There’s no doubt that a shared room for siblings is a difficult design challenge. From opposing interests to designating personal space, creating a room that kids share requires a lot of problem solving.
Pam Ginocchio from Project Junior worked with our Interior Design Specialists to completely make over the room for her kids Gray and Sloane. See the full reveal on Project Junior and scroll down to enter our $500 Room Makeover Giveaway!
Here are the five top tips she learned about making over a shared room:
1. Re-think the traditional room layout. You’d be surprised how fresh and new a room can feel by moving around furniture, especially for a shared space.
2. Create individual nooks for each kid. Play up the things they love with a reading nook or dress up station. Plus, every big kid wants a workspace complete with their very own desk!
3. Find a fun way to organize. Although a room makeover is a great excuse to clean out clutter why not use their most treasured items like books, toys or trinkets as part of the room decor? Organize books by color, install a shelf to display a trophy or frame a favorite hand made piece of art.
4. Don’t be afraid to ask for help! Use resources like Pinterest and in-store services like PBK’s Free Interior Design Service to help plan the space before you commit.
5. Everything in the room doesn’t have to match. Try using the same bed but mix it up with different bedding for an individual yet pulled together look.
