Decorating For Your Teenager
If you have teenagers, you know that decorating their rooms can be fun but it can also be costly as their tastes seem to change from week to week. When you are decorating a room for your teenager, it is best not to use durable products such as wallpaper or a certain pattern in wall to wall carpeting because their tastes alter so regularly. What is in style one minute, may be outdated and blah the next. When decorating the for your teenager, a far better option is to use removable such area rugs, paint, duvet covers and inexpensive window treatments to decorate for your teenager.
Duvet covers can be purchased easily enough or you can even make them. It is best to use a duvet cover that is similar to a giant pillowcase for the comforter, than to keep changing the colors and styles of the bedclothes. This is true more of girls than boys. You can sew together a duvet made from two sheets and affix Velcro to fasten it together, slipping a white comforter in the cover and instantly changing the style of the room. This is easy and inexpensive to do. What is more important, it can be changed easily if the style suddenly becomes unpopular.
Inexpensive window treatments include blinds and curtains that can be found in home improvement stores as well as discount stores. These are the best option when it comes to covering the windows in his or her room and can be changed if the style changes. You can even make your own curtains if you are handy with a sewing machine.
Instead of wallpaper, that can be very troublesome to remove, a better option is to use paint if your teenager is enthralled with a certain color that he or she wants on their walls. The walls can be repainted if the color is no longer wanted by your teenager after a certain period of time. This is a much easier project than removing wallpaper.
Area rugs are a great way that you can spruce up any room to add color and style. They are a better home décor choice if your teenager likes a certain color, than going for wall to wall carpeting in his or her room. Not only can the rug easily be replaced with another area rug if the taste changes, but the area rug can be used elsewhere in the house. Area rugs are one of the best options for instant color, warmth and style in any room, especially in the room of a teenager.
Decorating the room of your teenager can be fun, but you just do not want to put a lot of money into the project. By using less permanent decorating ideas such as duvet covers, paint, area rugs and inexpensive window treatments, you can give the room the décor that you are seeking for a lot less money than you can imagine.
