Tip! Educators and designers do not recommend using excessively bright, energetic, acidic colours when decorating children’s rooms. Active children need a calm environment where they can relax and do things.

Renovating a nursery for two children

If two kids live in one room, the search for design ideas becomes a little more complicated. This much depends on the size of the room. In a cramped space, children will have to share one sleeping place (bunk beds will help), a dining table, a place to play and study. A more spacious room can be divided into zones according to the preferences of each of the children. This is done with the help of favourite cartoon characters, modes of transport, and different colours of the wallpaper.

Renovating the nursery for two assumes:

  • A light colour scheme (visually increases the room);
  • Purchase of compact furniture that will save space (folding table, sofa, or armchair-transformer);
  • The use of decorative elements made by the hands of small family members.

This is interesting! Similar principles are appropriate when making renovating in a small children’s bedroom. White colour and folding furniture visually increase the space, freeing up invaluable square meters for useful activities and games.
