My son and daughter sharing a room... help? ...EDIT... EDIT 2

Posted by   + Show Post

 

 

Anyone have a boy and girl sharing a room?

We plan on buying or building a new house closer to home within the next 6-12 months. When that time comes, all 3 kids will have their own rooms again.

In the meantime, I am going to take over one of their bedrooms and turn it into a work out room. Our gym equipment is currently spread put throughout the house (bench, weights, elliptical, etc.).

One thing is for sure: we are getting them bunk beds! Our daughter is 7 and our son is 5. They are attached at the hip and get along fabulously. So this will be a welcomed transition.

My problem.. I want to make the bedroom comfortable and fun. I want them BOTH to love it and feel like it's "their room". What are some things I can to do make it boyish and girly?

Looking for some cute ideas for storage, personal space, etc.

Thanks :)

 

Just to answer a few questions:

I live in Canada. We don`t have CPS. We have CAS and it`s not illegal for boys and girls to share a bedroom.

Also, our kids aren`t being forced to share a room. They WANT to. They have been bugging us for bunk beds for ages. So, putting them together in a room is only spoiling them. LOL

 

And HERE is what I think we might build (or buy)! We are thinking it would be better to build something we can take with us.

 let them pick their own bedsets? my ds (5) has bunkbeds with mario on them. once my dd (5 months) gets ready for a bed we'll get her something girly. with our current living situation not sure if they'll be sharing a room by that time or not. my son also has posters of his favorite characters all over his walls too. if they do end up sharing a room i'm sure we'll end up decorating half the room his way and half hers.

check out pinterest. my 8 and 1 year old share a room and the big thing is storage. I have tons of bins for each and that helps. I would use lots of colors that are bright and bold like green, blue, red and yellow. I love bright colors for kids rooms.

Selfish,  when gym equipment is more important than kids having their own space!
