I had a friend at high school who shared a double bed with her sister when they were 16 & 18. They weren't allowed boyfriends to stay so was never an issue for them! That was because they didn't have space for 2 beds and ceilings were too low for bunk beds.

Shove the single beds together?

Oh yes truckle bed - we got one from Bowen - think it'd be useful for sleepovers later on. I think some you can convert later into bunk beds.

I think you'd be better sticking with 2 singles, and letting them share a single.
If I can share a single with a 4 yr old, I'm sure a 2 yr old can!

No. Mine share a room and sleep together 99% of the time. They have bunk beds but are often on the top bunk together.

There's the odd day when they decide they despise each other, those are the days we are thankful for bunk beds.

Dd2's first bed was bottom bunk. I'd think a bunk bed will be fine, just get one with high sides. We converted ours as the sides on top bunk were quite low, so my carpenter dad added some new higher ones.

well for now they are too young,but you can get a drawer type bed that pulls out

i honestly think learning to sleep alone is a good,basic skill to teach kids
