In fact, it's probably the easiest challenge to overcome when planning a shared room. Your first step is to select an underlying color palette for the main elements of the room (walls, rug, furniture) that is gender neutral…and, if they're old enough to chime in, that each sibling gives the thumbs up. Color combos such as white and grey, turquoise and white or a mix of primary colors work well for both boys and girls.

If a monochromatic look seems a little too intense for your home, there's an easy way to brighten up the space while adding more visual interest: Just add natural materials such as wood, stone or metal.
