Top Five Reasons Kids Should Share Rooms

Shared Rooms are a big topic around here, it seems folks are always on the hunt for ways to make them work. Sometimes its two boys or two girls in one room, sometimes its one older and one younger sibling, and even the occasional girl/boy combo (like we have here). Whatever the case, I am a fan!

Like I have told you before, I’m a huge advocate for kids sharing rooms and here are my top five reasons why:

  • The Never Ending Sleep Overs
  • The Sibling bonds that last a lifetime
  • The Space You’ll Save
  • Less Toys to Buy (kids who share rooms, share toys too!)
  • The Decorating Potential!!

If you are working on a shared room of your own, please know I am happy to help out in any way I can! If you need ideas, have questions or need help finding just the right colors or bedding for your kids — I am your girl. Just let me know and I’ll get started right away.

Here’s a few shared rooms that have got my eye as of late:
