When thinking about ideas for your teenage girl’s bedroom, think about all of the things that girls your daughter’s age might want to have. Do you remember most of the things you would have wanted to have in your own bedroom while you were growing up?
It’s true we all want different things. Every girl is different; no two are the same. Girls’ personalities are as diverse as they come. Some might like all the typically girly things, but there are others are more tomboyish, and of course, let’s not forget our girls who look at the world differently.
What we need to understand is that the generations of today aren’t the same as the ones yesterday. You belong to a different generation. Your parents belong to a different generation. So, it should go without saying that your children live and breathe in a generation that is all their own.
And of course, they have their own tastes and preferences…
Today’s generation is all about growing up, finding yourself, and expressing yourself more openly. It’s all about being who you want to be and living your wildest dreams.
The 3 Must-Haves for Your Girl’s New Bedroom
A space to lounge with friends
Teenagers are in a strange place. They’re caught between childhood and adulthood. A teenage girl searching for her place in the world is not unheard of. And one way of trying to determine their self-image is when they spend time with their friends.
Give them that space at home. Give them a chance to feel so comfortable hanging out with their gals in their own bedrooms.
Pillows. Lots and lots of pillows
We love pillows. Honestly, who doesn’t?
They’re the perfect companions to hug in the middle of an intriguing movie. They’re also very cozy to snuggle with during cold nights. And the best part? They’re the perfect weapons for a wild pillow fight in every girl’s sleepover party.
Plenty of wall space left over for her own DIYs
Teenage girls today are all about being independent, growing up, and expressing themselves. And how do teenagers usually do this?
Why, by putting up posters or having their own freedom walls inside their bedrooms, of course.
It’s time to stop freaking out about the ‘mess’ hanging from your daughter’s bedroom walls. Sometimes, what you see as a mess is actually art and creativity in your daughter’s eyes.
The Perfect Bedroom for Your Girl
Don’t believe the last heading no matter what it says. There is no such thing as a perfect bedroom for your teenage daughter.
As we said before, a teenager’s tastes vary. It depends on their personality traits and their likes and dislikes. What truly matters, in the end, is your daughter’s well-being.
To feel comfortable and welcome in your home is an A plus for any teenage girl. They are in a weird place, so to say. It’s a place where they are trying to figure themselves out; a place where they try to learn about themselves as much as they can.
Because of that, they always constantly want to be heard. They want their voices acknowledged and considered. They need a place to call their own where they can be free to express their feelings and be their true selves.
This is by no means a guide to superior parenting, but giving your teenage girl a room where she can be comfortable and happy and express herself freely just might a step in the right direction.
And she might call her bedroom perfect after all.
