However, when it is a girl and boy sharing a room together the task of making the space functional for both can become a daunting and challenging task. Luckily, parents facing this unenviable situation can sleep easy knowing that with a little bit of creativity and hard work a boy and girl shared bedroom is possible.

Depending on the ages of the kids, room sharing can become even more difficult. If the kids are closer in age it may be easier to design the room because a gender-neutral theme can be selected. However, when the children’s ages differ greatly more time needs to be spent making sure the room will be comfortable for both kids. Since every child has different tastes, temperaments and preferences it is best to divide the layout of the bedroom into three spaces: two private areas and one shared zone. No matter the age of the child, the bedroom is often a private sanctuary that kids can retreat to for comfort and relaxation. Therefore, if a boy and girl are sharing a space together it is important to give each child their own unique space. For a boy, one side of the room may be decorated in a sports theme while for the girl the opposite side may be a princess theme. With the room divided in two sides, create a common space in the room that can be shared by both the boy and girl.

In a traditional bedroom used by only one person storage space is often not a concern; however, when sharing a room finding enough storage becomes even more important. If there is a closet in the room, divide the space in half so that each child has enough room for their belongings. Rooms without a closet or when the closet is not big enough require more creativity to find storage space. Using under the bed storage bins or built-in-shelves can be an excellent alternative for storing the child’s belongings. Remember that since the room is being shared it is important to divide the storage space equally so that one child does not feel left out.

Aesthetically, it is hard to match the interests and design styles of both boys and girls. Therefore, the shared bedroom does not have to be perfectly in sync and matching; however, each element in the room needs to coexist. One way to achieve a balance in aesthetics is to select a color theme for the room. Pick a color that both the boy and girl will enjoy and try to match each element in the room to the chosen color. Room sharing may not be an ideal situation; however, boys and girls can coexist in the same space. If this situation becomes a reality, follow the above tips and guidelines to make a boy and girl shared bedroom the best possible.

    Is it just me, or are all these rooms a fairly good size?! The room I have to work with is a 10×10 box with one wall taken up by a closet, another wall has the door on it (so a bed sticks out into the doorway) and the 3rd wall has a window that is off-center and closer to the closet. A very strange layout and only one wall that is completely good to use for anything. I hate bunk beds, but may have to use them. Except we have low ceilings and keeping the fan is a must due to temperature. I love the rooms pictured here, but don’t see that any of them would work for me. (sigh)

    How old are your kids? We found that 2 ikea white loftbeds with the desk and cupboard/closet (took 3-4 hours each to put them together alone and required some muscle too) were very convenient. Because they’re ikea we let them scribble on them, do their art with abandon, stickers, etc. doesn’t look pretty like these but with art on the walls they seem really happy.
