View Full Version : kids sharing rooms
do any of your kids share rooms?
My 2 sons share. both in single beds as there is ceiling fans and i feel Lukes still too young to be on a top bunk.
Our 2 eldest boys share and they always have. They have bunks but Toby is 9, so we are comfortable with that....it gives them more floor space. DD has her own room as does bubby. If we have another girl, she will share with DD, if we have another boy, he will go in with ds3 although his room is pretty small and they would both be too young for bunks.....hmmm, a girl would be more practical for us at this point :D
Well yes we do. Long story made short. We are all living in a double garage while we build. So all of us share the one room which is also the kitchen/lounge. The bathroom and toilet are wall of off.
In the new house they will all have there own rooms. Even if i have another i will convert the playroom back into a bedroom. That is if we ever get it finished.:o It been three Christmas so far.:hair:
The house before this the three girls shared, before that two did.
Yes our 2 boys share a room, 2 single beds......in a perfect world it would be nice for them to have their own rooms but they enjoy being together........not too sure how it will be as they become older teenages
My 2 girls share a room. They used to have 2 single beds but their room is very small. About 3 months ago i bought a bunk bed for them. My DD who is 5 1/2 sleeps on top and DD who is 3 sleeps down the bottom. It is a bunk bed with a double bed on the bottom so when my younger daughter wakes, we can lay next to her when needed.
i used to have to sleep on their bedroom floor on a mattress pulled out to help her sleep in her bed but things are slowing getting better.
A strict rule was set up as soon as the bunk was put up, only my older DD is allowed up in her bed and it's not for playing, just for sleeping, so far, it hasn't even really been a novelty and no one really tries to climb it. Much more room in their bedroom now for their toys etc.
My 2 girls share with no worries, they have single beds.
DS1 shares with DS2. They had bunks but even with the ladder off DS2 would climb up.He fell off & I freaked,so even though its pokey they are in singles.
Bub is still in with us.
My parents live here & take up 2 bedrooms,but we are building them a granny flat so we can have our house back:smiliedance:. Even then the girls will still share,the two little boys will share,DS1 will have his own room (he's getting to an age where he really needs it;)) & the other room will be a TV/kids retreat.When the girls are older if they want their own rooms,one of them can have the retreat.
Up until recently the sharing was working well,but like I mentioned,DS1 has finally been asking for his own room.
Hi, We have 7 children (the eldest is almost 16) and the 8th is due in 6 weeks. Our older 3 all have a room each, child number 4 and 5 share a room with bunk beds. It is a big room and there is also a single bed in there for child number 6 although I could count the number of times on one hand he has slept in there as he still sleeps with us most of the time! We also have a big play room so most of the toys are in there and their bedrooms are generally just beds and wardrobes. Child no 7 is in a cot (or in bed with us) and his cot in in our bedroom - once again we are lucky to have a huge main bedroom. Child no 8 will be in the bassinet in our bedroom for a while and then into the cot. Then child no 7 will go in with the other three boys with another set of bunks!
Does that all make sense - I got a little confused myself while typing away. I think I covered everybody!
we have just moved into a 4 bedroom house, so before that i had 2 kids in one room and 3 in the other and the roms were very small, my dd 8 shared with ds 1, then my ds 6 shared with his two sisters 3 and 4.
Now dd 8 has a room to her self and we have a boys room with ds 6 on top bunk, bottom bunk is free atm, and ds 1 is in his cot, will be replacing it with a single bed soon, the girls room which was the old master room before the add on so a decient size, have dd 3 and 4, and have single beds in them atm, but we are up grading to bunks, so in total will have enough sleeping space for 8 kids, even though we only have 5 atm.
non of our kids rooms have ceiling fans, so i dont have to worry about their lil heads being chopped off when they get out of bed, lol
Sorry to hijack as I only have 2 kids, but both of mine share a room and it seems to work well for our family and I'm sure if our family were bigger, it would be no different.
had to reply even though i only have one bub.
i hate hate hate hate hate when people say children need their own space.. referring to sharing bedrooms. i shared a room my whole life. at times with 3-4 other kids. my partner grew up in a 2.5 bed house with 7 people. he slept in a bunk bed. not very romantic when we started going out :laughing::laughing::laughing:
sorry it just really annoys me when people subject other parents to their own values.. not everyone needs a big house or lots of private space..and unless you are raised that way you don't worry about privacy etc etc. you find it your own ways..
next baby and our kids will be sharing a room :yes:
my 2 boys share. they have two separate beds. their bedrooms don't have any toys, only a tall boy so space in not an issue. we have a toy room that is attached to the lounge so that i can supervise them at all times. its not as though they are not allowed to be in their room, we have just trained them from the beginning to hang out in the lounge and toy room.
My eldest 2 kids share a room, DS is almost 7 & DD just turned 4. They have been sharing for about 8mths now and other than a huge disaster zone most afternoons that they take forever to clean up, we've had no probs at all. We have some really great bunk beds, the bottom bunk is not attached to the top at all so we have them set up in a 'L' shape, DS feels a bit safer with the bottom bunk like that (there is a safetly rail on the top too tho). We also have DD's bedside table (with her barbies in the top drawer lol) and her toy box beside her bed, under the top bunk. The top bunk is also alot lower than most, which I think is great :thumbsup:
We would love for them to all have their own room, but right now we are not in a position to move house so for now they will continue to share. I guess if we are still in a 3bedroom house a few years down the track then I might swap the kids around and have DD share with DS2...and eventually I'd probably put the 2 boys in a room together once DD is a teenager, but that's a long way off for us :)
My kids want to share a room, when I said we might look at moving to a house with more bedrooms the older two both said 'yay! then we can have a room for our bunk bed and a spare room for the toys' LOL
My kids all share rooms. We have 4 bedrooms, 1 is ours.
DS1 and DS2 have shared since DS2 was born, they are in single beds.
DS3 and DS4 have shared from around the time that DS4 was about 6 months.
I have a stepdaughter who comes on school holidays and she is on her own in the last room atm, but this last baby is a girl, so the two girls will share :)
My kids share. While renovating they shared with us. Now we have our own room. We have the room for them to have their own, but I prefer having a guest room and a study. They have plenty of room in there and their bedroom is only for sleeping. They play outside or in the rumpus. I intend for them to always share. With a study and rumpus, I don't see the need for seperate bedrooms.
we have a 5 bedroom house so the girls both have their own rooms.
the two older boys share what use to be the main bedroom before we renovated downstairs an added two bedrooms, one for us an one for the baby. when the baby gets older we would like to send him upstairs to the boys room and have a second lounge room downstairs free of kids stuff
We have 5 bedrooms but the two older boys prefer to share. They are 8 and 5 and love having the company of each other at bed time.
Who knows...they may not feel that way forever but for the moment it's working brilliantly and they love each other's company.
my three eldest boys share a room, 2 on bunks, one on a king single, plus they have two computer desks in there (have nowhere else in the house to put them) They have a ceiling fan in there which they dont use, as we put a split system in there coz of the computers
the twins share, they have two single beds, can be put into bunks, but because theirs a ceiling fan in there, no way!! they cant be trusted, its even scary enough when they insist on jumping from one bed to the other. (next summer we wil have ducted evap, and the fan will go!!!)
then DD, has a room to herself, she wants a sister to share with, but it aint happening!!
when DS1 ever gets himself a gf, well, the two other boys will go into a room with the twins, all on bunks, I mean he's nearly 18 and sharing with his brothers.. he hasnt complaned once!!
in a perfect world, we would build two beds (three would be better still!!) and bathroom with small sitting area and room for fridge, small sink and a little bench space to make a sandwhich for the two elder ones... possible three. but thats still a couple years off yet. (plenty room to do that, just no cash lol)
