Unique Bedroom Ideas: Room Themes for Teenagers

Tastes of teenagers constantly change, and it is usually their bedroom that reflects their unique personality and interests. Oversized posters and neon walls might make for a personal statement, although parents might not be on board with such a decorating direction. The art of design compromise can help bring a mature sensibility to the sanctuary of a teen. Here are some sophisticated and unique bedroom ideas that can easily transition to a guest room when the teen leaves the nest.
An eclectic bohemian design will bring exotic locale to a teen’s bedroom. Bold wall colors blended with lush textures and rich fabrics set the scene for charmingly mismatched furnishings and accents. Import stores, garage sales and flea markets hold treasures for a boho design. Create an informal setting with a pile of oversized pillows and add romance with a bed canopy like the Tamara Modern White King Size Bed by Nuevo Living, fashioned with saris and shawls. To give subdued lighting, use candles, ornate lamps and brightly colored glass pendants.

With hectic lives filled with sports, schoolwork and activities, teens could use a quiet place to de-stress. A Zen bedroom pairs minimal design with soothing colors and sleek furniture, and should help unorganized teens manage their personal items by giving storage solutions that will seamlessly blend into the d├ęcor. Low and modern furniture pieces like floating nightstands and a platform bed like the Dark Chocolate Orchid Eastern King Platform Bed create clean lines and give the room a feeling of lightness. Separate the sleeping area from the homework space with a shoji screen.

Give the teen a bit of summer vacation all year round with a beach-themed bedroom. Use creams, tans and blues to bring to mind the sea and accessorize with artwork, artifacts, and shells that imply that the beach is just beyond the horizon. Keep accessories subtle so you do not create an overly kitschy theme room. Pick furniture pieces that appear to have been collected overtime, and use a vintage surfboard as a headboard for a whimsical touch. Use natural or white washed pine to a West or East Coast feel or dark woods to make it look like a British colonial getaway.
Mid-Century Modern
Turn back the clock to the 1950s and give the teen a retro-themed bedroom. Bright white and punches of bold color will energize the interiors, and incorporate organic shapes and clean lines in furniture, lighting and accessories. Lightwoods with a Scandinavian twist, vinyl upholstery, and molded plastics should word. Keep the bed uncomplicated -- an unadorned platform bed like the Zurich Eastern King Bed by Lifestyle Solutions would be a good choice. Add a flokati area or funky shag rug to give the bedroom a more youthful appeal.
