Kids Shared Bedroom Ideas

Designing a bedroom for more than one? It's possible to create a bedroom that gives each kid the space they need with the style you want. Follow our simple kids shared bedroom ideas to create the ultimate space for your little ones to comfortably coexist in.

Give each kid a space of their own.

Two boys share a bunk bed in their bedroom.

Personalize the space around each kid’s bed with anything from their favorite color to their particular interest. And make sure each kid has their own shelf or storage area that they can display their own toys or collection on.

Furniture and bedding don't need to match.

You don’t need matching furniture to coordinate a kids shared bedroom. Using the same beds with different bedding (or vice versa) can tie the room together. Different throw pillows can even coordinate, while allowing each one to stand out.

Make sure the room is functional.

Choose furniture based on each kid’s needs, then base the rest of the room off of it. An older kid might need a desk or reading lamp, whereas a younger child may need a softer rug as they learn to crawl, or even a rocking chair. In a boys shared bedroom, try adding toy storage at varying heights for different children to store their personal belongings at their own level.

Use items that can grow with kids.

A shared bedroom will need to work through a bunch of different stages of growth, and you don’t want to completely rearrange the room for each one. Play tables with convertible legs offer a great craft area in a girls shared bedroom. Dressers with removable changing tops offer another great way to transition furniture as your children grow.
