Decorating your child's room can be a time of bonding no matter the child's age. If by chance your son and daughter share a room it could decorate e each half with colors that compliment the other without actually being the same it gives the illusion that each has their own space. Kid's décor can be what you choose it to be there is no hard and fast rule as to what you can or can not do.
Another easy way to let your kids express themselves in their room is magnetic boards or magnetic wall paint. You can even add this element to your chalkboard paint. You can use a magnetic paint in mixed form with the primer, or mix a magnetic additive powder to regular paint. About three even coats of the paint are suggested, and adding more will increase the magnetism. If you use the magnetic primer mix, after it is dry you can cover the wall with a non-magnetic paint color of your choice. This magnetic paint is also a great way for your kid to decorate their walls without having to stick nails and pins in the walls.
A fun design element you can add in your child's room is chalkboard wall paint. Paint a closet door, an entire wall, or simply hang a framed chalkboard to let your child's creativity shine. If you're worried that the black chalkboard paint will clash with your current room decor, there are plenty of other colored chalkboard paints that will go with your color scheme including blue, green, purple, pink and more. It's an easy application that will give your kids endless fun drawing on their walls.
For older children and teens, you may want to consider a little different of a kids decor choice but still a favorite that requires splitting the room with tall shelves, and building a desk or table on each side of the shelves for added stability. Two desk armoires, placed back to back, with shelves on either side, will accomplish the same effect. If there is a window on only one side of the room, provide extra lighting for the opposite side of the room. Have each child choose wall art that expresses their interests and makes their space even more special.
Another option is to affix a large sketch pad to a wall and keep assorted paints and colored pencils nearby for easy access. Kids love to hangs their stuff and want everything to be easily accessible.
