How to Create the Perfect Teen Bedroom

While decorating a baby's nursery can seem like a daunting task, there's possibly even more to consider once your infant has blossomed and grown.

Not only should a teenage bedroom feel cosy and safe, it might also need to work double duty, functioning as a space for both relaxation and study. Throw in the need to consider your child's individual sense of style, and the whole process can begin to feel a little overwhelming.

Luckily, Gigi Brooks has exactly what you need to create the perfect space for your child at every stage, as well as a wealth of expertise and unique interior design ideas.

To help you move forward in the right direction, today we're sharing three top tips to help you figure out how to create the perfect teen bedroom...

1. Create a space personal to them

As it's often the only room in the house where they're able to do so, we think it's important that children are permitted to express their personalities in their bedroom at any age, but especially once they hit their teens.

Try to reflect their hobbies and interests in the room's decor and think about involving them in the selection of key accessories like soft furnishings and lighting.

2. Key pieces of furniture

Just as a crib and changing table are key items in your child's nursery, a bed and study desk are essential for a teenage bedroom. Selecting these central pieces of furniture is a good starting point as they will often influence a number of other decisions like layout, colour and accessories.

Some of our favourite pieces include Newport Cottages Blake Bunk Bed which is available in an array of vibrant colours, Newport Cottages Melrose Bed, the stunning Juliette Daybed with Trundle and our unique Light Space Bed which comes complete with a stylish gooseneck lamp designed to cast light from the top of the headboard.

The William Desk will create a stylish study space while our Franco Desk is an incredibly elegant choice.

A collection like Altamoda offers quality, luxury and inspiring style. It also makes it incredibly easy to create a striking look for your child's room with a full complement of furniture and accessories that will work perfectly together.

The range includes beds, desks, vanities and even built-in furniture designed to house home entertainment systems, so it's an ideal choice for teenagers who crave a space they can use to unwind at the end of a busy day.
