twins in separate bedrooms?

My logic would be give the oldest the bigger room but as they're twins might not be as easy but then I think it doesn't really matter. Just include them and make it exciting for them and they won't care about size. When they're older say teenage years let them debate between themselves whether to swap.

thanks for your replies- I think that we will probably go for separate rooms. Now just to decide what to do aboyt who gets which bedroom!

We separated our when they were 2. They are now 6 and really like having there own bedrooms. I have a boy and a girl and even now they occasionally wake in the night and it means you can be firmer with them without worrying that they will wake the other.

We separated our b g twins at about age two. They disturbed each other! Like you have a double room and box room for them... Decided to give boy the big room for now and the girl the smaller, then when teenagers we'll swap them or when we move house.... Thought girl would appreciate bigger room later in life? Can't think of reasons behind that logic?
.? Both play in each others rooms now, they are 7.

We used a travel cot in our room, transferred one of them in to it if they were disturbing each other or getting up to no good at bed time.
We just transfer the in to their own bed when we go up.
We have the same issue with rooms and didn't want one of them to have the big room.

I just wondered at what age others hsve put their twins in separate rooms? My b/g twins are 2.3 years and often disturb each other at bed time or if one is tired and the other is fighting sleep, they'll try and engage their partner in crime (to cause trouble, or so it seems!)

I just feel a bit unsure, and they are both very clingy with me at night so
also concerned if it makes things more difficult. We also have 2 double rooms and 1 box room, so not sure what we would do about that!
