55+ Teen Bathroom Ideas (with Photos)


Teen Bathroom Ideas

You can let your teenager express themselves by helping pick out decor options, window treatments, storage, and many other features that a bathroom needs. To pick out what’s best for their bathroom, you can sit down with them and have them pick out the color schemes, organization ideas, and other inspirational components. Whether this bathroom is for one teenager or multiple, involve everyone so all of their aesthetic dreams are achieved.

What Should Teenagers Have In Their Bathrooms?

Here are some things every teenager should have when designing their bathroom.

  1. Window treatments and walls: The first thing you’ll want to do is start with the walls and windows. Will you be applying a fresh set of paint or wallpaper? Do your windows need blinds, shades, or curtains? If applying a paint color, pick a color that lines up with your teenager’s color preferences. If installing wallpaper, pick a texture or design that is one of their favorites. It’s hard to pinpoint what colors a teenager would like as times are changing, so every circumstance will be different. If painting, use a semigloss paint that will do well against humidity and chipping. If your teenager is on the artsy side, encourage them to paint their design on the walls for a unique look.
  2. Organization: Depending on your teenager, organization and storage could rank either high or low on their list. As I teenager I know I needed to have everything clean and a certain way. For teenage girls, you can buy storage containers for their makeup, toiletries, and other hygiene items. Keep items in reach such as hand towels, lotions, and hair care devices. You can even consider adding a separate vanity for them to get ready in the morning and night. Teenage boys, on the other hand, are very simple. A basic bathroom will be just about all the storage they need.
  3. Shower curtains/linens: Let your teenager pick out their shower curtains that go with their theme or color scheme. This could be neutral colors, dark shades of blue, green, sports themes, music, etc. Some show curtains now even have storage pockets that can hold body washes and shampoo. Also, don’t forget to match body towels and hand towels of the same color.
  4. Light and other accessories: You can now replace boring lighting fixtures with modern designs or chandeliers. Add your teenager’s favorite decor such as artwork, plants, pottery, etc. You can boost the aesthetic of their bathroom by adding coordinated rugs, toothbrush holders, and soap dispensers. For an eye-popping touch, you can even paint the frame of their vanity mirror below the lighting.

When opting for white floors and white walls, if you still want to involve some color, try painting half of your walls in the shade of your choice. This will help prevent your bathroom from looking too bare.

Enjoy and be creative!
