Decorating a Teen’s Room on a Budget
By Kim Gellman, owner of Artisticsensations.com
Decorating a teen room with fresh, hip products can be fun both for the parents and teens involved. There are a number of different ideas you can explore to produce a room your teen can enjoy, and at the same time, one that doesn’t break the bank.
One inexpensive way to update a room is to repaint it. Picking a fun, trendy color like orange or hot pink for a gal or royal blue, navy or red for a guy, can reinvent the entire look of a room.
If you are not a painter, wall art or wall stickies are a fun, innovative way to update a teen room. Wall stickies come with wall pockets which are great for holding pictures, discs, letters and other small items. Wall photo corners are the newest way to hold photos of your friends, or pics of your child’s own artwork – and are also easily removable. Modern Wall Sticker Art like trendy cupcakes or polka dots make walls jump out or choose from a range of pocket appliques for holding discs, photos, letters and personal items. Floral wall stickers can add a splash of color to walls.
Cool bedding or pillows are a nice way to improve a teen’s bedroom. If your budget doesn’t allow for a new bedding set, add a few pillows to change the entire look of a room.
Another creative way to bring change into a room is to refinish a vintage piece of furniture like a desk or book shelf. You can find unique pieces at garage or estate sales, then strip them and repaint them in the color of your choice. Or rub off some the paint with sand paper for a more rustic look.
Not the do it yourself type? Other easy ideas include:
- Letter accessories for teens rooms – fabric letters in your teen’s name or an initial of their last name;
- Hand-painted magnet boards to hang notes or pictures;
- A brightly colored chair or bean bag chair;
- A contemporary or trendy rug;
- Embellished telephones;
- Choosing a theme;
- Unusual towels;
- Modern personalized wall art with your teen’s name;
- Trendy Mirrors.
Whether you do it with a fresh coat of paint, a new set of bedding or pillows, or wall art – it is possible to change the entire look of a teen’s room on a small budget.
