How to decorate a Shared Room

Monday, May 26, 2008

Sharing a room with a family member makes it difficult for you to decorate it the way that you would like. Say you like Peach, but your roomie likes blue. What do you do then?

Divide up a schedule of when you get your time in your room and when your roomie gets time. During this agreed upon time you can do whatever you want to, such asdress or even talk on the telephone.

  • Decorate by using some of your favorite colors, and some of your roomie. If you have two beds, then you get a bedspread of your choice of color and allow the roomie to buy one of another color, the one that they like.
  • Make a deal on what decorations to get and the room will be yours as well as your roomie's. Compromise and enjoy sharing a room together.
  • Consider dividing the room into 2 sides. This does not mean that you are restricted to your side, it just creates a sense of personal space. Perhaps put a bookshelf in between your beds.Or hang a curtain.
  • You could also each have a corner of the room and share the rest.
  • A bunk bed can save space.
  • Each person should have their own space ie dresser, bed, bookshelf, lamp etc. if possible.
    • Look in decorating booksRemember that sharing a room with a family member can be a great thing. You can talk and share secrets and laugh at fun things.

    • Everything doesn't have to match
