Black and White Bedroom Ideas For Teenage Girls

Teenage, the time to explore, experiment, evaluate, choose and create new trends! For a teenage girl to have a black and white bedroom, psychologically depicts her confronting the negative and positive. Here is what can be done to make the bedroom the best of its kind.


Whether you would want a wall colored white or black, completely depends on your choice and personality! If you are the extreme kind, then you could choose white, if you would like your walls bright, or black, if you like it dark and want to give your bedroom a cave like feel.
You can paint your walls in patterns and designs. For girls, a plain white wall with pitch black prints of flowers, butterflies, birds, or stars; or black wall with snow white prints, would give your bedroom a wonderful look!


Keep the flooring simply white or black.  White is recommended, as it will give a base to the furniture and accessories you would keep in your bedroom. White would enhance them more efficiently. If you like the floor to be with designs, go for designs that have a neutral impact on the furniture and accessories.


Choose the bed which has only one color and not both black and white. Why? Because the single color of bed would enhance the look of the black and white pattern bedding.
The side tables, dressing table and study table can have a combination of both colors, but it's advisable to have more of one color (white or black), and less of the other. For example, if your dressing table is all white, the knobs/handles can be black. You can also go for other colors like red lamps, to accentuate the black and white effect.


Accessories like bedding, curtains, lamps, carpets, paintings/pictures should be placed in such a way that the look of the bedroom is clear, not only in terms of 'cleanliness' but also the look and perception should be clean. Also, always choose the color of the accessory opposite to the color of the base or background.
For example, if your walls are white, choose the curtain design which has more of black. If your side tables are white, a black lamp would look perfect on them!

But make sure that the rest of the wall is colored in one color only so that the accessories and the main wall stands out!


Plain flooring looks best. Choose any color from either black and white! The flooring enhances due to the texture/material used for it. Polished hardwood flooring or ceramic tiles flooring will give your bedroom a classy and modern feel!


The furniture should be simple and classy. Avoid designs and carvings on the furniture if you want to give your bedroom a complete modern look! Italian furniture designs are best suited for modern bedrooms. Go for both, completely black and white furniture.
Choose a wardrobe which has sliding doors, make sure your bedroom has glossy furniture, scratch resistance and clean finish to give your bedroom a neat and tidy feel.


Choose the accessories that complement the background/base. If the flooring is white, go for a black carpet. If the walls are white, accessorize them with black picture frames. If the side tables are white, select black lamp shades. This combination will give your bedroom a minimal yet relaxing appeal.
These ideas should help you get a clear picture of how you want your bedroom to be. Use your creativity and judgment to come up with ideas to decorate a bedroom with black and white, the evergreen combination of all times.
