But again, they have budget constraints. So to help you all teens out there to give that ever dreamt transformation to your room, I present the best room makeover ideas for teenage girls!.
Why Room Makeover
A room is that special personal space of ours that is closest to our hearts. We spend the majority of our time in our own rooms. We sleep, eat, play, laugh, mess and clean …basically, we do every one of our daily chores in our own rooms. And as we all know regularity makes way for monotony!
That is where the concept of making over our rooms, comes into the picture!
Imagine a room to which you would want to come over and over again. And Imagine a room where you would love to spend more and more time…Imagine a room which feels completely yours… Imagine a room that gives you positive and refreshing vibes every time you happen to pass by it, or enter it…
What if we say, all that imagination of yours can become real after all??
That would be great. Wouldn’t it be? So let us get started…
How To Get Started About It?
Imagination and all is very fine but we do need a proper plan as to what to do and how to begin. Often we do not have any idea as to how to go about carrying the idea forward.
But to get an idea of what all of it exactly is, that your heart desires, you may want to peep inside yourself. Well…we can help you here.
So do not worry! Now, first of all, ask yourself a few questions:
- What is it that you want to change?
- What’s it that you would want to keep exactly the same?
- What color scheme and shades resonate with you?
- Would you prefer going monochrome or would you prefer it colorful and multi-shaded?
- Do you have a theme in mind, like ‘beach vibes’ or ‘barbie world’ or ‘Disneyland’? Well, think and think again.
- What is your budget?
Now that you know your needs and desires pretty well, now that you have a rough outline of what you are willing to carry forward, we can talk about some details. Shall we?
Further Steps Involved
Yes, you read it right. Cleaning up all the clutter is the most important and the most fundamental step. Just get rid of all the articles that you truly do not need.
You would be saving on some huge space.
It would clear space to bring fresh items in place. It would also look clutter-free and inviting.
Giving A Shift To Setup
Over the years watching the same articles placed at the same places may be the real cause of boredom. Why not go for a shift in the way your almirah is placed?
Maybe change the way that drawer and cupboard are placed? How about shifting your bed or sofa to allow the room to look even more spacious?
Or maybe shift it to the window side so that the first thing you get to breathe when you wake up is a lot of fresh and clean and breathable pure air!
That is what shifting the setup means. You break the monotony. You create more space.
Deciding A Colour Combination
You and only you get to decide your desired colors that you wish to amalgamate. Either you select various shades or just one…your call.
Whether you wish to incorporate a family of shades, or go monochrome, you do have all your time to decide it.
Make sure it is classy and resonates with your thought and concept of art.
A color family that blends with the whole atmosphere of your room should be your go-to choice. Natural colors are always the best.
Actually a color that is not gaudy and not very shimmering to the eyes should be selected. Even if you select them, make sure they make for smaller spaces instead.
Remember your goal is not to go for a color that looks party like and pompous but quickly starts to feel strange! Instead, choose something that remains homely and feels at ease and calm for long.
Mattresses have a whole world of art attached to them.
Choose a mattress that is soft and comfortable for you.
These days, orthopedic mattresses are a new trend. They are very beneficial. They give that extraordinary support to your spine and are joint-friendly.

Cushions and pillows
Cushions add a great deal of warmth to your room.
Not do they just add colors, but are an investment in comfort and softness too.
In fact, a bed without pillows gives such an incomplete feel. How are you supposed to get sleep without them, anyway? Moreover, pillows covered with beautiful pillow covers which go well with the color and pattern of the bedsheet, always add extra beauty.
The same goes for the furniture or sofa. You have to arrange cushions since they look great when styled with the apt color combo.
