Considering we’re getting ready to have five kids in a three bedroom house, I think it’s a valid question.
Although we’re planning on putting the twins in our room for a good while, I have started thinking about our long-term plan. Whether that means converting another space in our home into a fourth bedroom, or sticking a few kids in one bedroom together, remains to be seen. The most economical solution would be to have them share, but would they kill each other? You know, lots to think about. . .
As far as actually making this solution look good, I’ve seen some really good examples lately. The photo above is of my friend Shannon’s boys’ bedroom. She’ll eventually phase out the crib for another twin bed, and I love the look. (Shannon writes a fun fashion/lifestyle blog, btw.)
A few other great examples of triple twin beds. . . .My concern for our house is storage since a third twin would eliminate a dresser.
Pottery Barn is always showing examples of triple twin beds. . . Of course, maybe they’re just trying to sell more beds :)
Quadruple bunks also seem be popping up everywhere and are a great solution, IF you have a really long wall, which we don’t. . . Plus, I wonder how this would work when they kids get bigger.
Double bunks are my favorite look, if you have the right room layout to make this work:
But, hanging bunks. . . . well, they kind of just make me dizzy.
What I really want to know is, did you share a room growing up? If so, was it a good or bad experience?
Do you have three or more kids in a room now? How’s it working out?
