Alternately, you can line up three enlarged photos on canvas prints of friends, siblings or self-portraits from infancy up to teen years. Fashion and music-related are also popular photo onto canvas art themes they may find interesting.
Wall clocks and mirrors
Create wall art from interesting clocks and mirrors, a perfect example of things that can enhance a room and at the same time make a wonderful wall decor. You can choose from a variety of wall clocks in different shapes, colours and of different styles.
If a plain yet elegant room without so much hanging on her wall, then printed wallpapers or wall murals can be the answer. Faint-coloured, soft flower-designed, or giant flower photo printed wall mural can be just perfect for a teenage girls room!
Or how about that smaller feature wall? You can now get your own personalised wallpaper printed easily at a very affordable cost. Simply choose an image that you love and get it blown and immerse yourself in a scene! There are several online photo canvas printing companies now that offer printing on self-adhesive textile wallpaper, so you can even hang it your self without getting a decorator in! It’s easy to install and doesn’t damaged your walls as it has a special re-positionable adhesive.
Posters of favourite artists, bands, athletes, and fashion icons are never out of style, especially for teens. Instead of sticking them up with blu-tack or tape and ruining your newly decorated walls, order some of the same wall mural material above, but choose a small 1m x 60cm size for a great peel-able sticker that won’t ruin your walls.
A decorative shelf painted with rosy pink or royal purple also makes a great wall decor. Aside from being decorative itself, your teen can stack her books and display her collection of pictures and other stuff on this shelf. You can get creative ideas of shelf designs on different home furnishing stores and magazines.
Personalized name art prints
A different type of wall decor that can be great for teens is personalized name art print. This is usually a horizontal set of frames with different letters comprising her first name on each frame. The material of the letters can be photos or country-style, cloth-stitched letters, or any other great material you can think of. Effectively you could do the same with a selection of photos onto canvas prints but with graphic artwork.
I hope some of these tips have been useful to you. Whether you are getting a new house or redecorating your teens room, always consider their favourite things and taste. Do not also forget that teens love to get creative and unique, so let shop around with you in order to get the best wall art for their room.
