Wether you are short on space or your kids just love being in the same room, shared kids spaces are a really popular choice! Not only does it solve design challenges, it can be such a fun and creative environment for your kids.
Matching twin beds are a great place to start in a shared space. While matching beds aren’t totally necessary, it can really help give the room some symmetry and a cohesive palette. Always allow for a minimum of 3 feet between the beds. If you have enough space, it helps to have each bed pulled about a foot away from the wall. This really comes in handy when making the bed!
Sticking with symmetrical bedding also helps to keep things cohesive. If you want to mix it up a little to let each kids’ personality shine, try varying the artwork on each side, but try to keep it in the same general color palette. Anything too drastically different will leave the room feeling a little disjointed.
If you have the space, opt for a chest of drawers between the beds rather than a small nightstand. This helps give a little more surface area and storage to each kid! Don’t have room on your nightstand for a lamp? Wall mounted scones are a great way to clear up space!
