It’s back to school soon, making it the perfect time to give your teen daughter’s bedroom a style overhaul. If she’s had the same rainbow wallpaper since the age of 10, or if the outdated furniture is cramping her style, it’s time to commence the makeover.
They grow up so fast, and while there’s no manual for surviving those teenage years, we do have ideas for giving her a safe haven to go to when things get tough. From squad spats and heartbreak to school exam stress, every teenager needs a comfortable, calming escape at the end of each day. Let’s face it… The more Instagrammable her bedroom, the more likely she is to keep it clean (even if it is just for social media).
Ready to get started? Here are some teen girl bedroom ideas that will make tidying her room a pleasure instead of a chore!
Create flamingo fever with a tropical paradise
Is there anything more uplifting or smile-inducing than a flock of pretty pink flamingos? This Flamingo Rendezvous mural by Andrea Haase is a fun, colourful and on-trend design that’s fit for an Instagram Queen. Not only is it a total mood booster, but it’s also a great backdrop for all those selfies. With this cute bedroom wallpaper, she’ll be the envy of her friends.
Turn her room into a pink tropical paradise, and furnish with organic woods and stylish vinyl flooring. Don’t forget ample shelving and storage to keep the place clutter-free.
Design a calming space with her own private beach
Life as a teenage girl is a lot of things. It’s exciting, it’s fun, it’s sometimes scary, and it’s a big learning curve. Some days are easier than others. For those days when things just aren’t going her way, a beautiful beach mural can provide the ultimate escape.
This Acapulco mural by Paul Fuentes combines colour therapy with photorealistic imagery to transport her to a beautiful place in her mind. Colours such as soft blue and pink are known to enhance wellbeing and combined with light furnishings this room will be totally calming.
Inspire her everyday with motivational wallpaper
Quote wallpaper designs are one of the best teen girl bedroom ideas for those who need help with their confidence. You can easily find quote wall murals for any colour scheme, or you can even create your own wallpaper design with our image upload feature.
This Inner Sparkle quote mural matches seamlessly with 2019’s hottest colour trend, grey. Channel Scandi vibes for a grown look, and embrace white linens to keep the room looking spacious and airy.
Raise her street cred with a graffiti feature
If your teenager considers street style fashion her bible, and has more creps than curlers, a splash of graffiti on her walls could be exactly what she needs to keep her bedroom tidy. We love the “Love Kills” scribblings on this Epic Graffiti mural – words spoken like a true lovelorn teenager.
Make the space pop with a big dose of contrasting purple (a trend colour in 2020) and opt for clean lines, simple designs, and light-coloured flooring. Lacking floor space? Try under bed storage solutions to keep the room free from chaos, and provide plenty of boxes and ‘mess baskets’ so she can throw her miscellaneous bits into one place.
Turn her room into a creative art studio
Does she love to draw, paint, design or sew? Whether she’s a pro at arts and crafts or a Photoshop whizz, having a dedicated space can do wonders for her creativity. Inspire her to do what she loves most with a well-designed, artistic and nurturing space.
Wallpaper designs like this Sweet Blooms mural by Kelly Kratzing (exclusive to Wallsauce.com) is a great example of how nature and floral designs can be good for the soul.
Make her friends feel welcome with a selfie wall
If there are two things that teenage girls love, it’s got to be a) their friends and b) selfies with their friends. With our create your own wallpaper service, you can transform her corner of the house into a squad-friendly zone. With her pals being made to feel welcome, she’ll want to keep it looking as clean and tidy as possible. Throw in a foldaway sofa-bed if there’s space and she’ll be #squadgoals all over Instagram.
Help her channel next year’s hottest trend colour
As mentioned in our Interior Design Trends 2020 Predictions, purple is the new pink. Millennial pink has dominated social media feeds for too long now, and it’s time to pave the way for the next ‘it colour’. This Soul Birds Peacock Mural by Yani Mengoni fully embraces next year’s hot hue and features a beautiful peacock design with fabulous florals.
Mellow out the bold design with some soft greys, and keep it as a feature wall to avoid overcrowding the space.
Grown-up teen bedroom ideas with the Scandi touch
There’s no better motivation for keeping tidy than minimalist interiors that just don’t mix with clutter. Make her space amazing, and provide her with all the drawers, cupboards and boxes she needs, and it will be impossible to mess up.
With Scandi-inspired simplicity, she’ll have a calming space to think, reflect, study, and get her beauty sleep. This Grey Village Mural from the Wallsauce Surface Pattern Collection is a match made in heaven for a chic minimalist bedroom.
Brighten up her room with a fun pineapple print
Have you ever wondered why pineapples are so popular in interior design? The fruit was first discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493 and was later brought over to Europe. Perhaps their significance in history reminds us of sunnier days and something more exotic than our own reality. Escapism is something that we see a lot of in interiors.
Whatever the reason for their popularity, every millennial or Gen Z seems to have (or want) a pineapple in their bedroom. So it’s a great teen girl bedroom design idea if you want to impress your adolescent.
This Pink Pineapple mural is bang on trend, is perfect for the 'gram, and looks fantastic with modern furnishings. Decorate with a mix of wood and metal finishes, particularly golds, coppers and rose gold hues.
