4 basic principles of furniture arrangement in a children’s room for two children

When designing a nursery for two children, the most important thing to remember is that young children are independent individuals. They want to have their own things that will only belong to them. Therefore, it will be just great if you still manage to arrange two separate sleeping and working places in one room..

How to arrange furniture in the nursery

Let’s look at ways of arranging furniture and zoning space in a nursery for two children with a slight age difference.

1. Two beds side by side

 Two girls’ room:

Two girls can perfectly get along in a room with textile draperies, ruffles and decorations. Most likely, in this sense, their interests will coincide. Place their favorite books, toys, or simply girly decorations between the beds..

Two boys’ room:

For two boys, the setting should be more discreet. Beds can be decorated in the same way, and a neutral table lamp and alarm clock can be placed on the bedside table or chest of drawers.

Boy and girl room:

If both a girl and a boy live in the same nursery, try maximizing the space between their beds. Children are likely to have different interests and ideas about what should be on and inside the bedside table. Therefore, it is better to either divide the property and provide each child with a curbstone, or give it to one of the children for use, and the second, say, to allocate more space in the closet.

2. Bunk bed

One of the most economical in terms of space use is a bunk bed. It is ergonomic and can look very cozy with the right textiles. Give your children the freedom to choose who sleeps and where. If this issue cannot be agreed peacefully, you can simply agree with the children that they will change places once every six months, for example.

Room for children of the same sex:

In a situation with children of the same sex, it is more logical to place an older child on the upper tier. If the difference is very small, first of all ask for the opinion of the children – perhaps they will decide among themselves who and where will sleep.

If such a dilemma arises between a boy and a girl, it would be more correct to explain to the future man that he should give up a more comfortable bed to the girl.

3. Workplace and bed in two floors

If space allows you, you can equip a separate bed and a table for one child, and provide a transformer table / bed for the second. Such designs are unusual and to the liking of many children. In addition, their sleeping and working place are in close proximity to each other. Depending on the temperament of the children, you can make a choice – put one such bed or two in the room. Try to ask the children how they feel comfortable..

In a situation with children of the same sex and, if possible, vary the layout, let the children make a choice – do they want to sleep on the second tier.

Boy and girl room:

If the family has both a boy and a girl, it is preferable for the boy to sleep on the second floor. He is more resilient, physically developed and has a lot of energy, part of which he will spend on getting up / down from his berth.

4. Symmetry and equality

When there is one child in a family, all attention is focused on him. When there are two children, they willy-nilly begin to compare themselves with each other and compete. This is where your role as parents is very important. In the design and construction of the room, try to balance as much as possible «possession» each of the children.

Decorate beds with similar textiles – if not by color, then by texture and sewing method. Arrange identical book racks symmetrically, buy chairs from the same manufacturer, and the like. In a word – leave as little space as possible for thinking about who is better. Let things be very similar, even the same, but different colors. This is important for a supportive atmosphere between children..

Two girls’ room:

If there are two girls in the family, pay attention to textiles and decor. Because they will also turn him to this. Take care of the equal number of pillows on the bed, the same quality of bed linen and bedspreads, and the like. Also, girls are worried about the storage space in the closet – it must necessarily be divided strictly equally.

Two boys’ room:

Boys pay more attention to constructiveness – the shape of the bed, the color, the number of pedestals and the size of the workplace.

Boy and girl room:

When both a boy and a girl live in the same room, everything is much simpler in terms of equality and symmetry. Everyone has their own needs, and they rarely overlap. The main thing here that is required from parents is to distribute storage space and coverage areas – for example, a table by the window, a piano and a rack – for a girl, a table and a sofa next to it – for a boy. This way children will understand the boundaries of their territory and will not quarrel about it..
