Design Advice for Decorating a Shared Kids Rooms

One of the toughest rooms to design is a shared room. You want it to be attractive, but it still needs to store all your little ones bits and pieces! The rooms end up being a bit of a mish-mash as each child brings in pieces from their existing room.

As I prepare to design a room for my boys to share (and I’ll share with you some of my thoughts on the design over the coming months), I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite shared kids’ spaces I’ve found.

A Room For Three: A Nursery Design Board For Momma’s Gone City

Jessica of Momma’s Gone City is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met — so as soon as I found out she was expecting baby #3 I knew I had to whip up something special for her. Jessica lives with her husband, and her two toddlers (a girl and a boy) and now a brand new baby boy in a small apartment in New York City — and all three kiddos will be sharing a bedroom, so it’s safe to say that things are pretty cramped.

Kids have a lot of stuff. So the goal of this design is to keep things simple — and uncluttered!

I hope she likes it! Do you?

Before design this room, I spoke with Jessica and she told me that she had already purchased the Oeuf Perch Bunk Bed ($1,500) and the Oeuf Classic Crib ($940) — great choices! And her modern choice of furniture sent me on my way…

As a New York City dweller, I know all too well that small apartments in NY are much smaller than anywhere else — so I wanted to keep the space as simple as possible. Too many things on the walls of a small room can make it feel like it’s closing in on you. I selected three Vintage Modern Inspired 12″ Wooden Letters ($18 each) to place near the bed of each child — to personalize their space.

They’ll need some storage, as well as a changing area for baby — so I selected the inexpensive Ikea Expedit ($40). It’s cheap, modern and it’ll get the job done. A changing pad can be placed — and secured! — on the top, while bins containing diapering essentials and clothing changes (top two openings) and toys for the bigger kids (one for each) can be place on the bottom.

Chevron Zig Zag Curtains ($40 per panel) and a super retro-modern Artecnica Themis Mobile ($30) bring in some fun — with bold graphic patterns and lots of color. While a Baxton Studio Cradle Chair ($132) adds a modern place to sit, feed and bond. Add a soft rug, Ikea Flokati ($80), for everyone to enjoy some tummy time together!

Bunking {Inspiration for Shared Kids Bedrooms}

The thought of having more than one kid running around the house scares me to death these days {we are battling the terrible twos. they have lived up to their reputation.} but these rooms just might convince me to re-open the baby factory…

This room shared by three from The Bumper Crop has been making it’s way around the internet for several months now. I guess we just can’t stomp marveling at the genius of this room. ohdeedoh went behind the scenes and shared all of the details {check it out}.

This boys bunk room comes from the blog august fields. Bunks are a great option for large families with limited square footage. The owners of this home found a similar bunk in a magazine and had a builder create this to their own specifications. See more images here.

But bunking doesn’t necessarily mean bunk beds. This beautiful bright room comes all the way from the UK. Check out the rest of this lovely cottage on Desire to Inspire.
