What to do when two brothers have to share a room? How to decorate whether the room will be occupied by two children, two girls or boy and girl? We offer solutions to decorate shared dorms.
The problem usually arises when it comes to rooms for a boy and a girl or when the ages of the children are very different. It is advisable that each one have their own space and feel it as theirs.
Shared children's rooms
Let's start with the types of beds that can be used. The dimensions of the bedroom and the use that will be given to it will influence the choice. When one or both are babies it is clear that they will use the crib. But when they grow up, we are sure that we consider that there is space for a playground or study area. As types of beds we can think of:
- Individual beds: if you have a large bedroom are perfect and its placement in parallel or L will depend on the surface of the room.
- Compact beds: in one piece you have two beds, one of them can be hidden under the other during the day providing more space to play or study. It is more practical at the time of opening that the lower bed does not have a mechanism of folding legs although it assumes that the furniture will be higher.
- Berths: sure it is the option that gives children the most excitement. They can be superimposed or in train form, for which you will need more space.
- Folding beds: by day they are hidden in a piece of furniture and your children can enjoy more space to play.
When each child will have their own space, when choosing the color you can choose to use the same for the two areas and then decorate with textile accessories, rugs, decorative details ... in two different colors depending on the child's sex or the girl.
In the case of a boy and a girl, we do not always have to think about pink and blue, there are other options such as greens, oranges, yellows ... that on a neutral basis combine perfectly.
The other option consists of using totally different colors to separate the two environments that each of the children will occupy. These colors can contrast intensely and thus customize them according to your tastes.
When the ages of the children are very different, each one with their hobbies and their own tastes and interests and the spaciousness of the bedroom allows it, it will be good to separate both areas with some type of low wall or wooden structure that delimits more the spaces. You can integrate it in the decoration if you use the same color as in the furniture or on the wall.
