3 Kids, 1 Bedroom: It Can Be Done! (Part Three)

I saved the best for last in my 3 Kids, 1 Bedroom Series!  Read part one here. And two here. Today, I’ll show you a video of how interior designer Nate Berkus fits three kids into one tiny bedroom. Also, I made a slide show with more ideas of how to fit three kids into a room. Some of the pictures are totally doable, others are just for inspiration. I couldn’t help myself!

I loved hearing about this mom’s story on the Nate Berkus Show. She is living in NYC in a two bedroom apartment with her husband and three kids. Ideally, they would move, but since her husband has been out of work, they are trying to make their current living situation work. Their three kids are ages 7-12 years old and share an 8 by 11 square foot room. See how Nate Berkus makes the most out of this space here. What do you think? Would you give this a try?

If that isn’t enough inspiration for you, here’s some beautiful solutions I found that squeeze in 3, 4, and even 5 kids in one room!

  • Modern Lines Triple Bunk Bed 1 of 9
    This is an example of a simple bunk bed done really well. It's not fussy or overdone. They nailed it on the color! I love gray for a kids room.

  • Bunk Bed with Trundle 2 of 9
    This is the system I use in my house. It works out great! You know what's weird? None of my kids like to sleep on the top bunk! I thought that was the best spot!
