8 Essentials Items For The Teenager's Bedroom

Decorating a teenager’s bedroom can be tough. On one hand, they want a grown-up feel to their room but also a space that fits with their needs and wants at that time. They need a bedroom that matches the different pressures placed on them, from homework to entertaining their friends. But what are today’s essential items for the teenager’s bedroom?

Teenager's Bedroom

#1 Flexible display area

There are all kinds of gimmicks that teenagers love and one is an area where they can display the important bits and pieces – and change them when they want. From small photos of friends to tickets for events, a display area is a must.

#2 A study spot

Perhaps not their most favourite part of their room but essential, nevertheless. A quiet place to study is easily created with a small desk and a comfortable desk chair.

#3 Layers of light

No teenage bedroom is complete with layers of different lighting for them to use at different times. From a desk lamp to a string of LED lights, they add colour, warmth and details.

#4 Blackout blinds

Sleep is important to the teenager hence staying in bed for so long! On a serious note, however, blackout blinds are a must for the teenager to be able to get the sleep that they need during these important years.

#5 Storage

Storage for toys is one thing but with a teenager, they need storage on many different levels. Closed storage for clothes is obvious such as chest of drawers and a sliding wardrobe but within them, you need to make sure there is plenty of shelving and space for things, from books to their favourite bits and bobs. Encourage simple storage solutions with baskets and tubs with the things they want people to see on display.

#6 Clothes, clothes, clothes!

If there is one way that teenagers express themselves during these formative years it is with their choice of clothes. And they usually acquire quite a lot! An awkward space in the bedroom, such as under the eaves, can soon become a wardrobe with a fitted, bespoke piece of furniture that they will use for many years. From hanging space to shelving, there are many options for the interior of the wardrobe and with sliding doors, the space in the room is not compromised either.

#7 A hangout zone

If there is space in the bedroom, a hangout or social space is ideal. Add a sofa or comfy small armchairs, along with large floor cushions, rugs and throws and instantly, your teenager has a place to sit with friends. This makes a great place to add layers of light too.

#8 A digital zone

A lot of ink has been spilt on the dangers of social media and other online channels for young people, one of which is an obsessive addiction that can take over every minute of their waking day and night. A digital area in the room encourages better digital habits – in other words, switching the laptop, the tablet and the phone off. It also means fewer arguments over lost chargers…
