Fitting multiple kids in a house can be challenging, and when they have to double - or tripl - up (or more!) in one room, style can take a hit.

The obvious choice with multiple kids and beds is often a traditional side-by-side approach. But if you're looking for a more interesting or unique layout that has all the function with a little more flair, that's only the beginning.

How about putting the beds next to each other? Head to head probably won't foster an easy sleeping environment, but foot to foot might. This layout is also great for a smaller space because the placement of the beds along the wall leaves the rest of the room open. "Gaining in popularity, this layout allows for more open space in the room for playing," said Apartment Therapy.

If the idea of bunk beds brings to mind ugly framing with zero flair, you haven't seen some of today's more modern options. This room with four built-in bunks can work as a full-time solution or a vacation home, giving each sleeper a private space with their own light control and storage.

Beachy-chic style, natural light, and privacy with each bunk getting its own window and set of drapes. What could be better?

Building in two bunks on either side of the room allows the area in the middle to become a chic, shared gathering space. The fir-paneled walls, custom built-ins, chandeliers, and luxe fabrics amp up the style.

Housing two kids of the opposite gender can prove difficult if you want to give them their own space and still maintain some style. This lofted solution gives each a sleeping and hangout space, while the design is complementary but still personalized.

You can achieve a similar idea by splitting the room in half and using a bookcase as a separator.

If the room's size or layout makes it difficult to avoid side-by-side beds, placing a softer barrier in between them and adding in color and texture can help make the space feel luxurious and more private.

"This shared kids room design begins with a black and white base in the form of a huge geometric rug and forest themed wallpaper," said Home Designing. "On top of the monochromatic base scheme, small bursts of glorious color cover the two kids beds and matching desk chairs. The twin beds are connected by a shared couch that provides a perfect perching place for the siblings soft toy collection."
