I have a 1920s Craftsman-style home and one of the bedrooms is only big enough for a single bed and a dresser. They were built that way then - probably for a nursery. In my house it's a walk-in closet, now, which is A-OK with me. I also knew a friend in NYC who lived in a small apartment and there was some kind of closet that was HER space. It had room for a desk or something. I think she slept in the living room. I think what you want to do is fine, assuming it is what your boys want. They may be content with a shared sleeping space, but other areas that are just theirs - desk, loft, private closet, whatever. I think people in the US are used to much larger and private spaces.
