Creating the Perfect Bedroom for a Teenager
The teenage years are riddled with angst, accompanied with plenty of door slamming and wanting to be by themselves.
In some ways, the teenage years have not changed through the decades but what has, are their awareness of design, along with changes in what a teenager actually needs from the space that they call their bedroom.
Jokes aside about washing on the floor or stuffed under the bed, creating the perfect teenage bedroom is easier when you know how:
#1 Charging station
Needed by all teenagers is a safe place to charge and store their expensive electrical items. From the must-have smart phone to the smart watch, tablet, lap top and so on, every teenager needs a charging station or area in their room.
This way, you can keep an eye on chargers that could potentially over-heat and can also stop chargers from being temporarily ‘lost’ or, worse still, broken.
#2 Grown-up design
Children’s rooms tend to be decorated in primary colours. Teenagers no longer seek these colours but will instead look to make their own design statement.
A feature wall can be an effective compromise between the design statement that the teenager must have and what your budget can stretch too. From choosing dramatic coloured paint, to statement wallpaper, creating a fun, but ‘grown-up’ space is a must.
From masses of clothes to many pairs of shoes, the capsule wardrobe of a teenage boy or girl could explode from manageable piles to a mountain of clothes. Knowing which needs washing and what is clean becomes an art form.
Teenagers have short attention spans and have little, if any desire to spend time folding their clothes neatly and putting away. Therefore, simple, uncomplicated storage is the key. A fitted wardrobe with sliding doors, half hanging height, a few drawers and open shelving can be the space that they need to ensure that clothes are, at the very least, lifted off the floor.
#4 Work station
Teenagers also need quiet space to complete homework and study. Just like adults, having the right desk and an ergonomic chair can make all the difference as they swat for exams and complete all important projects.
This does not mean that the space has to take on the look of an office, however. There is a range of fun and funky chairs and desks, all of which provide support for backs and legs as teenagers sit at the desk either revising hard or gaming on their PC.
Like every other room in your home, the teenager’s bedroom needs to be welcoming and pleasant. It is also a space that will have many functions and thus, it needs be designed along versatile lines too.
