Teen Bedroom Remodeling Tips

Teens often want to express their individuality in their clothing, music, hobbies, and yes; their bedroom. So it should come as no surprise when your teen decides he or she wants to remodel their bedroom, add more decorative touches, and possibly change the entire color scheme and theme of the room. Whether they have a specific theme in mind or simply want to change the colors or décor, you can help them without spending a fortune. Simple changes like new bedding and lighting, painting the walls, or adding area rugs will make a big difference in your teen’s bedroom.

Choosing a Theme


One of the most popular ways to remodel and decorate a teen’s bedroom is by incorporating a theme. Many teens want to use their own hobbies, ports, or other activities to help with the theme such as a teen boy who is into sports and likes on team’s colors specifically. Another popular option recently is the Paris themed bedroom for teen girls. The Paris Theme is pretty and sophisticates and depicts the streets and cafes of Paris, France. For this theme, the main colors will be cream and black, with a little pink added in. Vintage-style photographs of Paris on the walls, with a lamp or sculpture of the Eiffel tower, and a chandelier help bring a Paris themed room together.

Add Some Color


Another important aspect of remodeling your teen’s bedroom is by adding or changing the colors. This can be as simple as buying new bedding or lamp shades or choosing different decorative items. You can also go elaborate as changing the carpets or covering them with colorful area rugs, and re-painting the walls a brand new color. Just a little bit of color goes a long way in remodeling a teen’s bedroom, and many changes like rugs and window treatments won’t cost a fortune to transform your teen’s bedroom into a space they want to spend time.

Add Functionality


Don’t underestimate the power of function in a bedroom along with changing the style and décor. Small changes that won’t cut into your bedroom will make your teen happier and give you more to work as far as the color scheme or style. For example, if your teen lacks storage, choose large wall shelves or a bookshelf in their room for not only placing books, but old toys or collectibles, decorative accessories, and anything else they want on display. Adding a nice desk and chair for doing homework and somewhere to use their computer isn’t just a good idea but will encourage your teen to do work and study. It can be distracting doing homework kin common rooms of your home, so if they have their own desk, they will be more inclined to get things done.
