If you have a teenager, you understand how much time is spent in their room. It’s pretty much home from school, up to the room, shut the door, end of story. They may be studying, listening to music, or brooding. No matter what the reason, teens definitely need their own space to unwind. I love these teen DIY bedroom projects because I think they add a little something to any teenager room. They are easy to personalize with favorite colors for boys or girls, and simple to put together.
I have found that teenagers notice the little things, even if they might not tell you. Perhaps making their space a little more special will show them that that you care, and maybe knowing you care will get them to come out of that room a little more often. Here’s some quick ideas for teen bedroom DIY.
I love the idea of accent lighting to spruce up a space. Whether it’s above the nightstand or over the desk, this ping pong ball pendent is on point. Switch up the colors to match your teen’s style, or leave the balls white for a modern look.
Everybody needs an easy to use calendar to keep track of important dates and deadlines. This DIY paint chip calendar provides teens one calendar they can wipe off and use again and again.
If your teen diva is taking over the bathroom, give her a vanity space with storage for hair and makeup supplies. Add a mirror, and a couple of plug-in lighting strips, and she’s ready to go. Putting this together is so simple, and gives your girl a space of her own.
Teens love pictures, particularly selfies. Put all those selfies to good use by using Christmas lights as clothesline-style photo display.
This chalkboard wall is one of my favorite ideas. It’s simple and inexpensive and makes a huge difference. Now they can jot down all their favorite ideas, quotes, to-do list, goals, poetry, or anything else that’s on their mind.
Everyone needs a charging station, and this DIY shows you how to make your very own charging station that looks beautiful and hides all those unsightly cords.
Even if you live in a small space, it’s no excuse to skimp on style. This is the back of a door decorated using only washi tape. It removes quickly and easily with no residue. Create your own with any color and virtually any design you can imagine.
Create string art for your teen using their favorite word, phrase, or goal and pull it together with their favorite color of string. This DIY take a little more time than the others, but makes a huge impact. And don’t worry, you don’t have to put all those nails in the wall, it’s created with a wooden board, or canvas and then hung on the wall.
If your teen has their wall covered with cheap posters hung with thumbtacks, take their art up a notch with framed wall art that still includes their favorite things, but looks a little more classy.
Pottery Barn Teen has some adorable furniture for bedrooms, but several items you can make yourself like this office chair. Take a basic office chair and recover it in furry, fuzzy fabric for a cozy study area.
Create storage in the bedroom any way you can. The more storage you have, the less stuff is on the floor (ideally). If you look closely, you can see these crates are held together only by using giant binder clips. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
