Shared Bedrooms For Kids

My daughter Coco is almost 1 and a half and the transition to her own room is long overdue. Our house has three bedrooms, one of which we’d like to save for our guests – especially the grandparents, who travel to visit us frequently. So we’re toying with the idea of having Coco share a bedroom with her 4 year old brother, at least for a couple of years until we come across a more preferred choice for the both of them. I’ve always loved gender-neutral children’s bedrooms and am inspired by these super fun and charming examples. Now, the only question stands: twins or bunk?

    I personally love twin beds! It seems so dreamy to have your siblings sharing the same perspective and environment! If space is an issue, than of course bunk beds are also a nice solution.

    Exciting move! The twin beds look dreamy in photos, but as a summer camp girl… bunk beds all the way! It actually gives each of them a bit of vertical privacy, but also invites sharing and some giggles after dark. Vibe is less army barracks, more sleepover, imo. Whichever you choose, can’t wait to see how it turns out and I’m sure you will create bonding moments between them that will last a lifetime. Great idea!

    Get bunks that can be separated into twins – then you have both options. My boys are in bunks right now & it gives them more floor space to play, but I’m thinking of splitting them up when we move.
