Top Ten Teen Hangout Areas and Link Party
Top Ten Teen Hangout Areas and Link Party
My girls are just small, but I still find myself worrying about what friends they will make when they go to school. And the teen years? I’m a little bit nervous to see how having two teenage daughters under one roof will be! But I hope I’m raising them to be good kids, the kind who will make good friends. And I hope I’m becoming the kind of mom who can make my kids and their friends always feel welcome at our home. (I will probably never be the cool mom, but that’s okay!)
We’ve built a playroom and kitchen for our kids (and we rounded up twelve great indoor kids play areas previously) but once the kids are older, they need a teen hangout space. This means they need a little bit of privacy, a lot of seating, and some fun “hip” decor. (See why I will never be the cool mom? 😉 I rounded up ten of my favorite rooms to share with you today!
And don’t forget to hop down and join the Remodelaholics Anonoymous weekend party for a chance to be featured or pinned!
Classic Movie Theater Room | A Stylish Interior
What group of teens wouldn’t love to hang out in this comfortable room? And the style is timeless so that you can invite your friends over for a movie night, too! Get the details of this theater room from A Stylish Interior.
Custom Loft Bed with Couch | CustomMade
If you don’t have a space space to devote to your teen’s hangout area, their room can work double duty. Love this custom loft bed with the couch underneath, by CustomMade.
Garage Redesigned to Teen Hangout Space | Houzz
This family turned their garage into teen hangout headquarters! See more pictures and get more details about this garage redesign by The Redesign Company via Houzz.
Industrial Modern Teen Bedroom and Hangout Space | Hot Style Design
If you have the space, give your teen their own sitting area with a small couch or beanbag chair and a coffee table. The exposed brick wall of this room, via Hot Style Design, give an edgy industrial feel to the room.
Organized School Calendar | Tatertots and Jello
Okay, your teen’s friends probably won’t flock to see this post-it school calendar, but it can give a fun vibe to the room while still keeping your teen organized and letting you know what they have going on, too. See how Tatertots and Jello put it together.
Simple Teen Game Room | Classic Style Home
Jennifer from Classic Style Home put together this simple game room for her younger boys, but it will grow with them all through high school!
Teen Bed Turned Sitting Area with Two Headboards | Design In The Woods
If you lack space for a teen hangout, and your teen’s room isn’t large enough for an additional couch, put a double headboard around the bed to create mod-style seating. See more of this great room by Design In The Woods.
Corner Couch Hangout Space | Hiya Papaya
Even a small nook can become a cool teen space with a small corner couch, like this one via Hiya Papaya.
Attic Space With Teen Lounge and Study Desk | My Design Dump
Autumn from My Design Dump transformed an unused attic into a great hangout and study space for her client’s children. Go check out the rest of the details (like the awesome striped bathroom walls!)
Corner Couch Teen Hangout | MadeByGirl
I love the modern and eclectic look of this corner couch sitting area created by designer Emily Mugannam, via MadeByGirl.

Hey Cassity! It was so nice to meet you at Haven in August. Thanks so much for hosting!
Love some of these, I wish there were tutorials to go with the ones I like. 🙁 I mean, I can figure them out. But it would be easier and less time consuming if I didn’t have to figure it out! 🙂 Thanks for gathering them all in one place!
I have had 6 kids and two are still teens. I firmly believe in giving kids a place to play (not hang out – I know semantics) I have a game room with couches for watching movies or playing the Wii. 5 game tables. BUT caution: We removed the big siesta sac because too much snuggling was going on while they laid on it or each other. Privacy – NO I won’t hesitate to walk downstairs on my way to get something. I always have food for the kids. Sometimes I make something but there is always popcorn and salsa and chips in the pantry. Then I talk to their friends while they eat. It’s good to know who their friends are and my house is “the place” to come play. Sometimes I put black lights in and bring out dollar store highlighters. They love it. Or I let them cook. They are always having fun when they do more than “hang out”
Great ideas, Marcie! Thanks for sharing!
