Let your teenager express themselves. And choose the color of his room. Red, white or black are often popular colors. For the decoration to be harmonious, it is very important to keep the same color palette for all the furniture.

You can also create consistency thanks to the material which can be identical for all the furniture. In this case, accentuate the decoration with touches of other colors in certain places.
2 – Highlight an object and make it stand out
A bathtub in the middle of the room, a round bed? Without going that far, create a visual appeal somewhere in the room, a strong object, in a particular color.

Do you have little space in your teenager’s room but he has a lot of personality? Oversized decor might just be the answer for such a teenager’s bedroom. Decals, wallpaper and even a gallery of frames can help express your child’s uniqueness without taking up too much space.
