Twin beds bring beauty and practicality to guest rooms and rooms for kids. Twin beds work well for children of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers. Two beds instead of one mean lots of flexibility for the guest room. As far as looks go, you don’t have to sacrifice style if you choose to include twin beds in bedroom decor. Below you will find eight bedroom designs that use two or more twin-size beds. See what you think:
Twin beds don’t have to match. Here you see each bed has its own color personality with throws and big art.
However, matching beds are not a bad thing. These upholstered headboards in blue feature chic nailhead trim. Touches of gray and yellow create a lot of visual interest.
This black and white bedroom is amped up with bold yellow beds and juju hats.
Chic and stylish in the attic, this guest room with twin beds features floral wallpaper on the ceiling as well as walls.
Twin beds with upholstered insets tie together purple hues and grey tones. With guest accommodations like this, an overnight visit may turn into an extended stay.
Traditional style never looks so good in the guest room. Not two, but three twin-size beds offer an expanded sleeping space.
Twin beds are the go-to sleeping options for children’s rooms. What a welcoming serene space!
Here’s a great idea for a apartment bedroom. Placing twin beds end to end rather than side by side gives this space an updated look and leaves lots of room for other furniture. We love this color combination. How about you?
