Teen Game Room Design

So you have teenagers now and you also have an outdated game/play room. It’s a little daunting to create a fun area for picky teenagers! But having a cool space to hang out in the house is a really nice alternative to your kiddos spending all their time behind closed bedroom doors… anyone else agree? An exciting ‘teen zone’ as we like to think of it, literally opens doors, creates a central space for your big kids and their friends and maybe even puts you in cool mom status? I mean we’ll take it when we can, no shame! All the pieces we’ve sourced for this room are functional, easy to wash, budget-friendly & teen-friendly! We’ve sourced items for chics or dudes, easily interchangeable for more masculine or feminine pieces! Scroll down to shop.
