Teens Room: Teen Bedroom Ideas That Are Awesome, Cool, and Fun

A connectedness to family history is an important element of tween room design, especially in both Ellis’ and Camille’s rooms. Many designers suggest having at least one item in every room that has been handed down from family members throughout the years. Mixing newly purchased pieces with those that were passed down from parents and/or grandparents creates a truly personal touch. Even better, it is a tradition that can be continuously carried down through several generations. For example, the canopy bed in Camille’s room is the same bed Amy and her older sister slept in as children. "That bed has really made the rounds, first with Camille’s cousin and now with Camille," Amy recalls. "It’s still squeaky like when I was little, and even that inconvenience is part of its story. For Camille and her cousin, it was their first big-girl bed. And our house may not be its last stop because now there’s that tradition." The hand-me-down tradition can always start anew with items given to children as gifts. Ellis’ beloved black globe was a gift from his paternal grandmother. Perhaps 20 years from now, that same globe will end up in his son’s room.

Amy and Alan found another way to introduce color in Ellis’ room without overwhelming the space: underfoot. "The floors in that room were not heart pine like the rest of the house and they were dingy, so we painted them a bold blue. That was 13 years ago. We kind of like the wear and tear, and haven’t even done so much as touched them up." To paint wood floors, first sand the existing finish, then apply a coat of primer. Roll several coats of the finish color with a roller and an extender pole. The last step is to add a coat of sealer to protect the finish. Not just any paint and sealer will do; stick with paints labeled "porch and deck paint," and look for floor sealers that are labeled "clear," since many polyurethanes tend to dry with a slight yellow tone.

Excerpt from Teen Bedroom Ideas That Are Awesome, Cool, and Fun :

The bulk of daughter Camille’s record collection is a stack of 45s from her dad’s collection from his youth. Among them: "YMCA" by Village People, "Get Up Offa That Thing" by James Brown and, of course, "Le Freak" by Chic. From handed-down furniture to music appreciated as much by tweens as their parents, one thing is certain in the Flurry household: Vintage never goes out of style. - Antique stores and flea markets are great sources for finding one-of-a-kind items for decorating tween rooms. - To keep tween spaces from feeling too juvenile, stay away from using themes or color combinations that are often associated with nurseries or children’s rooms. - Gender-neutral colors such as robin’s-egg blue and blue-green are excellent choices for tween rooms. A few other less-expected tones that also work well are coral, blue-gray and violet, as well as muted greens such as celery and sage. - To make a tween’s space truly unlike any other, incorporate handed-down pieces from family members into the design. - For rooms with active teens who are prone to bumping into furniture and scratching surfaces, search flea markets and thrift stores for pieces with worn-in, comfortably aged looks. - Painting wood floors with high-energy porch and floor paint can give a tween space a brand-new, super-cool look without major costs. The everyday wear and tear of the floor will add to the patina, giving it more character over time.

When it comes to choosing art for tween spaces, parents will get much more bang for their buck by choosing something unique, rather than mass-produced posters or prints from major retail chains. Local art festivals are an excellent source for picking up original works at affordable prices. Hanging above the bed in Camille’s room is a print by Portland artist Emily Martin. "I bought it for $24 at a holiday market in Athens when Emily lived here some years ago. Now she is a well-known illustrator, and Etsy shop The Black Apple has her among their best-selling artists," says Amy. "I have continued to shop her store for postcards - they are frameable and inexpensive prints. They’re moody but sweet, which is perfect for a tween room."

I started this career because I loved doing houses. I'd done three of my own and I couldn't keep on moving my family all the time, so I decided to decorate other people's homes and buildings
