Teenager’s Bedroom Paint Color Ideas That are Adorably Quirky

When choosing paint colors for teenager’s bedroom, you need not follow the same guidelines as you do for painting a master bedroom. This is because while you might enjoy calm and soothing colors in your bedroom, a teenager is hardly going to prefer muted tones in his/her bedroom. This does not mean that you choose fluorescent and psychedelic colors for painting your teenager’s bedroom. Since they are young adults who have their own likes and dislikes, and often very strong opinions, you should ask what colors they would prefer in their bedroom. If they have no clear preferences and leave the decision to you, then you need to make sure that you choose the right paint colors. Once the painting job is done, you do not want to listen to any complaints regarding paint colors that you have chosen.

Primary colors i.e. red, blue and yellow can be safely used for painting a teen’s bedroom.You have to choose the right shade of these colors and pair them well with neutral colors. The brightness of a coral red or cherry red in one of the walls of the bedroom can be subdued by choosing tan, pale yellow or even slate gray for the rest of the walls.

Some paint colors that works well with egg yolk yellow is tan, off white, camel, dark chocolate and mahogany. These bedroom color schemes works very well in a teenager’s bedroom.

Choose from red, orange, hot pink, bright blue, etc. Plan on an accent wall with a different color altogether. You could even use a vividly colored or textured wallpaper to decorate your walls. Another option is to bedeck the walls by pasting faux jewels and a whole lot of glitter all over it. Hang mosaic artwork or colorful tapestries made of hand woven fabric replete with pictorial designs.

Linen for Bohemian Bedrooms

Use silk scarves over your bolsters or hang them alongside curtains. If your floor lacks carpeting, go for area rugs that are made of geometric patterns. Replace chairs with ottomans.
