Do you have step kids sharing a room with your bio kids from a different dad? So non-blood related kids sharing a room?

I don't have any biochildren yet, but when I was a child and had a stepsister we shared a room for a few years. It wasn't a big deal.

Thank you to Babydoll213 for my fabulous siggie!

It's not about step or bio here. We have bedrooms.
3 girls and 2 boys.
They share a room.

Ss19 has his own room
Ds10 has his own room.

Jade is our baby and is 7 months. She's is in our room.

Sd9 is here through summer and all schoo holidays and various weekends. She has a top bunk and drawers for her clothes. But brings her stuff back and forth. (clothes and toys)

We look more at gender and age for sharing rooms and it's not practical for boys to share w girls especially at the ages we have.

It depends on how the kids get along, and the ages. My daughter and my SD wouldn't share a room very well because of their age difference.

We have custody of my step sons and one of them shares a room with our son. Same dad, different mom. We each have two from previous marriages, but there was such an age difference that one of his sharing a room with one of mine was not an option.

We have all girls. My oldest is my SD and she shares bunkbeds with Julie. We lived together for a year and a half before they roomed together. Mainly because (SD) Chloe went from being an only child for 6 years to suddenly having two other little girls here. So we wanted her to keep her space for as long as she needed it. By their second Christmas together they were begging for bunkbeds

right now when the kids visit they have their own room together.. they have separate beds but they still sleep together anyway, when we buy a house we will look for a 4 bedroom so each child can have their own room, since Kayley is 4 1/2 years older than Audrey.

When dsd visits, she sleeps in my dd's room. They are not biologically related.

We have two bedrooms. One is ours, one is currently Reme's. But he's been told already when we have a baby if we still live here he WILL have to share his room with the baby regardless of gender. By the time baby goes into the room that isn't ours we'd be out of here anyway, it would mostly just be clothing he would share with.

He will however in the future have his room also be the guest room (since baby's room won't have a bed in it for quite a while), he'd have to sleep in with us if we had any company (which considering my family lives 2000 miles away, is unlikely).

The boys share. Biologically, Sean is mine and Robert is Jonah's, but we tell the kids there are no steps in our house except the ones going in and out of the house. Dani is biologically mine, but she has her own room because she is the only girl. Dani and Sean have different bio-fathers. There is almost a 3 yr age difference between Sean and Robert, almost 4 between Robert and Dani and almost 7 between Sean and Dani. Sean is 15, Robert 13 and Dani 9.

Thank you JMC1988 for my siggy!

My stepson and older bison share a room together. They have no blood relation. They are 4 years apart. Sometimes they love sharing a room and sometimes they hate it. My teen stepdaughter gets her own room because she is the only girl. Baby has his own room and hubby and I have our room. Doesn't make sense any other way. Baby is too small to be in a room with ss who is almost 10 and definitely too small to share a room with my teen son. SD can't share a room with my SS because she is too old to share with a boy.

The boys have shared a room for years. They both have the same Bio mom and dad But they always ended up in the same room so we put them both in there. DD has her own room not that she uses it any and DSS1 (21) has his own room downstairs. He is in the process of moving out so when he does DSS2 will move into his room. So then all the kids will have their own room.
