Sharing space, sharing love

When two siblings share a room, it can be tricky to get the space just right so each child will love it. With the right furniture for kids, you can turn a simple room for two into a shared space where they each feel comfortable, show their personality, and enjoy the privacy they need.

Bunk up for double the fun

A shared bedroom is fun doubled, more so if there’s a bunk bed to level up the room’s design. A staple in kids’ bedroom furniture, bunk beds provide a great play space that blends togetherness and personal space at the same time.

A warm and cheerful ambiance

Creating a shared bedroom each child will love is all about creating a space filled with light and warmth. Besides ceiling lights, add decorative lamps to illuminate their tables and double as a night lamp. You can even bring the night sky into the room by hanging fairy lights or chain lights on the walls. Children’s spaces can be the most creative spaces in a home especially when it comes to lighting.

A wall filled with wonder

In a shared room, it's important to let each child's personality shine through with creative ideas for kids’ spaces. Install shelves as part of your kids' bedroom furniture, where they can showcase their favorite toys, books, and art creations. Hang up smiling portraits, posters of their beloved cartoons, and prints that spark joy. Save a space for each child’s favorite keepsake.

Storage for two

When kids play games, sometimes clutter is the winner. Play at home can get messy but don’t let clutter win over. Keep order in the room with creative storage furniture for kids. Storage tubs and multi-purpose cabinets are fun ways to keep toys and art materials neat and tidy -- just some of the winning tips for a playful kids' room makeover.

Safe and comfortable

Install a night light for sleeping time, place a stuffed toy on the bed to cuddle with, or set up a table and kids' chair at the corner for play at home. And for the rare moments when a child needs privacy, a privacy curtain will be a big help to make a mini sanctuary or private play space for each child.

A cozy nook for each one

When kids share a room, they still want to maintain a sense of individuality. A color coded kids’ room will do just the trick -- setting up zones for each child so they have a space they can call their own.
