Ideas For Shared Bedrooms For Boys and Girls
1. DIY Bunk Beds With Lofts
Loft Level Instead of building a set of bunk beds, consider making a loft “level”. Basically make a whole mini-floor for your kiddo’s top bunk. I love this layout!
2. Paint Your Kids Rooms Primary Colors
Pick Primary Colors. If your kids need to share a room make it one that both genders can feel comfortable in! I love how the primary colors are fun, how the beds are on the floor (great for newly out of the crib kiddos) and the storage of toys on the wall and even the closet pole along the wall.
3. Use Curtains For Privacy and Personal Space
Curtain it off. I think of privacy curtains for hospital rooms. But they are perfect for rooms with multiple genders too! Help your kids have privacy and yet be with their sibling!
4. Separate Spaces In Bedroom With 2 Different Wallpapers
Separate the room with Wallpaper. It is easy to see where “the line” is between these two sister’s “zones” in their room. This is a great way to visually add distinction without any special beds/construction.
5. Wall Bunk Beds With Curtains
Make a room-within-a-room. We have friends who have older kids share a room (mixed gender) their home is cozy and this is a perfect way to give the kids privacy even in limited space. I love how Gon was able to fit three kids into his room with built-in bunks.
6. Make A Reading Loft In Your Children’s Closet
Create a closet Hideout – What a fun way to give your kids their own play spaces in a shared bedroom. Create lofted nooks in your closet. This is perfect for bedrooms that use dressers or have double closets!
7. Build Triple Bunk Beds
Go triple. Stack your kids into a room. This link goes to a tutorial on how to make the bed (including rails).
8. Build A Closet Box and Add A Loft Bed
Add layers. This is a great idea for a room that currently does not have a closet. Build a closet “box” and on top of the closet add a loft bed, with another bed off to it’s side. This is a great way to give “zones” for your kids while they share a room and storage.
9. Twin Boys and Girls Shared Nursery Idea
This shared nursery is so sweet for twin boys and girls! This perfect while the babes are small.
