Anyone have any ideas for a pre-teen bedroom makeover?

My dd is turning 11, and we're redoing her room as her birthday present.  We're putting in new flooring (probably laminate).  I just don't know what to do as far as paint colors, walls, colors, etc.  I want something still fun and colorful but not too little kid looking.  Not too grown up and boring either.  Any ideas or pics anyone would like to share?

Bump wall paint and wall stickers with colors she likes

what is she into? Most preteends are into animal print. Paint it her fave color and buy zebra bedding and curtains (or cheetah, if she likes that more).

I'd go off of her interests and likes, then check out pinterest.  You could do each wall a different color or a theme room like a city she's always wanted to go, maybe a royal theme with a cool chandelier.

Hmmm...as far as hobbies, she's into gymnastics, arts and crafts.  She's also becoming super interested in nail polish and fashion.

considering she is a pre-teen, i would ask her... even if you want to surprise her ask her.

i would never do that to my children.  they have a voice, they have likes and dislikes, why spend the time and energy doing something she might not even like at the end.

when i re-did my then 3 year old DDs room, she told me what she wanted, did she get everything, no we compromised, but in the end she has a voice that matters.

That could be a good idea.  She has a ton of clothes and even a pair of sneakers in animal print.  She likes both zebra and cheetah.
