Whether it's winter, spring or summer, it is always 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 If she’s had the same rainbow wallpaper since the age of 10, or if the outdated furniture is cramping her style, then it really is time to commence the makeover.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!

Channel Scandi vibes for a grown look and embrace whites and natural woods 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 tattoo effect Epic mural – words spoken like a true lovelorn teenager.
Make the space pop with a big dose of contrasting purple and opt for clean lines, simple designs, and light-coloured flooring. Lacking floor space? Try teenage bedroom furniture that will provide great storage. For instance, under bed storage solutions will keep the room free from chaos. As well as this, provide plenty of boxes and ‘mess baskets’ so she can throw her miscellaneous bits into one place.

Wallpaper designs like this Sweet Blooms mural by Kelly Kratzing is a great example of how nature and floral designs can be good for the soul.

Brighten up her room with a fun pineapple print
Mural in photo: Floral Pineapple
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 fun Floral Pineapple mural is bang on trend, is perfect for the 'gram, and looks fantastic with modern furnishings. Decorate with a mix of sustainable material decor, such as wicker, rattan and jute.
