Cool Teen Hangouts And Lounges
There comes a point when your kids grow out of their playroom. Legos and dolls are no longer cool, and neither is the primary color scheme. So put up your playroom and opt for a swanky modern lounge fit for video games, movies, and maybe even a ping-pong table. Teens want a cool place to bring friends that feels personalized and unique.
As children enter their teens, it can be a challenge to keep them close—but not so close that they feel they lack independence. A solution to this parenting problem can be very concrete: simply making room at home. At the same time, the space needs to offer enough privacy and enticing features that teens want to be there, rather than hanging out in places where they might not be as supervised.
