Rachel is curious,

I would like to ask reader's who have children that share a room to send pics and ideas.


Dear Rachel,
We love it when kids share rooms. Yes, it has its challenges, but we think the benefits outweigh all that. Even in a small room, it's important that each child feel that they have a space to call their own. That can be done in a number of ways. One way is with dividers.

We recommend the Atoll from Ikea. It's child-safe, and a cheap way to set some boundaries. Another option from Ikea is the Expedit bookshelf. This could be used for storage, while also dividing up the room.

We also found these single-panel room dividers from Iroom Dividers. Kids can't tip them over, and you can choose from chalkboard, dry-erase, or pegboard.

Anyone have any creative ideas? Leave your comments, and don't forget to email us your pictures!
