Transform a Tween’s Bedroom into a Cool Teen Den

As tweens move into their teen years, their tastes in style and interests change quite radically. So, it’ll come as no surprise when they ask for a bedroom makeover to match their evolving personality. It’s also good to know that transforming a child’s bedroom into a cool teen space doesn’t have to break the bank.

In this blog post we’ll show you that, with a little creativity and some budget-friendly ideas, you can create a room your teen will love without spending a fortune. Here are 5 ways to achieve this transformation:

1. Change up the colour

One of the easiest ways to upgrade a bedroom is to introduce a new colour scheme. Explore different colour options that resonate with your teen’s preferences. Whether it’s a bold accent wall or an attention-grabbing piece of furniture, a fresh coat of paint can make a significant impact. This Summer, we welcome back the ‘Colour is on Us’ promotion where you can get our in-house chalky paint as part of your purchase, find out more in-store.

2. Get arty and Creative

Consider adding some DIY wall art or posters that reflect your teen’s interests, whether it’s their favourite bands, quotes to live by, topical anime characters, sporting heroes or artistic designs. This will add a personal touch and showcase their personality. There are plenty of resources online to get your creative juices flowing!

3. Replace their childhood bed with something more suitable

If your teen is still sleeping on a single bed or bunk beds, now would be a good time to invest in a new bed – it’s so worth the investment and becomes a piece of furniture that your teen can take with them into adulthood. We have a huge selection of beds as well as mattresses, so it’s easy to find something that suits their next phase in life, and their style. Find pedestals to match the overall look while also ensuring there is enough storage space for their tech, schoolbooks and other paraphernalia.

4. Create a cosy hangout spot

Teens love to have a designated hangout area in their room where they can relax, read, game, listen to music or chat with friends. Incorporate a cosy seating nook by adding some floor pillows, bean bags, or a comfy old lounge chair draped in fabrics that fit the new theme. This space can also serve as a study corner, enhancing the room’s versatility and functionality.

5. Shed some light on the matter

Lighting plays a crucial role in setting the ambiance of a room and this is important to teens. String lights and fairy lights are inexpensive and can instantly add a magical and cosy feel to any space. Drape them along shelves, or around a corkboard to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. They’re not only functional but also add a touch of whimsy to the overall design.

Doing these 5 things to transform your teen’s bedroom into a fashionable hangout, will likely make you a popular parent. However, remember that the most vital thing you can do when you begin the makeover, is to collaborate with your teen throughout the process. By including them, you can bet they will take care of their new and stylish space because it is a place they can call their own.
