Decorating Ideas For Unisex Kids Bedroom
Decorating your kids bedroom and play areas can be a lot of fun, especially when you let the kids help out. Many parents consider it ideal for boys and girls to have their own separate bedrooms, but not every family has that luxury. Fortunately, there are several ways to create unisex kids bedroom. Choose a gender-neutral shade for walls. Skip anything pink, red, or purple. The more neutral the shade, the more freedom you can give your children to choose colors for their accessories. Choose the same style of comforter for each child’s bed, but let them pick their favorite colors. This way, the room has a cohesive look and the children get to have a choice in the decor. Consider room dividers if the room is large enough to accommodate them. Room dividers come in many sizes, materials, and levels of permanence. Screen panel dividers typically have 3 to 5 panels made from rice paper, wood, bamboo, or fabric.
A curtain is an easy and lightweight alternative to a heavy room divider. Attach a heavy wire close to the ceiling, stretching from one end of the kids bedroom to the other. The curtain can be closed for privacy and opened when children want to play together. Keep thematic elements simple. Do not over emphasize one child’s hobby. If your son is a star baseball player, display his trophies in the family room. If your daughter is a star ballerina, hang her favorite poster of ballet dancers in the playroom instead. Opt for smaller, neutral accessories. Pictures of friends and family or accessories that highlight a common interest, such as tennis or drama classes, are a good place to start.
