Home Decor: Cool Decorating Ideas for Teens and Tweens
If so, check out these teen decor ideas that are decidedly grown-up, but not too pricey for your indecisive kid!
- Decorative Decals. Graphic wall decals are perfect for your forever-changing-his-mind teen. Is he in his rockstar phase? Get him a guitar graphic! In a crazed sports fan phase? Get a few sports decals! And when he leaves for college (Yikes!), you can just peel it off—no repainting required. (Bonus: grab a few decals for your living room or dining room to amp up your home decor!)
- Colorful Clocks. Make morning get-ups less of a chore with a new, colorful alarm clock. Your tween will dig modern metal design and cool color choices—just make sure she places it across the room, out of snooze-button-marathon range.
- Flower Vases. Let your flower child bloom into her teen years with a bouquet of cheap, chic vases. And who knows—maybe a few fresh flowers will inspire her to crack open her biology textbooks!
- Cool Chairs. A cool-yet-comfy chair will bring your teen's decor up-to-date. Choose one with adjustable heights for homework at the desk or gaming at the TV, and that's so stylish, he'll feel guilty hiding it beneath a pile of dirty laundry!
- Stylish Shadow Boxes. Your lovable pack-rat saves every ticket stub, bottle cap and invitation she's ever received ... and it's driving you nuts. Turn keepsake clutter into super cool tween decor and help her assemble some streamlined shadow boxes for her room's walls.
- Changeable Comforters. If sleeping under her old My Little Pony bedspread is bringing your teen down, cheer her up with a brand-new (and budget-friendly) comforter. The reversible style means she can even change her bed's color scheme as often as she changes her outfit.
- Legendary Lava Lamps. These symbols of trippy teenagers' rooms from the '70s are cool again! When you get him the lamp, throw in a Zeppelin CD for groovy good measure.
Teenagers' rooms don't have to be a scary place! Just look for cool, classic home decor and we promise you won't have another redesign 'til she goes to college! (Eeep!)
