Currently our 3 girls all share a room but our youngest actually sleeps in our room. Their room is quite large so there's plenty of space up there for all their stuff and it works out pretty well. Now that we're having a little boy, I'm wondering how we'll set things up as they get older. He'll be rooming with us for the foreseeable future and our youngest daughter will completely move up with her sisters. At some point though, I would like to regain complete use of *my* bedroom lol.
Our house is really old and even though there are 3 bedrooms, one is more like a storage room and since it's part of what was once an attic, the ceiling is sloped so there is nowhere to put a bookcase or anything like that. We rent, so we'll probably live here for a few more years and then hopefully be able to buy something with more useable space.
At some point, I'd like to give my oldest her own room (she just turned 13) and it's likely the littlest two or possibly three (my now 8 & 4 year olds and the new baby) will share.
So, how do you have your kids spaces set up? Do they share? Have you had experience with boys and girls sharing a room? Just wondering what's working for other families since it's something we've never had to think about before!
