Design Ideas for Boy and Girl Siblings Who Share Bedroom
Nowadays, when we all cannot afford a large home with separate room for everyone – many families have their kids share a bedroom. However, when it comes to brothers and sisters sharing the same room, getting the right decor can be tricky. Certainly, in this case you would like to avoid gender-specific colours such as pink or blue but it does not mean you are just left with white or pale yellow options. Let' s see what are the other options, you can go with.
Shades of teal
Different shades of teal can be used in different ways such as plain teal comforters and window shades with floral print can make this room, any child would love. Apple green, pale grey and aqua blue work well for both genders. The combination of plain with floral pattern can come up with a great look. You must start with neutral colour such as grey, beige or apple green and add in more colours and prints there. If you want to go for bright colours – navy blue and red create a good combination.
Don’t go for any theme
It is obvious that princess theme bed can’t go well with a fire engine bed in a single room, so you must think again and again before combining two themes in a room shared by your boy and girl. Decorating in a more classic style—free of age-defining themes—may work better as the kids age into the room. You must go for a design that will grow with your kids and feel less childlike after few years.
Create coordination in room
It is better if you do not want to go for a specific theme but coordinating the room' s design will result in a more polished look. There is nothing wrong in letting each child decorate his or her own side of the bedroom. For example, let your kids choose their own removable wall decals—they can select the colours and styles they like. You can also ask them to choose their side of rug according to their own taste. Shapes can be matching but colours can be of their own choice.
Add organizational furniture
You will definitely need enough storage to keep books, toys and other clutter so, you must think carefully about how to organize the space so it works for both kids. A hinged toy bench at the foot of each bed can hold toys that are personal to each kid. If you have a big room, you can have a table that both of your kids can share to play or study.
