Toddler and Teen Shared Room - is it Possible?

Living in a three bedroom house, we've always known that extending our family would mean there was a possibility of Aria and Maya sharing a room, as we can't exactly have either sharing with a baby that wakes several times a night!

Now before you think you've missed some big announcement, don't worry, you haven't! I'm not pregnant, but the idea of the girls sharing a room one day is always in the back on my mind. 

I constantly wonder about how a teen and toddler can share a room happily. Maya only stays with us on a weekend but as a typical teen, she is going to want her privacy when staying with us. And Aria, she will like her room to be filled with toys and all things fun and playful. 

Not only that, but I can imagine Aria finding it impossible to sleep when she could be pulling all-nighters playing with her big sister. 

So, with all these thoughts and questions, I've been spending many and evening searching Pintetest for ideas that will suit both their styles and needs... 

I've been going a bit Pinterest daft recently, as you will no doubt notice, but there are so many creative ideas there that I would never have thought of, especially for home d├ęcor!

As you can see, I've been looking as a mixture of pull out and bunk beds, and trying to find a theme that will suit both their styles - I seem to be naturally drawn to dusky pinks and metallics, but that could all change again the next couple of years I suppose!


Do you have any experience of kids sharing a room when there is a large age gap? I'd love to hear any advice you may have, or some new pictures for my Pinterest board!
