A new school year is coming up, which means you and your kids are preparing to get organized. If your child is entering high school, he or she may be longing for a new space that walks the line between childhood and adolescence. It’s simple to create a room for your teen that is not only cool (to their standards), but also age-appropriate. Here are some easy tips to create a more grown-up look for your teen’s bedroom:
Create a lot of storage space
We already know teenagers can have a messy room, so utilizing and creating storage spaces in their room will help keep them organized. This can be items such as bed frames with built in storage sections, creating adjustable shelving, and labeling containers. Investing in a desk with storage sections can also be beneficial not only for the cleanliness of the room, but for their school work as well.
Make sure it is sleep-friendly
Teenagers need at least 8-9 hours of sleep every night; teens who are sleep deprived can suffer mood swings and drowsiness, which can impact their schooling and even their driving. Make sure he or she is getting the necessary amount of sleep each night by first eliminating technology from the room. Good luck, right? This includes computers, televisions, and gaming systems. Blackout curtains can also aid in giving your teen a better night’s sleep.
Redecorating your teen’s bedroom can be a great chance to bond with them. Decorate together and make sure their vision comes to life. Embrace bolder colors, and contrast it with unique styled wood floors. Wood floors will also be easy for cleaning; regular maintenance and upkeep is simple and won’t require too much deep cleaning. If your teen would like neutral colored walls instead, you can add color in the form of rugs, paintings, or any other small decor items.
Your teen probably has their own unique style they would love to showcase. Decorate the room with pieces of art that he or she picks out. It is easy to get cheap paintings from vintage shops or thrift stores. These stores can also have vintage frames which can also bring life to the room. If your teen does their own artwork, consider hanging up their own creations on the wall.
