Arranging twin beds in a room


Usually, two children or guests have to share the same room and co-exist. In these situations, the main dilemma is always the bed placement. However, there is more than one way to organize a multi-person bedroom. Below, we have illustrated almost all possible solutions and combinations. However, all solutions are not suitable for every space. Each room has its own restrictions, regarding dimensions and proportions, the location of the entry door, the windows, the closet, etc.

How to arrange twin beds in a room

  • Create an L-shaped arrangement by placing the two beds in a corner of the room. It is preferable to keep an empty space between the beds, and place in the corner or in-between a piece of furniture, such as a wardrobe, a desk, a table or a nightstand. You can place the beds, footboard-to-footboard, headboard-to-headboard or headboard-to-footboard.

  • With the headboards on the same wall (parallel placement). Both beds are placed perpendicular to the longest wall with the headboards facing the room’s interior. Usually a nightstand or two nightstands are placed in-between. Alternatively, you can  place a wardrobe or a dresser in-between. Placing the beds next to each other to make a large bed is an option suitable only for small kids, since as a child grows up needs more personal space. Parallel arrangement, parallele beds  Parallel bed arrangement with a nightstand in-between
