At House Beautiful, we’re big fans of twin beds in guest bedrooms and children’s bedrooms. There is just something about the symmetry of two beds side by side that makes them doubly fun to look at and decorate. So we decided to highlight our favorite designer rooms with twin beds for the rest of the world to fall in love with as well. Whether you are designing a bedroom for identical twins or want to create a flexible and kid-friendly guest bedroom, the twin bed decorating ideas below will have you success.

Rethinking the layout

Rethink the classic vertical layout side-by-side and orient two twin tenders against a horizontally facing wall with a side table in between. Cuff Home has opted for a central table that adapts to all the child’s records and books.


Mix the patterns

The extra tall Suzani awnings make these twin beds in a Melissa Rufty bedroom super luxurious and classic but also fun and unexpected. Matching skirts and intricate black and white cushions contrast nicely with the delicate floral wallpaper and traditional monogrammed blankets.


Cozy in a corner

Tucked away in a nook, this cozy twin in one bedroom by Kevin Scott is contemporary and fresh but also soft and cozy for a child in a smaller bedroom.



Hang a store-bought awning from the ceiling instead of going the custom route which requires a bit more engagement. In this purple design by Garrow Kedigan, the cream canopy complements the headboard and adds dimension.


Inspire peace

The more the merrier, right? Beatriz da Costa has created the ultimate resting space by wrapping the walls in a sky blue wallpaper that will inspire a carefree childhood but also lends itself well to a more mature age group as the occupant grows up.


Raise it up

This chic bedroom from Tamsin Johnson Interiors proves that with the right style approach, twin beds can look like a double, queen, or even king. Here, a nearby lounge chair, raised lighting and accents like the mirror and curtains, and a tasteful color scheme do the trick.


Make the magic happen

Interior designer Amir Khamneipur needed a spare bedroom in his small apartment for his nephew. So he created a pair of six-foot-long banquettes that swivel to become twin beds. They are also personalized with built-in drawers for storing bedding.


Mix and match

Just because they’re twins doesn’t mean they always have to match! Opt for complementary bedding in various tones and shades for a more eclectic and unique look. Take note of this relaxed but refined bedroom by Heidi Caillier.


Stay timeless

Breegan Jane opted for contemporary and transitional pieces here. From the sculptural lamp and the suede bed frame, to the graphic throws, crisp bedding and abstract artwork, it all feels both young and timeless.


Focus on comfort

Polka dot walls and a pointed black lamp help anchor this sweet Brittany Bromley bedroom. Stacked with plenty of pillows and luxury bedding, these shabby chic twin beds are sure to inspire sweet dreams.


Do double duty

Three twin beds along the back wall of this Charlotte Barnes media room also double as rollaway beds for sleepovers, but they also double as comfy sofas for attending parties.


Add privacy

Give some privacy to the twin beds in a shared room with some cut. This long, narrow space designed by Cameron Rupert Interiors features whimsical styling and practical built-in elements.


Mix reused antiques

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


Build it

Arent & Pyke have opted for modern and sculptural pieces that strike a very careful balance between playful and adult. From the striped table lamp and wooden stool, to the graphic rug, linen bedding and eye-catching rug, everything looks both young and timeless. The Kelly Wearstler tufted headboard is both sophisticated and wild, while soft pink walls brighten the mood. It could really make someone of any age feel right at home.


Clean it up

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


Break the symmetry

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


Give him a sense of belonging

This is not an ordinary child’s room, it is much, much cooler and there is a strong sense of belonging. Green bedding and curtains bring a burst of fresh, vibrant energy to the antique wooden beds, terra-cotta tiles, and cool gray walls.


Improve them for a teenager

Canopy beds are cool no matter what, a wild print makes it even more fun. Also, why use an end bench when you can instead install a Lucite indoor swing at the foot of your bed? Leave it to Studio Heimat to take the design of the teenager’s bedroom out of the park.


Go vertical

When you can’t put two twin beds side by side, stack them on top of each other! Whether you take the classic bunk bed route by placing a trundle bed under a loft, be sure to stack all the comfy textiles like Rayman Boozer did here.
