Decorating With Grown-Up Twin Beds


The National Association of Home Builders says it expects 60% of new homes to have dual master bedrooms and The National Sleep Foundation's reports show that nearly 1 in 4 American couples are sleeping in separate beds, simply in search of a good night's rest. People seem to be needing a good sleep these days so couples are electing to sleep in separate bedrooms or try to stay together in a room with twin beds. Bedrooms featuring grown-up twin beds are becoming more and more popular. 

Empty nesters are also converting childern's bedrooms into chic guest rooms and grown-up twin beds are a favorite choice for the decor since a pair of twin beds is more convenient for guests who aren’t couples. Couples can always push them together if need be.

Gone are the day when twin bedrooms were thought of as youth rooms only. If you've opened a glossy home decor magazine lately you've probably seen plenty of rooms featuring wonderful bedrooms with chic and elegant grown- up twin beds. 

If a guest room do over is in your future, or you are attempting to save your marriage with separate beds, I hope the images I have gathered will be of assistance to your decision making.

Like all the other rooms in your house, the grown-up twin bedroom should be given alot of thought and attention to details. If you like a traditional bedroom, place a night stand between the twins and a couple of antique chairs at the foot. I like the curule seat in the middle! Accessorize with pretty vintage pictures and linens.
