No teenage girl’s bedroom is complete without a vanity. This design is elegant and gorgeous while still maintaining a modern and sophisticated air. The intricately wrought Victorian-style mirror sets the basis for the Parisian flair further expounded upon with the Eiffel Tower sculpture and artwork, but still pairs well with the sleek lines of the minimalist vanity and drawers. A stylish floating bookshelf adds further storage area without overpowering the space and provides an ideal spot to place delicate decor items to further the feminine appeal, like flower accents.
For a touch of magic in everyday life, look no further than fairy lights. Twined through sheer drapes, the tiny twinkling bulbs give a room an ethereal feel that’s sure to delight.

Sedate and restful are good, general concepts for adult bedroom design, but teenagers prefer a bedroom that’s fun and a signature of who they are. The number one response to what personality aspect a teen wants to express through their room was “creative”, while calm came in almost last. Bold, imaginative elements will excite a teen like nothing else. Some unique teen bedroom ideas that add fun to a room include:
A vertically oriented study area. To recreate the look above, create a small surface for writing and make use of vertical space above and below the table surface for storage and other itemsCork boards or magnetic dry erase boards can clear the small desk surfaceA small bench against the bed’s footboard could be a good, versatile loungeAdd a few throw pillows and a rug in a corner for a lounge area if space is a challengePlace the bed lengthwise against a wall, daybed style.
Add mosquito netting or fabric to create an exotic lounge and sleeping combinationNix the bed frame and add a headboard decal on the wall to save spaceA sofa table is narrow enough to work on and makes a great desk for small spaces
If you’re after a particular style, finding a piece that fits perfectly with your ideal can be an epic struggle. In the case of this shabby chic mirror, one would have been hard-pressed to find something akin to this particular Renaissance design in the modern day. Rather than settle on a less desirable piece, this gorgeous mirror was hand-crafted from an old door, transformed into a mirror frame. Finding an old door to refurbish also grants the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind piece, and will more than likely carry a much less hefty price tag than a similar antique or antique-inspired article.
Bold patterns in this bohemian bedroom’s headboard, pillows and bedding mix seamlessly with a weathered stone accent wall and vintage stair step nightstand.
If small space is an issue, use creative approaches to meet their multi-purpose room goal. Some teen small bedroom ideas for creating a versatile, small space include:
Designer Claire Paquin carefully crafted this glamorous tween room with growth in mind. She kept the room’s main elements — flooring, wall color, built-ins and more — in a neutral palette to allow for shifting style preferences through the years.
Modern black, white and gray furnishings provide a sleek contrast to fun floral print wallpaper in this gorgeous upscale space.
Bee a little eccentric with a wacky honeycomb themed wall. This unconventional design is perfect for a teen girl who wants room ideas that feature lots of colors. A ranging color palette might otherwise overwhelm a room, but done in a funky way like this, a bevy of colors is more quirky than overpowering. The progression along the color gradient from fully saturated to white contributes to this virtue, a technique easily replicated by mixing in increasing amounts of white paint as you move down the wall.
Great for lounging, reading a good book or taking quick naps, hanging chairs are one of the hottest of-the-moment bedroom design trends.
Varying shades of lavender paired with rich cream accent pieces were used throughout this soft space to create a calm, relaxing effect.
A dramatic upholstered bed, elegant gold chaise lounge, rich purple accents and glamorous bedside pendant lights combine to give this small room a large dose of cozy opulence.

A cozy, pillow-lined window seat is the perfect spot for a teen girl to write, read or imagine. This sweet seat is flanked by pretty white and gold sconces for easy-access reading light and a small side table to hold drinks and snacks.
It also doubles as chic built-in storage!
Accent colors are all the rage, but they don’t just have to be on your walls. Bring the brightness to your furniture by painting the backs, shelves, or sides (or all of the above!) of bookcases a festive hue, like this fun and funky gray and pastel pink bookshelf. The same concept can be applied to a number of different pieces of furniture, like the drawers of dressers or the legs of desks. Feel free to go wild; there’s no place better suited to be coated with color than a teenage girl’s bedroom. Be bright and bold with your choices, or opt for more subtle and muted shades— either way, contrasting colors are a trendy and fashionable choice when it comes to teen girl room ideas.

While adults prefer a space that’s calm and understated, teens appreciate vibrantly colored, high energy rooms. The wall is the biggest area you can work with in a bedroom. Some of the best teen bedroom ideas involve the walls. Here are our favorite:
Different styles of furniture and fabrics find themselves part of a cohesive whole in this room thanks to the choice of colors. A gray rug over hardwood floors gives a homey, comfortable feel and, paired with the matching gray of the walls, creates a neutral base on which to build the rest of the space. The small nook is utilized to its fullest as study space with a framed corkboard that reaches almost the ceiling, providing organization opportunities and the ability to add personal touches in a way that doesn’t feel cluttered. Complementary colors complete the ensemble, with teal and salmon accents abounding, even extending to the pale teal ceiling. A paper flower chandelier tops off the retro chic space, beautifully curated and sure to please any girl.
When brainstorming teen bedroom ideas, the most important thing to remember is that their bedroom is an expression of who they are.

An effortless way to bring color into a stark room is through the addition of flower-based art pieces. These can be made very painlessly at home with scrap wood, plastic flowers, wood letters, and a hot glue gun, letting you take control of the types and colors of flowers employed in your unique piece. Easy to customize brings another positive aspect: making multiple words in different shades and hues makes it simple and straightforward to swap out depending on your mood, the season, or the closest holiday. In a space that’s primarily made up of a neutral palette, these delicate and feminine designs bursting with life and color can drastically alter the feel of a room, bringing in a wealth of brightness and joy.
For the teen that’s great at keeping her space clean, an all-white bedroom is a luxurious and ultra-cozy option. To pull off this look, add interest with metallic accessories and a mix of fabric textures.
If you’ve got the square footage for it, aiding productivity can be as easy as including a dedicated workspace in the bedroom. This stylish set of bright whites with pops of pink and blue produces an air of driven focus, while still keeping a cheery, light-hearted vibe. Homework, studying, and research projects beware the powerhouse of teenage initiative that will settle in to pound out assignments at record speed in this gorgeous space. Bookshelves allow for storage of all the learning essentials, and a second, smaller pull-out desk makes it easy to swap between tasks. A comfy chair with fluffy pillows allows for brief respites in between hardcore study sessions.
A teen will most appreciate an approach to their room as their mini, self-contained apartment where they can spend most of their time comfortably. Regardless of size, a teen’s bedroom needs to be versatile enough for them to spread out and get homework done, hang with friends, lounge and sleep, all while reflecting their personality.
For a designer-worthy look, choose a simple color palette of three to four neutral hues and a single, bright accent color like the eye-catching pink in this chic bedroom. Add interest with a variety of bold, trendy patterns and cozy textures like cotton, faux fur, knits, etc.
With a wall-length desk and copious storage space, this teen bedroom is both stylish and totally functional. Accent pieces in soft primary colors bring cheery life to the classic white walls and muted carpet.
Pretty traditional furniture is painted a soft gray to match a gray stenciled wall in this luxe teen room. Bright turquoise accents add contrast and playful interest to the otherwise neutral space.
If you’ve ever stepped foot into the typical teenage girl’s bedroom, you know that the floor generally becomes a wardrobe wasteland of apocalyptic proportions. Functional organization methods like closet organizers can help, but to truly encourage keeping tidy, try making storage a focal point. Shelves like these turn picking up shoes into a design element, making cleaning up that much more rewarding. This is exceptionally beneficial in a smaller room where every inch of storage space counts, as a bare wall doesn’t provide much utility, and open shelving makes the area feel a bit larger than a looming wardrobe would.
Paired with white furniture, bedding and accessories, teal wall paint makes a chic splash in this cozy retreat. A wall-mounted flat screen TV is blended into a gallery wall for a design that’s both stylish and functional.
Let’s face it, teenagers and orderly rooms are a rare combination. Messy rooms seem to be a teenager’s rite of passage. Good storage options will be the best feature they didn’t think they needed but will appreciate.

Teen bedroom ideas should include functions specific to their age, as well as look great. While adults prefer a space that’s calm and understated, teens appreciate vibrant, high energy rooms. Keep the following teen bedroom ideas in mind.
A mounted wall mirror and stowable fabric storage give this vanity a second use as a desk for homework or studying. This is a great choice for a teenage girl’s bedroom, as having a separate desk and vanity cuts into valuable room real estate in all but the largest bedrooms. The fluffy fur rug makes the area more hospitable and creates clear definition of where the space begins and ends, turning it into one element of the whole room. A glass top makes for a modern look and pairs well with the clear chair, but also serves a second purpose as an easily cleanable surface for makeup messes or study snack spills.
consider their room as more than just a sleeping space. As they begin exploring their independence, having a room where they can hang out, study and lounge with friends is almost more important to them than sleep. And the social aspect of a room is big. A survey of global teenagers by smartgirl.org found that the #1 thing a teen would add to their room is a poster of themselves with their friends. Work with your teen to creatively address the following areas in their room:
Add glamorous interest to a plain white bedroom with inexpensive yet oh-so-chic ceiling decals. If you have textured ceilings, skip the decals and opt for a stencil and paint instead.
There are few places where a teen can express themselves unabashedly. The bedroom is the top choice. The beauty of being a teenager is that the world is their oyster. Their favorite things are diverse and sometimes discordant, but with some planning, all ideas can tie together beautifully.
From the bold purple color palette to the vintage pieces and fashion-inspired fabrics, everything in this room will transition well as a tween girl becomes a full-fledged teenager. To invest wisely with tween room updates, emphasize color and pattern instead of themes.

For the teenager who’s built up a collection of accessories that can’t be contained by a typical jewelry box, storage options can seem limited. Rather than stashing all your baubles away to turn into a tangled mess at the bottom of a drawer somewhere, take some inspiration from this piece and put them out on display. This organizer sells for a pretty penny on Etsy, but could easily be DIY-ed with scrap wood or pre-fabricated shelves and cup hooks. Cork backing in one section creates an easy solution for earrings, and longer necklaces that won’t fit in the frame can be hung on hooks screwed into the bottom. The simplistic design can be personalized in a number of ways, though this rustic, natural wood choice would complement a number of different room designs.
Every young girl dreams of a uniquely personal space to call her own, but nailing down a cohesive look for a teenage girl’s bedroom can be an especially difficult endeavor.
