46 Fantastic Diy Room Decor Ideas For Teens Girls

If your teen’s bedroom is cluttered and messy and they desperately need a make over, but you’re on a budget, here are some great decorating ideas that won’t break the bank. Updating their existing furniture, adding co-coordinating storage and decorating items in modern colours is the way to go. Follow the advice and tips below and you’ll be decorating every room, not just your teenager’s!

Colours –

TIP – When decorating, the basic rule to unifying a theme is to match an element of each piece together. The furniture should be the same colour and have matching handles on each piece to give a unified look even if the style of furniture is different.

Furniture – 
What existing furniture do you have in your teen’s room? If it’s still in good condition then it most likely can be updated. If not, most charity stores have good quality cheap furniture that just needs updating (wood is best as it’s easier to paint).

TIP – If some all of your furniture is made from laminate or a coated material, you will need to paint the furniture in a specialised primer first to make the new paint stick. Ask your local paint store attendant for advice on which primer is best. For wooden furniture that is already painted or varnished you will need to sand off any glossy finish first before you paint, or the new paint won’t stick properly. Use an electric sander to achieve the fastest results.

Wall Colour –

TIP – Another really cool idea (although your budget may not allow) is to use wallpaper on the feature wall instead of paint. There are some amazing designs these days with high texture and 3D designs available online and in home decorating stores.

Art Work –

To complete the look you really need to add art to at least two of your walls. Framed prints or canvas art comes in a variety of styles and colours and custom made art is a great way to personalise the image, theme and colour. Choose colours that are similar to your accent colour or black and white for great contrast. For DIY Canvas Art under $10, see my article http://ezinearticles.com/?id=235019

The Bed-

Storage –

Different sized decorative boxes with lids are an excellent and cheap way to store away your teen’s collectables. There are many available in durable cardboard and plastic.

Window furnishings –

Most teens like a dark room in the morning to wake up to, and adding a block out blind is the best way to achieve this.

Floor rugs –

To keep to the budget, stylish floor rugs at great prices are easy to find in most department or home depot stores.
