As tweens get older, they seem to spend a lot of time hanging out with friends. Wouldn’t it be great for them to have a space of their own to do just that, other than their bedroom?
Jen from Tatertots & Jello recently shared a reveal on her blog of a room she designed for her tweens/teens to hang out in and we just love it. From the comfy loungers and bright pillows and the funky media stand made from an old table, to the geometric patterns in black and white and the amazing selfie portrait wall, the room is full of touches that make this a fun space that tweens will love to hang out in for years to come.
If you have an old playroom with toys that aren’t getting used much anymore, this would be a fantastic way to update the room. You could also incorporate some of the decorating ideas into your tween’s bedroom to freshen it up.

And if your kids use Instagram, you’ll want to check out Jen’s Spring Instagram Display board with free printables for a fun way to display some of their favourite Instagram photos in their room.
Thanks Jen for letting us share your amazing tween hangout room with our readers!
