Lately, I have been trying to think of ways to refresh my home without spending a ton of money. Spring is in the air (maybe when the snow melts) and that always gets me in the mood for some redecorating.
Since our youngest daughters are close in age, my girls share a bedroom. We live in a small ranch house so a solo bedroom isn’t really an option right now. I have been scouring the internet looking for shared girls room inspiration that would be easy on the wallet.
Now that my kids are getting a little older, their room needs to work for them. They need their own space but it would be nice to make their bedroom look (somewhat) cohesive. Plus the room has to function as a playroom, bedroom and study.
While trying to get them to agree on colors is not an easy task, we ALL agree the room needs some organization. Especially since my 11-year-old is a
hoarder collector of all the things. We can’t do bunk beds since my youngest daughter has a seizure disorder, so that was out of the equation for us.
So I set out to find some ideas that could work for us (that are not bunk beds). I hope you can find some inspiration as well. All these idea can be changed with simple paint and bedding/decor choices.

This one is cute from Pottery Barn Kids. Especially if the beds have under bed storage!
Great Inspiration for organizing a shared closet from Organizing Homelife.
This is a cool idea from Kids Room Ideas for giving kids some much needed personal space in a compact way.
The platform bed idea from Fresh Home is fun and practical (although I would skip the loft part!)
This look from Kids Theme Bedrooms is great if you have a small room and the kids have a TV. I like the different way of arranging the beds too.
Amazing idea from homedit because each child gets their own shelving and under bed storage.
HGTV has a nice idea for dividing a kids room, while adding some much needed storage.
This painted headboard idea from Homes to Love is so cute and inexpensive! It would be fun to do with chalkboard paint as well!
I like the beds back to back like this. Especially if you have a long and narrow room – this would work nicely! (photo credit: Nextelements.com)
These neutral daybeds from Decor Pad are great for growing with kids as their taste and style changes.
As the kids get older, they need their own space for homework. I love this idea from bright.star.kids on Instagram. It’s a great way to incorporate two desk spaces in a small area.
This idea from thethriftedhouse on Instagram is so cute! I love the entire chalkboard wall and fake animal heads!
My girls have been trying to get me to go the route of getting two couches that pull out into beds in order to have more space during the day. I saw this photo on mommymarx2 Instagram and thought it was pretty cute to do something like that! It just might work 🙂
This is a beautiful idea for a shared room from adrigibsonarquiteta Instagram that could definitely grow with them. I love the Chevron wallpaper in the back!
I hope this inspires you and gives you a few ideas to incorporate into your children’s rooms today!
