Category : Home Improvement
It does not take time when kids grow up into teens and start wanting things of their own, so to ease your work, here are 10 tips to renovate your child’s old room into a teenager’s haven.
- Reorganize before renovating – Before setting to renovate, start with reorganizing spaces well! You can replace space-taking shelves with pullout drawers or built-in closets. This is easy for teens to create their own space.
- Ask your teens – Sit down with your teen and ask them what they want in their bedroom. Include them in the process so as to have their opinion in everything. If possible, renovate the room according to their choice.
- Concentrate on the light – Consider changing the lights as it has an impact on how your child grows. To brighten the room, you can opt for white color and light colored curtains.
- Be colorful – If possible, when renovating the room, concentrate on putting colors that your teen prefers. Give a makeover in terms of colors as well as the décor. Know well which color teams up with other existing colors.
- Maximize the storage space – If you have enough space, go for a floor-to-ceiling fitted unit to make the most of every inch of the bedroom. Be sure that it incorporates room to display treasures, shelves for books, drawers for more personal things.
- Functionality – It is important that you have a room where you can renovate without any problem. Decorate the room while thinking of the function of each space properly.
- Use the window and mirror – If you have a small room, then you can use the window as a part of the décor. Place the bed in the middle of the room, next to the window to allow light in and make the room look bigger than it is actually. You can also use mirrors to trick the eye into believing that the room is wider. This can be done by placing the mirror above the head of the bed.
- Make your headboard work – Using your headboard as storage is a clever way to make the most of your space. You can convert it into a bookcase.
- Get rid of clutter – Remove things that you know he/she will no longer use! Get rid of toys and clothes that are stacked somewhere in the closet. But be careful not to remove everything, remember to keep memorabilia of their childhood in their teen’s room. It helps psychologically.
- Add your touch of grown-up – Yes, agreed it is your teen’s room, but you can also interfere! Add a grown-up touch by putting more linens and a fresh coat of paint that will change the whole look of the bedroom.
