Double up! Stylish Solutions For Shared Bedroom Spaces
By Jaymi Naciri via Realty Times
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.Apartment Therapy

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.Theme Rooms
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."Home Designing
