Decorate according to his passions
As every teenager, your child is probably pretty passionate about at least one thing. Whether it is skateboards, gaming, Star Wars, Avengers, sports – a room with a theme is important. If you don’t know what he is into, the easiest thing to do is ask him. Put up posters of his favorite characters, hang up jerseys of his favorite athletes, get puff chairs in the shape of a basketball, football or baseball, if he is into sports. You have so many options to play up his passions and you should definitely do it. After all, his room should be a representation of who he is and what he likes.

Refrain from using super bright colors
Bright colors might have been perfect for his room when he was seven or eight years old, not so much now that he is growing up. Instead of splattering bright vivid colors on the walls, keep it understated. What you can do instead is have colorful accessories, such as posters, throw pillows or even chairs or puff chairs. That way he won’t be embarrassed by the neon blue on his walls whenever he has friends come over. Plus, by refraining from using bright colors, you allow him more freedom if he decides to add his own elements to his room.

Create a relaxing nook
I mean, the definition of the word “nook” in the dictionary is “a corner or recess, especially one offering seclusion or security”. Nooks bring a special feeling of coziness. They are like a little space where you feel like you are completely isolated and safe. Creating such a nook for your child, therefore, creates the perfect space for him to relax, listen to music or read books. What’s more, If you don’t have a lot of space for a separate nook and bed, you can combine the two as shown in the picture below.
