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.

Make sure he has a desk and a comfortable chair

He needs a space to do his homework after all. Even if you have little space, make sure that there will be an area where he can sit down, open up his books and laptop and study. Studying on the bed is the perfect excuse to close your eyes just for five minutes and realise that you’ve slept through the whole afternoon.

A good desk goes a long way

If he is a gamer, provide space for his gaming setup

In this day and age, there are kids who actually make money through streaming while playing games. Many people would argue that video games are not good for your child. Some would say, that they develop your kid’s imagination and help him relax after a long day at school. If you agree with the second statement, then honor your kid’s passion and setup up a gaming station for him. Trust us, you will be the world’s greatest parent.

Make room for change

Teenagers’ opinions, passions and hobbies often change. Which is why, you need to allow for change when your child outgrows his current passions. Whatever accessories you add that play up his hobbies, make sure they are easily removable or replaceable. Because once he outgrows them, he will want to remove them or replace them with new ones. That way, you will definitely save yourself time and money in the long run.

If you keep it simple, you allow more change and variations that he can make himself
