Two Kids in One Room: Kids Furniture Buying Tips

It can be a tight squeeze and a war zone when two kids share one room, but it doesn't have to be. You can set-up the bedroom in such a way that each child has his own space, plus a shared space where they can hang out together. Below you will learn what type of kids furniture you need to make this happen!

Bunk Bed

Sleeping Arrangements for Two Kids in One Room - To make the most of your double-occupied kid's room it's smart to get a bunk bed for the space. A twin over twin bunk bed is the best choice because it only takes up the floor space of one twin bed, so you can sleep two in an area where you usually sleep one. A bunk bed like the Coastal Seattle Twin over Twin Bunk Bed in Cherry will work great in a boy's or girl's bedroom. This bunk bed's traditional design makes it look great with just about any type of kids furniture pieces and its cherry finish will look stunning with any room decor.

kids desks

Personal Space for Two Kids Sharing One Room - Each child will need his own personal space and the easiest way to accomplish this is by setting up two corner kids desks in the room. Place each desk on opposite sides of the room, so your kids have their own area for doing homework, arts and crafts or surfing the web. The SouthShore U@Work Corner Desk in Cherry is a great choice because of its stylish look and functional design. It fits into the corner of a room to take up less space and comes with enough room up top for a computer, plus has a keyboard tray. It also comes with a hutch, pencil drawer and file drawer where lots of kid things can be stored. This is one well-built, sturdy and long lasting kids desk that both kids will love!

Privacy in a Two-Kid Bedroom Space - If your kids want some added privacy you could separate the room with a decorative folding screen or hang a curtain from the ceiling. You'll want to add something that is mobile, encase your kids want to eventually open the space up and eliminate the room division.

Creating a Common Area for Both Kids to Enjoy Together - In a room for two you should also create a space where the kids can hang out together to encourage sibling bonding. This space should consist of a few items like two kids chairs, bookcase and reading lamp. Below you'll find a few great suggestions that will create the ideal kid lounging area in a shared bedroom.

kids rugs

Added Comfort for Two Kids to Enjoy - When it comes to adding comfort and warmth to a space, it's a good idea to get a stylish rug. You could get one to be added to the common area in your two-kid space, or get a rug for each side of the room, so the kids have their own rug for resting their tired feet or laying on when reading a good book. The Fun Rugs Wacky Blue Wave Rug is just right for any kid's bedroom thanks to its fun design, beautiful shades of color and softness.

kids chairs

Kids Chairs - The Comfort Research 7 Ft XXL Fuf Chair in Blue Sky Suede is the perfect kid's chair because it's very comfy, stylish and mobile. Add two in your kids' bedroom, so they both have a seat, but when the seats aren't being used they can be moved out of the way to create a more open room vibe.


Bookcases - The common area should also include some kind of bookcase where your kids can keep their favorite books and games. The SouthShore Vintage Collection Bookcase is the perfect choice. It's tall and slim, so it won't take up too much room and has plenty of shelves for keeping both kids' books in order.


Light for Two - The last thing you need to add to the common kid-space is a light that both kids can share. The Lite Source Magisk 3 Light Floor Tree Lamp is just right because it has three adjustable lights that your kids can point in any direction for the perfect reading light or illumination when just hanging out.
