5. When the needs are particular: shared bedrooms

In the event that the environment must be shared by several brothers, perhaps of different sexes or ages, the designer will be faced with a more difficult task: to find the right solution considering the differences and make them a plus value. In fact, even if more complicated, the organization of the interior space in this case must be a challenge that overcomes the apparent constraints.

In case the children are a boy and a girl, there are different characters to be analyzed, first of all the choice of the colors of the walls. Neutral shades of beige, white and gray are to be preferred, which can then be combined with the more lively colors of the complements of one or the other. If, on the other hand, you love warmer and brighter tones, opt for yellow and orange, unisex, they will be perfect for both. From the furnishing point of view, however, the one with clean lines is perfect, devoid of references to the world of fairy tales or with bizarre shapes.

And if it comes to space-saving furniture, even better! In shared rooms, they allow you to gain centimeters so that children can play more comfortably, ensure greater order and are multifunctional. As for the actual layout of the room, it is important to delimit the spaces, in order to avoid the typical quarrels between brothers. A useful and also nice method is to hang or place the initials of their names on shelves or cupboards: effective and practical they will make the little ones feel important. In this case, the most appropriate wall decorations are those that refer to geometric shapes, since they are suitable for both and recur in contemporary design.

This is because in addition to tastes, the different needs corresponding to the different stages of growth must be evaluated.

The toys suitable for one will be dangerous or outdated for the other, the ergonomic arrangement of objects and furniture will always be perfect in alternating phases and yet the decorations will not stimulate the imagination of both. Furthermore, the more marked the age difference, the greater the organizational difficulty. However, even if it may seem an insurmountable problem, there is a remedy for everything!

Some simple precautions will allow a harmonious and peaceful sharing of space. For example, in order to ensure greater safety, it is recommended to position the toy containers at a height that cannot be reached by the smallest one who could ingest dangerous parts.

The furniture must be distributed correctly, to allow older children to play and walk and smaller ones to rest. They are also perfect carpets and soft cushions: they keep the environment clean making it comfortable even for those taking their first steps.When you are faced with problems dictated by contingency, it is therefore useful to consider some important factors and get advice from a professional in the sector. to be able to choose in a conscious and reasoned way the elements that will make up the children's space.

6. How to keep order? Some practical tips

One of the greatest difficulties that can be encountered in spaces intended for children is order, but to overcome the problem of misplaced toys, books on the floor and unfolded blankets, there are very useful practical solutions. To start with the walls that can be used as much as the furnishings, an interesting novelty is characterized by the padded panels that, once fixed to the wall, can be used to affix objects, posters and photographs.

Then there are the equipped walls, obtained thanks to modules that side by side in various ways, are ready to house toys, books and lamps. To help keep order more easily, classic coat hangers and shelves are also widely used which, in addition to ensuring the convenience of quickly choosing and wearing clothes and accessories, can be used to move bare walls.

As for the storage of toys, you can choose from a wide range of baskets and boxes with varied shapes and colors.

An excellent idea is to arrange objects and games according to the "bottom-up" scheme, placing the most used ones at child height and the least used ones in a higher position. In this way, the parent knows where everything is and the child is comfortable choosing what he wants at that precise moment. In the event that you have a small space, the drawers placed under the bed will be perfect, able to accommodate many games that will be within reach if necessary thanks to the comfortable wheels placed in the lower part. Wall organizers, bags with transparent boxes to identify the contents and toy-boxes are also well received.  

Finally, the attitude that the parent has towards their children regarding order is of fundamental importance: if you get used to involving them from an early age in the organization of spaces, the children will feel responsible and will collaborate with pleasure, giving a big concrete contribution.
