Decorating a nursery or toddler’s room is more about the parents than it is the baby. Once kids get older and form their own style and opinions, decorating their spaces can be more of a collaboration between you and them. Today, we’ll talk about decorating a teen boy’s room.
The bedroom pictured here is a nice example of classic style for a boy’s bedroom. This is a room that can work for many years because it focuses on classic decorating rather than the current trend or fad. Navy blue color creates a dramatic wall that is offset by the crisp white ceiling. Oak wood floors are durable and another timeless design element.
Stripes on the bedding in red and blue add some pattern to the space. The red contrasts nicely with the blue walls, adding some dynamic energy to the space. Stripes could also be carried up onto the windows with shades to add privacy. Even a white roll down shade would work on the windows to block light in the morning and provide privacy at night.
Furniture is also classic in form. A full or queen size bed is big enough to accommodate a growing boy who might even be taller than mom. An armoire can be used as additional storage, to hold a television or as a desk for homework. Storage with doors is important to control clutter that is typical in a teenager’s bedroom. Accessories that are academic, sport or outdoor themed are also good choices for a classic teenage boy’s room. These are just some basic tips to keep in mind while you and your teen are updating their room. Add in personal detail to make the room fit his interests!
