How To Create A Room To Be Shared By Two Children

It is not always possible for children to have their own room and they must sometimes share with a sibling. But children do need their own space to grow and thrive. It is important to give each child a zone that corresponds to his/her personality. This article offers a few tips on how to successfully split a room to satisfy the needs of children who share a room.

Some of the factors that must be considered first is the size of the room and the layout, the height of ceiling, and of course the age and gender of children. Depending on their age they might be able to participate in the planning of the room decor and arrangement. It is therefore important to listen to what they have to say.

If the room is large enough you can install a separation, perhaps a room divider or white-bedroom-furniturea curtain can workout just fine. If you can divide the room physically then each side could have its own ambiance distinct from the other. For example one child could have white bedroom furniture and the other could have a different color or even wood tones, respecting the privacy and the taste of each child.

If the room size does not offer any options besides bunk beds, you should arrange it in a way that each child has a little space in the room that is his or hers to decorate according to his/her taste, hang his/her own creations…

Sometimes a smaller room that has a ceiling high enough the room can be divided in three zones. Each child gets a loft bed with a desk and storage below that is his/hers alone, and a common area, in which you can install a unique bookcase, floating shelves, and a stereo or other items they might be able to share. Make it a place where they can have a few pillows where they might sit and talk, watch TV or play…

The important to remember is that each child’s growth and behavior will benefit from having an area that is a personal space.
