Almost every child knows how they want to personalize their room by the time they become teenagers. (I remember my own strong feelings on the subject as a teenager!) But in the earlier years, even if a room is shared, your child will gain a sense of pride in the room if it has personal touches that reflect the child’s own choices as much as possible.

Here are a few things you can do to personalize your child’s room or shared room:

  1. Give your child some leeway in choosing colors, furniture and accessories for the room but—take my word for it here—limit the options. Too many choices make the decision difficult for everyone. So, for example, if your child wants a blue ceiling, limit the choice to three shades of blue that you can live with.

  2. Research has shown that children begin showing a preference for color as early as 12 weeks and prefer “cool” colors (like pink, blue and green) over “warm” colors (like red); however, their preferences change rapidly so paint is often a better choice than paper for walls. In a shared room, incorporate the color choices of both children.

  3. For the same reasons above, area carpets are a good choice for covering any floor surface. Today’s beloved cartoon-themed rug soon becomes a “baby” rug.

  4. Consider a wall border or a mural that incorporates the child’s name and/or favorite sport, toys, animals, or other interest. Wall murals provide a focal point for any room. In a shared children’s room, different murals can be featured on each side or one mural can combine the interests of both children.

  5. Build attractive storage closets and shelves to hide inexpensive bins for toys, shoes and sports equipment. Storage can be fit into awkward alcoves or the empty places over doors, under the eaves or under furniture (for example, in a window seat).

  6. If a shared room is causing fights over privacy, consider a room divider. Not only does it provide privacy, but it can be built to incorporate a dresser, book shelf or other storage, so that it doesn’t shrink the overall space. Make sure the divider is anchored well.

  7. Wall art is a great place to let children express themselves. Consider framing your child’s own drawings or photo. Or give your child options in picking out pictures. Uniform frames will show that the choices are deliberate rather than random.

  8. A custom-built bed or custom built bunk beds can give years of joy and solve the problem of finding more space in a small room. A single bed can be built high off the ground to allow a desk underneath. Bunk beds can act as room dividers. Either single or bunk beds can be built to a theme, whether race car or castle or space module. When you personalize your child’s room, you’ll be rewarded with a wide-eyed gasp of pleasure when your child sees the results. Through color, floor covering, murals, storage, dividers, wall art or custom furniture for the room, you can help your child express and develop both individuality and taste.
