This room is shared by two very different girls—one a tomboy and the other a girly-girl. By giving each girl her own personalized space, two opposites can live in harmony. No matter what challenge you face (two kids of different genders or ages, or more than two kids in a room), we've got design solutions!
The first step to planning a combined space is asking your kiddos what colors they'd like in their room. If there's an overlapping color, start there. If not, pick two complementary colors from your kids' favorites and make those main hues in the room.
In shared rooms, storage and organization are key. To make cleanup time hassle-free, label bins with their contents or each child's name.
Bedding can be a big deal when it comes to sharing a room. If your kids are up for compromise, having the same bedding will unite a room. If that's a no-go, try finding sets that come in more than one color. That way each bed looks unique, but the room feels cohesive because it's united by the shared pattern.
Another option is to find bedding in graphic patterns, like polka dots and chevron, and colors, such as orange, yellow, green, and gray, that isn't gender- or age-specific.
Gray or neutral bedding in a children's room allows for bright punches of color on walls, rugs, pillows, curtains, and more!
Give Each Kid Their Own Space
Monograms above each bed, desk, or dresser are easy ways to personalize the room.
Hang one memo board per child and allow them to put personal trinkets and artwork on it.
Let your little ones choose pillows and stuffed animals to adorn their own bed (especially if you won the same bedding battle).
Wall decals come in all shapes, sizes, and patterns—from fairy castles to rockets blasting into space. They're easily changeable, budget-friendly ways to decorate.
Keep Furniture Neutral
Buying gender- and theme-neutral major furniture pieces, such as beds, dressers, nightstands, and desks, ensures longevity. Furniture with a timeless design will allow you to change out the theme and colors in the room without the furniture clashing.
Tip! Look for features like classic, clean lines and simple knobs on furniture that will work as kids grow and change.
Multi-functional furniture is never a bad thing! This dresser is also a storage bin.
