The new house has three bedrooms. Two doubles and a third which would actually fit a double bed in it but we'll call it a single.
I am pondering putting the children's beds together as a bunk bed in the smallest bedroom and then using the middle bedroom as a playroom/office. Or getting the children to share the middle bedroom and using the smallest bedroom as an office. Or shall I just have one child per bedroom?

I think them sharing is a great idea to give you another room as a playroom. They will probably be excited to be sharing a room in their new home. It will also be comforting for them both. When do you move?
Do they share just now? What's the age gap? Do they play together now?
I'm totally on the fence with playrooms, I think I wouldn't want the kids away playing in a separate room, but at same time, not falling over toys is sooo appealing. And I think just having one child at the moment may cloud my judgment - two or more playing together us different to one kid playing alone.

They aren't sharing at the moment, but most nights both end up in bed with me, so am hoping if they share a room I might get more peace! There is a two and a half year age gap between them, although U insists she is older than B (he is five and she tells people she is six). Depending on tiredness levels they usually play beautifully together. I don't like children playing in their bedrooms as I think it should be somewhere they go to sleep but room downstairs is very small so it would probably some where we all spend time (me working at the desk for example) whilst they play, although again that might be exceptionally naive of me!

Sounds like them sharing small room with a playroom/office is ideal then
