There’s just something about the symmetry of two beds side by side that makes them doubly fun to look at and decorate with. That’s why we decided to put our favorite designer bedrooms with two single beds in the spotlight so that the rest of the world will fall in love with them too. Whether you’re designing a bedroom for actual twins, or you’re looking to create a flexible, kid-friendly guest room, the double bed decorating ideas below will have you set for success.

Rethink the classic vertical side-by-side layout and place two double bids against a wall that faces horizontally with a side table in between. Cuff Home opted for a central table in which all of the child’s records and books fit.

Sky-high Suzani canopies make these single beds in a room from Melissa Rufty super luxurious and classic but also fun and unexpected. The matching skirts and intricate black and white pillows contrast beautifully with the ornate floral wallpaper and traditional monogrammed duvets.

Nestled in a corner, this cozy single bed in a room by Kevin Scott feels contemporary and fresh, but also sweet and cozy for a child in a smaller bedroom.

Hang a store-bought canopy from the ceiling instead of going the custom route that takes a little more dedication. In this purple design from Garrow Kedigan, the cream canopy complements the headboard and adds dimension.

The more the better, right? Beatriz da Costa created the ultimate relaxation space by cocooning the walls with a sky-blue wallpaper that will inspire a carefree childhood, but also lends itself well to a more mature age group as the resident grows up.

This chic bedroom from Tamsin Johnson Interiors proves that, with the right styling approach, twin beds can look just grown up as a double, queen, or even king. Here, a nearby chaise lounge, raised lighting and accents, such as the mirror and curtains, and a tasteful color scheme do the trick.

Interior designer Amir Khamneipur had to squeeze a spare room into his tiny apartment for his nephew. So he created a pair of six-foot benches that can be turned to become twin beds. They have been adapted with built-in drawers to also store bedding.

Just because they’re twins doesn’t mean they always have to match! Opt for complementary bedding in a variety of shades and shades for a more eclectic and unique look. Note this laid-back yet polished bedroom from Heidi Caillier.

Breegan Jane opted for contemporary transition pieces here. From the sculptural lamp to the suede bed frame, graphic throws, crisp linens and abstract artwork, everything feels both youthful and timeless.

Mix recycled antiques

Imaginative wall decals and playful bed frames give this bedroom from Ellen Niven a kid-friendly vibe, but classic investment pieces like an antique dresser make for longevity.

Arent & Pyke opted for modern, sculptural pieces that strike a very careful balance between playful and mature. From the striped table lamp to the wooden stool, the graphic rug, the linen bedding and the striking rug, everything feels both youthful and timeless. The Kelly Wearstler upholstered headboard is both sophisticated and wild, while the soft pink walls brighten up the atmosphere. It can really make anyone of any age feel at home.

Converting your adult child’s bedroom into a guest room? You can’t go wrong with twin beds with classic white linens and headboards to match the wallpaper. Embroidered quilts give them a formal, traditional look, while gingham skirts are a wonderfully playful finish.

Hang a piece of art between the two beds to break up the perfectly symmetrical look for a more modern aesthetic. The Novogratz have also changed things up with mismatched blankets and a bright red background.


Give it a sense of place

This isn’t your average kid’s room – it’s much, much cooler and it has a strong sense of place. The green bed linen and curtains bring a fresh and vibrant burst of energy to the antique wooden beds, terracotta floor tiles and cool gray walls.


Upgrade them for a teen

Four poster beds are cool, no matter what, a wild print makes it even more fun. Why use an end bench when you can install a Lucite indoor swing at the foot of your bed instead? Leave it to Studio Heimat to knock the teen room design out of the park.

If you can’t put two single beds side by side, stack them on top of each other! Whether you go the classic bunk route or put a trundle bed under a loft, be sure to pile up all the cozy textiles like Rayman Boozer did here.
