Funky bedding ideas for teenage girls are abundant! The good news is that there are plenty of design options to provide loads of funky bedroom style without breaking the bank. Having plenty of affordable bedding choices can help the stress out of shopping for your teen's bedroom design.

1. Mix and Match Decorative Throw Pillows

Layering decorative throw pillows in multiple patterns is a fun and low-cost option for decorating a teenage girl's bedroom. Mixing and matching decorative pillows featuring funky patterns introduces an exciting design element for a unique look. As an added bonus, the teen can quickly change the look on a whim without spending a fortune.

  • Shop for a reversible comforter, duvet cover or quilt to get two looks for the price of one. If the teen grows weary of the same bedding design, she can mix things up by flipping the piece over.
  • One of the main colors in the duvet/comforter should match the bedroom wall colors to ensure a good blending of the décor.
  • Select throw pillows in a mixture of patterns and colors that coordinate with the top bedding layer in a fun and funky way.
