1. Location: New DelhiFirm: Group DCAThis bedroom puts paid to any arguments regarding colour and themes by going neutral, particularly for expansive surfaces such as the beds, walls and floor. The fun element is brought in via brightly coloured cushions, some quirky wall accessories and the multicoloured rugFind a designer to help you make the perfect kids’ room
Issue: They have very different and distinct tastes when it comes to colour and themesSolution: The easiest way to solve this is to choose a neutral colour and material palette for expansive surfaces such as wardrobes, beds, walls and floors. Bring in fun elements with furnishings and curios. A neutral palette is also a perfect canvas for a shared bedroom for a brother and sister and for their growing tastes and needs. When picking a theme, consider broad, timeless accents like geometric shapes or ‘grown-up’ florals which can work well into their teenage years.
A neutral palette works for small spacesWhile it’s ideal to give each child their own bed and an area that they can personalise, in the case of smaller rooms it can be challenging. This is why you can take a standard decor route – a bunk or twin bed, solid-colour walls, identical bed linen and possibly a multi-hued rug, like in this room, to throw in some colour.Not sure what additions to make for your daughter?

Choose separate bedsIf a shared bed is leading to constant arguments and fights for space, then consider going in for twin beds – or bunk beds, if your children are still in the age group of three to ten years. See how Group DCA has created a soft-toned, wooden bunk bed that complements the room’s design. The spacious beds give enough room for each sibling to stretch out and sleep peacefully.Check out these fun bunk beds your kids will love
1. Blending traditional and modern decor, the designers have used wooden furniture with colourful fabrics and a patchwork rug in the kids’ room. The clever use of neutral colours (grey and white) on the walls and ceiling gives the room lasting appeal. The desk unit efficiently fits close to the wall to allow space in the middle to play. A mix of open shelves, closed cabinets and under-bench drawers offer plenty of storage solutions for their growing needs.Small additions, such as the wall clock and the offbeat light fixture, bring a bit of quirky funk to the space, which will not be outgrown in a couple of years.Browse through more pictures of this house
“The homeowners love what we did with the pantry and the children’s room,” Aurora says. Here, the snug bunk bed and study table, both constructed of wood, are juxtaposed with the brightly coloured rug and cushions. An unusual lighting piece suspended above adds to the vibrancy.

Go for neutral colours Do not follow the whole blue-is-for-boys and pink-is-for-girls thing. Keep the wall colours neutral; this way you save yourself the huge task of repainting walls later. “I would recommend keeping elements such as the flooring and wall colour as neutral as possible and play around with the soft furnishings in the room,” says Rohit Kapoor, Creative Head of Nivasa.
6. Bunk bed A bunk bed provides sleeping space for two people (mostly children) but uses the horizontal floor space of only one bed. Attached with steps or a ladder, getting into bed is an everyday adventure. Kids love them, secretly I think adults do too. Zany Bunk Beds Your Kids Will Love
