Sharing a bedroom needn’t mean sharing a scheme.

You can still give your kids their own individual bedroom styles and a space for them to call their own – even with a bunk bed. The simplest way to achieve this is by painting a two-tone wall and visually separating the bottom bunk from the top.

Starting with the main piece, John Lewis Wilton Bunk Bed (£299), here are two schemes to bring their spaces to life.

Bottom bunk - Into the woods

For a happy camper dreaming of their next adventure create a woodland themed bottom bunk. Start by painting the bottom half of the wall with a nature inspired shade of green like Putting Green.

Once the walls are painted, there’s so much more to display to give your little adventurer their own space. Hang a branch-like shelf from Mothercare (£29.99) above their bed to give them easy-to-reach space to keep books and their own bedside lamp such as Argos’ campfire-ready LED lantern (£10). Take the woodland feel even further with a bear-shaped chalkboard from Sass & Belle (£6) ready for bedside doodling.

Add soft textures for snuggling in such as H&M’s fox cushion (£7.99) and the leaf adorned Jonill bedding from Ikea (£30).

Top bunk - Storybook escape

For a bookworm who’s more at home with literary adventures than outdoor ones, try a storybook themed scheme. A swish of dreamy Blue Babe on the top half of the wall is a good start to bring their fantasy world to life.

Keep their heads in the clouds with cloud print bedspread, Zara, (£25.99), and John Lewis’ star-studded storage basket (£14) to hang from bed. Make sure to scatter lots of snuggly cushions like these cloud-shaped ones from Ikea (£6) for the real hideaway look.

Finally, for a finishing touch, add some more lovely touches to get their imaginations going with a shelf in the shape of a house from H&M (£14.99).
