3 Interior Design Ideas for Siblings That Room Together

Not everyone has the luxury of having their own bedroom. Therefore, when your kiddos are stuck sharing a room, it’s important to decide on an interior design that they can both cope with. From colors and carpet kinds, to room of posters and crafty stuff, the following 3 interior design ideas are perfection for siblings that room together.

On a side note: If these suggestions are what you would consider lackluster, you should look to professional custom home builders for better ideas. They have dealt with these kinds of sibling room dilemmas before, and would have the best professional advice.

Bunkbeds are Godsends

For multiple kiddos in the same bedroom, bunkbeds are an absolute must-have. These go-to furnishings ensure that youngsters can sleep in the same room at once, without sacrificing space for ginormous beds. Back in the 80s, bunkbeds weren’t very comfortable. The mattresses were thin and lumpy, much like an old-fashioned futon. And you never knew when your top bunkmate would shift and come crashing down. However, revamped and modern bunkbeds offer better support in plush mattresses, and a steadier, steadfast system that holds the top bunk in stable place. Plus, bunkbeds can inspire imaginations, since a sheet can be tucked into the top bunk to flow down and create a canopy/fort for the bottom bunk.

Draw a Line Down the Middle/Halve the Room

As kids get older, they want their own space to be creative and expressive. When your children reach those preteen years, perhaps split their bedroom down the middle. Use a piece of painter’s tape, or make an agreed invisible line, to halve the room—one side per kid. Children can decorate their side however they please, from punk rock in hot pink and solid black, to band geek with music posters and instruments galore. They can also decide on neutral territory, where both kids can gather for lounging conversation and leisure time.

Decide on a Central Theme Together

If your kiddos get along and share some of the same interests, they could decide to keep their bedroom as-is, resulting in a central theme that they can design together. For example, some teenage boys go with music and video game themes. The color of the walls doesn’t matter so much, but you will need hardwood floors [because teenagers are messy], a couple of gaming chairs, and an entertainment stand for their consoles. You should also make sure there is plenty of wall space for their music posters.

The aforementioned interior design ideas are great for siblings that room together. Sure, your kids might still have a tiff or two over their bedroom space, but these ideas can cut down on arguments and encourage collaboration.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
