Transforming your teenage daughter’s room can be a daunting task. Assuming she’s no longer in her stuffed animal and doll phase, what comes next for her room? Ideally, your teen girl’s room should match her personality and be a fun, creative space that’s a daily escape. Read on for 13 bedroom decor ideas for teenage girls you can try with your daughter.
What should a teenage girl's bedroom include?
A teenage girl’s bedroom should include the same essentials as any bedroom – a bed and some sort of shelving unit. Her bed should be a unique focal point, complete with fuzzy blankets, throw pillows, and maybe a canopy if you’re feeling extra.
Other pieces you may want to include in her room might be a dresser and a desk that can store both her schoolbooks and organize her makeup. You can also elevate her room design with table lamps, hanging lights, wall decorations, and mirrors.
How do you decorate a small teenage bedroom?
Decorating your teenager's small bedroom can be challenging. Sure, you know that unicorn wallpaper was so last year, but maybe you’re not quite sure if chandeliers and accent walls are the right moves. Here are some design ideas that can transform your daughter’s childhood room into a teenage dream.
Use bright color combos
Your daughter’s bedroom should be her happy space where she can go and relax or let her creative energy flow. Using bright color combinations can immediately add a positive, cheery vibe and helps to create the perfect space. Choose between sunshine yellow and sky blue, or go vibrant with lime green and hot pink for the ultimate mood-boosting decor.
Create your own bold decor piece
You don’t need to buy all new items to create your daughter's ideal bedroom. Instead, you can refurbish one of your home decor pieces with a fresh coat of paint. Choose one piece, such as a dresser, nightstand, or cozy nook, to accentuate with a pop of color. Then, watch as your daughter’s room transforms from an ordinary bedroom into her creative sanctuary.
Include lots of shelving
Teenage girls can be a wild card. Some days, they’re into makeup and jewelry, while other days, they’re focused on becoming the best volleyball player in school. To keep up with your daughter’s evolving interests, include plenty of shelving in her room. This way, she can continue to stay organized as she traverses all sorts of new horizons.
Incorporate memorable details
As much as a teenage girl wants to be an adult, she still has a ways to go. Instead of letting her run full speed ahead into adult life, take her back to her childhood with a few memorable decor pieces. Whether that’s a personal art piece, a childhood picture, or a stuffed animal, those small details can take her right back to the old days.
13 trendy bedroom decor ideas for teenage girls
Finding a bedroom theme that incorporates adult features but isn’t too neutral and bland can sound tough. In reality, it’s often easy – with the right decorations, you can create an ideal teenage room perfect for a girl transitioning into adulthood. Use the below ideas as inspiration for your teen’s bedroom revamp.
1. Go for a “grown up” palette
For more mature interests or the daughter who’s 13 going on 30, a grown-up bedroom style might be just what she needs. To give her room the adult aesthetic it needs, try changing up the color scheme with a fresh coat of paint and unique decor. A classic black and white or neutral hue can brighten up her space and make it appear more organized. Then, elevate her room with a fur rug, chandelier, and wall art to bring true elegance home.
2. Add statement lights
Instead of a clunky floor lamp that doesn’t add any aesthetic value to your teen’s room, try adding lighting that doubles as unique room decor. The BlissRadia, for example, is a small orb that sits perfectly on a nightstand during the day, then effortlessly lights up her room at night.
The BlissRadia can shine in any color of the rainbow and transition through colors with several ambient effects. When your daughter needs a mood boost, she can set the BlissRadia to the Sun effect. Then, once she’s ready to relax, she can drift away under the gentle oscillations of the Neon gradient. She can shift between all these immersive experiences through the BlissHome mobile app, Google Home, or Alexa for a hands-off journey above and beyond.

3. Hang fairy lights or decorative vines
Create an ideal fairytale ambiance with swiveling green vines and hanging lights around your daughter’s room. Choose white lights and green vines to transform her room into a glowing outdoor sanctuary. Or opt for colorful hanging lights for the ultimate at-home movie experience.
4. Try different painting styles
Your teen’s bedroom walls are a blank canvas. You two can get creative together and design your own unique art piece on these walls. All it takes is masking tape and a few different accent colors. Use the masking tape to create large geometric shapes on the wall, then paint each one a different color. Bold, bright colors can help your daughter see her surroundings in a whole new light.
5. Clash colors and prints
Your teen’s room is the perfect place for her to experiment with bold colors and prints. For starters, you two can choose one large dominant print. This can be anything from a large floral landscape to a geometric print wall. Then, you both can add small-scale prints and bold colors around the room with rugs, pillows, and accent pieces. This way, you can create a fun, unique clash that’s as daring and lively as your daughter’s personality.
6. Include a dreamy headboard
Now that your daughter’s a bit older, it’s time to ditch the basic bed frames for large, elegant headboards. You’ll add plenty of comfort to your teen girl’s room while also creating a statement. You can opt for a blush pink for a feminine aesthetic or choose a daring print to make her space feel flush with life.
7. Add a plush papasan chair
For the ultimate cozy bedroom nook, add a plush papasan chair into the corner. These chairs are known to be super comfy, and they also double as unique decor pieces. Choose between a classic white furniture piece, or opt for a striking pink, blue, or green chair for an eye-catching accent. You’ll push your teen girl’s bedroom into new dimensions.
8. Design the perfect makeup station
If your daughter is a makeup guru or wants to experiment with makeup, surprise her with a brand new makeup station in her room. All you need for this is a desk or table, good lighting, and a chair.
Depending on her bedroom’s aesthetic, you can find any table or desk and add a fresh coat of paint to match the scenery. Then, add a mirror, lighting, and a cushioned chair. To go above and beyond, include a jewelry holder or tray for perfumes to infuse that “get ready with me” TikTok vibe into her surroundings.
9. Incorporate different textures
Using just one texture to decorate can make your teen’s room appear a bit dull. Instead, try a few different textures for a bold statement. Choose soft furs for rugs or throw pillows, then opt for silk fabrics for bedsheets and curtains. This combination of fabrics can rebirth her bedroom area as a sophisticated sanctuary.
10. Choose a flowy canopy style
Just because your daughter hit her teenage years doesn’t mean she’s no longer a princess. You can give her a princess fairytale aesthetic complete with a flowy canopy around her bed, complete with twinkling fairy lights for a magical atmosphere. Choose between a luscious sheer pink, or add some twists and turns to her space with a bolder set of colors.
11. Go for the ultimate gothic vibe
Let’s say your daughter is a total goth. In that case, she might want a goth room. That can be more than pitch-black – with the right decor, you can tastefully create the ultimate gothic vibe. Choose a black and white patterned wallpaper to create a bold focal point. Then, add black fuzzy pillows, a rug, curtains, and voila – goth glamor.
12. Incorporate nature with plants
You can shape your daughter's bedroom into a gorgeous greenhouse with bright florals and greenery galore. Include some florals, ferns, and an oversized plant to match her nature-filled aesthetic, or select a few fake plants for a no-maintenance option. Then, find a chic, colorful vase that will bring her bedroom to life.
13. Take your bedroom out of this world
If your daughter craves serenity, creativity, and inspiration, a galaxy projector can bring the night sky right into her room. The Sky Lite Evolve, for example, can transform her room into a realistic galaxy.
Your daughter can create her own interstellar scene with the Evolve’s one-of-a-kind 360-degree rotation that can reach every nook and cranny. She can also set her own custom nebula colors and effects from the BlissHome app. Right from the app or via voice control, she can shift her surroundings to take her room light years away – all without moving an inch.
