 Design a child's room for two children

Of course, ideally, each child in the family should have its own separate room. However, the reality of life is far from ideal. And if parents can allocate an entire room for children (even one for two), then it is great! Anyway, for the children themselves. They certainly easily or gladly adopt the perspective of the neighborhood. And the main task of the parents would be in this case, the optimal design of a child's room for two kids, good zoning areas and the selection of suitable furniture. Let's look at the possible options for children's space in which to live just two uterine relatives.

Individual zoning

This is a compromise. Since it will allow children as much as possible to feel their individuality and importance. In the case of an individual zoning of each child will have their own bed, your desktop and your own wardrobe. Option individual zoning - a kind of duplex: two identical "rooms" in a nursery. Particularly pertinent to this option when there is palpable among children age difference, or is heterosexual children.

Individual zoning child's room is possible even in a small room, if skillfully used not only its horizontal, but vertical space. Podiums of different heights and destination, as well as withdrawable team or furniture will certainly help in the implementation of such a plan. If desired, children and the possibility of placing such zone can be arranged symmetrically along one of the walls or in mirror image in the two parts of the room. Individual zones also may be separated by partitions functional or symbolic.

At the equipment of personal zones beds for each child usually installed along parallel or adjacent walls. If you have a bed near a wall, they shared a makeshift partition: shelves, chests of drawers. To isolate the bed above the beds can also be installed canopies. The workplace and storage space for individual zoning every child should also be their own.

Functional zoning

Child's room for two children in this case is divided into a recreation area and a work area. In this embodiment, design children's beds combined, having a bed nearby, using the bunk beds or bed-transformers.

Two beds are usually installed in parallel (backs against the wall), or by shifting them at a right angle to each other. If the room does not allow a child's room to squeeze in her two beds, parents acquire a bunk bed or bunk furniture unit. As a rule, parents are quite satisfied with similar spatial resolution. But psychologists say that a two-story bed emphasizes the inequality between children. However, if between them a sufficiently large difference in age, it will not injure the underline none, either. Because the hierarchy of relations in this tandem is already established.

For the combined workplace is best to buy one large table with two side tables or shelves. Two separate table near (parallel or at an angle vis) - is also a good solution. In any case, it gives the opportunity to change the interior, making the transposition (as children are so fickle and so fond of change!). Storage spaces and clothing in case of functional zoning should still be personal. Even if the wardrobe is common in children, they need their own tables, chest of drawers or shelves.

Children's Furniture

If we parents decided to equip a children's room for two, then on their part it would be a crime to neglect transformed modern furniture. Its benefits are so evident that it is worth spending it on such furniture. Judge for yourself, furniture-transformer will:

save space in the room (folding table top, draw-out beds, folding chairs);
solve the problem of inequality of age (for a student worktop and roll out from under her table for preschoolers);
combine the two beds in one piece of furniture (sofa bed with a second roll-out bed);
bring children to enjoy the use of just such furniture.
Very comfortable here and furniture units. This whole system of the beds, furniture, shelving and cabinets, which make it possible to save as much as possible in the room.

The two-storey block of furniture more successful and better option than the classical bunk bed. In such blocks top box is not on the lower bunk, and, for example, above the working area. Also, the furniture-transformer can combine the cabinet with folding bed or a table top.
