Simple Bedroom Designs for Teenage Girls

– For a teenager, a bedroom is more than just a place to sleep. It’s also a place for relaxation, study and socializing with friends. Considering all of these things when arranging a room for a teenage girl will result in a stylish and functional place of comfort for her to enjoy throughout her teen years.

Decorating Bedroom Designs for Teenage Girls

Bed

If she hasn’t been upgraded to an adult-sized bed yet, now is the time to do it. Choose a bed that can be an interesting feature for the room — graphic or floral fabric headboards with nail head detail, painted wood and painted metal scrollwork headboards are attractive and sophisticated options. For larger rooms, place the bed in a position opposite the door, so that it can be seen as a focal point as you enter the room. For smaller rooms, place the bed against a wall to create more space for other zones.

Storage

Teenagers can attract clutter. Ample storage in a teen’s room is a must if you want to keep that clutter to a minimum. Look for a nightstand with drawers. If space is limited, hang a shelf beside the bed for a lamp, a clock and room for a book. Bookcases or shelves are also essential, not only for a library of books, but for displaying collectibles, art or photographs. A desk with lots of drawers can help a teen girl keep school work organized, and her work space tidy.

Wardrobe

Having abundant clothing storage is an important consideration when arranging Bedroom Designs for Teenage Girls. Invest in closet organizers that include places for accessories and shoes, as well as for hanging clothes. If closet space is at a minimum, a small wardrobe can handle clothing overflow. Boxes and bins are great for storing off-season clothing and shoes.

Create Zones

If space permits, create a separate area for reading, working and socializing with friends. Choose fabric “pouffes,” or round ottomans, as they are soft in texture, can come in various colors and fabrics and are portable, functional and inexpensive seating options. A work desk can double as a vanity by hanging a large mirror over it. Choose a desk chair that is sturdy and comfortable.

Decorate

Work with your teen on the décor of her newly arranged room. Select a color scheme that has longevity. The bedding can be a jumping-off point for color that can be carried through the other elements of the room, like drapery, pillows and a rug. Display photographs of people and places that are important to her. Plentiful and effective lighting beside the bed, at the desk/vanity and overhead is important, and can be dressed up with colorful and textural lamp shades. A chandelier can add sparkle and glitz to the room.
