If you are a teenage boy who wants to redecorate his room so that it no longer looks like a little kid's room, you probably need some modern and cool ideas, as well as ideas that fit your personality. You may want to browse and brainstorm accordingly. Make sure whatever you decide fits into your or your parents' decided budget.

According to Rafter Tales, modern teens are more interested in politics and current events than in the past. If this describes you, decorate your bedroom in a political theme. Paint one or two walls completely black, and leave the others white. Alternating black and white walls complement posters, articles, photography and maps. Cut out articles from newspapers and magazines and frame them on your wall. Create a collage wall with maps, articles and current black and white photography. Hang a large map behind your bed's headboard. Use earthy tones for bedding and pillows. Clip a reading lamp onto your bed for those late nights studying for your history or politics classes. You can purchase these items online or at department stores. Don't forget to hang up posters of political icons from all over the world, both current and historical. Political icons could include Martin Luther King and Gandhi.

Beach Boy Surfer Theme
If you like surfing or simply like the beach, decorate your room to look like a surfer's haven. Paint the walls blue with a red stripe at the top as a border. Hang up surfing boards as decorations. Hang posters of surfers or people at the beach. Display blue and bright red bedding and accessories. Hang fishing nets as decoration, or use them as organisers. Place a bamboo mat at your door, and put up posters of palm trees.

Video Game Theme
Decorate your room as the video gamer's heaven. Hang up posters of and pictures of your favourite video games. Display video game figurines and memorabilia on shelves and on your desk. If your budget allows, display a flat screen TV on the wall for use as well as aesthetics. If you can't afford a flat screen TV, get permission to have a cheaper TV in your room as well as a video game console. Set up your own entertainment centre as well. Instead of any old chair, get a really cool video game chair that is close to the floor and includes speakers on the sides. Hang up old video game controllers as decorations. You can even hang up an old non-working console as a decoration. You can find bedding, pillows and even wallpaper borders of your favourite video game online or at department stores.

Favourite Band or Musical Artist
Decorate your room around your favourite band or musical artist. Black and white bedding, pillows and accessories complement this theme as they are generally associated with music. Turn rock band T-shirts into pillows, or hang them on the wall. Hang up a life-size or even wall-size poster of your favourite band or artist. Get an instrument at a pawn shop or on the Internet to display. The instrument does not have to work since it is for decoration. Decorate your room with concert tickets and news stories about bands.
