There could be many problems coming out when you face decorating a shared bedroom. It can be more complicated when your boy and girl share a same bedroom, because of the gender gap. You need to let them settle down to discussing with each other about how the bedroom looks like. Try to find some relevant ideas from them to meet both of their requirements. Right here are some wise bedroom decorating ideas and pictures for this scenario.
Be All One, No Partiality Bias
As you care for both of their feelings, you usually try to meet all of their expectations when design the bedroom. But as time goes by, quarrel still can’t be avoided. For example, they may strive for their space, décor, styles and colors. But it can be largely reduced if you adopt a unifying theme like pictures below.
If they do need differences, these themes can be easily tweaked. You can add some dolls on your girl’s bed and throw pillow in sports theme at boy’s side.
Sufficient Space for Them
As there’re two children in one room, you need to offer each of them enough space to live, study, and store items. Use baskets in different colors to reflect their different personalities. Give both of them a big bookshelf to keep their own books and other stuff, like the picture below. Allocate drawers fairly to them, in case a possible fight for space in the future. If space is sufficient, you’d better give each of them one cabinet or chest.
Bunk beds are recommended
Bunk beds work quite fine when people have more than one child in a small bedroom. It saves the ground space, leaving more space for them to play, like the pictures below. Separate twin-sized beds and loft bunk beds are creative recommendations. Be careful that if your children fight with each other frequently, you’d better not adopt this idea of bunk beds.
It’s very important to create private area in a shared bedroom, especially for opposite sex siblings. There should be partitioned space for them. For example, furniture like bookshelves, dressers, drawers and chests should be staggered to face their own sides. You can also decorate the bed with curtains in their favorite styles. By doing this you can restrict them in the opposite side. Curtain can be also used to hang across the room to make a boundary.
