Have Your Kids Double Up and Create a Playroom | Apartment Therapy Ohdeedoh

Have Your Kids Double Up and Create a Playroom We talk all the time about siblings sharing bedrooms in small homes, but perhaps you have enough room for each child to have their own bedroom if they wanted, but your family decides to do something else with that extra room. This beautiful bunk bed set up allows what would have been a bedroom for one child to become a shared playroom instead. Many kids actually prefer to share a room with a brother or sister and this seems like a win-win.

Maybe it's because my husband and I both work, but when we're home, we want to be WITH our kid. So, we keep many of her toys and activities easily accessible and neatly stored in our common space (living room/dining room). Right now we only have a 2 yr old (and a baby on the way), so we couldn't really send her off on her own to play anyway, but I think I'd still prefer the idea of the kids mostly hanging out in common spaces with us anyway, and going up to their room(s) if they needed some alone time/privacy/whatever. FWIW, our baby on the way is a boy, so we do plan on the kids having separate rooms. I don't think a mixed g
