Designing a comfortable and attractive shared children’s bedroom
While ideally everyone would like to have their own bedroom as a private sanctuary, raising multiple children in an average-sized home can make this impossible. Having three or more kids in the same house often requires that some siblings pair up in a shared bedroom. Luckily, with the right décor arrangements and storage furniture options you can still establish a personal space for each little one without building an expensive addition on your home. Here are some tips to get started.
Expressive color schemes
A pair of brothers or sisters might want to define their space through unique color schemes. Consider getting your children's input about their preferred hues in order to designate each sibling's side of the room. If the colors clash dramatically, a neutral tone in the center or mingled with each side will even out the design.
If you have enough space to do so, consider inserting a central stylish wooden cabinet as a makeshift wall to separate the bedroom and provide each child with privacy. This will create a unique divider that doubles as functional storage for clothes, books, school supplies or toys. However, your kids can still communicate with each other easily from across the room so as not to feel too distant in the same area.
For smaller bedrooms or working with three or more children in one room, you may have to get creative with your available floor space. In these cases, lofted or bunk beds will allow you to build upward instead of outward in the room. Certain models can also be arranged perpendicularly to fit a desk or extra storage underneath the top bed.
