    Well it's done! Two beds in one room, kids are super happy.... I keep telling hubby we could be living in a two bedroom apartment in the city instead of a 4 bedroom house in the subs lol

    Our kids share a room. They've been sharing for years - they're now 7 and nearly 10 (DD and DS). It's just for sleeping, all of DS's stuff is in his room (where he doesn't sleep) and DD's stuff in her room. They just both love the company and we're rolling with it for as long as they are happy.

    My 3 share a room, they are 7, 4 and 1. No one has shown any interest in having their own room yet. We are in a 3 bedroom house, so can now use the extra bedroom as a toy/ guest room. They don't wake each other up, but the 1yo and 4yo often end up in my bed anyway.

    I shared a room with 2 sisters when I was younger. I was 12, L was 9 and M was 4 when we finally moved to a new house and got our own rooms.

    My two eldest daughters shared a room for 7 years. They are 9 and 11 and now have their own rooms however DD2 still hops into her sister's bed sometimes....if you want them to, go for it!

    Subbing. We're moving overseas into a much smaller place next year, and will hopefully have a second bub by then.

    I think if it's working for them both then yes put them in the same room turn the other into a play room etc.
    We have a 3bedroom house and 4 kids so we have the older boys in one room and the younger boys in the other works great

    Mine share on and off, the love the idea of it but after a week it seems to wear thin. DS is a light sleeper and DD complains that he wakes her and then she's all tired and grumpy. DS wants the company but then says he's sick of her. They are 9 and 6. We've given up putting them in together, the constant yes and no of sharing by them drove me nuts.

    Ds's aged 8 and 5 have shared a room since ds3 arrived nearly 2 years ago and it's worked well. Once ds3 transitions to a big bed the 3 boys will be in 1 room and the spare room will be their play room.

    My four step kids share one room when they visit every fortnight as we are in a two bedroom apartment. The mum was threatening to move interstate with them so we didn't bother getting a bigger place at the time. Now we are stuck in the middle of a 12 mth lease but looking to upsize. Then will likely be 2 and 2 sharing.
    Ttc at the moment.. but we'll cross that bridge when it comes ha!
