4 Interior Tips For A Teen Bedroom

Styling a teen bedroom can be a difficult process – they’re indecisive, messy and generally don’t want you to make a big fuss. As a young adult, teens either want to style their bedrooms themselves, or not at all, which can be a daunting thought for parents and homeowners if you’re teen is let loose to do a DIY makeover of their bedroom. Here are some tips to consider when changing and styling a teen bedroom so it’s hip and cool, but also functional and relaxing.

You Need Storage

Teens are notoriously messy, so give them a whole bunch of storage options so they never have an excuse to have clothes lying on the floor again! Put cupboards and drawers in places you wouldn’t have thought of, such as underneath the bed or desk and hidden in the closet. Get creative and invent multiple storage solutions, especially if you’re working in a small space.

Think Ahead

As they age, it is only natural that teenagers want more independence and space from the rest of the family, so don’t create a bedroom space that cannot be changed easily. Versatility is key because a teen bedroom has a multiple of functions – it’s a sleeping quarters, a place to escape the rest of the household and an area to study, relax and hang out with friends. Help them make the most out of their space and don’t make anything too permanent so they can change it up as the years fly by.

Make It Fun

Most importantly, keep their bedroom fun. Generally speaking, teens like to have fun and express their personality with bold colours, artwork and posters and decor that represents their hobbies. Bring youthfulness into the room with a bright feature wall and incorporate some of their favourite things to spark creativity and positive energy. As teens regularly change their style, consider using wallpaper to make a statement because it is quick and easy to put up, and change if required. We love Ingrid + Mika’s Plus Sign (available here, pictured in feature image) wallpaper design because it’s classic, fun and goes with everything without making the room over complicated and bust.

Give Them Space 

Finally, let your teen make the majority of choices (at least the ones that aren’t so permanent!) so you can create a space that they generally love. It’s the one place in the family home that is entirely theirs, so create something that works for them, their interests and their lifestyle. 

These are just a few handy hints to make styling a teen bedroom a lot less complicated. Allow your child to explore their creative freedom when it comes to making the room work for them and styling it with their favourite colours and decor items.
