Our king, a cosleeper and our night stands will fit just fine in that room and the closets in each room are identical so we're not losing space there. Neither has an attached bathroom.
By making the larger room the kid area I can move all of the kid stuff spread throughout the house into there and regain some of my spaces back! It's proving to be a lot of work right now as I'm also going through everything to sort out stuff for donating/trash but I'm going to feel much much better when it's all done.
Besides, I get the urge to move all the time so moving bedrooms should help me feel better in that dept. It'll be like a whole new house or something. ;)
firespiritymelody - It definitely feels good to get it all done but my body just is wrecked afterwards. I was super sore waking up this morning.
Ah. I have no idea what size our house is. It's a three bedroom, but two of the bedrooms are *tiny* In DD's room, there's not enough room even for a twin bed, with out blocking doors or the register. There's a door to the bathroom between her room and ours in her room, and since I try to encourage her and DS to use the other bathroom, I put her bed in front of the bathroom door. If the baby turns out to be a girl, her and DS will be switching rooms when baby goes to a separate room.
I just wish there was enough room for them to play in their rooms, and to store their toys in their rooms. Since they have a lot of common toys (legos, books, things like that), I'm not sure where to put them/what to do with them, since we try to keep a "no boys in girls' rooms, no girls in boys' rooms" rule.
I get that urge, too, but for me, at least, it's to move to different regions. Since I met DF, we have lived in SC, AL, TN, and IN. We were supposed to move out west, to AZ, but it didn't pan out.
