When boys grow up, so does their taste in style and decor. These days a teenage boy bedroom is more then just a place to study and sleep, they need space of their own to relax and hang out with friends.
So if you are looking for bedroom ideas for teenage boys, we will show you how to start. Don’t forget, this will be a great project to do and get involved in together with your son.
Your son will no doubt have a favourite color, or have some idea of what color he would like to use in his room. Boys often choose dark colors, like blues, browns and black as their favourite color. If the bedroom is small, you might want to use a light color as the dominant color in the room, and use dark colors as secondary and accent color to make the room look bigger.
When you choose colors, try to stick to the 60-30-10 rule to keep the room balanced and not too overwhelming with color. This is how the 60-30-10 rule works:
- 60% – dominant color in the room
- 30% – secondary color in the room
- 10% – accent color in the room
There are plenty of themes that will suit a teenage boy without looking childish. To choose a theme, search the internet together with your son for some ideas, or just think about his hobbies, sports, patterns or scenes that suit his taste.

Wallpaper is a great tool to create a feature wall in a room, whether you choose a wallpaper with a pattern or a theme. The options in wallpaper are endless, and will make a real statement in your sons room. We love this funky wallpaper.
Create your own art by using your sons drawing or painting to frame and hang on the wall, or paint his name in graffiti letters on the wall.
Alternative to making your own art, you could buy wall stickers in graffiti print or sports themes to decorate your sons bedroom walls. Wall sticker are easy to apply and won’t damage the wall when you remove them.
Storage is one thing you can never have enough of, especially for a growing teenage boy. Lockers are a great storage solutions and will fit with almost any teenage boy bedroom design. Aluminium storage boxes are another way to add a muscular feel to a room, and at the same time creating more storage space.
