We just moved recently and put our boys in a room together and gave them a playroom, they LOVE it. I have no toys in their room, just a bookshelf and their dressers. AMAZING. lol. Best decision of my life I think.

Oh and they're 3 and 5. We will be buying a house probably next year late in the year sometime at which point they probably won't share but we have no definite plans and I'm not thinking about it. They have bunk beds and they love sharing a room.

my boys never had their own rooms per say. My oldest did, while my youngest was still in our room but besides that never. I do think bed time is a pain in the ass with both in one room. Seriously they keep each other awake and have since they've shared a room. My boys are 5 (next month) and 3.5

This is exactly what we did for the kids!! So much better IMO. That way they go straight to bed and aren't tempted with playing with their toys.



Son and daughter share my daughters room and we turned his into there play room. No more toys in the living room other than their colouring tables so I can make sure no drawing on walls happens lol.



I'll take pics ... Hold on a sec.

I'd do it. Anything to keep toy crap out of the common areas. I don't allow toys in the living room at all ever and it's been a great rule.

see, that looks like it contains the mess nicely. I'm just sick of them dragging their toys from the downstairs playroom up to our living room

Haha around here too.



I'd def put the youngest to bed first after the move and once their asleep put the oldest down for bed.




Or if youngest is very clingy and would have issues with the change. Put your oldest to bed first and then make a big deal about it for the youngest.. If they are like my son and copy everything his sister does lol. "Ooh!! Look! See ----- likes the new room. Soo cozy and comfy. A very nice place to go sleep.."



That may work too. It all depends on how your children are :)



Good luck.



But definitely better for de cluttering.
