10 Ways to Define a Shared Space

My sister and I shared a room growing up, and there were times that it was great and there were times that it, well, wasn't. It was during those times that we dreamed of building a brick wall right down the middle of the space.

Luckily for all of you parents out their whose little ones share a room, there are better ways to define a kid's space. Here are ten of them:

1. Pattern

2. Bedding

Domino Magazine

3. Art

4. Furniture

5. Architecture

6. To each his (or her) own

7. Initals

8. Color Block

Did you share a space as a kid? How did it work out?


  1. Sure, I shared a space with my Sister. We had an imaginary line right down the middle. Her side was always picked up but was 1 inch thick with dust. Mine was dust free, but a mess. If only we would have worked together.
    Is it a bad thing to share a space? I would say looking back....absolutely not. We are very close to each other and I can't help but believe that sharing that space had something to do with it.
    Now for my plug since I don't have a blog: 11/2/11
    P.s. If you live in York, check out dear Abby in the morning paper today. What a poor poor child that was who wrote to Abby.
    Abby, your response was right on! I'd like to kick that kids butt!


  2. Great round up! Yes, I shared my bedroom with my little sister, and it was miserable, mostly because we had a double bed and my parents refused to buy two twin beds. Therefore, when my 6-years-younger sister was peeing in the bed at night, I was in middle school and would wake up in the morning covered in her pee. As a 12 year old, this was obviously not cool for me. So, I'll never make my kids share a bed, even if they were to wind up sharing a room.
