You remember your teen years.
You're just starting to figure things out in life, you have mounds of homework to worry about, and you have to find a date to the big dance.

Stick To The Basics
Believe it or not, but some teenagers prefer simplicity.
They don't all want trendy posters or bright colors dominating their space.
For some teens, simple and easy does the trick.
Opt for laid-back linens and decorations and get creative with the storage space.
If your child thrives in calming, well-organized spaces, the right amount of storage will keep things clutter-free and aesthetically clean, allowing them to succeed.
A triple-tiered side table, built-in wall units, or floating shelves and hooks are all great ways to keep everything neat and clean.
Classic Pieces With A Youthful Touch
If you invest in classic, timeless pieces, you can repurpose them over and over again, each time bringing new life and personality to your room.
Even a classic bed frame can be used in a teen's bedroom, and with a little bit of creativity, tasteful accent pieces, and age-appropriate bedding, it will feel brand new.
Good lighting and tasteful decorations can also enhance the style of the bed.
Maximize Space With A Bunk Bed
The majority of teenagers will likely prefer to have their own space, but sometimes sharing a room is necessary.
If you have teenagers close in age that prefer to share a room, or if you don't have a room to spare, bunk beds are a great space-saving option.
If you have the means to do it, building bunk beds into a wall will open up space in the bedroom even more.
Even if you don't have two teens sharing a room, bunk beds are also a space-saving option if your teenager doesn't have another area to hang out in.
This utilizes space that would not otherwise be there if the bed was taking up floor room.
Pick A Theme
Just like throwing a good birthday party, decorating a room becomes much easier when you have a theme in mind.
And, you can do it without making it feel cheesy.
If your teenager loves the sand, sun, and surfing, you can turn surfboards into wall art and use a coastal color palette.
Incorporating a theme will allow your teen to express themselves, and you can do it without making it seem childish.
Build A Loft
If you love DIY projects, or someone in your home does, this could change the entire feel of your teenager's bedroom.
If you have the space, ability, and means to do it, you can make your teens' bedroom feel like a makeshift clubhouse complete with a loft bed.
Built-in storage and a desk will make it a practical workspace, and the lofted section at the foot of the bed will be perfect for unwinding or hanging out with friends.
Even if you can't have a loft, you can create a similar feel with a hanging hammock chair, plush area rugs, bean bag chairs, and floor pillows.
Give Your Teenager The Bedroom They Need
Teenagers are often complicated, complex, and unpredictable.
Luckily, their bedrooms don't have to be.
The teenage years are challenging, so every teen deserves a bedroom that lifts them up, calms them down, and makes them feel completely comfortable.
