If you and your teen are in the mood to tackle a crafty project, I love this DIY air plant terrarium tutorial on Houzz. It's chic and easy, the best combination! Update the homework zone. Ground the work area with a creative and useful chalkboard wall, or include a large bulletin board for pinning up lists, photos and inspiration. Pay attention to the ergonomics of the space as well, making sure the chair and desk are at the right height. Good task lighting is essential, and any additional storage you can squeeze into the space will help maintain order. At least consider a small filing crate and a basket for recycling. Add an entryway. In my experience, most messes come from the junk we put down as soon as we enter a space. Help prevent the big chaotic pileup before it begins with a few preventative measures: A coat tree or wall hooks will hopefully keep those coats and bags off the floor, and a dresser or table placed near the door can be a drop zone for mail, keys and other odds and ends. Provide hangout space. If you have the room, bring in a retired couch from the basement or attic. If space is tight, try a fluffy area rug with a few big floor cushions instead. Add an unexpected touch. Every room should have something that immediately catches your eye or makes you smile, and your teen's room is no exception. Make the room glow with a cluster of cheap and chic paper lanterns, scoop up a funky neon sign or a vintage marquee letter at the flea market, or frame a portrait of a favorite pet. Give hobbies and interests pride of place.
