Boy/girl twins sharing bed?

Currently my b/g twins are sharing a room and sleep in separate cribs (they will be 2 on May 9). When they switch to beds I was wondering if I should try to transition them together in the same bed in the hope that they'd keep each other company and not want to climb out of bed all the time. Has anyone done this? Suggestions?

OK. I haven't done this, but here are some of my ideas for making the transition-in no particular order.
1) If their cribs can be made into toddler beds (1 side rail off with the mattress as low as possible) that would be an economical way to see if they would stay in their separate beds.
2) Put their crib mattresses on the floor separately and see how that goes.
3) Put their crib mattresses on the floor snuggled up (think mini-king bed) together so that they are in the "same" bed and see how that goes.
Maybe once you figure out how they will sleep best then you can get either a set of twins or a single bed?
Just some ideas.
