Double Up

There was a time when twin beds were out of style. The focus was on expansive mattresses to indulge your guests, and twin beds were seen as sleeping arrangements for the kids only.

Now, people have realized the outstanding flexibility that a set of twin beds can offer, particularly when it comes to guest room design and making preparations to host a variety of guests. Twin beds work for spouses, families, friends, you name it — and the style options are endless.

Velvet headboards give this room a posh feel while the green and white color scheme keeps the space clean and fresh, a great look for any generation.

A twin bed arrangement works especially well in a third-level or attic space, where a larger mattress might not fit comfortably. In addition to creating two additional sleeping spaces, the design below has undeniable charm and gives guests a cozy place to tuck in for the night.

You could also pamper your guests with an upscale hotel look, complete with coordinating wallpaper and throw pillows as well as leather head- and footboards that are accented by nailhead trim. Sophisticated enough for your guests, but with plenty of style for your teenager and her visiting friend.

I love the way that yellow is carried out in this design, starting with the twin beds and continuing in just the right amount, from a few key accessories to the fabric that drapes adorably over the beds. Yet another example that suits adults and children alike.

I’ll leave you with a twin bedroom design that dials up the cool factor — double-time! Inspired by black headboards with eye-catching curves, this room carries out the black and white theme in bedding, accessories and even a rug that ties the beds together. Guests of all ages would feel right at home in a room like this.

My Twin for the Win pinboard has a lot of other great ideas for taking the twin bedroom to a whole, new level. Check it out!
