A few months ago I shared with you how we created a multipurpose space in our basement by creating zones for workout equipment, TV watching, and storage for craft supplies and games. It became pretty apparent that we didn't have a good solution when my teens wanted me to drive them over to their friends' homes every weekend but didn't want to invite anyone to our home. Teens want to be able to chat with their friends without worrying that Mom or Dad or younger siblings will hear and repeat the conversation. This is probably especially important given our family's size! And from my perspective- I want to make sure that I know the friends that my teens and tweens hang out with! Dropping them off at someone's front door isn't giving me the chance to get to know anyone. The first thing we did was to re-examine everything in this room and figure out what needed to move out to open up some space.
My girls are just small, but I still find myself worrying about what friends they will make when they go to school. And the teen years? See why I will never be the cool mom? And the style is timeless so that you can invite your friends over for a movie night, too! Get the details of this theater room from A Stylish Interior. Love this custom loft bed with the couch underneath, by CustomMade. This family turned their garage into teen hangout headquarters!
There comes a point when your kids grow out of their playroom. Legos and dolls are no longer cool, and neither is the primary color scheme. So put up your playroom and opt for a swanky modern lounge fit for video games, movies, and maybe even a ping-pong table.
With a heavy school load and an even busier social schedule, teens have a lot on their plate. Creating a safe, stress-free haven where your teenage son or daughter can knock out their to-do list and spend time with their friends is a great way to help keep them on track, but designing a space that is both practical and stylish can be harder than it looks. Need a little inspiration? A string of twinkling accent lights adds a warm and glowy ambiance while doubling as a place to pin up pictures, postcards and other treasures in this modern pink and grey teen room seen of Arch-Zine. This clean-cut teen room by Urbanology Designs keeps things simple, rocking its music-loving theme without danger of seeming too cutesy or over-the-top.
