All teens love having a space of their very own for studying, reading, talking on the phone and hanging out with their friends. Even if her bedroom is tiny, your teen can have the pink bedroom of her dreams. By using every inch of space to its fullest and throwing in a few decorating tricks, her tiny room will live large.
Maximise her floor space with a loft bed, which lifts the mattress up toward the ceiling, freeing up floor space underneath. Use the found floor space for a desk and chair, a dresser or armoire or hang closet bars underneath for extra clothes-hanging space. Dress the bed with hot pink sheets, pink faux fur throw pillows and a shaggy, fuzzy pink coverlet.
Monotone Color Scheme
If pink is the colour she wants to base her decor on, paint the walls a pale shade of pink for an airy look and feel. Dark pinks will bring the walls in and make the room seem cave-like. Use patterns sparingly, but, when you do, go for something bright and exciting, such as a hot pink zebra-stripe rug or hot-pink floral curtains.
Sniff every possible inch of storage out of the room. Hang cabinets above the dresser or have a floor-to-ceiling cabinet made in place of the dresser. Hang hooks all the way across an empty wall for scarves, purses, hats and necklaces. Use every inch of the closet by outfitting it with a smart space-saving closet system. Hang a narrow shelf all around the perimeter of the room for trophies, knick-knacks and stuffed animals. Keep the shelves and cabinets pink to unify the room and help it feel larger.
Clear the Clutter
Get rid of anything unnecessary, such as old toys or clothes from your teen's younger days. Remove any furniture than isn't absolutely necessary. For example, there's no need for a make-up table if the room has a bathroom nearby. Take the bedside table out, and hang a small wall shelf in its place. Video game rocking chairs are ideal for lounging around yet take up much less area than an accent chair or chaise. Hang colourful posters on the wall in place of knick-knacks cluttering the room.
Sleek Window Treatments
Whether you use a wild pink print or simple solid-pink panels, keep the shape of the window treatments simple. Fluffy, puffy, ruffled fabrics take up valuable space. Mini-blinds fit neatly in a window but can be very bland, Liven them up with a simple top treatment or panels in bright pink stripes, an animal print or a floral.
