    Default Sharing rooms help?

    We live in a 3 bedroom house with 3 kids. Currently dd1 (9yrs) and ds (6yrs) share a room. We have dd2 (16mths) in a room alone and obviously we have the 3rd room. Seeming my dd1 is almost 10 I wanna move her away from her brother. I don't know if it would be better to put dd1 and dd2 together or ds and dd2 together! Any suggestions? I really want a 4 bedroom house but that's not going to happen in the near future!

    Yep, I'd give the eldest her own room and have the younger two together.

    2 girls together would be my preference but because of the gap (upcoming teen!), I would put your DS and youngest DD together.

    I have 2 boys and a girl who all share a room. I always thought that when I got a bigger house, I would put the 2 boys together (the oldest and youngest kids) and my DD seperate. But now that they are getting older and showing their personalities, there is NO way I would keep my boys together any longer than I have to lol. I would rather put my DD and DS2 together.

    So my answer is to put together the two that get along the most, regardless of gender!

    We have a 3 bedroom house and 5 kids...currently the 2 older boys aged 13 and 9 are in together and the 2 girls aged 2 and 11. Baby is in our room and is a boy so we have to extend or buy a bigger house but it's not possible for at least 2 years. Because we had boy girl boy girl boy there is big gaps between siblings of same gender sharing. I'll share our girls room arrangement in case that's the way you decide to go..... For my girls I have bunks with the under bunk drawers. Everything in the bed drawers is the 2 yr olds toys and nappies. There is a chest of drawers also in the room which house all the 2 year olds clothes, shoes and blankets. Linen etc is coral and aqua patterns without characters etc so that it is pretty but not childish for a tween. For my older girl aged 11, she has all the built in wardrobes (2 sections) for all her clothes, stationary, books and anything she doesn't want touched.
    This way the room is kept simple and my eldest daughter could have friends over for example and it wouldn't look like she is sharing with a toddler. Also if the wardrobe doors are shut all precious things are keep away from a toddlers hands! 😄
    My toddler doesn't tend to play in the room, we really just use it for her sleeping and storage because she is young this is no issue. Hope that give some idea on how it can be done 😊

    I would also put the two youngest together. Your older Dd needs some space for her own when she reches puberty.
