Join the two beds and don’t place anything in between. They’ll still be two individual units but they’ll look like one. The shape of the headboards makes these two stand out and the sunburst mirror is beautifully centered there.

If you want to unify the two beds without actually placing them side by side here’s another idea: they can share the same headboard. Although there’s a void in between where the nightstand is placed, the headboard connects the two beds.

A very practical idea would be to integrate the twin beds into a wall unit. By making them fold-down beds, they can stay hidden during the day and free up floor space for other activities.

In a room where two twin beds are the only things that can fit, there’s not much space for anything else. Choose light colors and try to make the room seem as bright as possible. Don’t overwhelm it with accessories.
