If you have teenagers, you know that decorating their rooms can be fun but it can also be costly as their tastes seem to change from week to week. When you are decorating a room for your teenager, it is best not to use permanent products such as wallpaper or a certain pattern in wall to wall carpeting because their tastes alter so frequently. What is in style one minute, may be outdated and blah the next. When decorating the for your teenager, a far better option is to use removable such as area rugs, paint, duvet covers and inexpensive window treatments to decorate for your teenager.

Duvet covers can be purchased easily enough or you can even make them. It is best to use a duvet cover that is similar to a giant pillowcase for the comforter, than to keep changing the colors and styles of the bedclothes. This is true more of girls than boys. You can sew together a duvet made from two sheets and affix Velcro to fasten it together, slipping a white comforter in the cover and instantly changing the style of the room. This is easy and inexpensive to do. What is more important, it can be changed easily if the style suddenly becomes unpopular.

Inexpensive window treatments include blinds and curtains that can be found in home improvement stores as well as discount stores. These are the best option when it comes to covering the windows in his or her room and can be changed if the style changes. You can even make your own curtains if you are handy with a sewing machine.

Instead of wallpaper, that can be very troublesome to remove, a better option is to use paint if your teenager is enthralled with a certain color that he or she wants on their walls. The walls can be repainted if the color is no longer desired by your teenager after a certain period of time. This is a much easier project than removing wallpaper.

Area rugs are a great way that you can spruce up any room to add color and style. They are a better home decor choice if your teenager likes a certain color, than going for wall to wall carpeting in his or her room. Not only can the rug easily be replaced with another area rug if the taste changes, but the area rug can be used elsewhere in the house. Area rugs are one of the best options for instant color, warmth and style in any room, especially in the room of a teenager. The dynamic rugs mystique collection is a particularly fun rug group that teenagers might enjoy, alternatively the dynamic rugs allure area rug collection has a few sophisticated patterns that might suit.

Decorating a teenager’s room is fun! With all their crazy ideas, you wouldn’t know what’s coming up next. Just remember that decorating doesn’t need to be expensive to achieve great results. In fact, opting for less permanent materials such as paint, area rugs, duvet covers and window blinds or curtains can save you more money every time your teenager changes his mind about his room’s decor. Make him happy by supporting his design ideas, and you can well do this if you have the resources. Taking off the wallpaper for a new one or changing the wall-to-wall carpeting more times than you general clean your house defeats the purpose. It is pricey and time consuming. Economical doesn’t necessarily mean cheap. With all the amazing designs and decors out there, you guys will find all the pretty things you need in decorating for much less dollar signs.
