Today’s teenagers are design-conscious and up to date on the latest trends. But they’re torn between childhood and adulthood. Most teens have beloved toys they’re not ready to give up, but look for a room that’s older and more sophisticated than their childhood room.
Decide what purpose your windows will serve. While the basic function of windows are to let in light they can also serve as a doorway – as in a sliding glass window door for access to a porch for example or they can be fixed and ornamental just for aesthetics. Consider which rooms your windows will serve and if view is essential or is light into a dark space more essential as in a closet or pantry space. Consider using solar tubes that extend from the roof or a side wall to let light into dark spaces if a window isn’t feasible.
Rethinking Guestroom Configurations. No longer is the classic bed-table-locker combo enough to make a hotel room feel inviting. In today’s world guests expect surprises and where else, but away from home. Probably why each interior in the modern hospitality industry is very different from the next. Creative offices for business travelers, interesting looking TV panels and an extra sofa next to the king-sized bed are just some of the key “ingredients” for a trendy hotel room. We’ve also seen color explosions and eclectic decor mixes, which can definitely appeal to guests wanting to experience unique accommodation.
There are few places where a teen can express themselves unabashedly. The bedroom is the top choice. The beauty of being a teenager is that the world is their oyster. Their favorite things are diverse and sometimes discordant, but with some planning, all ideas can tie together beautifully.

Here’s one way we bypass having to coordinate colors: designing a room with a monochromatic color palette. It’s an incredibly simple way to bring elegance to your interiors without hiring a designer. And it’s becoming increasingly popular in interior design.
Apartment-Size Sofas and Seating. Companies such as West Elm and CB2 have developed a whole range of apartment-size sofas and seating for small-space dwellers, and for good reason: The sofa is usually the most space-consuming furniture piece in a home. Opt for sofas that have a shallower depth, 37 inches or less. Skip oversized, rolled arms — which can waste a foot or more of floor space — and pick a modern, streamlined style with thinner arms. Less arm space also means more seating; in fact, an armless sofa or a one-armed chaise is the ultimate space-saving seating solution.
Push Your Bed Up Against a Corner. Most bedroom styles feature the bed by centering it on the wall. However, narrow floor plans and limited space call for deviation for this. To maximize the floor space, tuck your bed up against a wall or corner. The effect will create a sleep area that feels cozier. If it feels too much like a college dorm? Add a two headboard corner system to create a finished, designer look to a bedroom.
Bookcases. Bookcases are a lifesaver when it comes to living small. They come in all shapes, colors and sizes. Our picks are not only functional, they’re attractive. Some ways to use a bookcase creatively in a small apartment include: As a room divider, floating it in an area to split up the space. To house collections of items to clear clutter and give a room a design boost. As a home office, with a shelf set at a height of 28-30 inches to serve as a writing or laptop spot, plus a section for a printer. As an entry, breakfast, media or sofa table. As an armless sofa bookend instead of a side table.
