Creating a space for a teenager to go to sleep, study, and hang out can be a tall order. All teens are different — some never want to leave their rooms while others would rather be anywhere but home. These rooms, designed for sophisticated teenagers as well as their parents, create beautiful atmospheres that teens will be proud to show off, be comfortable in, and maybe actually appreciate.
This first room, a totally cool room for a teen boy, comes from the designers at HQteam.
The creative slats on one wall work as a module storage system.
Simple but creative wall art brings a real hipness to an otherwise plain white wall.
Of course, any good teen room also has space for studying and this desk with a colorful chair is the perfect one.
Frosted glass bookshelves turn an otherwise ordinary storage option into something a bit more abstract.
Even this lime green desk lamp is a carefully chosen accessory that adds modern flair.
Shelves can easily be slid, moved, and removed to accommodate different objects.
They even have a place for the most essential accessory for a suburban teen: a bike.
This next room is a basement bedroom from designer Olga Podgornaja.
The room offers plenty of seating without feeling too cluttered.
The occupant’s love of football is certainly apparent, but not overwhelming.
Even the mossy green couch seems to be a nod to the pitch.
The bed is low to the ground and separated from the rest of the room with a creative divider element.
The third room comes from visualizer Dima Dolgykh and has a more subtle football theme, in particular a love for Real Madrid.
From this angle, the football theme is even more subtle, instead the eye is drawn to the teal details.
This room, from the designers at FH Studio is simple, but still has a playful teen sensibility.
The blue and yellow theme is a classic combination but done in a modern style.
The yellow shelving in particular creates a fun visual thruline.
White cabinets are an easy enough way to hide any messiness. Not that a teenager has ever been messy before.
With this room, from designer Gluzdakova Maria, we get a taste of a more specifically feminine teen room.
Though it’s a little dark, there are plenty of places for a girl to relax, study, or visit with friends. (No boys allowed, obviously).
The orange hammock in the window is a really fun retreat.
Mixing textures from the corkboard wall to the woven rug and upholstered purple sofa makes the space really feel like home.
A private vanity and dressing area is an absolute must for any teen girl.
This final teen room from designer Tania Ahmed would be perfect for a sophisticated teen girl.
The long yellow sofa could easily double as a twin bed.
The overhead light fixture is completely creative and not the least bit childish.
And the accent wall is a testament to creativity – something teenagers have in spades.
A little personalization goes a long way in creating a safe space for teens where they’ll actually want to be.
