Being a teenager is all about living life, having fun, and following the latest fads. Decorating for teens should allow them to express themselves and design a space that is a reflection of their unique personalities. Hopefully your teenager's room will make you happy too.

The best way for parents to satisfy the style needs of teens is to listen to what they want in their room, and find ways to make it work in the longer term.
Does your kid want to paint their walls black or neon pink? Let them! Changing a paint colour can be a bit of a pain, but it is better to pick your battles elsewhere. Paint, wallpaper, bedding, and accessory choices are the easiest ways to give your teenager ample creative control.

Be sure the furniture pieces you both choose will last a long time. Modern shapes and well-constructed beds, dressers, and desks can transition from teenage lair, to college, and beyond.

Decorating a bedroom is personal, so let your kids make it their own. Of course, you are going to have to enter these rooms (if you dare!), so easy-to-use storage solutions are a must. Encourage your kids to keep in mind that the some of this stuff will be following them to their dorm.

A bedroom is a sanctuary; make sure everything your son or daughter will need to do in the room is considered. A desk for homework and an area for kicking back and relaxing are key. Have fun, be cool, and remember…they aren’t teenagers forever!
