Decorating a teenager girl’s bedroom can seem like an impossible task. Then, add the fact that her room is small and you have a recipe for frustration and stress! They are so picky; am I right?! But, I still remember what it was like for me when I wanted to go from a little girls room my mom designed (everything in pinks, pastels, unicorns, and princesses) to a “normal” teenager’s room. You just want your room to show off your personality, interests, and how cool you are. Haha! And, I had a small bedroom- so I know the struggle is real. So, check out these teenage girl bedroom ideas for small rooms for inspiration!
2. Tall Dressers
Instead of a regular wide dresser, opt for a tall dresser. It takes up less space. I had to switch out to a taller, more slender, dresser in my daughter’s bedroom because her room is so small. I need every inch of floor space I can get.
3. Multipurpose Furniture
Look for multi-purpose furniture. Double-duty pieces such as a bed frame with built-in drawers, a headboard with shelves, or an ottoman with a lid that doubles as extra storage are great ways to make the most of a small space.
4. Glam Room
Here is another piece of multi-functional furniture. This vanity table looks like it belongs in a celebrity’s glam room. More importantly, it has a ton of storage for makeup, tools, nail polish, hair products, and any many more accessories!
5. Super Long Drapes
Hanging long drapes from the ceiling. Floor-length curtains can give the illusion of higher ceilings and more space.
6. Loft Beds
Loft beds are another great solution to open up some floor space. I actually did this for both of my kids’ rooms so they could have extra storage space underneath. My daughter used the extra space as a reading nook. If you’re ok with a really tall loft bed, you can fit a whole study area under it!
7. Wallpaper Trend
Brighten up the walls with wallpapers – choose bold patterns or playful prints to add interest and texture. Floral wallpaper is actually so cool for a teenage girl’s room. Not what you would see in your grandma’s house growing up. I’m talking about the giant blooms that come in all colors from girly to gothic aesthetics.
8. Light Wall Colors
If you are going to paint and it’s a small room, most interior designers have a preference for lighter shades. Light neutrals reflect more light, making any room appear bigger than it is.
9. Dark and Bold accessories
If you are painting the walls white (or other very light colors) to give the illusion of a bigger room, then use rugs, throw pillows, blankets, and wall art as ways to bring bolder or darker colors into a small space.
10. Bedside Tables
If you have room for a bedside table, opt for one has drawers so you get more storage. If you have no room, don’t worry. Check out this IKEA Spice rack hack where you use a spice rack as a wall mounted bedside table. This is obviously helpful if you went with the loft bed as mentioned before.
12. Use Mirrors
Illusions 101: Use mirrors to make the room look bigger. Strategically placed mirrors help by bouncing light off the walls and making the room brighter. Fake it till you make it!
14. Wall Mounted Desks
Ok, wall-mounted desks are the coolest things I’ve ever seen for small rooms. Just because your teen’s room is small doesn’t mean they get to use that an excuse to not do their homework.
15. Maximize Closet Space
If your teenager’s room has a walk-in closet, be grateful. That’s valuable real estate and there are so many ways to organize it to create new storage. If you just have a regular closet, that’s ok too. I see a lot of teenage girl’s rooms nowadays where they take the doors off of their closets. It makes the room feel bigger and also doubles as room decor.
16. Open Frames
Same concept as the open closet. Choose furniture with open frames. Open and airy-looking furniture helps create the illusion of more space. Canopy beds are all the rage. However, they can look bulky and heavy, like they take up too much space. Small rooms can still get the look by using an open thin-framed four poster bed with a couple sheer panels. Get a shabby chic or boho vibe by adding some lights and vines!
17. Natural Light
Use light fabrics for window treatments – sheer curtains, blinds or shades that let light through will let in natural light always make a room feel larger. If they need blackout curtains, at least keep them all the way open during the day! Or, buy white ones!
18. Wall Decor Creativity
For a teen’s bedroom, adding personal touches is a must– photographs, their artwork, or mementos will remind her of happy memories and make her room feel more personalized. And these things tend to add a pop of color in bedroom decor. It brings comfort to anyone when they can look around and see all the things they’re grateful for.
