Red, White and Black Teen Bedroom

The teen bedroom is a place to sleep, play and work, so plan for adequate study space and play space when organizing it. And keep in mind that visual organization is just as important as clutter control, so make sure the room has a sense of continuity.

Here's a breakdown of the components that need to be addressed when organizing and suggestions for tackling the job:

Closet: Take the door off the closet to open the space and provide incentive to place items on hangers instead of throwing them on the closet floor.

Desk: Use a desk with adequate drawer space. Drawers keep items organized that tend to clutter the desk

Shelving: Install wall-mounted adjustable shelves that will grow as the needs of your teenager change.

Containers: Label all containers, not the shelf where items are stored. That way if containers move, the items are still put in the right one.

Memos, etc.: Hang pegboards or memo boards to provide contained spaces for notes, photos and calendars. No more looking for that invitation or phone number-it's right there on the wall.
