How to choose teen accent chairs based on lifestyles?

  • Traditional accent chairs can fit into any teenager’s bedroom’s aesthetic because of its classic and elegant look. These accent chairs come in various colors and fabrics depending on your preferences.
  • Casual accent chairs (armless chairs with neutral colors) creates a relaxed atmosphere. Casual chairs are also very comfy.
  • For a modern look, you can choose armless accent chairs with vibrant colors, such as red, blue, or yellow. Modern armless chairs are modest yet can totally transform a teen’s bedroom.
  • Those who prefer a luxurious style can choose sculptural accent chairs. These luxury chairs create a fancy look because of their artistic appearance rather than convenience.

How to choose your teen accent chair's size?

  • Consider the room’s space. Is your teen’s room large enough to accommodate the accent chair they’re interested in? Or will it make their room look too cramped?
  • It’s better to measure the width and depth of the space in order to know which size fits best before making any purchase. You don’t need an accent chair that takes up so much room if the room is small. Remember that there should be enough space to move around in front of the chair. If the chair’s dimensions are the same as the available space’s measurements, try making more space or opt for a smaller teen accent chair.
  • Accent chairs should sit at the same height as the sofa and other chairs.
  • Try to sit on the accent chair for a while before purchasing it. Make sure the chair is comfortable enough for your child’s height. Those who are tall should choose an accent chair with more legroom. If they want to curl up in their chair, choose a deep and wide one.
  • Larger accent chairs are heavier and harder to move. This might not be a good option if you live in an apartment.

What material is preferable for teen accent chairs?

To help decide which fabric is best for your teen, think about what’s most important to them: the physical comfort or the appearance?

  • Natural and synthetic leather: long-lasting for daily usage; synthetic varieties are available in all sorts of attractive colors.
  • Accent chairs with materials such as wood, metal, and plastic are easier to wipe clean. However, they feel colder than others.
  • Soft materials like cushy upholstery and velvet leather have a warm and pleasant surface.
  • Robust wool-based materials are more resistant to stains and can easily be cleaned, unlike polyester blends.
  • If their room already has upholstered furniture, you can opt for a different material such as faux fur for a unique contrast.

How to pick the right color for your teen accent chair?

Colors play an important role when choosing teen accent chairs, just like designs and materials.

Complementary Colors

The easiest way to pick an accent chair color is to base it off of the different colors in your child’s room. You can use the color wheel to help you figure out the complementary colors of their bedroom.

  • Examples of complementary colors include red and green, yellow and violet, and blue and orange.
  • If they have various green decor and furniture in their room, like a lamp, a plant, and a nightstand, try going for a red accent chair.

Statement Colors

If you’re looking to purchase a teen accent chair to add more charm and design to your teenager’s room, you can opt for accent chairs with statement colors or patterns. These colors create an exhilarating statement. For instance, you can try out a color they like but don’t usually have.

  • Jewel-tones such as sapphire blue, ruby red, amethyst purple, and emerald green work with a neutral-toned bedroom.
  • Patterns: chevron stripes and floral prints bring attention to the chair. Patterns are good for hiding dirt, such as pet fur.
  • Other colors that make a statement include cobalt green, red, purple wine, and yellow.

Matching room decor colors

Another easy way to pick an accent chair’s color is to match it with their existing bedroom items. Match the chair with their duvet, wardrobe, or other decor patterns and colors they already have.

  • If they have a gray duvet, you can easily pick gray as an accent chair color.
  • If they have black and white curtains, you can go for an accent chair with a black and white pattern.

Matching the accent chair with other decors or furniture will keep symmetry in their bedroom.
