Bedroom design ideas that both you and your teenager will love

Bedroom design ideas that both you and your teenager will love 

Getting the balance right in your teenager's bedroom can be tricky. On the one hand, you don’t want to squash any of their self-expression but you also want a space that gives them what they need and fits with the look you've chosen for rest of your home.

To help create a functional, yet personalised, bedroom that your child will love, team up with your teen and follow these steps.

Make organisation easy 

We all remember being a teenager, with clutter and clothes covering the entire floor. You'll want to make it as easy as possible for them to keep the room clear. To do this, introduce clever storage solutions for their belongings.

Try adding baskets or fitted cabinets like the ones available at Hammonds, so they can quickly organise their room while keeping everything the way they want. This means you can give them the freedom they crave, without having to worry about the mess in their room.

Enhance privacy 

We know you want to spend as much time as you can with your kids, but sometimes they'll need to kick back by themselves, plus they'll want their privacy. Giving them their own space is important.

An easy way to give them independence is to upgrade their curtains to blackout ones, so they can shut the light out completely. Alternatively, you could add a canopy around their bed, which will let them relax in a world of their own.

You can also create a designated chillout area. This is a great idea for your teenager's bedroom as it allows them to relax and feel comfortable in part of the home that’s just for them. Add an armchair or perhaps beanbags where they can read, swipe or play, so they can unwind in style.

Have plenty of wardrobe space

Children in their teenage years will often go through many different clothes as they look for the right style for them. This can lead to piles of clothing that end up stuffed into drawers and bundled into wardrobes.

One way to get things organised is to invest in wardrobe storage for your teenager's bedroom that can handle the growing number of outfits. The fitted wardrobe range from Hammonds offers plenty of storage options without taking up all of your child's bedroom space. Plus, these can be tailored to their tastes as an added benefit. Take the time to plan this with them so that they can take control of how their wardrobe works for both them and you.

Don’t be afraid of bold colours 

Whether it’s a teenage girl's or boy's bedroom, bold colours are a great idea for decorating and are as vibrant as they are, so don't shy away from them. Not only do these colours look great, but they can also help to boost your child's mood too!

If a bright hue on the walls is a bit too much for you, however, you can opt for a neutral tone and then add the bold colours in as accents around the room. This could be via blankets, cushions, bedding, lamps or even colourful furniture. However you decide to incorporate these hues, be sure to get your child involved so they can choose the styles they like too.

Make it their own 

Now that you've got the functional features of the bedroom out of the way, let your teen go wild and make the room their own. They'll be spending a lot of time in here, so it's vital they love it. Encourage them to add personal twists to their space and show off their hobbies or interests. This could be in the form of posters of their favourite band or a trophy cabinet from their sporting successes.
