Sleeping Arrangements in a Poly Home

I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this, but if not, let me know and I'll move it to the correct location :)

​I am interested in the sleeping/living arrangements of other poly families. In our family, we are 2 distinct couples (husband and wife 1, husband and wife 2) so we do not share a bed or even a room (well... I'll get to that in a second). We are currently living in a small-ish 2 bedroom apartment, but we have tried as best as we can to create our own personal spaces. The best solution we've worked out so far is that Thomas has his own room with a large bed while Sam and I share a room with 2 single beds and we both have our own sides of the room that are very distinct to our tastes. We've found that this works out really well for all of us because we rotate who sleeps in Thomas' room every few nights which means that Sam and I very seldom end up sleeping in our room together and the space ends up being ours alone for the nights we're in there (apart from in the mornings when we need to go into our room to get our clothes and get ready).
​The trouble will come when children start entering the family (which we're hoping 2017 will be the year).

​Anywho, I'm getting off topic. What are the sleeping/living arrangements like for your family and if you have children how have you adjusted with less space?

​Thank you in advance, I can't wait to hear from you!

Hi there! I have to say, I am so glad to see another plural family on the forum. Welcome!

Okay, getting to the topic at hand... In our family, we have our own bedrooms. Most nights it's husband + wife 1, wife 2, or wife 3. He is the one who rotates, although we always say he has 1.5 bedrooms since he has a share in each of ours. :P

Then we have two bedrooms allotted to children when they come. We are also hoping that 2017 will be the year. :)

In terms of space, we have a lot of space between our bedrooms. We find this works out the best for us because we have more privacy with our husband.

For kids, wife 2 has her room right in between the kid's bedrooms, and I (wife 3) have my room just a short walk from the kid's bedrooms. So we will always be readily available for them.
