Top Tips for Decorating Your Teenagers Bedroom
Designing a teenager’s bedroom can often be a challenging task, with trends constantly changing and your teenager experimenting with styles and phases, but there are a handful of ways in which you can create the perfect space for them to relax, do work and chill without sticking to specific trends or phases. The key to achieving the perfect teen bedroom is to include essential pieces that they’ll need for their everyday routines, as well as making it personal and comfortable for them to live in.
You quite often find that teenagers become independent very fast, so designing a room that helps them to express themselves is perfect. Give them a choice with the colours used to decorate their room, as they’ll be spending the majority of their time in there. Stick to one or two colours for the core colour choices, and then you can look at introducing additional colours through furnishings and accessories. The great thing about choosing one bold colour is that you can then emphasise the style through key pieces that will add character to the room.
Key Furniture Pieces
The difference between the bedroom you once had in your child’s bedroom, to the furniture that is now essential in your teenager’s bedroom is very big. Whilst you always need the basics such as the bed and a bedside table, you now need to consider introducing a larger wardrobe, chest of drawers, desk and even additional drawers for storage. By including these key furniture pieces in your teens bedroom, you’re providing them with essential storage, as well as giving them space to do their work and grow up with a room that will last them for many years to come. For added character, you could even look at introducing beautiful focal points such as an oak bookcase, a bold mirror or even some bright storage boxes to keep things modern and stylish.
It’s a well-known fact that teenagers are, often, untidy and seem to gather a lot of ‘stuff’. Providing your teenager with plenty of essential storage will ensure they have enough space to store their things, as well as keep their room neat and tidy. Throughout their teenage years, your teenager will probably collect a lot of ‘stuff’ and need somewhere to store it all. One of the best ways to introduce storage is through items such as under bed storage boxes, as well as placing storage boxes in places such as the wardrobe or even under the chest of drawers if you have access. You can then introduce storage in the desk, which would be ideal for all of their school work or other items that are similar, helping your teenager stay organised and neat.
Personality and Character
Your teenager’s bedroom is a space for them to express their personality and style, whilst being able to relax and wind down in their own privacy. Designing your teenagers room with personal features is a great way of making the room unique to your teenager and creating a space they can be proud of and feel comfortable in. Items such as photographs of them with friends or family, posters that interest them and even artwork that they find attractive or impressive. These additional touches will also add a great deal of character to the interiors and make it a little more personal to them.
