From chilling out to studying, teenagers spend a lot of time in their bedrooms, which is why it’s so important for a teens bedroom to be a space they love. We have both a teen girl and boy in our family right now and have some inspiration and tips to share to create the perfect bedroom for any teen!
Keep it cosy
The bedroom is ultimately the place we all go to relax and get some much-needed down- time, therefore your teen’s bedroom should be as welcoming and comfortable as possible. Try adding fleecy throws and cushions onto the bed, and think about creating a cosy corner with a soft beanbag chair somewhere in the room – the perfect way for them to unwind with a good book or a film!
Teenagers are always growing and changing their personal style and interests. While a teen may be obsessed with certain themes, characters or celebrities at 13, they will completely change their tastes in the next few years. Consider more neutral colours for the majority of the bedroom, allowing their style to shine through with smaller details such as patterned or glitter wallpaper or some lights draped across their bed frame.
In order for a teen to truly love their bedroom, it’s important that they have some control over how it looks. One easy way to do this is by hanging a cork board or cork tiles on one of the walls where they can create collages with images they like, and pin up things that are inspiring to them.
This is a cheap and easy option if you’re looking to introduce some DIY magic into the room, and bring out your teen’s artistic side while you’re at it.
As we know all too well, teenagers have a tendency to empty the entire contents of their wardrobe onto their bedroom floor. And leave it there. We absolutely advise you to invest in some good storage options for their bedroom to try to keep everything tidy and (hopefully) add some organisation.
Add some shelves
Shelves are a simple and stylish way to spruce up any bedroom, and having a few shelves up in your teen’s room provides the perfect spot for them to show off any keepsakes they collect along the years or display framed photos of important memories. T
Top tip: build the shelves in a fairly unreachable area of the wall to avoid them ending up a home for random clutter!
Make a study space
As the years go by, your teen will be studying more and more often and will need a dedicated space to get all their essays written and revision done. Find an area of the room away from distractions and create a mini study-space complete with a desk, chair and maybe a whiteboard for them to jot down any notes or to-do lists.
