Tips for choosing furniture and decoration

When furnishing or redesigning the teenager's room, parents should make sure to include the teenager's personal taste. After all, the teenager should spend time in his or her room every day and must, of course, feel comfortable.

So parents need to realize that the room is no longer for playing, but for living. Especially in a small teenager's room you should pay attention to functional furniture with dual function. However, you should leave the decoration entirely up to your child, as young people usually have their own precise ideas about their feel-good room.

The size of the room plays a big role when it comes to choosing the right furniture for your teenager's room. In a large room you are much freer in terms of furniture selection, as in a small room. Especially here you should pay attention to practical furniture that does not take up much space, but still offers enough storage space. The basic equipment includes furniture such as a bed, desk with matching chair and a closet. If there is any space left, a TV corner with a sofa or bench and a TV is a nice idea. In addition, shelves, a commode or sideboard to store items for everyday use should not be missing either.

Practical cabinet systems in the youth room

The older your child gets, the more important fashion and style becomes. Therefore, a practical cabinet system with plenty of storage space is very important to be able to carefully all the clothes. The size of the closet depends on the size of the room. Therefore, for a small room, a practical corner wardrobe is a good choice. Also closets with sliding doors or sliding doors are very practical, because they do not have doors that open to the outside and thus take up space. Doors with integrated mirror are very popular especially in a girl's room very popular. Especially with the closet you should pay attention to a good quality, because the youth usually do not handle your closet gently. In addition, it should be made of an easily care material.

Chairs for youth room

In order for your child to do his homework properly at the desk, an ergonomic desk chair is very important. This should be really comfortable and support a healthy posture. The best desk chairs are those that are flexibly height-adjustable and can thus be perfectly adapted to the body size and height of the desk. In addition, it should have an armrest and backrest so that a comfortable sitting position is possible. Of course, the design also plays a major role. Here you should again clarify with your child which desk chair is convincing on both sides.

Tables & desks for youth room

A desk in a teenager's room should ideally grow with the child and offer enough space to work. It is useful if it has storage compartments or drawers so that school supplies such as pens, folders and books can be neatly stored. For this purpose, it should be height-adjustable and positioned so that it has direct access to sockets, if possible, to position a desk lamp on the table and, if necessary, to use a laptop at the desk. It is pleasant to place the desk near a window. This way, you get enough daylight and don't have to do your homework in a dark corner.

Youth beds of all types

Finding the right bed for you is not always easy. The children's bed with a width of 90 cm is usually no longer enough. If the size of the room allows it, your child will certainly be happy about a youth bed with a width of 120 cm. If you only have a very small room available, a chic sofa bed is a good choice, which can easily be converted into a sleeping option as needed. So even friends will find their place, if they ever stay overnight. There are also beautiful beds that provide an additional mattress in their bed base or the bed base can be used as storage space. In addition, a nice large loft bed or bunk bed offers itself. This is very space-saving, as there is room under it for shelves or a desk. However, it is important to choose the bed together with the child, so that he is also satisfied with his future bed and likes to sleep in it.

We at offer you shelves that can be adapted to any room situation and can be freely customized in terms of design. First configure your desired shelf according to height, width and depth and choose your favorite material from various materials. Then you can freely deform it - whether straight or curved, you decide what you like!

Sofas & armchairs for youth room

The youth room plays an important role when visiting friends. There, old furniture from the baby room or children's room is taboo. A cool sofa for relaxing with friends now becomes the highlight in the youth room. For overnight stays, a sofa bed is extremely practical. Also, small stools, armchairs or even a bench offer themselves as seating. A side table rounds off the relax zone in the new youth room.

In a girl's room, pastel tones, red, orange, yellow up to purple and pink are available. It is important to ask your child what color they want so that they feel comfortable afterwards.
