Your little princess isn’t so little now and has grown out of her princess themed room, so where do you start when redecorating? In this article we’ll give you some handy hints in creating the perfect bedroom for your teenage girl.

Storage, storage, storage

Storage is the key to creating an uncluttered room perfect for a teenage girl. Whether they need storage for clothes and shoes or book and CD’s it is important to have planned out space for everything. Under bed storage is great for adding storage without taking up additional space in the bedroom, whereas sliding wardrobes provide custom storage for clothes and shoes. There are a huge range of sliding wardrobes available in a range of different colours that can be built to fit into any bedroom; companies such as and offer bespoke designs at an affordable price with a range of storage options.

Ottomans are also a great option for adding storage to a bedroom and if the room has a bay window why not utilise the space by making a bench seat with some storage underneath.

Another important consideration to think about is adding some kind of desk/make up table to the room. This will provide a practical area in the room for your child to do their school work or talk to their friends through social media away from the hustle and bustle of the main house.

Painting and decorating

Pinks, red and oranges are some of the more popular colours in a girl’s bedroom, but at the end of the day it should be up to them to choose a colour scheme because at the end of the day they will be spending all their time in there.

Adding wallpaper to one wall can create a fantastic focal point for the room, whereas pastel or muted colours are timeless and will suit a variety of themes.

Designing a bedroom for a teenage girl needn’t be stressful, it’s a simple task of evaluating the storage and practical needs of your child and choosing a suitable colour scheme.
