Four Color Schemes For A Teenage Boy's Room

Transitioning a child’s room from toddler to preteen to teen can be a challenge. Through their years of changing interests and tastes, it can be hard to keep up. These four distinct color schemes should work no matter where you live, whether in a sunny coastal area or a mountainous or forest region of the country, like Potomac. Check out these 4 color schemes before calling your Potomac painting company.

As they become teenagers, it’s necessary to help them feel their age. They do not want to be treated like little kids anymore. So giving them a more mature room will help feel like they are growing up and show them we know this, too.

But when our children become teenagers, on their way to adulthood, their bedrooms become a multiple of things. Here are some things to think about before picking out layout, furniture, lighting, and paint colors. 

  1. Does he do school work, reading, or study in his room?
  2. Is he into music or play an instrument in his bedroom?
  3. What are his interests? Sports, nature, photography, gaming?
  4. How much natural light comes into the room? 
  5. Will his room be utilized as a guest room from time to time?

As a parent of teenage children myself, I know well the amount of time teenagers spend in their rooms. Keep in mind that colors affect our mood. With all these things in mind, here are four color schemes we hope will fit for your teenager’s needs and personality.

Picking Out Paint Colors

You may think these color schemes are large. They are for a reason. These color schemes will help you choose a wall color, wood tones, accent colors for bedding, wall treatments, and area rugs. 

If the room gets very little natural light, use a light color on walls and accent with the darkest color. Fabric headboards are a great way to add in deeper tones found in all these color palettes if painting a deep color is scary to you.

Another suggestion is to have a board and baton accent wall installed and painted the deepest color and the most neutral color above. An accent wall like this serves two great purposes. It will transform the room with lots of interest and hides any scuff marks.
