Designing a teenagers room

When your son or daughter enters high school, an exciting phase begins. Puberty sets in, your child's environment undergoes significant changes, and even the daily routine becomes completely different.

It’s high time to transform that colorful children’s room into a sophisticated yet cool teenage room. How do you go about it? Luckily, it’s easier than you think.

Seek inspiration together

Involve your teenager in the process of decorating their new room. Not only is it fun to make it a parent-child project, but it also increases the likelihood that they will truly appreciate and use the space. The bedroom should be a place where your child feels at home.

You can find plenty of inspiration online. Create a Pinterest board, for example, and let your child add examples of rooms they love. Discuss the guidelines and budget together and search for suitable furniture and accessories as a team. Doing the shopping together will be the culmination of a well-prepared plan.

Find the right color

Color plays a crucial role in designing a teenage room. A teenager’s room should no longer have a childish look, but it shouldn’t feel too serious either. Feel free to remove the old wallpaper and move all the stuffed animals to the attic, but ensure there are enough playful and colorful elements. Opt for neutral colors as a base on the walls and add color through accessories. For instance, you can accentuate a gray wall with colorful curtains or a beautiful rug. Brighten up the bed with a lovely blanket and lots of cushions to sink into.

Create a pleasant study area

Depending on your household’s daily routines, the bedroom might also be the place where your child will do their homework. Therefore, it’s essential to create a space where they can concentrate well. Ensure there’s plenty of natural light or a bright lamp, and when choosing furniture, consider enough storage space for books, notebooks, and stationery.
