Transitioning from a kid to a teenager isn’t an easy task to undertake. Providing them a safe space in their room to relax and unwind at the end of the day is a priority. Transition them into an updated room that doesn’t feel childlike anymore but more adult. Take their unique taste and style into consideration and allow them to help design the space. Allow your teenager to save money in a teen banking account so that they can purchase special additions to add to their space. These are a few trends to try for your teenager’s room.
Purpose and Function
Their room is more than a place for sleeping. Teenagers walk the line of adult and child; they’re figuring out their independence. A teenager’s room needs to provide purpose and function. They need places to study, hang out with friends, and sleep. Some fantastic furniture pieces serve multiple functions. Bed frames with drawers underneath or a shelving unit with a hideaway desk are a couple of examples.
Bold Wall Designs
Most of the best designs for teens are those with bold, high-energy colors. Decorating a singular wall makes a significant impact. A few ideas for the single wall:
- Wall decals—decals are fabulous because they are easy to remove without damaging the walls
- Different color paint
- Graffiti wall
- Chalkboard paint
- Fun wallpaper
Their room is a space for relaxing and lounging, whether with friends, siblings, or alone. Throw in a fun, comfortable chair, a giant beanbag chair, plush bedding, or throw pillows. They want to feel safe, comfortable, and cozy.
Invest in Storage
Because teens spend a lot of time in their room, you want to reduce most clutter. Help them out by providing storage options that are functional and match their personality. Try to stay clear of boring storage. Find ottomans with storage or unique bookcases or shelves. Invite them to brainstorm ideas with you or come along shopping.
One of the best things you can do as a parent who’s giving a teenager’s room a makeover is inviting them in on the process or giving them the reins and offering guidance along the way. If you get stuck, refer back to great trends to try for your teenager’s room.
