How to design a Shared Room for Boys
di Little Fairy Project on 11 Sep 2017
Designing a shared kids room is always a challenge. Whether you are a parent of two, three or more boys, the basic guideline is always the same: you have to put together all their personal tastes and interests.
PICK A THEME
First thing to do is, as always, to pick a theme. When we talk to our clients, we always recommend picking a more generic or a so-called, evergreen theme, something your boys will be interested in for a long time. If you think about it, the choice is quite broad, it can be anything, from sports to science, from travels to space. Choosing a more generic theme gives you the always opportunity to enrich and refresh your design with some new details.
One of the main dilemmas in a shared room is absolutely bed positioning. Depending on the size of your room and design there are a few options.
#1. Facing beds
#2. Corner beds
#3. Parallel beds
#4. Side-by-side beds
#5. Bunk beds
Even though we are talking about shared room design, it is always important to give each child his own space. This also has certain educational advantages, because this way your children will be given certain sense of responsibility and will be in charge of keeping their part of the room clean.
Designing a common area is always one of the best parts of design. Create an area for playing, reading, doing homework, listening to music, receiving friends. Your boys will surely be happy to contribute with their ideas and suggestions!
