Creating a perfect bedroom for teenage kids can be difficult. You want the room to reflect youth, but at the same time, there must be an element of maturity in it. Finding the balance between cheerful youth and calm maturity is the key to create a transitional room. Luckily, you can do it by focusing on each main feature.
Here are several steps to create a perfect transitional bedroom for teenage kids.
1. Consider the Bed Type
The bed is the most important feature in the bedroom, so you need to consider its model. Bunk beds may look fun for two kids (and ideal for a narrow room), but you will have to replace them in the future. A trundle bed is an ideal model for a transitional teenage room. It can sleep two kids, and the bottom part can be modified into storage space when one moves out.
2. Balance the Colors
Kids are all about bright and bold colors, but not all teens appreciate them. You should balance the use of bold and muted colors. For example, you may want to choose a neutral or muted color for the walls, but use colorful pillows, bed covers, and rugs for the accents.
3. Provide Enough Storage Pace
Bedrooms for teenage kids need enough storage spaces for their accumulated stuff. Choose a simple but stylish closet and at least one shelf unit. If the room is small, install floating shapes. You can buy a set of storage boxes later if the teen kid needs extra space.
4. Provide Natural Light and Good Circulation
An ideal bedroom must have enough natural light and circulation system. Regardless of the design, make sure the room has at least a wide window and a proper ventilation system. You can decorate (and redecorate) the room around these features.
5. Play with Fabric Elements
You have the freedom to play with fabric elements to change the look of a transitional room. Bright and cute colors are perfect for curtains, blankets, and pillows in a kid’s room. Switch to new fabric elements with more suitable colors for teens later.
A transitional bedroom for teenage kid combines elements from kid’s and young adult’s room. Follow this guide to create a room your kids will love.
