For kids who are transitioning into their teenage years, it can be a challenge to update their room into a more mature space that they can feel comfortable in. Not only should the updated room offer a great design, but should be more functional for a teen that may spend their time playing video games, surfing the web, or finishing their homework.
Add a Desk
Kids often have fun items in their room that include a toy chest, board games, or a large dollhouse that is used to keep them busy and have a bit of fun.
For teenagers, they’ll likely need a work-space that allows them work on their schoolwork, or complete projects on a computer without wanting toys anymore.
Add a desk that has plenty of drawers and space for them to decorate, and include framed photos and fun accessories. Incorporate a clear Lucite ghost chair, which is a cool and modern addition for teens to enjoy.
Upgrade Old Furniture For girls and boys who may have had the same type of dresser or nightstand since they were a toddler, it’s important to upgrade the look that is likely outdated without spending thousands of dollars on new pieces. For wood furniture, sand and stain the wood with a finish applied for an affordable way to make the pieces
look modern and new again. Opt for darker furniture for boys, which will create a masculine looks, as girls can enjoy having furniture with distressed wood for a vintage and feminine style.
