4 Ideas for Choosing Beds When Siblings Share a Room

When siblings share a room, space becomes limited. No matter how spacious the bedroom is, it feels like there is a lack of space because there must be two of everything. One way to create more space or save some is choosing beds. While many great options are available, the following are the most popular when for two or more kids in one bedroom.

  1. Bunk Beds

Bunk beds are the most traditional option when siblings share a room. They consist of two beds stacked on top of one another with a ladder leading to the top bunk. They come in different sizes, with the top bunk typically being a twin and the bottom a twin or full.

  1. Loft Beds

Choosing to use loft beds is also a good way to create space without having your kids fighting over the top bunk. A loft bed is like a bunk bed, except the bottom will be an open space for playing instead of a second bed. Often, these beds have other furniture items built into them; thus, saving even more space. This might include a desk, dresser drawers or shelving.

  1. Captain’s Beds

Using a king size captain’s bed or two twin-sized captain’s beds saves space because they feature dresser drawers beneath the mattress. This gets rid of the need to include two dressers in the bedroom. Some models also feature drawers or shelving in the headboard, which saves more space when siblings share a room.

  1. Tall Twins

Another option is to choose two twin-sized beds that are a little taller than average. This allows you to utilize the space beneath for storage. You can use under-the-bed shoe storage, totes and bins to store certain items.

Any of these bed ideas can help create or save some space when siblings share a room in your home. Of course, which option is best will depend on your personal preferences and the size of the bedroom.
