Your tweens room is often the most colorful room in the house. This is because your young lady isn't afraid to venture into bright colors, and unusual decor.

As a parent, how can you revive your daughter room and their need for change without spending a huge amount of money on new furniture or accessories? You could focus on the bed.  Change it up, and give them something different, fresh and new.....

1.    Invest In A Fluffy Duvet

Duvets are a fundamental part of bedding. It should be used with a top sheet because it comes with a washable, removable cover. When purchasing a duvet cover, make sure to select one with an insert. Work with your daughter in selecting a duvet.  Involving her in  the design process may allow her to appreciate the items you both select. During the summer, fold the duvet and use a coverlet instead of a quilt.

2.    Wool Blankets Are Always A Great Buy

In terms of material, wool is the best because it is warm in the winter. In fact, it is the warmest blanket you can purchase.  Merino wool has the finest quality; the material traps warmth and it makes sure the body rests comfortably during the night. For the daughter with allergies, you can opt for blankets made of a non-allergenic synthetic material. These are less expensive, but equally soft.

3.    Brightly Colored Bed Linens Can Be Visually Interesting

Bed sheets come in sets, most of them include a flat, a fitted, and two pillowcases. When selecting bed linens, you should pay close attention to the fabric. Egyptian cotton may be the best, although it is also the most expensive. As an alternative, it is important to stick to 100% cotton. In terms of design, warm colors with prints are ideal. For gals, pastel pinks and yellows are great picks.

4.    Shams Can Make An Impact In A Room

Average shams accommodate ordinary pillows that are between 20 and 26 inch. These bedding accessories are great at making a tweens room look grown up and updated. They open up in the middle, thus preventing viewers to see the actual color of the pillow. In terms of design, the variety is endless.

5.    Quilt's Can Offer A Historical Flavor To The Room

Most of today’s quilts are stitched and machine washable. They’re lighter in weight than comforters and duvets, which make them perfect for cooler seasons. In terms of style, the quilt should match the overall décor of the room. Colorful patterns can be dominant, which basically means you can opt for the brightest sort you can find.  Go for two toned quilts.  They seem to look the most current, such as the one above.

6.    Go For A Pattern When Buying Flannel Sheets

When purchasing sheets made of flannel, it is important to look for labels that say “pre-shrunk”. You don’t want to wake up one day and realize that the sheets don’t fit the bed anymore.  Go for something "grown-up", yet a slight pattern to give visual interest to the bed.

7.    Invest In Bed Collections For A Pulled Together Look

Go for collections that include several pieces in one package.  Coverlets are similar to quilts, only they’re lighter. Appropriate in the summer, these are perfect duvet replacements. Consider colorful, vibrant designs and patterns.  Accent pillows are available in a wealth of sizes, these pillows add a splash of color to every room. A bed skirt will instantly create a streamlined, clean look. Let a bed skirt keep things stored under the bed out of sight and organized.

The right linen fabric doesn’t just make the bedroom look appealing, but it also helps inspire your daughter in her goals through life.  An inspiring bedroom can motivate her in so many creative directions as she ventures on to middle school, and then to high school.
