Room designs for teenage boys

The teen boy’s bedroom serves multiple purposes. It is his refuge when he needs some space alone, his office, and social area. The décor for his room not only reflects his personality and style but also needs to be flexible and multifunctional.

Tips for creating a teen haven:

  • Be creative and come up with space-saving storage solutions.
  • Take into account his favourite elements and hobbies and design a room with his involvement.
  • Have a chalkboard that covers one wall. If he likes graffiti or doodling, or just needs space to remember formulas, he will love the wall.
  • Alternatively, graffiti against a minimalistic white room looks brilliant in a teen’s room.
  • Colours to look at can be black, blue or brown but try some fresh colours as well.
  • Earthy hues such as pale grey and charcoal combined with striped bedding creates a mature, yet timeless feel.
  • Some distinctive teenage boy elements to include can be a punching bag, miniature planes, or a gaming device.
  • Consider a themed room, if he loves surfing, then surfboards on the wall with a wave on the adjacent wall. Visit our Pinterest board for this idea.

Spend some time with your son and design a room that you both agree with. A perfect space for hanging with his friends, or just goofing around.

Designing a room fit for your Princess

Your baby is growing up with a busy schedule of school, homework, extra murals, and sleepovers. Transform her bedroom into a space that reflects her style and personality.

Tips to transform her room

  • You can consider letting her choose the colour of the walls. If she likes bold colours, then use this for an accent wall and balance it out with two or three colours to give the room a chic, but girly feel.
  • Alternatively, choose patterned wallpaper matched with white curtains and solid bedding. This will give the room a touch of elegance.
  • For a space that will grow with her, go with a muted palette of ocean blues with pops of pink and red.
  • Her space will be welcoming to her friends to hang out with floor pillows scattered, ottomans, or chairs.
  • Take a nice room and turn it into an over the top cool room with a stunning light fixture, such as a chandelier.
  • Have an eye-catching, stunning headboard, or just dress the bed up with fun bedding.
  • Place the homework station in a spot with good natural lighting. Ideally, you’ll only rely on a table lamp when the kids are studying late into the night.

Colour my Bedroom

Your bedroom is the one place in your home where you should feel totally relaxed, and peaceful. It is the place to get a good night’s sleep to rejuvenate for the next day.  So how can colour help create a sanctuary that matches your style, personality and create a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the world?  Beautiful House asked designers to offer paint colours for the bedroom.

Here are some ideas of colours to use:

  • Colour with a bit of grey in them are more sophisticated. Depending on the time of day, it will look blue, grey or green.
  • Dark Brown green is peaceful and green, especially if you live in a hot climate. Using white or cream bedding makes a beautiful contrast with this colour.
  • Having a lavender touch with a grey tint – feels good for the early riser. Avoid using floral patterns with this colour, unless of course, granny will be sleeping in this room.
  • Camellia Pink – a soft, graceful colour that will make any woman feel beautiful and alive.
  • A green-blue-grey colour reflects a cloudless sky offering calm, relaxing and a peaceful environment.
  • Joa’s White – has hints of grey, brown, cream and white. This colour offers calm and simplicity.
  • Blue Bonnet – offers a classic feel that is light and airy and the strong white undertones keeps the fresh look.
  • Ballroom Blue – Not quite green, and not quite blue but rather like the ocean. A perfect colour to feel like you are being swept off by the waves and waking up refreshed.

Of course, these are just the colours on your walls. Designed to create a calming effect to stimulate relaxation and rest. On their own, they cannot create tranquility. A healthy lifestyle and stress management will lead to a better night’s sleep. Your bedroom is the haven created to drift away.
