This is a T shaped bonus room for 3 older teenage boys. It is very plain.
The door entrance to room is at the top of the T. There is a table and window in one side of the top of the T. The other door just leads into a small side room. Any suggestions to snazz this room up?

Here's a non-plain bonus room for teens. Is it too much?

very cool. I wonder what is used on the wall with the desk and chairs. It sort of looks like colored foil for wallpaper.

I love that room. If I were a teen and had that room all my friends would com to me because I wouldn't want to leave.

Do they use the table at all? If not, my sons always loved weight lifting equipment or exercise machines. You can ask them what there preference is. Usually, you can even pick up some used weight lifting benches or good after Christmas sales. We have a shop called "Play It Again Sports" here in SC too.
I see no color either. Most futons I have been on are not comfortable. If you need a dual purpose couch, try a day bed because you can put a comfortable mattress on it and large cushions against the "back" of it, or use a sectional or couch with reclining chairs.
Happy Holidays!

I love a rustic adirondack , lodge or camp look in a space under the eaves. I would paint the ceiling the same color of the walls. I would use a warmer deeper brown or red. Use buffalo prints, bandanna prints, and Navajo prints and ticking. Get club chairs or chaise lounge chairs. Warm it up with lamps. Put odds and ends in baskets. Make it rustic and masculine.

I like the horizontal blinds you have currently but can see that light can be an issue as it looks like it is the only window.

Perhaps a 2 1/2 slat to allow more light in?
