Designing a Shared Bedroom for Kids: 3 Tips to Keep in Mind



Housing two personalities in one room isn’t always easy but it’s completely doable, especially with some help from the right remodeler. To help you get started, here are a few shared bedroom design ideas to keep in mind.

  1. Give Each Child Their Own Space

While kids may not value privacy in the same way that adults do, they too benefit from having a space of their own. The simplest way to divide a bedroom space is to put up curtains, but you can also separate sleeping areas with an open shelf as a divider. If you have older kids and noise will be an issue for one party, consider having sliding or pocket doors installed.

  1. Lean Toward Classic

Children grow so quickly that it’s best not to use any specific themes in a bedroom. Instead, go for neutral colors and accessories. Apply current interests to objects around the room that can be easily swapped, but keep furniture classic. Should your children change their preferences, you can easily update bedding and other accessories. This will help ensure bedrooms grow with children and keep them from looking dated.

  1. Invest in Storage

With two children in a room, you need to make sure that there is a place for everything. This could mean bins for toys, shelves for books and hooks for hanging clothing. When purchasing beds, consider those that come with built-in storage options. Aside from keeping everything neat and tidy, having ample storage frees up floor space for playtime.
