Laughing…crying…playing…fighting. A shared sibling bedroom is a beehive of activity and needs. And that means there`s a lot for parents to tackle when creating their kids' shared bedroom. With twice the amount (or more) of evolving personalities and necessities, it`s often a daunting task for parents to accommodate storage, space and the individual style of each child. Designing a room for a brother and a sister doesn`t have to be challenging. In fact, it`s probably the easiest challenge to overcome when planning a shared room. To complement your underlying palette, layer complementary colors and patterns on top of that. For example in a grey and white room, try accenting with yellow accessories.
When it comes to using wood, there are so many variations to try. To create a sleeker, contemporary headboard look, sand and slightly whitewash the wood slats so they don’t feel rough, look dirty or too rustic in appearance. For extra design appeal, try offsetting your headboard for an asymmetric effect like the image below. Take furniture and home accents and give them new life as a headboard. Some furniture-as-headboard ideas include: If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If your dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper.
A wall mural or painting can be a great headboard. If you're wanting a softer more padded effect, paint or print your art on a large canvas, mount it to a frame and pad the backside for a custom, upholstered art headboard. Use a collection of smaller art store canvases to create an artsy gallery headboard wall. Paint them in a semi or high-gloss, bold color for a contemporary look, like the bedroom shown below. You could also used recycled cardboard boxes if pre-stretched canvases are expensive. Paint the sides in a contrasting color to add dimension.
