We talk all the time about siblings sharing bedrooms in small homes, but perhaps you have enough room for each child to have their own bedroom if they wanted, but your family decides to do something else with that extra room. This beautiful bunk bed set up allows what would have been a bedroom for one child to become a shared playroom instead.
Many kids actually prefer to share a room with a brother or sister and this seems like a win-win. They may change their minds when they're older, but by then they will have outgrown the desire for a playroom, too.
We spotted this room in a worth-the-visit gallery of kids' room design at Canadian House and Home.
