It is not uncommon these days for children to share a bedroom at home.  This can be fun for siblings to feel like they are having sleepovers every night.  Over on the Real Estate blog I came across some expert tips on how to style a shared kids room by Naomi Findlay from the Institute of Home staging and styling.

Here are Naomi’s top tips for your children to harmoniously share a bedroom (well for a short time anyway).

1. Use Gender Neutral Colours, for example, green, yellow, white or red.  Then each child can choose an accent colour in their style and liking.

2. Choose space savers, like bunk beds, built in’s.  Storage is important as well.  Book shelves, shelving and bedside tables are things to think about.

3. Consider desk space.  If space permits, each child would value their own desk space.
