For growing families, a shared kids room might be unavoidable. No matter it is because there is a new baby on the way, or you want to encourage your kids to bond and learn about sharing/caring, or you just need more space, there are many reasons to opt for a shared kids bedroom.
However, it can be no fun for kids to share a bedroom. Hence, before putting your kids into a room together, it’s important to spend time thinking about how the room will be laid out. A shared kids bedroom is not as simple as put a bunk bed. You kids will do a lot of things inside their room – play, learn and of course rest. Hence, a well designed shared room is very important. The room should not only do they look great, but they are super functional too.

And since it is symmetrical, so it is quite fair for each kid to own individual space in a shared room. This type of room is more suitable for big kids who might have different schedule of learning and sleeping.

Bed usually takes most of the space in a room. If the shared room is small, then a bunk bed is the rescuer. By stacking beds together, you can save quite a lot space to place other furniture. Moreover, many bunk beds comes with storage which are extremely useful.
