Personalized Wall Art for Teens: 7 Ideas Your Child Will Love
If you're a parent of a teenager, you know they can be hard to please. And when it comes to decorating their room, their taste might be a lot more, erm, expressive than yours. You don't always agree with what they put up on their walls, and you want to guide them to the right design direction, but you also want it to be something they genuinely like.
Customized wall art is your best bet. You can make it utterly personal -- which is what teenagers are all about -- while keeping it visually pleasing and display-worthy.
Here are 7 customized wall pieces we've especially picked for picky teenagers like yours.
1. Magnificent monogram
This canvas piece is a perfect meeting of young and classy! Note the cool dark background paired with the bright blue calligraphy. The best part? It can be customized to display your teen's name and birth year.
2. Personal motivation
Here's one of the most popular quotes among youngsters, made more personal by adding your child's own name on it. This inspiring reminder makes a wonderful gift for sons, daughters, and even friends.
A commissioned portrait is one of the most personal gifts, and when done right, it's also a marvelous piece of art. For youngsters, a vibrant digital portrait would be awesome, like this one that reminds us of video game graphics.

Sometimes, a parent's loving words are all it takes to pull on a teen's hard-to-reach heartstrings. Turn your heartfelt message into cute artwork -- like the customizable canvas above -- and your teen will enjoy seeing your words every day.
