My 7 yo DD and 4 yo DD share a room and they hate it. It started off ok but now they fight constantly. DD1's biggest complaint is she has no privacy and after a day at school just wants to chill on her own but she finds it hard as her sister is in the same space (we have other rooms they can go to but it's not the same).
Over the weekend we're looking at moving DD1 into DS1's room so DD2 and DS1 will share. It means DD2 is on the top bunk. Hope she doesn't fall out

Mine are in separate rooms now, but they used to share a room in our last house. I think they slept better when they shared a room, but the rooms in this house are tiny
Ttc #3 now though so bub will have to share with one of them. Will probably put the youngest two together.

I have my 3 yo DS and 6 yo DS sharing and my 8 yo DD and 11 yo DD sharing and it works fine. I stagger their bed times to avoid chatting. My 11 yo is starting to want her own space but we are trying to sell our house to build our 6 bedroom dream house.

We will be getting bunk beds for Xmas for the boys this year, as they will be moving into their own room by DS2's next birthday. We are hoping anyway. I am both excited and hoping it works.

Our 4 older kids share a room. They are girl aged 7, boy 5, girl 5, boy 3. It works fine and even though we have other rooms they want to be together <3

I shared a room from when my sister was born (i was 2) until I was 12 - and at that point I was sharing with 2 sisters. Meg and Lauren had bunk beds and I had a fold out bed that we just folded back during the day. There were 6 of us in a 2 bed 1 bath and we managed just fine. My kids will be sharing rooms.

We have a 5yr old boy and 3yr old girl sharing and it works well. We only put them in together recently and they love the company. They have different bed times and we lay with each if them while they go to sleep, but if the DD wakes up DS will often say, it's ok I'm here and she goes back to sleep.

We tried room sharing a few years ago when DD was 5 and DS1 was 3 but it didn't work very well at all mainly because DD is very highly strung and DS1 is so relaxed and they clashed over mess and lots of little things. I think as long as personality wise the children a little compatible it works but with us there was zero compatibility.

We used to have our two dds share and they are four yrs apart.... This didn't work as they'd fight all the time. Then I put dd in with ds who is 19mths younger than her and this worked most as they are close, play together and have the same bedtime.
They each have their own room atm but soon our youngest dd (2) will share with ds (7).
