Heavy Metal bedroom

My 11 yr old SS wants a bedroom decorated in heavy metal. He likes Disturbed, Metallica, Green Day, Godsmack, Creed.

I don't want to paint the walls black but I don't want them all white either. His bedroom is an upstairs room so it has some slanted walls halfway up.

  • You could put up black fabric instead of painting.. My son has his walls and ceiling so covered with posters and guitars that you can hardly see the wall anyway......

  • Maybe try a gray, it's not too dark and it's not white, and would also still coordinate with the heavy metal band theme.

  • How about grey? You could do it just on the slanted parts or pick a flat one and do it as an accent wall.

  • Give him ONE black wall and paint the others in a dark color like red or orange. Get posters of his favorite groups and put those up on the wall with some command strips (will come off without ruining the walls). Go with black bedding. Have fun with him.

  • I would ask him what color he is thinking. If he really wants black walls I would paint just one wall black. what about paingint the bottom half of that walls blakc, like up to the slant, then painting the rest a different color. I not sure i would do red, just me though, orange or even a blue might be good.

    Good Luck!

  • Let him one wall black for the black lights and some posters, then the others maybe grey
