2 teenagers sharing a bedroom

Sharing a bedroom is a bit trickier and a lot of tolerance of both children at a young age, I know from my childhood experience sharing a bedroom well into my latter teens.

  • Parents require to consult they’re child what they wish and come up with a well thought out plan to best use the bedroom space for 2 people over the years. Good idea to have teenagers sharing a bedroom with queen size beds in a room of at lest 16’ x 15’ = 240 sq feet or if you have the space 18’ x 18’ = 324 sq feet which are larger areas to accommodate all furniture and items required.  

Two separate double or queen size beds help portray teenage girls or boy’s growing up and project maturity.

Bigger room size of 18’ x 18’ will accommodate 2 teenager’s sharing requirements for bedroom furniture and storage and will provide good size for a child’s bedroom and floor space.

Plenty space to move around safely with 2 beds and tables, 2 seats & study tables, extra wardrobe, and two chests of drawers.

With 2 girls decide if you need 2 dressers with mirror or they share to cut down on space usage. TV & music system could be built into the wall or other place.

Both boy’s and girls will have they’re own interests, collections also have enough room space for storage utilizing wall space, including room height, even secure things such as toy planes to the walls.

Think about space for an inflatable mattress or sleeping bags for sleepovers and extra seating for some of you’re children’s friends coming round to visit for a few hours.

How children live in and use the bedroom

Bedrooms for teenagers are used defiantly by all children and each stage of there young lives.

Does you’re son or daughter attend a lot of sport and activity clubs? If yes a good possibility the bedroom is used for relaxing and sleep.

Children attending boarding school term time will obviously only use a bedroom at home on holidays and summer. Flexible boarding children are away 4 or 5 night’s a week and hence use they’re bedroom at home at weekends and holidays.

With children at boarding school or university they also split time and activities between the university, school and home.

With my house I plan on being prepared for children using there bedroom less often for sleep, study and hobbies and split time between the family home and university.

Space for hobbies such as model aircraft making for boy’s take up space and require a dedicated area for plane construction over a few days.

Asking about a good size bedroom for 13-19 year old teens means you’ll think about what size bed should a teenager have? A bed takes a lot of space in a bedroom and it’s important to get the right length x width for a boy or girl to sleep comfortably.

At 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 years old a double bed helps when children are growing fast and should be big enough for growth spurts that can be 6 feet 5 inches by 18-19 years old.

Choosing the right size of bed that fit in a bedroom with all furniture with sufficient space and provides a comfortable sleeping experience for a teen is important.

How children live in and use a bedroom

Bedrooms for teenagers are used defiantly by all children and each stage of there young lives.

Does you’re son or daughter attend a lot of sport and activity clubs? If yes a good possibility the bedroom is used for relaxing and sleep only.

Children attending boarding school term time will obviously only use a bedroom at home on holidays and summer. Flexible boarding children are away 4 or 5 night’s a week and hence use they’re bedroom at home at weekends and holidays.

With children at boarding school or university they also split time and activities between the university, school and home and don’t require a big bedroom at home.

With my house I plan on being prepared for children using there bedroom less often for sleep, study and hobbies and split time between the family home and university.

Space for hobbies such as model aircraft making for boy’s take up space and require a dedicated area for plane construction over a few days.

Study and hobbies bedroom space

Vast majority of teen children have a hobby or interest including electric guitar, electric toy cars or collectables that might be in a single or shared bedroom.

Defiantly think about appropriate chairs & study desk space in a teenager’s bedroom so they’ll have a quit place to complete school homework or university assignments. This is important for you’re son or daughter so they are alone and not disturbed or distracted much when the school work gets progressively more difficult as they get older & for examination time of the year.

Bedroom seating area to relax and chat with friends

Depending on the style of furniture a teen’s bedroom could have a seating area that’s well defined in the bedroom where they could be relaxing or entertain 3 – 12 friends over for a few hours.

I had a double sofa bed that was useful for not only sitting and stretching out on but for visitors for a night or sometimes a week sleepover, better than a sleeping bag or mat on the floor.

Extra seating is also useful when you’re son or daughter invites friends that could be built into bay windows to save space, end of a bed or other area, although a good sized bedroom could hold 2-3 armchairs with a sofa.
