Inspiring Shared Kids Rooms

kids room


We’ve been talking about having another baby sometime soon, and while my husband would like us to have another bedroom first, I firmly believe they should share a room in the beginning. There’s something about living in a shared space that really bonds two (or more) young siblings — staying up late whispering secrets, giggling, creating shared forts. Do you agree?

If your kids are (or will be) sharing a room, take a look at these inspiring examples of shared kids rooms:
