Getting the best out of one bedroom for 3 kids

I’m so honored to be part of the BHG Live Better Network where, as a blogger, I’ve received compensation by BHG at Walmart. The opinions stated in “Getting the best out of one bedroom for 3 kids” are my own. For more updates on their products and decor ideas, you can always follow them on FacebookPinterestTwitter and Instagram.

When faced with the challenge of making the most out of one bedroom for my 3 kids, the first thing that came into my mind was the age difference. While one of them is a tween, the other two are just curious preschoolers who love playing around and believe they truly are princesses. I have to confess that perhaps it was me who might have inspired them to think like that.

Finding the perfect beds

So with a limited space, I only had two options, either bunkbeds or trundles. Knowing my little ones so well, and anticipating their Rapunzel’s tower reenactment, I opted for beds that will easily open and close when needed. While searching for these types of beds, I was pretty amazed when I found “Better Homes and Garden Kids Panama Beach Twin Captain’s Bed with Trundle” at Walmart. Its clean lines design and the additional 3 drawers for storage were certainly details that called my attention. This bed, also in gray color, as you just read comes with the trundle included within its amazing price; this was very hard to obtain in other stores I searched since almost all sell the trundle part separately.
These beds just took a couple of minutes to assemble and felt incredibly sturdy. The trundle part glided in and out without any trouble and my two preschooler princesses loved it (read “excitedly jumped”).

Bedding options in a fun color

After all the excitement ended, it was time to find the bedding. As many of us well know, girls naturally tend to gravitate towards pink. The challenge became finding the one pink that actually met their expectations and mine. The new kids’ line from Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart has an amazing assortment of beautiful bedding designs. For the girls’ bedroom I chose a “Ruched Dot Beding Comforter Set” because I can mix its pattern with others especially if in the future I wanted to go wild with different sheets. This comforter set came with a pillow sham and a decorative owl pillow (not shown) and I added some extra pillows with some glitz and positive vibes for a more girly look.

To draw that imaginary limit line, I used a 5’x7’ “Better Homes and Gardens Border Stripe Textured Print Rug”  in gray which besides matching the color of the ”BHG Basket Weave Grommet Window Panels”, they serve as an excellent scenario for the girls to dance and play.

Creating areas for different ages and interests

After creating a new studying area for my tween, I decided the little ones deserved also a place to read. Taking into consideration the size of this room, a table for them would’ve been too big, But I found the “Better Homes and Gardens Kids’ Metal Table” at Walmart in the perfect size (27.5” x 27.5” x 20”). I was also able to find some matching chairs that looked just like miniature Tolix chairs.

Love the design of the Better Homes and Gardens Traditional Task Lamp I found at Walmart. It is perfect size for my daughter’s desk and adds just a touch of vintage flair to this area.

As you can see I was able to create a comfortable and functional space with some key pieces. No matter the size of the space and the age gap, I know now these room will be their favorite spot. I don’t know, but for some reason bedtime has suddenly started earlier!
