Teen Bedding - Comforters for Teenagers
When purchasing teen bedding, it is best to get their input. However, some teens simply shrug and say “whatever” making it hard to choose the perfect design or colors.
Remember to choose teen bedding that will grow with your teen. Avoid trendy characters because usually fads fade within a year. Instead, use bright colors or patterns that appeal to your teenager’s gender and sense of fashion. You can use comforter fabrics for active teens who spend a lot of time lounging in their room.
Colors and Patterns Suitable to Teens
Once popular in the 1980s, neon colors are incredible fashionable. Bright pinks, greens, yellows and oranges came back onto the scene a few years ago and have not decreased in popularity. Teen bedding in these vibrant colors are great for a teenage girl’s room. Teen girls also like dots, unusual patterns and stripes.
Ask a teenage girl what their favorite colors are. You’ll usually hear:
Earth tones – browns, greens, white
Jewel tones – purples, emerald greens, bright yellow
Ocean shades – greens and blues
Teenage boys usually prefer masculine colors like chocolate brown, dark blue, gray or black. Many will happily accept plaid teen bedding, especially if you can tie it into their wall color and curtains.
Consider the Material for Teen Bedding
Think out of the box when purchasing teen bedding. Teens can be tough on their bedding, especially if they spend time in bed playing video games or talking on their phone. Lots of tossing and turning and flopping down occur. Cotton or polyester bedding options may tear at the seams or wear quickly. Consider tougher material like corduroy and denim. They come in a variety of colors and patterns.
Another option is to purchase duvet colors that cover the original comforter. Duvet covers are easy to wash and allow your child to change their teen bedding look every few weeks by alternating covers as desired. You can find duvet covers in most bedding and department stores.
