The Bedroom… A Teenagers Solace

So, teenagers – they can be full of energy or a little lazy, and their bedrooms often become the center of their world. As a parent or guardian, it’s super important to create a space where they feel at ease, can be themselves, unwind, and get inspired.

At DAY & KNIGHT, we’re all about making custom-made furniture that not only meets your teenager’s needs but also shows off their personality. Let’s explore the top 10 ideas for a teenager’s bedroom that will make them feel right at home.

1. A Splash of Character:

To decorate your teenager’s room, start by researching and creating a mood board of their favourite aspects. You could show them cool room ideas from Instagram to help get them started, like these examples…

Modern teenage bedroom design with grey feature wall, white wall storage, large white gloss desk and integrated bed
Contemporary teenagers bedroom design in cool shades of blue and oak flooring. Features LED lit up built-in shelving storage with window bench seat.
Mature teenage style bedroom in various shades of grey. Also includes a grey fabric double bed and oak desk.
Feminine teenagers bedroom in white, purple and lilac. Includes a high loft bed that houses a large TV and seating area underneath.
Masculine teenagers bedroom with oak panelled feature wall, large double bed and small bespoke desk
Teenagers bedroom with trendy wooden slated feature wall (painted grey), built-in desk and large bed. A modern geometric rug covers the floor.

Boys bedroom with grey floor to ceiling built-in fitted wardrobes and large ironman artwork hanging on the wall
Small box-sized unisex bedroom with built-in wall cupboards and integrated white desk.

Let your teenager choose their preferred colour palette to express their individuality and feel more comfortable. Whether it’s a dark midnight grey, bold cobalt blue, a gentle pastel pink, or a deep forest green, incorporating their favourite colours into the room will help express their individuality.

2. Maximizing Storage Space:

Teenagers often have a ton of belongings, from clothes to textbooks and everything in between. Opt for clever storage solutions like bespoke built-in wardrobes or under-bed drawers to keep things organised while maximising floor space. At DAY & KNIGHT, we can even build bespoke units to fit under loft beds, which are a great storage solution for small box rooms.

3. Personalised Wall Art:

Give your teenager’s room a touch of creativity by incorporating personalised wall art. This could be in the form of custom prints, motivational quotes, or even a gallery wall showcasing their favourite memories and achievements. Skateboards, Snowboards and Wakeboards often have fabulous graphic designs and look great when hung on the wall as art work. The key is to focus on “art” that showcases your teenager’s personality.

4. Study Nook / Bespoke Desk:

Creating a designated study area is crucial in today’s fast-paced academic environment. Set up a cosy corner with a sturdy desk, storage cupboards, ergonomic chair, and ample lighting to provide a focused and comfortable workspace with plenty of desktop space

Having items to specifically help your child with organisation and time management will be of great benefit. Whiteboards, large wall calendars, timed reminders on smart assistants are just a few examples. These can be helpful for ADHD teenagers.

5. Comfortable Lounging Space:

Teenagers love to relax and unwind after a long day, so consider adding a comfortable seating area in their bedroom. From plush beanbags to cosy armchairs, providing a dedicated space for relaxation will make their room feel like a true haven.

6. Keep It Versatile:

Teenagers go through different phases and interests, so it’s essential to design a room that can adapt to their changing needs. Opt for versatile furniture pieces that can be easily rearranged, such as modular shelving units. A built-in wardrobe with moveable shelves and re-locatable rails can be a great flexible option.

7. Statement Lighting:

Lighting can make or break the atmosphere of a room. Install stylish pendant lights or floor lamps to create a warm and inviting ambience. Adding dimmer switches will allow your teenager to set the mood, whether they want a cosy ambiance for reading, or a vibrant and energetic space for entertaining friends. Colour changing L.E.D lighting is very trendy, especially for achieving that modern “gamer room look”.

8. Tech-Friendly Features:

Let’s face it; teenagers and technology go hand in hand. Incorporate tech-friendly features like built-in charging stations, hidden cable management solutions, and even smart home integration to make their room keep up with modern needs. Consider installing Cat6 RJ45 LAN points if they are heavy gamers, or stream lots of online content.

9. Cosy Bedding:

No teenager’s room would be complete without a comfortable bed that invites restful sleep. Invest in high-quality bedding, pillows, and mattresses that cater to your teenager’s specific comfort needs.

10. Washing Baskets & Robot Vacuum Cleaners:

Finally, encourage your teenager’s cleanliness by making it as effortless as possible for them to keep clean and tidy (as much as a teenager can be). A fun, interactive washing basket is a good idea – for example, they could shoot their socks through a basketball hoop.

As teenagers get older they typically don’t like their parents (or guardians) going in their bedrooms. Having a robot vacuum cleaner that vacuum’s the floor automatically every day can be a great addition, although they are pricey units.
