Awesome Digs1 of 11
By Amy Elisa Keith
Pretty soon, your children are going to want to ditch the paisley prints and all-white motifs for something a bit edgier. Before they tape the “No Adults Allowed” sign onto their doors, have some fun decorating with them to fashion a stylish and (almost) grown-up space.
Ladylike Lair2 of 11
If pink isn’t her thing and she’s more Nate Berkus than Justin Bieber, then embrace your daughter’s sense of refined style. After all, she learned it from you. With embroidered pillowcases, a polka-dot headboard and matching lighting, this room will be even better than her first (and second) apartment.

While you would totally buy this bedding for yourself, remember that your teen is just dying to be an adult. So give her bedroom a grown-up feel with bedding that is floral and feminine but not cheesy. This is a look that will grow with your teen and can remain as is, even after she leaves for college.

Little touches can truly transform a space, and when it comes to your teen’s bedroom, they can work wonders.

Chill Out9 of 11
If you’re tired of your child’s friends popping by and taking over the family room, then give them a space all their own.
