Sick ‘n’ tired of barricading your
room from your besties? We’re showing you how to take your space
from crazy cluttered hazard zone to an awesome hangout for you and
all of your buds.
From twin bed to daytime lounge
Converting your twin bed into a comfy
day bed (also known as a place where you and your friends can relax
and gab about your latest crushes) is as easy as 1-2-3. If it’s not
already there, move your bed length-wise against one wall in your
room. Toss a few bright cushions or pillows (we like the one below)
against the wall to give ya some support. It will look just like a
sofa and become you and your BFF’s new fave place to hang!

You and your bestie may know everything
about each other, but the last thing she needs to see is your dirty
undies littering the floor. Do your relationship a favor and buy a
cute hamper, then make a point of tossing all of your worn clothes
into it before going to bed. You can grab a plain one, like the
hamper below, and decorate it with puffy paint and rhinestones if you

Comfy beanbag chairs, like the ones
below, will give you and your BFF a great place to relax after a long
day at school. Plus, they can easily be moved around your room and
placed wherever you want. Store them when your BFF’s not there,
then pull them out for some fun seating.
Feel the fuzz
To make your room even more inviting,
create a friend zone with a fuzzy rug that’ll feel great under your
toes. It will make your room super cozy…and offer up some comfy
seating or extra padding when your buds are sleepin’ over.

Get your game on
Do you love playing rummy with your
BFFs or hosting marathon Monopoly tournaments? Stow a basket of fun
board games and decks of cards in a corner so you can pull it out
whenever you’re looking for something to do.
