Sharing a space with siblings can be a crazy fun experience or chaotic and stressful. My sister and I shared a room for most of our youth and there were plenty of times I remember dividing the space with masking tape on the carpet. Creating a room that is attractive, functional, and gives each child their own area can be a challenge. Right now I’m trying to figure out my boys’ room and how to utilized the space well. Bunk beds are not my favorite, but I pulled together some beautiful shared spaces and amazing bunk beds that may just change my opinion!
The coastal room above is a favorite of mine. Covering the walls with maps is always a fun idea that will also help your kids learn their geography.
The weathered gray wood paneled walls and stainless steel curtain rods on the bunk beds below would be perfect for a coastal cottage bedroom.
A trundle on casters tucks nicely under these fun rope beds and are ready to roll out for sleepovers.
Our last home was a Cape Cod and the attic space was converted into bedrooms. The dormers and slanted roofline always made furniture arranging challenging but wow, look at this brilliant idea pictured below! This arrangement not only gives each child their own space in the alcove but it maximizes storage space too!
