Design help for 2 teens sharing a room
January 10, 2013 5:29 AM Subscribe
I have 2 teen boys who have to share a room but without bunk beds. We are a family of 6 that live in 3 bedroom home(all teen boys). The 2 that are sharing right now have been switched from their previous situation. They are 18 (college freshman) and 13. The problem is they are currently sleeping in a bunk bed (twin over full) but that's not working anymore.They've both complained about one moving too much or if one goes to sleep later the climbing into the bed is waking the other one up. Or vice versa when one has to get up much earlier then the other. Also one likes to read in bed and for some reason that causes a problem too. My thought was to place the beds on opposite sides of the room and create separate spaces.

This is where I need help. I am design challenged and I am having a hard time finding pictures or designs on google that aren't for little kids or tremendously expensive (like hanging a bed from the ceiling type shit) or just a huge room. The room isn't that big - maybe 10x12 ft but with a big closet that's underutilized. I have some Expedit
shelves from Ikea that we could use and I could always go back to Ikea for more stuff. I need to find a way to make this work.
