A teen girl’s bedroom is as much her fashion statement as the clothes she wears and the music she listens to. That’s why parents should let their daughters do most of the decision making when it comes to styling their room.
Naturally, there are some things that parents should help out with and supervise, like choosing furniture. It is very important to get a comfortable bed and mattress so that children wouldn’t damage their spines and necks when they should be getting their good night’s rest. Though teen girls don’t really know much about choosing furniture, they could choose their favorite furniture designs on shop4furniture.net or some other quality furniture providers and parents could work out the technical details.
Once that is taken care of, girls should go ahead and create a bedroom that will show all their friends their creative and stylish side.
Never-ending fun with walls
Teen girl’s bedroom walls can express so much of their owner’s persona. They can be featuring:
1) Colour blocking paint job
2) Chic, retro wallpaper
3) A wonderfully painted image (if the girl can paint nicely, she could do it herself)
4) Interesting wall stickers (words, images or both)
5) Pictures in nicely crafted photo frames
6) DIY projects like: photos hanging from a string, attached by clothespins
7) Frame posters of her favourite actors, singers, etc.
One colourful detail is enough
What usually attracts the most attention in a room is either a big, unusually shaped object or something with unusual or bright colours. It is enough to have fascinating curtains or colourful bedspread, and the bedroom will already look smart, even if everything else is pretty ordinary. Give Ginger and May a visit for cool girls bedspreads.
Even if teen girls are past playing with toys and dolls, they can serve as a very nice decorative element, especially if they are hanging from the wall in an interesting looking “carrier”.
Even a pretty simple chair with a charmingly patterned slipcover can dominate a room and make it look special. Of course, nice bookshelves with lots of fun books, little cactuses on the desk, photos and wooden sculpture all add to the image of a girl who loves pretty details and knows how to tastefully organize them in a small space.
Show some temperament!
Pink, red, yellow and orange are usually the colours that show temperament. Mixing them with bright green or turquoise can create quite an effect in a girl’s bedroom.
Other than bright colours and matching seemingly unmatchable shades, there is a striped pattern or animal print that is quite popular these days. Girls who are not afraid to experiment with patterns and colours should definitely try to create an “animal-print” bedroom that will certainly grab everyone’s attention.
Other things to consider
Though teenagers rarely consider the health element when choosing decoration for their room, parents should advise them on the following:
1) Very bright, “shocking” colours could affects one’s ability to peacefully rest
2) Unusually shaped chairs could hurt the spine if it’s used for long
3) Stuffing a room with too many objects will make it difficult to dust and clean, which could cause allergies
4) TV is usually not a good idea in a bedroom
Good luck creating the smartest teen bedroom on the block!
