We have 4 kids with another on the way we have 4x2 with 2 living spaces
Dd1&dd2 share (always have) dss has own room he is 16 (he will never have to share a room) and dd3 has a room but it's not being used by her as she is still in our room.
If baby 5 is a boy dd3& he will share and once it becomes a problem (once they are older) chances are dss will have moved out so dd3 & baby can have own room or if baby 5 is a girl dd3 & her would share and dd1 & dd2 would have own ( once dss has left. So our house is bigger enough and we have a good size yard

We have 4 kids in a 3 bedroom house we have ds2 and 3 sharing and ds1 and 4 sharing. Not ideal but it works. They have a massive cubby house out back and lots of living space.

I have 4 kids and sharing hasn't been successful for us. DD1 moved her bedroom into the study, DD2 sleeps on a day bed in the playroom, DS1 has his own room as does DD3 (still in a cot)
I think if the rooms are large enough it's fine but my 2 older girls really need space after a day at school and having their own rooms is the only way they get that space. We're moving into a bigger house next year. We have a large area outside but I hate living with everyone on top of each other.
