But what if you just can't afford a separate bedroom for each kid? Or what if you decide that sharing a room will make your children learn to compromise? Or maybe you have twins (like us) who want to share a room? It is totally do-able. And if done right, you won't have constant fights over territory.
We offer up some great shared bedrooms today. Maybe they will give you some ideas for how to keep your kids happy while they share a room with their siblings.
Generally, if you have an average to small sized room you're going to have to think about going vertical, like with bunk beds. But there are other options as well.
If you have the space, it's always good to be able to give each child some designated space in their room as "theirs" and theirs alone.
More Than Two
Having more than two kids share a space can be tricky, no matter what the size of the room. But with a little ingenuity, you can make it work and look fabulous, too.
