4 Tips for Teen Bedroom Decorations

by Rob Ellis, REALTOR® 08/11/2019

Teenagers have a different view on their bedrooms. While adults might see it as a room to sleep in, teens often see it as a place to escape from the world and crawl into themselves - a place they most confidently rule. Teens tend to be vibrant, social, and energetic, and so, their perspective of a bedroom is a space to hang with friends, play, do some work, and sleep. It's more like their small apartment. 

At some point, some teenagers find it hard to choose bedroom decorations because they are conscious of the latest trends, and they want something that appeals to their personality. If you're a parent looking for the best bedroom ideas for your teens, or you're a teen looking to give your space some unique touches, this post is for you.

Find a balance between childhood and adulthood

Teens are in a stage of progressive development where they have to part with some childhood memories and grow into adults. After a while, teens wouldn't love to keep the decorations of their childhood room because it might seem childish and 'ordinary.' There should be a balance here in determining things to keep from their childhood and ways to decorate the room so it fits the trends – remember teens are very conscious of that.

Treat the space as a multipurpose room

Teens love to be independent as much as possible, and their social lives won't be complete without friends, tastes, and defined personalities. A teen's room is not just a sleeping space; it doubles as a study area to get homework done, and a lounge to hang with friends too. Because of the multi-purpose requirements, it's necessary that the room is versatile. You can have a corner dedicated to studying just by a bookshelf. For the lounge, a bench and a few throw pillows should do the trick.

Respect their tastes

As mentioned earlier, teens love their independence and at this stage, they develop interests in many new things. One good way of making their bedrooms a livable space is to hang quotes of their favorite sayings, or posters of their favorite celebrities. If your teen is one that loves music, for example, guitars and musical wall decor will add to their personality statements.

Go for bold colors and designs

Adults love calm spaces, but teens tend to prefer vibrant colors depicting high energy. Ask your teen for their favorite colors and implement them into the design concepts.

I grew up in Los Gatos and lived there until 2003 when my wife and I decided to relocate to the South County to raise our 3 boys, now ages 22, 17 & 13.

I am an avid dirt biker and golfer and I love the close proximity of the recreational areas that the South County provides.

I have a passion for real estate and I absolutely love what I do. The friendliness and the down home demeanor of our tight knit community here in the South County allows my profession to blend in with my personal life. 

I view my clients as part of my family and I handle them as such. This combined with the South County’s sense of community is part of what makes our little area of the world so special.

It is my goal to largely work with the same clients repeatedly and also with their family & friends. For that to happen, I must provide a level of service and communication that is second to none.

I treat every single client and transaction with the utmost care and attention. I am enthusiastic, reliable and trustworthy…and I am fully committed to each and every one of my clients.

Simply put, I want to be your Realtor for life!
