Adolescence is a transition from childhood to adulthood. Generally, in the age range of 12-21 years, teens seek identity and no longer want to be considered as a kid. That’s why in adolescence they usually tend to change the style to look more mature than before.
One style that tends to change is the style of the bedroom. The style of the teen bedroom is different from the child’s bedroom style. Instead of highlighting many of the ornaments and themes to be appealing, teenage bedrooms typically feature a side of maturity in terms of color selection and decoration.
During this transition period, teenagers often become their own personal desires. In fact, sometimes become pickier in various things. For example clothing, food, gadgets, choosing friends, and so on. When they were children, most of them liked the decoration of rooms with various cartoon characters, toy cars, and others. But, after children start growing up, their fondness for cartoons and toys began to be abandoned slowly.
For this reason, some important tips and tricks are needed when designing a bedroom for your children who are growing up into a teenager. No need to linger, let’s look at the following description;
Combine Multiple Functions in One Bedroom
Teenagers usually prefer to stay in their rooms. They want all their belongings placed in their bedroom. This makes the bedroom seem like a library, entertainment area, work area, study room, and anything they can think of. They will even bring the pool into their room if they can. So, consider how you can combine different functions for teens’ bedrooms by making the most of the available space.
Utilize Space Smartly
If your child’s bedroom is small, you may consider using a double deck bed where the lower part can be used as a study area while the top is a sleeping bed. You can also take advantage of space-saving storage like a closet. If the room is large, you get more opportunities to express your creativity. Take advantage of the room smartly.
Vibrant and Bright Colors
Choose vibrant and bright colors. The use of color can be done by combining various colors or with multi-color and can also attach the color block. Pink is usually used for girls ‘bedrooms while blue is for boys’ bedrooms, but not forever like this. Teenagers can choose colors for their bedrooms depending on the color they like.
Accents on the Wall
Patterns also play a role when decorating a teenager’s bedroom. It can be used in creating an accent on the teen’s bedroom wall. Besides that, it can also be used for ceilings or in other parts according to your creativity and children. There are also those who use patterns for bed linen and paired with plain colored interiors, perfect combinations.
Do not let the walls of the teen’s room look boring. Minimalist bedrooms usually contain decorations such as framed pictures or posters. But teenage bedrooms are usually made decorative walls to express themselves. For example, put up their favorite movie posters or install their own graphic work. Wall stickers and wallpaper can also add to the life of a teenager’s bedroom.
Teens are usually happy to bring their friends at home. They will spend most of their time in the bedroom to study, do homework, watch movies or just do fun things together. Soft chairs or floor pillows can be placed in the bedroom so that everyone can sit comfortably. After that, you can save it if it’s not used.
You can help them by providing enough storage space in their bedroom. You can also try using storage places that are easily accessible and fun for them. Teens usually fall apart and store things in any place in a hurry. So, choose the storage space they like and make sure it’s also easy to use.
The furniture used in the teen’s bedroom must be of high quality and ensure all equipment is safe to use by them. Choose a bed that can be used for a long time. Don’t forget to make sure that the bed you choose is comfortable for the child’s condition. You can also use furniture that is still in good condition to be used by their younger siblings. You can also add a few sleeping bags if they invite friends to sleep for some time.
A teenage bedroom will look a lot more alive with accessories added to it. Let them choose the accessories they want to place in the bedroom. You can go shopping with your child to choose accessories that are cute and not too expensive. You can also try to make your own accessories for them. Crafts and artwork can also be a bonding moment that is good for you and your family, especially your child.
Creative and Cost-Effective
Creativity must be applied in every aspect of the design in the teen’s bedroom. Check also the available budget, so you can determine how much you will spend on decorating. You can still be creative without spending a lot of money. Make sure that the bedroom design matches the teen’s personality.
One of the trends of young people today is creating content. Be it Instagram, TikTok or something else.
