1. Ask your kid what she wants.
She has grown into a teen now and she can already express her interests and her likes. She could have ideas for her bedroom and what changes she want to see. She will feel happy if you ask for her opinion. Getting her involved will also make the task easier for you and it will save you from frowning faces just because they didn’t like what you did to her bedroom. Since it is her private place, let her speak up. But tell her if you disapprove of something too. There has to be a good agreement between daughter and parents.
2. Look for ideas.
There are so many places to get ideas from. You can search online where you can see websites that share tips like this and other bedroom design inspiration. You can also borrow or buy home design magazines. There are pretty stuffs that you can find there too. Then collect the ideas your daughter liked and let her decide on what she really wants.
3. Check what items you would change.
Look into the bedroom of your daughter. What are the items that needed to be changed? Is the bed too small for her? Remember to remove the play area and change it into a study area. Check the table lamps, curtains and others too.
4. Select a theme.
Let your daughter choose a theme. Some might want it to be simple but others want it look very girly and chic. It depends on the personality of your daughter. Help her choose a theme too. If she wants something which you do not approve of, give her your reasons. Then share some ideas to her until you both agree on a theme.
5. Decide on the color scheme.
After choosing a theme, it is time to decide on the colors. This would also depend on the theme of the bedroom. If you think your kid chose a color that is too bright or too dark, suggest a color that is close to it. At least, you’ll end up with the same color. Don’ t forget the accent colors.

Grab a piece of paper and sketch the bedroom. Plan the space through that. This will help you decide on what furniture you still need. This way, you are sure that the bedroom will have enough space for moving around.

You can also add a chaise lounge so that it can also be used by friends who will sleep over. Don’t forget the study desk and chair. Add ottomans too for additional seating. But of course, see to it that the bedroom is not crowded.
8. Look for fitting decors and accessories.
Still based on the theme, get items for decors and accessories. This includes the lighting, the bedding covers and everything. If you are a DIYer, you can save money by making your own decors. You can also check thrift stores.
