Harmony in a Shared Kids Bedroom – How to Achieve the Impossible with Cuckooland

When we’re young, we hold on tightly to the things that define us. A kid’s bedroom is their mecca of unbridled play and comfort, and trying to keep the kiddywinks happy when they’re bunched in with brothers or sisters is a thorny problem for most parents.

Luckily, Cuckooland has found the perfect solution to keep those mini meltdowns to a minimum. Here are some tips for building a shared room that is as fun as it is harmonious…

The Ladder to Peace

Bunk Beds are an instant win for kids of all ages. They impart a sense of privacy that can be hard to achieve otherwise. Nowadays the humble bunk bed has taken on a drastic transformation to include creative extras and full add-ons like slides and climbing ropes.

We think the Adventure Kids Bunk Hangout is an amazing choice for kiddies seeking a fort to call their own. Made with the highest quality pinewood, it has a top window cabin for exciting look-outs on a new day, and has pull-out drawers below for extra storage space. This feature can also be converted into a guest bed for sleepovers. This bunk bed provides a much-needed canvas to explore shared imagination and play. The only argument you’ll be hearing is who gets the top!

For those budding bookworms, why not check out Mathy By Bols’ Dominique Triple Bunk Bed with Tree Bookcase? It comes in an astonishing 20 different colour schemes and boasts a tree-themed shelving unit crawling up its foot-side. With plenty of room to display either of your children’s personal knick-knacks and books, the Triple Bunk is an outrageously good base for your little ones to bounce and doze to their delight.

If you’re on the hunt for a versatile sharing solution, the Leo L Shaped 2 in 1 Combination Bunk Bed is ideal. This sleek and modern bunk bed can be split into two beds when the times right to separate the kids. What’s more the kids can choose to create an L shaped bunk bed or a standard bunk bed, while they are room sharing!

Clear the Clutter

Living amongst someone else’s messes is a hard ask. You’ll know if you have a couple of tykes – or even teenagers – that their floor is a minefield of this and that, a blitzed tip of toys and lumpy t-shirts. Without resorting to burning things for firewood, it’s a serious task to keep their room neat and tidy, so we’re here to help with a bunch of storage units that’ll banish intrusive clutter forever.

We have a great range of Storage Boxes which are very handy for packing away your kids’ stuff, and they look great to boot! Ranging from sturdy wooden designs for kids who crash out on any surface to super sweet fabric storage cubes. You’re sure to find a storage solution for any room design in our extensive collection.

When it comes to storing clothing you can get the maximum storage from our collection of Wardrobes and Drawers. Take for example the fun and functional Woood Connect 3 Door Wardrobe. This ingenious wardrobe provides ample storage for two whilst retaining that cool and creative element that kids just love.

For an elegant solution to your kids’ hobby kits, we’re in love with the Industrial Kids Locker Storage Bench in Hertog Grey by Woood, which functions as a seating area and somewhere to lock away their possessions when not in use. The Dutch brains behind this gorgeous piece are mad about sustainable timber, so you’ll feel good that you’re helping the bedroom, and the environment in general, stay on the right track.

Everything Matters

The smallest additions to a shared kids’ abode will work wonders on differentiating a child’s interests from their brother or sister. When space is tight, choosing decorations that speak to their personality will encourage their sense of independence, and give them their own sphere to build and grow as they wish.

If your brood can’t decide on what animal is cooler, Snurk Bedding Sets need to be your go to! From cute kittens to cheeky monkeys and everything in-between, no kid can resist this veritable Noah’s Ark of themes from sleep experts – Snurk. All made from 100% soft cotton, with matching pillowcases, there’s a duvet cover for every kid!

The creature feature continues with Wild & Soft’s Plush Animal Head series. These adorable wall adornments are extremely soft and cuddly looking. Part of the company’s mandate to soothe children everywhere with an inviting naturalism. If you’ve got a tiger-crazed youngster sharing with a kid who’s sweet on flamingos, you can now project both of those passions on each half of the room, so they’ll be sharing without having to settle!
