Decorating your teenager’s bedroom can be gruesome if both of you have different taste. Remember your time as a teen when you felt that your parents just did not understand what being cool was for your generation. The same argument comes now when you are the parent. But, with a little willingness of keeping options from both the parties such a room can be created where both of you would feel content.
The teen’s bedroom is his or her place of refuge, the place where he spends most of his time, that’s how his involvement in decoration of room is important. Compromise from both the parties would help enter this collaboration.
Fix a budget and make it clear that you will not spend over a specific amount. If your teen’s choices exceed the budget, ask him what he is willing to give up. Teenagers can be very innovative and creative with making the old furniture or stuff into cool new thing. For best options visit flea markets, garage sales and thrift shops.
Go for bright and vibrant colors for your teen’s room. You can use a particular theme for the room as per his interest. For young and hip look, use of peppy zippy curtains, pillows and throws will serve the purpose. Apart from being fun oriented these ideas are even well under budget. Decorating your teen’s room lets you spend quality time together, get to know each other’s taste and style, see each other as individuals while bringing you closer.
