Fun, functional and space-saving, the bunk bed long been a favourite when it comes to designing kids rooms for siblings. However, balancing the preferences of both your children can be tricky, especially if you have a boy and a girl. Thankfully, gender-neutral themes in furniture and home decor are fast gaining popularity.
Going for a gender neutral bunk bed is equally relevant if you’re planning for a shared space between a boy and girl or even if you simply want to avoid stereotypical choices for your kids. Gender neutral bunk beds typically have features that balance both the spirit of both the sexes. This can be in terms of color and structure. To step away from stereotypical color schemes, you can opt for bunk beds with gender neutral palettes like grey and aqua, coral and aqua, and navy and mint green.
