Many of our clients start working with us to design their big projects, like new builds, kitchen or master bath remodels, and main living area or master suites redesigns. Once we have completed these more complex and usually more expensive rooms, their eyes turn to smaller projects like kid spaces. Over the years we have completed many teen-oriented bedrooms, which are very fun to design since we are helping that young person discover their personal style. Another gratifying part of designing for teens is being able to bring them high style for a smaller budget. It makes sense to invest more of a design budget on the public or well-used areas of a home. Private and more transient spaces like bedrooms do not necessarily need the highest quality furniture or materials. However, good design is always a must. Our approach is to invest in items that will add value to the home, like built-in cabinetry. We then look for areas to save, like on furniture, window treatments, bedding and accessories. For example, the high-quality fabric shown above was chosen for a teenage boy who likes strong geometric patterns and deep colors. It will be used sparingly to help set the tone for the room as upholstery for a bench that was purchased from an online retailer, making the off-the-floor piece look custom. From there we helped him choose mid-range priced elements that support his style but stay within his parents’ budget. If you are considering giving your teen the room of their dreams, reach out to us. We’d love to help!
