The teenage years are filled with big changes, from new responsibilities to developing interests and preferences that can seem completely alien to the adults who love them. However, there are some things that all teenagers will want in their bedroom, whether it’s the first space they’ve ever had of their own or if they’re looking to upgrade from the design their parents chose when they were younger. Here are five things every teenager should have in their bedroom.
1. Comfortable Bedding
Many studies suggest that teenagers need more sleep than adults – seven or eight hours is recommended by most sources; because their bodies are still growing, teenagers require more rest to maintain their energy levels throughout the day. Comfort is key to getting a good night’s sleep—and if you want to feel refreshed in order to tackle your day, then comfortable bedding should be high on your list of priorities. Investing in quality linens and the right mattress can ensure restful nights and productive days.
2. A Bulletin Board
A bulletin board is a great way to make a teenager’s bedroom more personal. It could include memorabilia from friends and important events, as well as reminders and goals they want to keep in mind while they sleep. The key here is to provide a space where they can can post things that make them happy and get organized without cluttering up their room.
