TIPS FOR SHARING A BEDROOM Making the most out of the home you're in can mean children sharing a bedroom. Thankfully modern bunk beds and sleeping options offer a variety of configurations that can surely appease even the most stubborn and picky child. From bed and desk combos to floating beds to princess castles and pirate ships, you can take the room from boring to spectacular quite easily, which can help children adjust to the idea of sharing a bedroom if it’s new concept to them. If your local furniture shop doesn't have the right configuration for your needs, head online to shop or browse ideas on a website like Pinterest and venture into DIY territory. When bunk beds aren't an option, or your children are “too old” for them, separate beds or living spaces with screens placed on the floor, fabric drapes hanging from the ceiling or even dressers or other furniture. Use paint and decor elements to give each child their own sense of space by making their portion of the room into an area that reflects their personality. Having the beds up against the wall in a “L” format leaves the largest open area but sometimes arranging the beds on opposite walls creates the distance and private space children might require. Lots of communication, involvement in choosing décor and bedding and highlighting the benefits of sharing a room will all help children feel more comfortable as well.
