While dedicating zones for each kid, you have to take care it doesn’t promote division at an emotional level. So, here are some wonderful ideas to plan and design a shared kids room:

In homes where the shared room is tiny in size it is always a great idea to install built-ins. You can install beds in such a way that they are joined by a storage unit in the corner. So, each kid can have access to their storage compartment. Furthermore, you can also outfit the beds with drawers.
2. One Headboard for Two Beds

Three beds in a single room can take up a lot of space and your kids will barely have any room to walk around. To cope with this design dilemma you can put a sturdy triple bunk bed that also has storage units.

If the furniture in the room is limited then don’t hesitate and experiment with colours. Paint the wall with colour blocking pattern and roll out a matching rug between the beds.
7. Set Up a Homework Area
