The change from child to teenager certainly is a big one and it is important that they have a bedroom that is more appropriate and a reflection of their personality. Stereotypically, teenager’s spend a lot of time in their bedroom and you will want this to be a space that they enjoy and feel is their own and no longer childish.
With this in mind, here are a few tips for revamping a bedroom for a teenager.
Let Them Choose a Style
Teenagers won’t want their parents to choose how their bedroom looks so you should always sit down with them and let them choose their own style. This will help them to feel more mature, ensure that it is a space that they enjoy spending time and also make sure that you do not get it wrong and feel their wrath!
Throw Out What is No Longer Needed
When kids reach their teens, their tastes and interests change drastically and they might find that they no longer want items like toys and games. It is a good idea to throw out/sell/recycle anything which they no longer want/need so that you can free up space and give them a fresh slate.
Fitted wardrobes from places like Hammonds are a great option for a teenager’s room because they can help you to maximize the space while also giving them plenty of space to store clothes and other items. Teenagers rooms are stereotypically messy so providing them space to store things is important for keeping the space neat and tidy.
Invest in New Furniture
You might also want to invest in new furniture which suits the new decorative style and also their needs. They may want to spend time in their room doing homework, playing video games, watching films and socializing so you need to have high-quality furniture that will allow them to do this, including a desk and office chair.
New Bedding for a Teenager’s Bedroom
You are also likely to find that they will want new bedding for their new space, especially if it is currently something childish like their favorite superhero or Disney film! Again, it is best to let them choose so that you don’t get it wrong and they can create a space which they feel is their own.
It is a major change when your child reaches their teen years and it is likely that they will want a bedroom which better reflects their personality and is less childish. It is important that you get this right as it is such an important space for them during these years and these tips will hopefully help you to revamp their bedroom to their liking.
We’ve decorated both my girls bedrooms over the last year and they chose everything. My teen’s room is half black and half bright green on the walls, not something I’d choose but she loves it! My youngest keeps wanting to throw out some of her toys but when it comes down to it she just can’t. hehehe x

Great post ! It’s picture perfect 👌🏻
We’ve started with changing curtains, lampshades and bedding which have already made a huge difference without us having to repaint 🙂

We just redecorated our teens bedroom and while he didn’t want new bedding we did repaint the walls, find him a comfy chair and he got rid of so much stuff I just could not believe it (since he’s always been my pack rat!). It was fun and ever since we finished he does spend most of his time in there now; he just LOVES it! #MMBC
