3 Budget-Friendly Design Ideas For Your Teen's Bedroom

Sally Horton

Teenagers spend a good amount of time in their bedrooms. with friends and doing homeowner, teens spend a good amount of time in their bedrooms. Therefore, you and your teen will want the space to be stylish, comfortable, and functional. Of course, this can be complicated especially if you are on a budget, but help is available. Here are a few budget-friendly ideas for designing your teen's bedroom.

Focus on the Bed

Many people tend to focus on the paint color of the bedroom walls when starting to design a space. However, focusing on the bed and bedding first is a smart option, since finding a paint color that matches/complements the bed/bedding is a lot easier than finding bedding that matches your paint color.

If you do not have furniture yet or you want to update the actual bed's look, use an old door or fence panel as a headboard for the bed.

Clean and paint an old door and mount it to the wall above the mattress/box spring. Or, find a section of fence panels and cut the top in an arched design to create a unique headboard. Both options add rustic appeal to a teen's room without spending a fortune.

Instead of purchasing expensive complete bed sets for the bedding, invest in key pieces that are functional and of the highest-quality. This will ensure they last longer, making them a smart investment. A fitted sheet and matching pillow cases with high thread counts, a quilt or comforter and matching shams, and a few throw pillows will be sufficient for your teen's bed.

Accent the Wall

Once you have the bed designed, you can choose a new color for the bedroom walls. To add enormous style to the room without spending a lot of money, consider painting one wall instead of all of the walls.

Choose a bold color to create an accent wall in your teen's bedroom. A black wall behind a white headboard adds a dramatic touch to the room. Or, consider navy blue or red for an accent wall against solid white or solid black furniture.

For a softer feel, opt for a new neutral color, such as a light green, lavender, or greige, which is a combination of grey and beige.

Accessorize with Ease

Finally, think outside the box when choosing accessories for your teen's bedroom. Visit flea markets and thrift stores to find unique pieces that suit your teen's personality.

Shop for old globes, traffic signs, antique boxes, and even vintage toys and electronics can all be used as decorative accessories whether hung on the wall or propped up and arranged on reclaimed wood shelves.

By thinking outside the box, you can accessorize your teen's bedroom with ease. Contact an interior design service for more help.
