Most teens spend their time in the bedroom. As a teen’s haven, a bedroom should be comfortable and unique. To elicit good ambiance for studying, redecorating your kid’s bedroom is a good idea. Redecorating does not always need lots of money; with an abundance of creativity, you can create a perfect sanctuary for your teen. Here are some ideas for redecorating teenage bedroom on a budget.
1. Decide on a theme
Deciding on a theme for the bedroom is an easy step to lead to which direction the room will be decorated. Discuss it with your son or daughter prior to redecorating the bedroom. Let them choose the color and theme of the bedroom no matter how wild it might be. Whatsoever, it’s them who will eventually use the room.
2. Paint the wall
Before painting the wall, remove all things from the bedroom. Teens tend to choose vivid colors like candy-apple green or purple. However, not a few would choose solemn or warm hues. Based on the theme, you can choose to paint the wall in one color or in a combination of several colors. The wall can be painted in patterns such as stripes, plain background with polka dots decoration, or whatever designs you and your teen have in mind.
3. Alter the furniture
Rearrange the location of the furniture in the bedroom so that the room looks new. You do not necessarily put all old furniture back in the room. Choose only the most needed ones to create more spacious space for your teen. Painting the old furniture with color contrasting or related to the new wall pain will also create a different ambiance. As teens usually have many things to keep, mounting shelves on the wall for keeping books, displays, or other inventories is suggested.
4. Present some art on the wall
You can decorate the bedroom wall with posters, artwork, murals, inspiring words, or photographs. If your child is an artistic one, they might have their own artwork to hang on the wall. If they love photography, for instance, encourage them to hang their work on the wall. Black-and-white photos, abstract paintings, or vintage posters are also good ideas for redecorating the bedroom.
5. Play with the light
One of other cool teenage bedroom ideas on a budget is by adding new shades. You do not have to buy expensive lamps, though. Shopping at the flea market might make you come across some treasures. Retro night stand or chandelier (the less expensive one) found in the place might be useful for creating unique atmosphere in the bedroom.
