[en] The teenage years are a crucial stage in the life cycle. It’s the moment when their identity, hobbies and interests begin to take on great importance. Their need to express themselves gains ever more importance and so, one of the best gifts that a family can give the adolescent members of their family is their own space, a comfortable one that reflects their tastes and interests. A space in which they can sleep, study and share time with their friends whilst continuing to discover this new stage in their life. At Viefe® we’d like to give you a few tips to make this space more welcoming and personal and a full of self-expression.
Firstly, it’s important to listen to the tastes and curiosities of whoever it is. You need to find a balance between it being a relaxing space where you can just switch-off and also being a space for creating and being original. With losing sight of the principal function of a bedroom, a place to rest, it’s necessary to define the social aspect of the bedroom. It needs to be defined as a space to study, a space to sleep in and a space for interaction with friends. One great alternative for bedrooms with limited space are benches with storage space underneath them so it can be used in it’s two forms, or vertical study spaces with shelves.
On the other hand, new trends often form part of the juvenile imagination. Original furniture combined with groundbreaking accessories or the use of recycled furniture or reused items favours the creation of a space that is full of personality. Storage accessories such as shelves, cupboards or chests of drawers are necessary features to keep the space tidy. What’s more, the front doors on cupboards, and drawers can also be personalised by fitting knobs or handles of an infinite variety of colours and shapes. Within the wide range of models from Viefe®, you’ll be able to choose from shiny rectilineal handles such as the Pura handle; small, discrete knobs such as the Diabolo knob; groundbreaking industrial aesthetics such as the Graf collection; or knobs with perfect circumferences such as the Bau knob. The shelves can be turned into cabinets to show off those objects that appeal to the finest tastes and curiosities of the discerning teenager, a mirror to showcase their identity.
In juvenile bedrooms walls have a great importance. White panels have a transformative quality creating a space where a teenager can express themselves. We recommend keeping the walls white, gray or a cream color and painting the other two walls with their favorite color which can be extended to bedroom accessories such as cushions, pictures or lamps. Colors such as orange and green can fill this juvenile space with extra energy. For the more daring amongst you, wallpaper or removable vinyl maybe the better option, or for the more artistic, a wall in the style of a blackboard will definitely be an extra impulse towards encouraging creativity. Wall hooks will enable you to add a contrast and they are a great solution to keep those essential things at hand. At Viefe®, you’ll be able to find the ideal wall hooks for your bedroom, and we’d especially like to mention the colorful Tok and Corner hooks and also the more practical Round hooks.
