A Shared Montessori Bedroom

It's been awhile since I've shared our shared Montessori bedroom space. Before Teddy was born, Nora and Gus started sharing the room that Henry and Nora used to share together. At that time we converted my office into another bedroom for Henry. We've been in this arrangement for a year now and it works really well for our needs. Here's a look at the bedroom space. 

Bed and Self Care

We use a bunk bed to save space in this room. Nora moved into this room when she turned 2 and into the top bunk at just over 4. I love that the bunk is very short and that the bottom bunk is a floor bed. Both have been perfect for our younger kids. Next to the bunk bed is a small self-care area. This includes the laundry basket, a mirror, and small shelf with hair care products.

Shelves and Materials

We choose to keep a few materials in their bedroom to work with. For us this stuff is mostly used at quiet time or before bed for play. But, they are allowed to play with it whenever they feel called. We typically keep mostly open ended toys in here so that they appeal to multiple ages and to multiple children using at the same time. Our beloved farm has also moved into this room.

Closet

The closet area is shared by both kids and includes their capsule wardrobes. We fold KonMari (ish) style to make it easier for the kids to grab items from their bins. This works well in keeping it organized and accessible for the kids. The dressing chair is a nice spot to sit and get dressed when needed.

And, that's it! I hope it was helpful to see a shared bedroom in our Montessori home. We try to prioritize accessibility, order, and independence in the space.
