Children grow up far too quickly. Before you know it, they need their own space – one that fits their personality, that isn’t too childish (or too old) and won’t need updating after every birthday.
So, we’ve put together some handy tips on how to decorate your teenager’s bedroom to help you create a space that suits all their requirements and reflects their age.
Add a pop of colour
Greys and blues are ‘in’ right now and are great colours to inject a grown-up feel. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t accessorise with colour. For example, a colourful ladder shelving and feature rug can make the space stylish and refreshing.
Create a space they want to work in
Homework might not be their favourite ‘pastime’, but working in an inspiring space will help soften the hardship.
Think lifestyle blogger – a white desk with a comfy white chair and colourful cushion, floating shelves for storage and pastel coloured accessories. It adds up to getting the job done – without the arguments.
Give them the gift of space
Your teenager’s bedroom may not be the largest room in the house but that doesn’t mean you can’t create more space.
Remove radiators and install underfloor heating. This instantly creates more wall space and allows them to control the temperature to their needs. Purchase a divan bed for extra storage and fit some shelves to remove clutter.
