With kids and especially teens spending most of their productive time in their bedrooms, it is really an absolute necessity to get your teen’s bedroom theme right. We are not saying just put together all the expensive stuff you find.
Spend some time in evaluating your child’s personality and add a few touches to make his or her room more appealing. Bedrooms are where they study, browse the internet, play on their videogame and indulge in other activities. It is a place where your kid spends most of his time, so make sure you get the ambience right. To be well prepared for this adventure, do your homework and already have a few ideas in place. However, be sure to involve the kid in this process of redecorating as well. It is their room after all.
It could be a fun project that you both could share. You might think that teens of today are all about expensive brands. You might just find out that they are more into personalizing their space than just putting together whatever they can find in a catalogue. Teen bedroom themes are often found to be individualistic and almost like an extension of the teen’s personality.
Maybe you act like an interior decorator with your child posing as a client. That way you could get all the low down on what plans they have for the room and yet at the same time make a few tactful suggestions to help get them started in the right direction. The first thing to finalize on is the color theme. Ensure that your child chooses a bright color, one that would uplift their spirits. It is often found that dark and dingy colors tend to be depressive and make people sad.
While paint can be the easiest way to give any room a makeover, ensure that you buy a share that is at least two or three shades lighter than the trial one. Once you get the paint color, you can go about choosing the fabric, furniture and other accessories. While you can have a say in the bigger items like the bed, the desk and the wardrobe, give your child a free rein in choosing the other smaller accessories. Teen bedroom themes are all about customizing bedrooms to reflect the teen’s persona. Help them along the way but let them have their say. After all, you are teen only once in your life!
