Certainly, decorating a teenager’s bedroom can be daunting, and the task could be even more difficult if you want to decorate it for your little princess. You need to make sure that she feels comfortable in what is necessarily her sanctuary. A teenager’s bedroom is a very personal haven where her ambitions and dreams take shape. It is where a girl can explore her feelings, express herself and create her own style.
Therefore, it is necessary that you plan your teenager's bedroom very wisely. Usually, when it comes to decorating a residential log cabin to create the perfect bedroom for a teenager, people feel they have to limit their creativity or have to be very cautious when choosing the colours for the walls and curtains. But that is a myth; you can play with colours and be as creative as you want to be, as you would be while decorating the bedroom of a traditional brick and block house. However, remember decorating a little girl’s bedroom and decorating a young lady’s bedroom are two different things. So, make sure you make your choices wisely and be very careful in choosing the theme, accents and accessories.
First you should sit down with her and find out how she wants her bedroom to look, what her favourite colours are and what type of furniture she likes the most. Once you get an idea from her, always keep that in mind when choosing the colours of the walls, curtains, furniture, wallpapers and accents, to ensure that her bedroom looks just the way she wanted. Here we provide a few really simple and effective tips to decorate your residential log cabin in order to give your teenager her personal and longed for bedroom.

It should motivate her and inspire her, so when choosing a theme for her bedroom in your residential log cabin, keep her interests in mind and work accordingly. For example, if your sweetheart loves dancing, the room can be designed to reflect this. You can decorate the bedroom like a ballet studio by painting the walls pink and hanging mirrors and ballet shoes on the walls. A pink skirt bed can add more to the room’s beauty and look. You could also go for beach theme, as most young girls like to walk along and surf on beaches. Take inspiration from the beach by choosing blue and brown colours. You can easily find wallpaper and wall stickers of a beautiful beach, sunset, ocean etc., which will help you make the walls more charming. For girls who love travelling, the bedroom could be designed to reflect the same. You just have to use your imagination in order to satisfy her fantasies. You could also opt for simpler look like Victorian or retro.
Go shopping for furniture: Furniture plays a crucial role when decorating the bedroom of a teenager. There are certain things that you should keep in mind when shopping for furniture.

And finally, it should go well with the theme of the bedroom. Some of the pieces of furniture you should consider are: bed, study table, chairs, and wardrobe. If you are on a strict budget, then you can also consider repainting old pieces of furniture and stencilling them. When shopping for chairs, some bean bag chairs or a small loveseat will suffice. You can also use organizers if the space is limited. Under bed organizers, closet organizers and drawer organizers will help you keep things organized as well as save space.
