Recently, my husband and I figured it would be a fun (?) idea to move our kids into the same room. We’re tired of the toys all over the house so, this way we gain a play room. Plus, I love the idea of kids sharing a room. I’ve heard so many great stories about it. My little brother and I shared a bedroom for a long time and we turned out pretty good… I think.
My dilemma now has been setting up 1 room for two kids.
A little background, in case you don’t hang out here often: We have 1 boy, Mason, who is almost 5. And, we have 1 girl, Maddie B, who is 2. Maddie is currently still in her crib, but I think we will transition her to a real bed soon. One other thing for us to consider in our redesign- Mason is dying for a bunk bed.
For now, we just threw all of their furniture into the room. We did’t want to invest in a new room if it wasn’t going to work out. I really like things to match and coordinate. So, basically, this room is killing me.
I’ve been working on some ideas and color themes for the room.
Shared Bedroom Inspiration
First up: These beds!
This solves the whole “Mason wants a bunkbed” without it actually being as high as a regular bunk bed. I think we are going to get two (the price point is incredible) and flip one upside down for Maddie to use. We’ll also probably paint the exposed wood grey.
Next up: Bedding.
This has been the hardest part for me. What colors to go with. What patterns will coordinate well. Here are some of my favorites:
My favorite: Fun Decor
The best part is picking out fun decor for the room. We’ll need some storage, fun pillows, wall decor, probably, well definitely, that gummy bear night light…
I would love to hear your thoughts! What are some of your favorite color/pattern combos for a shared room? Plus, any tips for two kids in one shared room would be great!
