Give your teen’s a room they would love to hang out in, add life to your teen’s room by simply using colors that exist by adding modern themes, accessories and furniture.

Bring all these décor items to their room with amazing wall art, furniture, and display decorative items that really are thematic.

They will be really surprised how they can transform their room with items they love, while still using the old bones of their original room. Plus, they will love you for this.

While the traditional colors for girls and boys bedrooms are pink and blue, different shades of these color will help add in the maturity to your teenager’s room. For boy’s room, instead of just painting it all baby blue, pair up the color with more modern royal blue or any other dark color they would like to add in. you can always add natural browns to create a rustic and more mature, masculine room.

For teenage girls however you can pair pink with fuchsia, hot pink, black or chocolate brown to create a modern twist on your daughter’s room. If your teenage for example is unable to decide the right color for her or his room then the best option is to go for gender neutral colors such as purple, orange or green. These can be a wonderful option. Also try to choose more mature patterns for the beddings and window treatment.

Have you ever visited a thrift store or a used sporting equipment store lately? They are literally gold mines for your teenager’s room. A very creative room can be made out of the old surf-boards, sporting equipment, and even decorative pillows and bedding from second-hand stores. The school lockers are painted in whimsical colors and it creates decor that they can relate to, looks awesome, and now creates new organization.

Try to help them make a very creative space they will enjoy. From adding different cultures and mature colors to re-purposing everyday items, they may forget the room which used to be theirs. Your teens are old enough to make their own decisions so it would be better if you ask them what they’d like to see in their room. While you might not agree on each and every design detail, there is always a happy medium available. Help your child love their corner of the world in your home. Do not make them hate it.
