DKOR’s interior design team has designed nurseries and children’s bedrooms for many of our clients. Recently, we had the opportunity to work with two teenage girls to design their personal teen spaces. These young girls had outgrown their childish rooms and were ready to have spaces that reflected their individuality and changing needs.
Teens spend the most time in their rooms and the spaces need to be cozy and functional. Our top interior designers share tips to help you create a unique teen bedroom style through key decorative elements. These budget-friendly tips are perfect for refreshing a young teenage boy or girl teen zone.
Try Colorful Wall Papers instead of Paint
Although a new paint color is an easy change, wall coverings are the new decorative option we recommend trying. Some products out there are easy to install and easy to remove. There is also an immense amount of options in prints and patterns that can get your teen involved in the process.
Available on an immense variety of designs, patterns and textures wallpaper provides us with endless possibilities to dress up and give our walls a fresh and beautiful look.
Some of the super cool wallpaper designs are available in textures or patterns that are a perfect opportunity to create an accent wall on a teenage girl room. Opt for a vinyl material which is durable, easy to clean, and more likely to be cost effective.
Add Fun Light Fixtures
Adding a fun or eye catching light fixtures is always recommended as the best decorative option when remodeling any room. Most light fixtures are so simple to install and can instantly add a pop of color to a teen space. If you’re space isn’t ready for a light fixture opt for a fun and functional desk lamp to brighten up the space and complement the existing room décor.
If you are feeling more adventurous you can ask an electrician to install a pendant in place of a table lamp over the nightstand for a personal and youthful touch. Try to select a simple option that works well with the style of the room. You will be surprised to see how even little fixtures can make a big statement.
Quick Fix with Fresh Bedding
The easiest update to any growing teen bedroom is the bedding. Toss away any bedding from their childhood years and start with fresh linens that have a touch of sophistication. A well-dressed bed is a must when remodeling a teenage girl bedroom as this is the focal point of the whole room and their lounging area.
You can choose from so many comfortable bold patterns and color combinations. Keep with a similar color scheme in the room and use lots of sleeping and lounging pillows. This small change can give the room a whole new personality.
