We give you the lowdown on how to update your teenager’s room
It’s that time of day, you are heading into your teenage son or daughter’s room to collect washing from the floor and various glasses and mugs hidden on the sides and you think, what’s with all the posters? Have we not replaced the little child’s lamp yet?…Is that a rip in the bedding?!
With half term upon us and time on your and your teenager’s hands, why not get together and give their room a spruce in time for Christmas? With the winter coming to meet us, making our bedroom a cosy, inviting place to be will make hiding indoors from the elements that much enjoyable. IWOOT is here to give you some teenage bedroom ideas that will give your son or daughter a unique bedroom to be proud of!
Wall Art Ideas for Teenagers
Agreeing on new wallpaper for their bedroom is never going to be easy…let’s face it, we all have different tastes. Besides, what’s to stop them covering the wallpapered walls in posters again! Wall art on a fresh-painted wall can act as a tidy compromise, keeping a room looking fresh and modern whilst adding some much-wanted character to their bedroom.
We have a great selection here at IWOOT, from massive showstopping wall murals to more subtle wall decals ranging from tranquil woodland scenes for all those Twilight fans, to popular Banksy imitations for budding artists.
Don’t think you’ll be able to convince them to take down the posters and pictures just yet? Don’t panic! Pick up some poster frames to protect the beloved items…and more importantly, protect the walls from sticky tape and tac! If framed images are the way you decide to go when decorating their room, we have some great collectable prints and canvases at great prices…these can make great Christmas gifts for teenagers when you are a little stuck for ideas!
Bedding Ideas for Teenagers
So that’s the walls sorted, now it’s time to throw out the moth-bitten, tired bedding and replace it with fresh new sheets that can bring the decor of their room together! We have a great selection of Sheridan bedding here at IWOOT ranging from fresh white bedding to classic stripes in a variety of colours. With all the sheets currently reduced, there couldn’t be a better time to have a nosey!
You can carry on the colour theme of the bed by buying coordinating throws and cushions too! From adorable animal print cushions from Ohh Deer to cosy chunky knit throws and cushions covers, getting the perfect bedroom look for him or her couldn’t be easier with IWOOT.
Bedroom Accessories for Teenagers
The bulk of your work is done! Now just to replace those kiddie lamps and clocks with funky modern bedroom accessories that have a unique charm, and “grown up” appeal! From classic alarm clocks to cutting edge clock lamps, replacing that 90s radio alarm or Barbie clock couldn’t be more satisfying…so go and have a look!
Ok, so the bedroom is looking pretty good now…but what about all their stuff!? To make sure their belongings don’t creep onto the floors and sides, make sure they have plenty of storage. Oh, and lastly but not least, if they haven’t got one of their own already – get them a laundry basket – no longer will you need to hunt the floor for dirty washing!
I hope I have given you some inspiration to team up with your son and daughter to give their bedroom a makeover this half term! If you don’t manage to squeeze it in this week, why not surprise them with a funky print or wall mural this Christmas? Or maybe just sneak in a new laundry basket into their room as a hint for them to keep their room tidy! Whatever you get up too, I hope you have a great half term break!
