Jumpstart Your Day: 4 Ideas for a Shared Bedroom
Create a cozy and vibrant space for your little ones
Given the space limitations at home, we often allot one room for the kids. If you have two kids or more, you can have a space that caters to the things that each one loves—while giving priority to comfort, storage, and function.
Here are four handy ideas to help you plan a room that can address these important concerns.
Depending on the favorite colors of your kids, you can designate each 0ne's part of the room by using color-coordinate pieces. Ask them for their favorite color and use it as accents in the room. In this bedroom, blue and pink were utilized to identify the boy's bed from the girl's.
RL Tip: Always consider storage! If the room is small, you may opt to have an elevated bed so you can keep storage bins and baskets under it. Remember to properly label each bin.

A no-fail space-saving trick, you may also hang curtains between the beds to give your kids some privacy. Using curtains to separate the spaces is ideal for small spaces as it's easy to install. You may even add a shelf or a console table.
RL Tip: Feel free to add accents! Consider adding wall decor and origami cranes, to name a few.

You may place the beds parallel to each other then create a shared play area in the middle. This area can serve as a special part of the house where the kids can play and read books together. Add a couple of bean bags, a playmat, and a freestanding shelf where they can keep the books and toys.

If your space cannot accommodate huge beds, you may work with two daybeds placed against two opposite walls. To add some privacy, you may add curtains as well.
RL Tip: Think about function! If your kids are in big school, you can place the study area between the two daybeds. Aside from adding a table and a small cabinet, you may also install wall-mounted open shelves. You may use the shelves to put books and photos on display.
