Doting on children is natural. As parents, it is great to get things for them, right from their favourite chocolates to their loved animals. The real problem begins when your children have to share things among siblings, especially their rooms.
Sharing a room be painful for adults, let alone the kids. Rooms are an extension of your personality, be it for an adult or children. The key to a satisfactory and agreeing division of the bedroom between your kids is, giving them equal spaces and resources. Here are some amazing decor ideas for the shared rooms of your kids.
The first thing you need to take care of when your kids share a room is an asymmetry. The classical way of getting symmetry is using single beds which happens to be a very common idea for 2 kids sharing one room. Single beds are equal in size, shape and colour and thus there is a truce always. There could be thousands of designs and patterns for single beds, based on functionality (storage/without storage), aesthetics and material. Single beds resonate absolute symmetry to the room.
A long wall in your kids’ room, could give you another amazing juxtaposition of beds. Two width-wise adjoined beds give an appearance of train coaches. This design uses up long spaces where space is not enough to put 2 beds sideways. To make it more exciting you could build a play area on the room of the “coaches” with abundant space to for your kids to read and play. ‘Coaches’ offer privacy, you can have a glass partition as a common wall or wood or in case space permits quick stairs which go up to the play area.
A little variation in the coach-styled beds and you can make a tree-house. For a tree-house, you need a tall bedroom. Just between the beds, install a ladder which goes up to the tree-house-like play area making the whole structure look like a big ‘T’. A tall room also gives space to add shelves on both sides of the beds.
One of the most common styles of beds for a space-crunched room is the bunk beds. Bunk beds could be real fun although at least one of yours should be welcoming to the idea of climbing up and down the stairs.
Bunk Beds with Storage
You can add storage to bunk beds as well. Carve out drawers at the lower bed. Sheets, pillows and even toys can be stored in these underneath drawers. Once again it should not become a bone of contention with either of your off-springs.
Built-in Bunk Beds
A little variation to bunk beds can give your kids more secured beds with 3 sides covered. To make such bunk beds you need to create a cavity by enclosing bunk beds attached to a wall. Add storage beneath, shelves on the side walls to create more storage space.
With all those amazing bed ideas, you could decide different themes to decorate the walls of your kids’ bedrooms. Check out a great range of kids’ bedroom wall decals on our website.
