Teen Decor 101
Part of growing up means it’s time to say goodbye to the superheroes and princesses that once adorned your child’s room as they prepare to embrace a newfound maturity as a teenager. In this guide, we have easy updates for you to create a space where your teen can express his or her hobbies, artwork, interests, and more. Whatever your teen’s style may be, a few simple changes can revamp their room to be teen-approved.
Teen Bedroom Essentials
Your teen will look forward to study time in their personalized space. To keep them on task, create an area that has a desk with great storage options, a comfortable chair, and a good desk lamp. Don’t forget to let your teen add a few personal elements, like pictures and artwork, to make the space their own.
Childhood collections and artwork may not be on display anymore in your teen’s room, but that doesn’t mean your teen is quite ready to let go of these physical reminders of childhood either. Plastic bins with lids can easily be labeled and stacked in the closet for easy access to that stuffed animal collection.
When teens are up until the wee hours during the weekend, they will need a comfy place to sleep in ’til noon. Make their bed not only a place to sleep, but also a place to relax and listen to music or catch up on their latest blog post. Consider swapping a bunk or twin size bed for a full or queen size bed.
You don’t need a lot of space to create a lounge area. Teens just want a little privacy and a comfy place to chill. Create a cozy seating space with a small bench against the bed’s footboard or with a cushy rug with lounge pillows on the floor.
Teen Bedroom Tips
Allow your teen to find or create artwork that gives his or her room a burst of personality. This could include posters, prints, custom artwork, or their very own photos.
Mirrors not only help your teen get ready in a snap; they also create the illusion of space and increased lighting. Choose from a variety of shapes and sizes to best fit his or her needs.
Corkboards or magnetic boards allow teens to display their pictures, artwork, notes, and more without ruining their bedroom walls. A painted chalk wall or a magnetic primer wall is another option that gives your teen the freedom of creative expression.
Your teen’s bedroom is a space to showcase his or her personality. Let teens display their passions and interests proudly in the form of bedding and decorative accents. From favorite colors to beloved hobbies, create a theme around things they adore.
