A bunk bed doesn't exactly scream style to most people. Many parents only choose to go with bunk beds when they don't have enough room to work with, but we think bunk beds are awesome! Whether you're putting together a bedroom for two siblings or just need an extra resting spot for when lil cousins or friends spend the night, the double-decker beds are a great option — just be sure to follow some safety guidelines to keep kids secure in them. Check out these 10 stylish kids' bunk bed rooms for some creative decor ideas for your tot's bedroom.
Bunk up! Most of us don't have the luxury of living in a six-bedroom home—meaning siblings often have to share bedrooms. Sometimes the kids are excited. Other times, they are vocally opposed to the idea. The most important thing to remember when putting together a shared space for kids is to make it fun and give each child a space to call their own. Get inspired with these five shared bedroom ideas!

They have to sleep in the same bedroom for the time being. Any suggestions how to decorate/PAINT especially for both?" I made some of my own suggestions with 10 ideas for gender neutral children's rooms, but I thought I'll poll all of you for your thoughts as well on Facebook. We got a great response with so many hues I'd never thought of, so I'm really excited to share these color ideas with you!
- "A light metallic gray or white and orange." — Colette O.
- "Definitely turquoise and white, but I guess it depends on the age." Katrín S.
- "I have always thought navy blue and a lavender - on the boys side emphasize the navy and the girl the lavender." — Heidi W.
- "Blue walls! Both my kids' rooms (5-year-old son, nursery for 19-mo-old daughter) are a pale blue color. They aren't exactly the same shade but they both work. As for décor, kelly green would be a good accent color that is good for both sexes. You could do more gender-specific coverlets on each bed made from cool fabrics, and then get one more coordinating gender-neutral one and tie it all together." — Eliza M.
- "Sage green is a good gender-neutral color." — Julie K.
- "Keep the walls neutral. Curtains, sheets, pillows and decorations with indigo and orange." — Evelyn S.
- "Aqua blue!" — Marissa J.
- "Navy and yellow, or nautical." — Kelly S

I've covered decorating gender-neutral bedrooms for adults (couples) before, but never for children, so I thought I'd take on this topic with another slideshow.
