Even though your teen may want to be an adult, they aren't quite there yet. But you can help make the transition from teen to pre adult with just a few furniture switches and new bed spreads. You can make this design work for your teen and all the way through the high school years.
Privacy is crucial to your teen's existence!
Designing private areas within a teen's room can help encourage good study habits, positive social behavior and parental trust. Use curtains to create private rooms, study/reading areas and of course, a bed canopy. Locate a desk and chair in an alcove, closet, or corner of a room. Sub-divide it with partitions to create the perfect homework retreat.
Bright colors are an essential to any teen's room. Many teens still love kids stuff and probably will until college. Bright color combination like green/blue, black/yellow, red/white and yellow/grey add a sense of openness and depth to confined spaces, yet still can draw closeness and create well defined areas.
Accenting one wall with a bold color and making the rest mute draws attention to that space. Use that as a focal point for the study/desk area. This can help encourage good focus and awareness while working on schoolwork.
Theme rooms like cartoon characters, Disney stuff, balloons, hearts, stars ect should be avoided. These can easily bore and tire teens and preteens alike
