Sitting down to write about a teenage boys bedroom ideas makes me go back to my teenage days when life was full of big words like dreams, imaginations and innovations. A teenager’s room tends to be as messy as their minds, cluttered up with a new thought every second.
As wild as them:
Firstly there should be no boundaries when designing a teenager’s bedroom. Blue is not the only color that says boys. Using different tones of color is always a good way of bring the walls to life. It can be something light and smoothing like crème or sky blue or perhaps something bold like red. Using colors that complement each other and the furniture’s in the room is always the right way to go. Combining bright wall paint with light colored furniture brings out the wow factor in any room.
Once we are done choosing the wall paint we can look at texture and fabric. Using texture and fabric to tingle the five senses transforms a teenager’s room into his own personal space. It is always a good idea to mix and match when choosing curtains, bed sheets and pillow cases. Using the same texture or pattern can make a room monotonous while being too generous can make you feel dizzy. Hence using texture that go with your look of the room and patterns that look good together is the best thing to do.
When you live the busy life of a teenager easy access to all the daily important items is a must. Well planned cupboards can go a long way in helping to keep the mess out. But is it enough? It is always better to use separate wall cabinets to store the more prized possessions. Wall cabinets help use up wall space which would otherwise remain empty. Glass door wall cabinets would be the perfect place to keep and showoff those trophies and car models.
Beds with drawers on the sides are now available which can be used to store the bed sheets and blankets, maybe even some magazines or chargers for the gadgets. The cupboard assigned for clothes are almost all the time a complete mess due to the line of shelves and drawers. Why not make it a bit like those we see in movies? A separate area for the tuxedo and a drawer for ties borrowed from dad will keep things more interesting and arranged. Using mirrors on the doors of the cupboard also makes the room look bigger and also lets him make some last adjustments when heading out for that first date. A slim modern reading table at a corner near a window would be the temple of knowledge. Having a window near the reading table is important to make sure enough light is available.
Natural lighting is as important as artificial lighting. Windows should never be choked up with furniture or heavy curtains. When choosing artificial lighting, choice should be made so that every corner of the room gets enough light. Lamps set at different heights can be used as well as spotlights and mood lights to really highlight the collectibles.
Making the room look personal:
A teenager’s room reflects his own self interests. A place for the guitar, the poster of his favorite athlete or anime character makes it a living paradise. The key to designing a teenage boys room is to keep space for his activities and interests. A room cluttered with furniture would at the end of the day mean no space for his friends to sit and talk about the pretty girl in class after all.
The challenge is to make it look modern, spacious and organized all at the same time. A teenage boys room is not really about pristine wooden floor and luxury items it’s all about the memories they make with friends and family on that striped carpet from a 50% off sale.
