Decorating Your Teenage Girl's Bedroom
A teenage girl's bedroom is her castle. So taking the time to sit with her and discuss a plan to come up with the perfect bedroom theme. The first thing you need to do is to measure the width, length and height of the room. Then decide which furniture you want to keep and which you want to replace. Then next thing you want to do is to spend a Saturday afternoon cleaning out the entire bedroom. Donate stuff she no longer wants and throw away stuff that isn't any good. Or you can have a garage sale.
Now it's time to go shopping for furniture. The first piece of furniture you want to pick out is the bed. If you cannot afford to purchase a new bed, try repainting the old bed and add stenciling to the headboard. You can add a white or pink canopy if you want. Next you want to add a chair in the bedroom for her friends to sit. A small loveseat or some bean bag chairs will suffice.
Deciding on a theme is an important part in decorating your teen girl's bedroom. A theme could be based on several things such as her favorite hobby, musical artist, sports or animals. Or she could go for a more basic look like retro or Victorian.
When deciding on where the furniture will be placed in the room, make sure that the room size fits the furniture. For example, you don't want a king size bed in a small room. Your daughter will also need space for homework and putting on her makeup. Another thing that will save space is using organizers. Closet organizers, under the bed organizers and 5-drawer organizers will all save space and keep things organized.
Painting walls is a big project. You need to make sure that you cover the flooring and furniture before starting the painting. You want to choose colors that match the theme you have going on, if any.
Accessories are also important in decorating the bedroom. A wall shelf makes a great place she can display photos of her friends and family. Also a book shelf works great for all her romance books. Adding a lamp to a nightstand is a special touch. You may also want to add a lamp to her desk so she has proper lighting to do her homework. Other nice accessories include a vase filled with fresh flowers, a large bulletin board attached to the wall to attach notes or a calendar, a stand up mirror and some special touches such as fancy light switches or funky drawer pulls.
Using any or all of these special touches will make any teenage girl's room special.
