During the early to mid-teen years, children are beginning to grow and develop their own personal identity and a desire to revamp a private living space is likely to strike. Just as adults enjoy decorating after certain milestones such as recent marriage or a new baby, a teen may be celebrating an event like the beginning of middle school or high school or inner discovery.
However, this isn’t a time to stress over costs and hard work, it’s a time for a family to celebrate and embark on this next step toward maturity. Whether you’re an adult wanting to manage and help decorate a teen’s room, or a teen yourself, this five-step guide will help make the process of developing unique teen décor a more enjoyable and easier process.
The process of creating a new teen room décor takes effort from both the adult and the teenager. It is just as important that the teen is able to voice his or her opinions and artistic ideas for the new space as it is for the adult to voice concerns about color, furnishing, and whether it complements the scheme of the rest of the home. Some of the more important items to come to an agreement on are necessities like teen bedding, desks, and window treatments.
After establishing the teen décor necessities, it’s time to stretch what is left of the budget to its full potential. An easy way to make a room look completely different and add a unique spin is with a new coat of paint. From wall stickers and murals to fun pillows and funky bean chairs, accessories are an inexpensive way to turn a bland room into a dream space that can be enjoyed alone or with friends. Accessorizing is a fun part of creating unique teen room décor and more inexpensive products allow for experimentation with creativity and personality.
