Budget-Friendly Comforters and Bedding Sets for Tween Girls
*****These comforters and bedding sets for tween girls are a fabulous way of getting your fun-to-fanciful decor off to a great start without draining your decorating budget from the get-go.
Tween girls are a complex mix of little girl and teen-to-be. I can attest to how confounding these next few years can be; you might not recognise your child from the one you tucked into bed just last night!
Uh-huh . . . who knew?
And along with the mix up are all the change-outs you'll be making--you haven't been this busy since your tween girl turned toddler not too awfully long ago. Everything in your tween's bedroom needs to have that 'grown up' look about it without being too over the top. Sounding complicated? Not to worry; I'll show you the way to decorating success beginning with tween-friendly, cool to funky bedding: comforters, bedspreads and duvets to 'tween die for.'
Scroll down to peruse more of some really cool ideas you'll both agree on (savor the moment, as agreeing may not happen again!).

That Pesky Budget
Keeping on a budget can get tricky; I know, I've spent more than I bargained for plenty of times before realizing that I could find a cheaper look-a-like for everything I fell in love with. The trick is to find out just what it is about that pricey item you love: texture, color, shape, style?
Then find that item by searching the web, ebay and even yard sales; it's out there somewhere.
These animal print bedding sets are perfect for tween girls, as teens love them just as much, so there's no having to switch it out come her thirteenth birthday. Another great feature is their price of under $50. Pair these up with the window panels above. A fun way to hang them is in the same color order found in the bedding.
There's lots of energy with these tween-to-teen bedding sets.

Tween girls are full of fun and energy and their rooms are best expressed in hot pinks and limes mixed with neon yellow ~ all on the same window with panels hung in a rainbow pattern.
How fun is that?
Mix and match for a look that's all tween. These panels are super~cheap, too. I was surprised to find this pair for under $10. For two! And the reviews from other moms and dads are impressive. The sky's the limit with these rainbow faves. Can you tell I'm a bit excited?

The Power of 'Plain Ol' Bedding: Solid Tween Comforter Sets
It seems counter-intuitive to give a lot of decor strength to a plain bedding set, but quite conversely, plain bedding can proffer the most freedom in your decorating palette, allowing you to accessorize in an unrestricted.
Plain is an 'anything goes' option in your tween's space. Too, you can use the bedding fr years to come as long as it holds up well. Your tween is free to express herself with wall art of any genre, too.
Tween and teen girls love fuzzy material and this comforter set delivers while it promises a comfy~cozy bed she'll love. The colors are all tween girl, so there's a lot you can choose from in that scheme. I'd like to see the sheer window panels above in three hues paired together on one window or a fun, sherbet look.
Just think of this plain comforter as a blank canvas, ready for your tween's own expression.

Using Accessories Wisely in Your Tween's Room
The Busy 10, 11, & 12 Year Old Girl
Accessories can be a good thing. Or not. Use 'cute little things' in your tween girl's space discriminately and make each piece count. Keep in mind: too much of anything is clutter ~ no matter if it's a bunch of teddy bears, trinkets or socks, it's clutter and not at all restful.
And in my experience, tweens and teens have an innate tendency to be messy, anyway. Even cute little chotchkies can be a nemesis to tweens, so be sparing.
It's best to think of accessories like wall art where large pieces make a bigger impact versus dueling little picture on a wall or night stand.
This selection of hot pink bedding sets has the high-energy design to make that impressive focal point. I suggest using plain window treatments with these sets. A good example of decoration overload is the matching polka dot set/window valance in the middle. The eye bounces between the bed and window; it's not a smooth transition and the valance dilutes the the effect of the bed as focal point. Less in more.

Proper Sizing for Your Tween Girl's Wall Art
|Wall Art Poster Idea for Tweens|
I'm forever preaching about wall art and sizing things up beforehand. If your artwork isn't properly appointed it will either get lost in a great expanse of wall or be so big it's overbearing
I'm sure you've seen tiny pictures. Alone. On a giant wall.
This means your efforts are lost and the effect of the wall art is so greatly paled, the piece is downright distracting ~ like a spot on your face that shouldn't be there. Remember, just because it's art doesn't mean it will look good wherever you hang it.
Keep things as big as possible against the wall. Think big wall, big art and vice versa. To avoid a cluttered look, opt for a single piece of art versus lots of little pieces.
Stick to posters that are standard, 36" x 24" size, as you won't have to buy another frame with each poster change. Poster frames can be bought really cheaply at big box craft stores on sale or with a generous coupon. Most posters are available in standard size so you're not limited in your choices.
Wall Decals: The WoW Decor for Less - Fun Tween Girl Art
|Budget-Friendly Wall Decals for Tween Girls|
Wall decals have to be one of the easiest options for decorating tween girls' bedrooms. They come in a countless number of themes and genres, sizes and shapes and all colors of the rainbow ~ sounds pretty 'tweeny' to me!
What's more, wall decals are removable, reusable, washable and easy to hang. This elephant decal is available in several sizes. I was impressed with the pictures sent in from parents (just click the link).
You get so much bang for your buck with wall decals. Make your own mural or create a cozy nook made of flowers, peace signs or animal spots. The choice is all yours.
|Hot Pink Chandelier for Tween Girls|
Budget-Friendly Hot Pink Chandelier for Tween Girls
I always refer to chandeliers as a room's crowning jewel.. These lovely fixtures have the power to transform a space from just okay to opulent with the flip of a switch.
Chandeliers can be hung in a corner or the room's center. Too, they''re available in any number of sizes and shapes.
If you plan on using the piece several years, I suggest going for a slightly older~looking design you can enjoy uninterrupted. Many are plug in ready right out of the box.
This pink chandelier will work in your tweens space quite nicely and is very affordable at under $50.
