Do your kids share a room? We’ve been wusses about putting Toby and Anton into the same room, but they’ve recently gotten really into having “sleepovers.” We’re planning to officially move them in together soon, and they’re really excited. For inspiration, here are 12 shared kids rooms (the bunkbeds, above, are for four siblings!)…
Linsey‘s three children — 7, 5 and 2 — share a room. “In the morning, Ivy, the oldest, is usually the first one up. She figured out a system to keep things quiet: She dangles a ribbon down from the top bunk, and if someone grabs it or starts giggling, she knows they’re awake and it’s safe to come down.”
Courtney‘s sweet boys share a double bed, which is such a lovely idea!
The contrasting wallpaper is definitely cooler than drawing a chalk line down the middle.
Bonnie peeled up old carpet and painted this striped floor herself. (!)
What a calming, classic room in England.
A brother and sister share this room in Montreal. (How sweet to sleep foot-to-foot!)
Yen, a mother of a son and daughter, says: “The kids will share a bedroom until [now-six-year-old] An-Linh wants to sleep alone in the other bedroom. She tried it for one night, but then made Liem sleep with her and never went back. Their whole routine is together — they brush their teeth together and then they read a story. They’re still babies together.”
Simple and lovely. How cool is that map?
The little sleeping nook is adorable!
Cami and her husband made this long bed for their daughters.
And, last but not least, Jordan‘s sons share a bunkbed in their San Francisco apartment.
Aren’t these awesome? Do your little ones share a room? Have you ever shared one?
