Inspiring Ideas for a Trendy Teen Room

The teenage years are a special time in any child’s life. It’s a period full of discovery – from forming life-long hobbies and interests to discovering relationships and enjoying the first real taste of independence.

Parents can do many things to assist their kids through this several-year transition into adulthood, but one of the best gifts they can give their teen kids is a place that reflects their own unique personality.

Here are four ideas for a hip teen bedroom

TUFFED HEADBOARDS – A teen’s room should be more mature than a child’s, but not quite completely adult. Choose décor options that blend the two together – such as a fun headboard. Tufted headboards are a classic style that is both mature and playful, and can even be homemade.

BRIGHT PAINT COLORS – One of the best ways to liven up a room is to add a splash of color – and what better way to do so than with a fresh coat of paint? Let your kid pick out their favorite hue. Create an accent wall, or go crazy and paint the whole room.

STARRY CEILING – While the concept may sound a little juvenile, a night sky ceiling can actually provide a great touch to your teen’s room. Paint the entire space dark blue and adhere tiny shining stars. You could also create the same effect with a few strands of twinkle lights behind a sheet canopy.

CHALKBOARD WALL – Let your teen cover their wall in memorable quotes, lyrics to favorite songs and other non-permanent graffiti. Easily turn any space of wall into a chalkboard with a can of chalkboard paint.

One last piece of advice – when incorporating a special hobby or interest into a design, do so carefully. While your son’s iPod may be chock full of Bob Marley or your daughter has developed a penchant for sparkling vampires, either of these phases could end at any moment.

Adolescence is a time of transition, so make sure the space is open for these changes.
