Teenage Designs: How to Decorate Your Bedroom Like a Teenager


For most people, the teen years are a time of creativity, rebellion, and experimentation. It's when we start to question the rules our parents set for us and try new things. That's why it's no surprise that many teenagers want their bedrooms to reflect this attitude! If you're thinking about redecorating your room or looking for ways to make it stand out from all the others in your school, here are some ideas for decorating like a teenager:

Boxes are the most versatile pieces of furniture you can use to decorate your room. They’re cheap, they come in any size, and they can be made from any material (wooden boxes are particularly good for this). You can paint them or cover them with a material that matches the rest of your room.

You can use boxes as headboards behind your bed, desks under your computer monitor (if you have one), or lamps on each side of your bed at night so you won’t bump into them when walking around in the dark!

If you've got the space, a headboard is a great way to make your bedroom feel cozy and personal. You can use blocks as the base of your headboard or even create one from scratch using wood from around the house. For example, if you have an old coffee table that's seen better days, take up some of its pieces and build yourself a comfy bedside table with them!

To add more storage without sacrificing too much floor space (and thus making your room feel smaller), consider installing shelves above where your mattress sits against the wall. It's an easy way to add some built-in storage while keeping things organized in an otherwise messy room.

You can also use blocks as part of other furniture items like tables or desks—just don't forget they're there when sitting down!

Drawer and cabinet heads

Take a look at your bedroom. Are there any drawers or cabinets that you could use to display some of your favorite items? If not, maybe it's time to think about adding some!

If you want a place to store clothes or other items in your bedroom, drawer or cabinet heads are the perfect solution. You can paint them or stain them any color you like, and they will look great on the wall above any furniture with drawers. You can even decorate them with stickers if you want something more personal than just plain wood or metal!

You don't have to be an artist either—if this isn't something that comes naturally for you (like me), don't worry! There are plenty of tutorials online that will show step-by-step instructions on how to make these things as well as tips on what types of materials work best depending on how much money is available."

The tree stump coffee table is a stylish and practical piece of furniture, as it can be used in several different ways.

  • It can be used as a bedside table, since it’s close to the ground.
  • You could also use it as a side table if you have limited space in your room.
  • The tree stump end tables are great for holding plants or books and magazines on them!

Floating shelves

One of the best ways to make your bedroom look more like a teenager’s is to add floating shelves. When done right, this will add some much-needed space in your room and give you a place to display all of your favorite things.

How do I install floating shelves?

As with any DIY project, it’s important to follow instructions carefully when installing floating shelves. The first thing you want to do is measure the distance between the wall studs so that you can determine how thick the shelf should be (you don’t want it sitting on top of drywall alone). To do this, use a level and tape measure and mark where each stud is located on both sides of your bed frame or headboard by drawing lines across them at eye level. Then use these marks as guides for drilling pilot holes into which screws can be inserted through wooden boards before securing them in place using nails or screws depending upon what type they were made out of originally; finally attach brackets onto those same boards so they will connect with something sturdy enough not only hold up some weight but also prevent sagging over time!

Bold colors

You can use bold colors like red, blue or yellow to create an accent in your room. If you're painting a large space, try to limit the color palette to two bold colors and use them sparingly. For example, if you want a small space that feels larger than it is, try painting one wall red with another a light shade of green. This will create contrast between the two walls and make it seem larger than it really is.

Neon signs are one of the best ways to add a pop of color to your room. They’re fun, creative, and they help you add personality to your space. Neon signs can be found at thrift stores or online. If you want to go the DIY route and make your own neon sign, that's even better!

Pictures and posters

You can find a variety of posters and pictures to hang on the wall. A poster of your favorite movie or music group is an easy way to decorate your bedroom. You can also create a collage with magazine cutouts or photos from magazines, if you have some old magazines lying around.

Here are some other ideas for posters:

  • Pictures of your friends that you have taken yourself
  • A picture of yourself (or someone else) in action, like playing sports or doing something more artistic, such as painting their nails
  • A picture of a famous person (such as pop singer Taylor Swift)

Shelves for books and plants.

Shelves are a great way to store books and display items that you like. You can also use shelves to display plants and photos. Shelving is an easy way to add some personality and color to your room without spending a lot of money or time.

You can stay fashionable by using creative, interesting ideas for your bedroom.

Your bedroom is the place where you can relax and unwind. It's also the room where you should be able to express your personality. If you're not a teenager but still want your bedroom to look like one, you have come to the right place!

Here are some ideas for making your space look trendy:

  • Use a lot of color. This will give it that youthful feel and make it stand out from other rooms in your house. You can use bright colors like red, yellow or orange on pieces of furniture like pillows or curtains. If those colors are too bold for you, try using pastel shades instead (such as baby blue or light pink). They will still add plenty of brightness to any room without being too overpowering.
  • Get creative with patterns! Patterned wallpaper can help give an area more visual interest while adding character at the same time—and it’s easy enough for anyone (even teens) who wants something new yet simple enough not make things complicated if they don’t want something elaborate either!

And that’s it! That should just about cover all the popular teen bedroom decorating ideas out there. The best thing about these designs is that they can be adapted to suit your own tastes and style, so feel free to change things up a bit if you want something more unique.
