THE NEED FOR A TEENAGER DEN AND ITS BENEFITS FOR YOUR KIDS

When your kids are growing up fast, they will demand more independence to hang out. But still, they are too young that you don’t want to allow them to go out. You can give teens more freedom by keeping them near you by building a teenager den in your garden.

A teenager den means creating some extra space for your kids in a garden where they can hang out with their friends. Building teenager dens in the garden also provide an opportunity for parents to give some more freedom by keeping their loved ones before their eyes without entering their privacy.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BUILD A TEENAGER DEN?

If your garden has space there a teenage den can build so your problem is resolved. All you need is a small wooden room or canopy as per your space and requirement. The size of a den mostly depends on the space available in the garden. It should be of that size that where all toys of kids, TV, and belongings of them can be adjusted with comfort.

COLOURS

When you are going to choose the colours for den you must choose those colours which your kid likes the most. Most children like funky designs and bright colours. Paint the walls of the den with the kid’s favourite colours.

Covering two sides of rooms with a darker shade of paint and the rest with a lighter shade is a great idea. If there are rugs on the floor it doesn’t need to have a match the colours of the walls.

You can also paste Blackboard vinyl on walls to write fun ideas and reminders. Wallpapers of animals, birds, plants and other shapes or designs can be popped in the teen dens in appropriate places to add some extra visual interest for your children.

FURNITURE

Thinking about how should you fix the furniture in the kid’s den? Again it is also about the needs of your kids. There must be room for sitting where kids can sit with their friends together.

LIGHTING

Lights can make a huge difference to your teenager den. Instead of installing a powerful light, you should choose a light that can give a sophisticated ambience as per the choice of your loved one. If there is a large feature in the room like table tennis or a pool table, you can hang a traditional light over it
