Siblings tend to fluctuate between sweet harmony and guerrilla warfare, and at times need to be separated for a while. They also need occasional solitude, no matter how they feel about their brothers or sisters.

Place headboards together, so the children are looking away from each other

Use a different color to identify each childs personal space

If both children like the same color....
compromise and get creative... eg: blue circles on white background, and for the other child, white circles on blue background.

Separate space with
tall bookcases
Armoires and wardrobes placed back to back and staggered will create a room divider.

Furniture
Kids room collection may include beds, headboards, bedside tables, dressers, armories, bookcases, hutches, tables and chairs and framed mirrors.

Make a bed more than a bed
One of the easiest ways to add a little privacy for each child -
bed tents and canopies. Kids love places to hide, to pretend and daydream..

Bunk beds are classic space savers when doubling up kids in a room, and the children love the adventure of using a ladder. Bunk beds are fun , and if kids fight for the top, add an extra opportunity to the learn to share - have them take turns!

A
loft bed makes optimum use of floor space. The sleeping area is on top, the storage and play or study area beneath.

Trundle beds are another option for space saving. Be sure the trundle draws out smoothly, and that your child can handle it alone.

Captains Beds with its built in units stand a little higher than standards beds because of the storage.

If you use twin beds, place them lengthwise against walls.

Create a right angle with the bunks in one corner, that way you create a little alcove retreat or nook where you can arrange desk and storage units. Or if you have a long wall, place bunks end to end. Each bed is quite separate this way and you gain special play, work or storage space under the elevated bed.

Modular furniture offers great flexibility.
Unfinished furniture  offers good value.
Fantasy Theme furniture  offers unique style.
Used furniture offers a bargain!

Room Dividers
A room divider that can open and close as desired helps to keep peace in a shared bedroom. Few ideas: suspend folding doors or shutters. Hang a curtain divider or
beaded curtains or lengthy roller shades from the ceiling.
Floor screens
another option.

Storage

Children are born pack rats. Every nook, cranny, bin or shelf soon fills up with their personal treasures, new and worn out toys, oceans of books, papers and puzzle pieces, not to mention clothing. A helpful extra in a room shared by siblings is lockable personal storage.

Unique and clever storage ideas: bread box, good size mailbox, fishing tackle box, clear covered containers, shoe boxes, cutlery trays, underbed rolling drawers on casters. Other space savers include storage units that stack on the floor, attach to the wall or hang from hooks.
A clothes tree looks nice and offers a resting place for sports equipment, toys and tools, as well as clothes. Children of all ages enjoy hanging things on pegs.
Window seats that lift up. Clever
closet storage.

Create a Window seat reading nook: put bookshelves on either side of the window and add a storage seat or bed if the area is large enough, this makes a cozy inviting place to curl up and read or daydream and provides extra storage also.

Back of door storage
Turn the back of your childrens doors into storage areas for books, pencils, toys, hair accessories, with shelving or
over the door shoe organizers
If you have paneled doors, make each panel a functional part of the room - bulletin board, chalkboard and a magnetic board.

Wall Storage
Keeping lightweight toys, books, games and other supplies on the wall frees up floor space. For the very young child, place shelves within reach.
Shelving with adjustable brackets allows flexibility as the child grows.

Attach a
toy hammock to the walls to store dolls, stuffed animals play equipment, toys and clothing that are not likely to get easily entangled in the mesh.

Baskets
Well constructed baskets are fairly indestructible, as well as versatile. Slide them
under the bed for out of sight storage, sit them on a desk to keep art and school supplies in order. Hang a small basket on the back of the door for clothing storage, will help the little ones to pick up and put away.
Wicker hamper for toy storage, spray painted to match the color of the room.

Add curtains  to the lower bunk, for a cozy private retreat or playing time.
