To rethink the decoration of a teenager’s room, it is enough to proceed in stages. First you have to look at the walls, then maybe change the place of your bed – and possibly the matching covers, blankets and cushions. Finally move the furniture, if necessary replace it. Then add storage areas. Before you end up equipping yourself with accessories. The idea being that your room or that of your teenager is the exact reflection of her personality.
1 – Choose a color palette
Before you begin to imagine the staging of your room, choose a color palette. Certainly choose a color that you like but make sure that you will not get tired of it quickly. And then, you probably want a cool and fun room for you or your teenager, but don’t forget that it’s fashionable to find sleep there! Do not choose shades intended to energize you, rather to soothe and relax you.
For a feminine room, opt for soft wall colors and brighter colored accessories. For a relaxed vibe, choose to combine a dark blue or purple with a white or cream. Be daring by betting on the black, white and red trio or on a tropical vibe that mixes bright pinks and deep oranges.
What works well in general are fairly light tones on the walls and floor and hints of bright colors here and there given by objects that come to refine the decoration (a cushion, a candle, a carpet, etc.) . You can also completely paint one wall in a fairly bright color, but not on all four walls, it could quickly become heavy.
You can find inspiration online, using sites like Pinterest, reading design magazines, visiting home goods or furniture stores, or even watching TV shows that are about decoration and design.
2 – Highlight a point in the room
Do you have a lot of elements to combine, a lot of furniture? Do not be discouraged ! Choose an element or a place in the room, for example a corner that you can bring out with color – paint or wallpaper. You create a point that calls attention. Thus the rest can merge into a harmonious unity.
If you have a small space but a big personality, you can also make a giant mural or opt for an exaggeratedly large decoration. It can be a wallpaper, a wall decal or a collection of frames of different sizes. The main thing is that all this does not encroach on valuable floor space.
3 – Invest the ceiling
The ceiling is a great place for your teen to really ‘get loose’ – abstract paintings, posters or even glow-in-the-dark stars are all great options that make the ceiling an interesting and personality-packed part of the room. bedroom.
4 – Hang a poster, a poster, a painting
On the wall that you have just painted, hang an element, for example the poster of your favorite film or music group. Look for visuals that will respond harmoniously with their colors and styles to those of your wall and your bedspread. To make a poster more elegant, place it in a frame or hang it with wire instead of just taping or nailing it to the wall. And not too much: limit yourself to one large element per wall or two smaller ones placed separately.
5 – Hang pictures
For an even more intimate touch and to personalize your walls, frame and hang some of your favorite photos of your friends and family. Possibly buy a bulletin board and stick photos, drawings and memorabilia. You can also use a small magnetic board or whiteboard to hang pictures and jot down notes and thoughts. If you’re not too excited about the cork, personalize the board by covering it with a fabric, which you can staple to the back. Or you also have the option of painting an entire wall or part of a wall with magnetic board paint. You will be able to write messages and put up photos or posters without damaging the wall.
6 – Create a cocooning space with rugs and cushions
Get a soft rug and throw pillows to create a cozy space, unless you have room for a comfy chair or sofa. You can compose a comfortable reading corner by adding a lamp to brighten up the space.
7 – Add a mirror
Do you want to choose a great outfit every morning? Hang a mirror in your bedroom. In addition, it will make it more spacious. You can place it on the back of the door or on a closet door.
8 – Think about the light
Hang string lights to add a soft glow to your room. Use them to decorate a plain wall or add soft lighting to your bedroom. You can create a somewhat designer shape from the garlands themselves or simply string them to a wall with tape and thumbtacks. Run the lights up to your headboard for easy reading or adjust them to the upper part of your room.
9 – Install storage spaces
Think organization first. The life of a teenager is full. We take things out and then put them away. Your room must remain tidy so that you can find everything. Especially if your space is small. You can choose hanging shelves to add storage options. If you’re short on desk or closet space for pictures, knick-knacks, or books, this is an ideal solution that’s both aesthetically pleasing and practical. Nothing prevents you from making them rather than buying them ready-made in a store. Either way, keep your life organized and in the right direction: no to too much clutter!
10 – Let nature in
Bring nature into your teenage girl’s room: decorate it with plants. Even rooms without natural light can accommodate plants, just ask a professional who can advise you.
