Children are the ultimate joy for families, who want to give them the best conditions of living and growing up. Ideally, each child should have their own room and enjoy privacy and sufficient space to play and learn. But when all you have is a small apartment or house, you have to compromise and arrange one room for two or more children. However, with a few decorations and clever arrangement of the furniture, a small sibling room can be a beautiful place where your children learn to bond and share from the earliest age, growing into caring and sociable adults. Here are some charming ideas for your children’s shared bedroom:

#1 Arrange Beds Along the Walls

These beds are placed flush against the walls at a 90 degree angle, ensuring that they take as little space as possible to give the children more space to play. The vertical stripes or the bedding create the visual illusion of a more spacious room and individualized coloring takes into account of the children’s different personalities.

#2 One For All

If you thought it is hard to accommodate two children in one room, what about four? Yes, it can be done. A clever system of bunks arranged against the walls leaves these four musketeers sufficient space to play in their little kingdom. Note how each bunk bed has its owner’s initial and each bed has different colored bedding.

#3 Growing Together

These children are now teens. Their old bunk beds no longer fitted them, but there is not room for two side by side adult beds. So, the parents stuck to the same principles and created another pair of bunk beds on a solid metal frame.  Also note the legs with castors to help arrange the beds around the room in the best position.

#10 Toddler and Baby

We left the most challenging situation for last. What if you have an active toddler and a new baby and they need to share a room? First, you decorate the room like a coloring book. Next, you opt for a low bed for the toddler to allow him to get in and out of bed without incidents. Last, you arrange the bed and the baby’s cribs close to the corners of the room to leave the rest of the room free for walking and playing.
