Shared Bedroom – Not everyone will have the privilege to have their own bedroom to themselves and sometimes through a lack of rooms available boys and girls might have to share a bedroom together. For young children sharing a bedroom is fun but when kids get a little older they often want to have some space to themselves and make it theirs by decorating their half of the room.
Decorating a boy – girl shared bedroom can be very tricky, of course boys en girls are very different but with these boy – girl shared bedroom decorating ideas you can still achieve a stylish room that will make both parties happy. We will give you the tips you need to make the room work and some great examples of boy – girl shared bedroom.
Divide the room
You could use furniture to divide the room such as back-to-back desks or book cases. Of course you could also use curtains or cubicle walls to divide the room and give each child the privacy they need.
Each child will have their own sense of style and you should try to give each child their own choice to color and then combine both colors by painting different walls different colors or paint the bottom half of the wall one color and the top half the other.
Personalize each child’s designated area to their liking, it can be hard if both kids are the total opposite but each child need to feel comfortable in their own space and by keeping the furniture plain and matching you can still achieve a unified look.
This are some great examples of Boy – Girl shared bedrooms.
If you only got a small bedroom then the only way to place the beds might be side by side. You can still make a clear separation between boy and girl by using different bedding and artwork on the wall.
This is a great way to separate a boy and a girl’s personal space by placing the beds on different walls and making the adjoining headpiece a cool wall to place personal items and decorations. This solution will give each child privacy as well as making the room look bigger and using the space more efficient.
This is another example of placing the beds against the wall and putting the bedheads together. This is a great look if you got twins or if both your kids are still young. When kids are a bit older you could easily separate the room with a curtain as shown above.
I also like how they painted the room in different colors, green and blue stripes for the boy and pink and blue stripes for the girl, with blue being the main color of the room. If you do have the space, place each bed on a opposite wall so you can divide the room through the middle so each child will have their own wall and floorspace.
Decorating a boy – girl shared bedroom is not easy but hopefully you got some inspiration and new ideas on how to make a boy – girl shared room work for both kids.
