good set of fairy lights in our bedroom. To let these soft illuminations glow as we are falling asleep just means that the dreams will be sweet and plentiful. Go with classic wicker furniture, tons of cushiony softness, and soft pastel colors for the best results.
2. Map of the World
Show your teenager that the sky’s the limit when you outfit their bedroom with exotic prints, a large illumination map of the world, and lots of unique pieces such as fluffy balls of clouds hanging from the ceiling. You want to make their bedroom their own personal oasis, the place where they go to dream and plan for their bright futures ahead.
3. Clothesline Photo Display
Let your teenager pick their favorite photos of their all-time favorite people and memories then hang them on a line that swoops across the walls and back again. This method is a lot easier to display than frames everywhere that can take up precious storage and shelving. This allows your teen to display their creative side as well.
4. Clean and Crisp
Perfect for the teen that doesn’t like a lot of over-the-top decoration and for the teen that perfects a clean, crisp room where everything is its place (and there is a place for everything). The key to making this look work is to highlight the natural lighting that comes in through the windows and keeping the furniture minimalist.

How amazing would it have been to grow up with a wicker swing in your bedroom? Imagine just being able to curl up with your favorite novel, a cup of piping hot coffee, and have the ability to be transported to another realm while gently swaying in comfort! Just make sure you install the swing into a support beam or you risk ruining the ceilings.

6. Shaggy Rugs? Yes, please
Name something that is better at the end of a long day than getting home, removing your shoes and socks, and then sinking your toes into plush goodness that only comes from owning a shag rug – most of us can’t. A white shag rug never goes out of style and it’s a classic for a good reason. Not only do they keep our toes warm, but they also look great while doing it.
7. Raised Bed
Give your teen additional storage for all their important treasures or their seasonal clothes, spare blankets, etc. when you change out their current bedframe for one that is not only raised off the floor but also features drawers in the base. Comfortable, practical, and stylish – what’s not to like?
8. Slanted Ceiling
If your teen’s bedroom has a slanted ceiling, instead of being stuck in terms of decor – use it to create a little sleeping nook for them. You want to choose a bed that fits perfectly into the corners and then install floating shelving on the walls. A modern floor lamp with a fabric shade brings it together.
9. Geometric Prints
An instant and sure way to dress up any bedroom, not only your teenagers, is to paint an accent wall using geometric prints. Choose from a variety of their favorite colors and use a stencil (there are hundreds available online) to create an eye-catching wall that they will love to hang their favorite wall art pieces on.

10. Pallet Bed
Let the uniqueness of your teenager shine by shying away from traditional furniture. Go for a low pallet bed that has all the amenities and features of a regular bed frame, just more stylish opportunities. You can even find ones that have a built-in night table that holds their lamp, phone chargers, and more.

11. Seating and Seating
Every teenager wants enough space for their friends to sit down and relax when they come over to hang out. It’s in the bedroom that plans are made, memories are created, and they are able to truly open up with their best pals. Make sure there is ample seating with a double or larger bed, a desk, and a funky floor cushion.
12. Colorful Explosion
Let your teenager have full reign of their room and their décor! If they want to have a colorful explosion of prints and patterns with artistic works that are outside what is considered the “norm” – then let them. You want their room to be a reflection of who they are as a person so if that means a hanging print of a retro typewriter; then so be it.
13. Artistic Accent Wall
Bring a sense of high design and luxury into your teenager’s bedroom with an artistic accent wall. Allow them to pick the design and then work your color scheme around it, making sure that their pattern doesn’t have competition. You want the room to flow in harmony, not be disjointed and harsh on the eyes. You want to follow the example set here – light shades interspersed with pops of pink.

Keep things clean and fresh by using minimalist furniture where possible. You want clean lines, classic designs, and pure comfort. Check out the example shown here which features a matching night table and dresser with a futuristic circular mirror – all the lines are going in the same direction, making this harmonious bedroom one to envy (as a teenager or as an adult).
15. Vintage Light Fixture
When your teenager is an older soul, then you want to allow them to play that up in their bedroom. Think a plush rug, a notched and rounded headboard, and a hanging macramé chair. But the crowning piece of glory that is found in this bedroom would have to be the vintage shag chandelier that features ombre blues.
16. Bunk Beds
Every child, every teenager, and every adult wishes to have a set of bunk beds in their bedroom – even if it’s just for the cool factor. These beds provide lots of sleeping space during those late-night chats with their friends at a sleepover but they don’t take up as much of the floor space and square footage in the room the same as a larger bed would.

17. Wood Accents
Classic and chic, luxurious and vintage, rustic and charming; all great adjectives to describe what the installation of a wood-paneled wall in your bedroom truly is. This room gets a major upgrade when the wood wall is broken up into painted sections that complement the shades used in the décor. The lighted mirror is perfect for the budding adult in your house as well.

18. Hidden Loft Access
Let your teenager have access to the hidden loft above their bedroom, placing a wooden ladder on the wall for entry. This is the ideal hangout for any young adult and provides them with their own space where they can let their emotions out, be themselves, and create some wonderful memories to carry them through the years.
19. Curtain LED Lights
Keep the magic alive in the heart of your teenager for as long as possible with the help of a curtain LED light. These curtains feature multiple tiny lights that run on battery power or through an electrical outlet. Drape this over the wall behind the bed and allow the magic of dreamland to continue working its will.
20. Not your traditional ceiling
There has never been a written rule that your ceilings in your home have to be painted drywall and while that’s typically the norm; it’s not a necessity. Bring a sense of stellar style to your teenager’s room by installing a wood slat ceiling instead and finish it off with a rounded black matte light fixture.

21. Over-the-Bed Shelving
Ideal for all those trinkets and precious objects that your teenager has gathered over the years; an over-the-bed shelving unit is the best way to provide storage by using space that is underutilized. These over-the-bed shelving units are flatter to the wall, with wider shelves so you don’t have the risk that you can’t fit something on them.

22. Cloudy Skies
Give your teenager the option to sleep on a bed of clouds with a cloud-themed room. The light pastel blues, soft whites, and grey-tone shag rug are just a couple of the things that make this renovation so appealing. Just looking at the image makes you want to dive into the cushion of softness the bed provides.
23. Closet Organizer
It doesn’t matter how old you are, you are always going to have more clothes and accessories than a single dresser will hold. That is why you should invest in a closet organizer for not only your teenager’s bedroom (keep those messes off the floor) but also for your own. These organizers fit directly into your existing closet and installation is a snap.

Bring out the inner child that still lurks in your teenager by allowing them to decorate their bedroom with framed artwork that includes their favorite cartoons. A corner shelving unit offers them the choice when it comes to displaying their other favorite pieces. Keep things mature though with darker colors, wicker blinds, and leather seats.
There is nothing cooler than having a full wall in your bedroom as a chalkboard. It doesn’t matter if the chalkboard can be written on or not, it’s still a pretty nifty addition to any bedroom. Allow this to act as the accent wall and play up the darker tones to complete the look.

27. Luxurious Bed
Show your teenager that you recognize they are getting older and growing up by giving them a truly adult bed that still is playful enough to be fun and futuristic. This rolled and cushion bed is covered in a vintage crushed velvet material that makes for easy cleaning and warm softness, even during the coldest winter nights. Top with throw pillows and a chenille blanket.

28. Pastel Pink
A room fit for a princess, this pastel pink bedroom is equal parts feminine, inspirational, and inviting. The addition of a chaise lounge sofa and the pot lights installed into a recessed row just makes this look all the more sweeter. Fluffy blankets are also great, regardless of age.

29. Bedside Shelves
There is no better way to add storage into your teenager’s bedroom than to use on-the-wall shelving units that install on either side of the bed. Depending on how low the shelving units go on the wall, you can even get rid of clutter in the form of a nightstand because they have their shelving to lay their things on.
30. Natural Light
Let the natural light in and watch how it can completely transform a room with soft illumination. This low bed is in the perfect position to take advantage of all the glorious rays that will be beaming in across and the addition of a colorful rug gives it a great pop of color to break up the pastels.
