If they are happy, I wouldn't mess with it.
However I would add if they don't keep their room clean there will be a change.

I would approach it again when they have had some time to think about it and just point out the positives. Maybe they will want to move and maybe not. In the mean time, I would tell DD that she is expected to deal with her clothes and not just toss them into the corner. She doesn't want to move, that is fine, but she needs to take care of the space if it is that important to her. Otherwise they will move anyway so she doesn't the difficulties of not having a closet to use. This puts it on her (although she may not see it that way)

I would not move them if they are happy. Once your oldest goes to college then you could do a big rearrangement.

I needed to move 5yo ds so the nursery/office is in the larger room. He didn't want to but he was happy when it was switched. Depends on the kid though!

Re: wwyd for kids room arrangement?

What about letting them be involved in how the room is set up? Is painting the rooms in the budget? That might motivate them to pick the colour. I'd probably do what I thought is best thinking the kids don't really know what they want lol

I'd be tempted to change the rooms. It makes so much sense. There must be a way to get the children on board. I hated change as a kid and liked "different" things. I could totally picture myself deciding I didn't like closets. I would have been upset had my mom switched my room. I really get that this is quite the dilemma.
