Maxtrix Kids Low Loft Bed w/ Built In Dresser & Bookcase
I have a serious dilemma these days, and by serious I mean I don’t want to have to do what I’m thinking about doing, but I know I need to, so I am seriously dragging my feet.
(How’s that for a build up?)
I need to put my twin girls in separate bedrooms. There, I said it, so it’s practically already decided . . . mostly.
It’s a serious decision for many reasons. One, they are twins and they have slept together since the womb, literally. So separating them is kind of a big deal. Two, they are six-year-olds, and though I pictured at some point they’d want to have separate rooms, I didn’t think the day would come so soon. And three, our remaining “extra” bedroom is small, and it will require some creative storage options if I am going to make it work.
I know you are asking yourself, “Well, if it is such a big deal to separate them, why are you doing it?” And you would be perfectly justified in your question, so I’ll answer it this way. One of the girls is a, how should I say it . . . a very noisy sleeper, and by very noisy, I want you to imagine someone building furniture in your bedroom, in the middle of the night, every night. And then I want you to picture what it would be like to try to sleep through that.
So, I saw these cool Maxtrix storage beds the other day, the ones with the built in dressers and desks, and I was thinking this might be an option for my space problem. I want to put a bed in the very small room, but the room is definitely NOT big enough for a bed, a dresser, and a book/toy shelf, so I need a way to create space in a small room.
They have a super cute one that has some under-the-bed type storage, which I could totally use as a dresser. They also have one that has a bookshelf at the end of it, which would be great too! I can use it now for toys, and later for books and a great place for homework! (Can you tell I’m trying to talk myself into this?!)
Now that I have my mind wrapped around this, I’m actually kind of excited about it! The girls are going to have so much fun playing in each other’s rooms. I can picture it now, the tea parties, the parades back and forth between rooms, the trail of toys leading from one room to the other . . . wait . . . what am I thinking?!!!
LOL. Oh well, at least their rooms will be organized.
