Whether you’re a parent, aunt, uncle, or friend of a teenager (and perhaps you are all of the above), you probably have your fair share of experience in dealing with teen bedroom designs. From that first awkward pimply stage to the more recent video game-obsessed and selfie-addicted phase, you know it can be challenging to come up with ideas that appeal to teenagers while also being age appropriate. Because they’re usually small spaces and tend to follow certain patterns and trends, designing teen bedrooms is often easier than other types of interiors. But while they may be small, they are also filled with essential home furnishings that need careful attention to detail. They deserve special care because teenagers don’t stay teens forever. So whether you’re a parent trying to accommodate your child for their longest living years or an aunt or uncle getting ready for your upcoming visit from the little one, here are some great tips for creating a cozy and cute home-away-from-home:
A Cozy Bedroom is a Happy Bedroom
A cozy bedroom is a happy bedroom, and the best way to achieve this is by incorporating textiles. Remember that teens are more likely to be sensitive to textures because their sense of touch is still developing. That’s why it’s important to have soft, cozy furnishings and materials in all areas of the room, including on the bedspread, curtains, headboard, and rug. If you’re having trouble finding a comfy duvet or pillowcase set, there are several online stores that sell sets specifically for teen bedrooms. They have your favorite characters on them and are super soft. You can also take advantage of an online search for a pattern or color scheme that suits your child’s taste. Another tip? Make sure you have pillows in every color of the rainbow! Teenagers should always have access to their favorite colors. Cute pillows are also a great idea because they make any space more inviting and relaxing; they remind people of being home in their pajamas with nothing but dreams ahead. And if you need some tips on what types of pillows to get, just ask your teen! They would probably love to share their thoughts with you on how they want their room decorated–especially if it means they get the final say!
Start with the Bed
For many teens, the bed is the focal point of their room. We may not be able to understand it, but most teens are very particular about what they want in a bed. From mood-specific bedding sets to a specific color scheme, they want their beds to reflect who they are and what they love. Creating a space that is comfortable for sleep and provides ample storage for clothes and other personal items is crucial for making this room livable. And even if you’re designing for children who are still using a crib, keep in mind that the day will come when your child will want their own bedroom and will need somewhere to put them as well. If this isn’t something you have planned ahead of time, it can be tough to find out what to do with the crib when it no longer works as a bed. But by investing in baby furniture now that can grow with your child, you’ll be prepared when the time comes!
Go Bright and Go Big
One of the easiest ways to make a teen’s bedroom feel warm and inviting is to go bright. At this age, many teens are drawn to colors that are brighter than they have been in recent years. What better way to do this than by using light colors or high-contrast paint? Using light colors will also make it easier to incorporate your teen’s favorite color with some accents throughout the room (e.g., throw pillows, artwork, etc.). And don’t be afraid of going big! When designing teenage bedrooms, it’s important to remember that you want them to grow with the child so leave plenty of space for all those future hobbies and interests.
Add Some Cozy Comfort
Many teens are more likely to spend time in their bedrooms than other rooms in the house. This is probably because they have their own space where they can do whatever they want and express themselves however they please. So make sure to provide them with a comfortable place to relax, play video games, watch TV, or just hang out with friends. One of the most important things you can do for your teen’s bedroom is to make it cozy and comfortable. For years they will be spending their time there hanging out with friends, playing video games on their latest console, and enjoying some alone time reading or watching TV. Make sure you make them feel a part of your home by adding some pieces that would appeal to a teenager’s sense of style: colorful wall art or wallpaper, a well-stocked bookshelf complete with novels and gaming consoles, a favorite chair or sofa that looks like an art piece in itself (perhaps upholstered in brightly colored faux fur), and maybe even a beanbag chair for lounging on the floor while playing video games.
Incorporate Your Teen’s Favorite Things
By incorporating your teen’s favorite things, you’ll make designing their bedroom easier because it will be easier for them to express themselves. If they have a favorite sports team, include some of their memorabilia or décor in their room. If they love animals and have a dog or cat, then consider a bed with a pet theme. If they love video games, keep the walls bright with characters from their favorite game series. Adding these things to the design will help your teen feel like this is their space and make it more comfortable for them to hang out there.
