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.

Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14..

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
