A teenage retreat is a great place for a growing young adult to relax, study and to hang out with their friends. At Classic Cabins, we have a wide range of cabins and backyard studios that make for the perfect teenage retreat. Each one is sturdy and beautifully designed — all you need are great interiors to match.
Need inspiration? Turn your backyard studio into the perfect teenage retreat with these interior design ideas:
A Book Lover’s Dream
For the teenager who loves books and fantasy worlds, the perfect retreat would be a cosy reading nook. Decorate the space with squashy armchairs, an attractive coffee table, and of course, a large shelf full of their favourite books. Be sure to pick out a cute and quirky bookend too to complete the look.
Add a splash of colour and sophistication with a patterned rug and colourful pillows. You should also make sure that there is plenty of lighting available — pick a gorgeous ceiling lamp as the main light and add smaller table or floor lamps in case your teen needs additional light for reading.
An Edgy Artist’s Hideout
Whether your teen loves to paint, draw or play music, an edgy artist’s hideout will help foster creativity. Set aside one area of the cabin as a work area, with a sturdy desk and a comfortable chair. There should also be a shelf with storage areas for whatever tools and equipment they may need. This will give them enough space to work on their art.
Another part of the room should be for relaxing and gathering their thoughts — a nice sofa and a cool bean bag chair or oversized floor cushion makes the space even more inviting. You can also paint one side of the cabin walls with chalkboard paint, allowing them to draw or write down ideas directly onto the wall.
A Tropical Fantasy
If your backyard studio is also near the pool, you can turn your teen retreat into an extension of this area. Bamboo or wicker furniture coupled with rich blue and green fabrics with splashes of orange emulate the colours of a tropical beach. Translucent linen curtains give the interiors a soft, fresh glow.
You can also use shells, coconut husks and maybe even potted palm trees to complete the look.
When it comes to teen retreats, anything goes. Your interiors should reflect your child’s interests and personality. Be sure to work with them to create the perfect retreat.
