Bedroom ideas for Twins – where do you start?

When they are little it’s easy isn’t it, they don’t have an opinion, their beds are only small, it’s fairly simple…

But what happens when they get that little bigger, they are in big boy/big girl beds, they have favourite colours – not always the same, or even coordinating…  They have opinions!

So here’s some bedroom ideas for twins:

So what do you do, how do you try and please not only both of them, but also you!  A friend recently asked this very question as she has B/G twins who are starting school in Sept and they have different views on what they want.  I promised to come up with some inspiration to help.

Bed placement

Obviously it’s lovely to be able to fit two junior/single beds comfortably into a bedroom, but not everyone has that luxury.  Or maybe you want something a little different, a little quirky…

For me if you have the room then I love the 2nd image of 2 beds along adjoining walls.  However if you haven’t got the space or fancy something a little different then I really like 2nd bunk bed layout.  This would work just as well with two single beds and could be created using a single loft bed and separate single bed, giving plenty of options for future re-design.

Colour scheme

And so what do you do if they choose opposing colours?  Go with it…  One thing you do need to do is keep the design simple.  Either stick with one pattern, or stick with a very simple style.  This ensures the colour/decor doesn’t become overpowering and too busy.

monochrome guest room

Stick to a fairly neutral base colour scheme (grey monochrome is a perfect example) and introduce colours in soft furnishings.  With this decor an introduction of two separate colours schemes for each bed would work just as well.

Here is a fantastic example of using colours to it’s full impact.  Keeping all furniture simple with clean lines, walls kept white and not a flourish in sight means despite the bold colours used, this room looks clean and fresh.

Navy twins room

Navy is also a perfect neutral base on which to design a room.  Keeping the majority of the decor & bedding in the same Navy/White colour scheme means even the introduction of bold stripes doesn’t distract. Here the introduction of bedding/soft furnishings along with personalised artwork means that the room remains cohesive whilst each bed has it’s own individual feel.

Or why not go all out multi colour.  This gorgeous dotty room would work just as well in a bigger boy/girl room.  Ensure the colours wanted by each child are in the ‘multi’ and it will ensure that even if both beds are different colours they will blend perfectly with the room!

Inspired?

So there we have it, I hoped that this has inspired a couple of ideas for you all, and I would love to see your twin rooms.  Feel free to tag me in your posts on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
