I'm curious, because we have a one-bedroom apartment for the three of us!<br>
Everyone keeps telling us we'll need to move soon, and with the steal our rent is and the fact that we're all in the same room anyway, I don't see the need! Plenty of room to play in the apartment, even for a toddler! I just tell them that after sharing my body with ds for 9 months, our "little" one bedroom apartment feels roomy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br><br>
Thanks for voting!

WE have a 3 bedroom house for 5 soon to be six people.<br><br>
We don't use the third bedroom except for storage and guests.<br><br>
We have a large room upstairs that used as a playroom so IMO that really helps us not need a 3rd bedroom.

We have three regular bedrooms upstairs and a fourth in the basement that is actually kinda' creepy but has been used as a bedroom for years. This is for me, DH, and 11 m.o. DD. It's quite ridiculous. One of the spares is a napping/nursing space with DD's clothes, a crib, and a twin mattress, the other spare is set up as an office and sewing space and has a closet full of baby carriers.<br><br>
We have such a large house bc it belonged to DH's grandparents for the past forty years and now we're renting it from his parents. We love the house and will grow into it.<br><br>
I wish we could share the space with someone, but with bad roommate issues in the past and the definitely single-family layout of the space (one bathroom, must go into hall to use it), we're just gonna deal with the higher utility bills and greater housework demands as a trade-off for pretty low rent and family heritage.

In our house we have 3 bedrooms upstairs, and a large rec room downstairs that we are thinking about (someday) putting in a Murphy bed so that we can accommodate guests.

We have a 3 bedroom currently, but we also use our garage as a bedroom of sorts. We've got teenagers that definitely want their own rooms so it's a must for us. In your position I'd stay right where I was! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

We have 3 but only use two as a bedroom, the other is the office room and someday when we finish unpacking my sewing table is in there too.

We live in a 3 bedroom house, but that's for 5 adults and one child.<br>
If it was just dh, dd and I, we would probably live in a studio or 1 bedroom, especially with how much dh is going to be gone with his new job (truck driving).

Our hosue is technically 2 bedrooms but there is also an office and a rec room so I checked 4 bedrooms.<br><br>
DH and I sleep in the rec room, the littlest one sleeps in the adjoining office, the big one has a bedroom and we use the master bedroom for a lovely playroom.

We have 3. One for my mom, one for me, and one for dd. (I didn't plan to cosleep until she was born, and by now, she's in her room for the entire night almost every night.)<br><br>
There's also an "area" in our basement where my brother and his gf stay when they come. It's not a legal bedroom though.

We have four proper bedrooms and a den. The den is the kids' hangout (with their computer and stuff), and one of the bedrooms has mine and DP's computer, a TV for gaming, and a bunch of DP's collectibles and bookshelves.

Technically two, but really three (septic hasn't been tested for capacity to legally qualify as a 3-bedroom.) Two adults, two babies.<br><br>
I like having DS in a separate bedroom (with all of his TOYS!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> and my daughter will probably move out of our bedroom and in with her brother this month. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Now DH is making noises about having another baby!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: I guess we'd have space.... Now, do I have patience? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

We have a 2 bedroom apartment for the 3 of us. DD has her own room, but she sleeps with us. Her room has a toybox/crib, a dresser, rocking chair, lots of porcelin dolls, and a closet full of clothes.<br><br>
I like have the second bedroom, even though she doesnt really use it and probably wont for some time yet. I like having a place to put all of her clothes and toys that she isnt playing with yet. The main room definitely isnt big enough for all of her stuff and ours.

Four bedrooms, Four people. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: We live in a big old (150+ year old) house. We could make do with less room for our family, but we got the house for a steal, and because we rent part of it out it makes total sense financially for us to enjoy the room we have.

We are buying a 4br apartment for the 5 of us (plus G/d willing any more <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">).<br><br>
One bedroom for us, one for the 3 girls, one for a playroom (biggest room) and the smallest room as a TV / guest / computer room. Eventually we will prob. use 2 of the br for kids, but at this point our 3 can sleep together.
