Your teenage years – a time when you are old enough to crave your independence but still heavily reliant on mum and dad for emotional and, dare we say it, financial support!
And, when it comes to spending time with the family, it’s typical of many teenagers to want their own space where they can kick back and relax with their friends, without imposing on the rest of the household.
As soon as they enter their teenage years, many youngsters crave their own den or hang out space, where they can play, socialise, and chill out. After all, creating a place where they love to spend time is better than having them roaming the streets, right?
There are lots of ways that you can create a cool, chill out zone in your teenager’s bedroom. We’ve complied a list of some of our favourite ideas that are perfect for giving them their very own space.
Fill the space with all of their favourite things
The majority of teenagers are in to the latest everything… from trainers and gadgets to the hottest TV programmes, they are pretty easy to please, despite popular belief.
So, when you’re creating the ultimate hangout space, bare this in mind. For example, when it comes to wardrobe space why not dedicate an area to their favourite trainers so that they can place them on display? Or even integrate a media centre into the design, so that their favourite electrical equipment is easy to conceal when its bedtime? This is also a great way to save floor space.

Optimise floor space
When it comes to creating a cool, spacious zone for your teenagers, it’s important that it is clutter free and floor space is maximised. After all, your big kids need plenty of space to kick back, play, and hang out with their mates.
Think about scattering beanbags or large floor cushions, this gives them a fun and comfortable space to relax. Sofa beds are another great solution and also come in handy for sleepovers!
Another great way of maximising floor space is to integrate fitted wardrobes into their bedroom, this provides a space for all their clothes, gadgets and games, keeping them off the floor.
Your choice of lighting can have a huge impact on the look and feel of a space, as it can change the mood of a room in an instant.
When it comes to your teenager’s hang out space, why not think about integrating dimmer lighting? This will allow them to fully control the ambience of the room and comes in handy particularly when they are gaming.
Of course, the beauty of a teenager’s room is that the accessories you choose can reflect their youth. So, when it comes to lighting, why not think about featuring fun lamps, themed twinkle lights, and retro lava lamps?
Teenagers love listening to music, gaming, and watching the latest films… so no teenage hang out den would be complete without a high tech entertainment system that is fully equipped to accommodate their needs.
From wireless Bluetooth speakers to cool, movie projectors that allow you to enjoy a cinematic experience, there’s lots of ways to create an inviting space that is sure to bring a smile to your teenager’s face.
