After my husband and I had been together for a number of weeks, and albeit the high passion we have for each other, it became clear that we had two choices: sleeping in the same bed and being dead tired all the time, or finding another sleeping arrangement. He is 6ft6, snores loudly and is in the habit, while asleep, of wrapping himself cocoon-like in all of the bed sheets (including the duvet). He also likes creative clutter, whereas I am very neat and like to keep it that way. So when we decided to move in together, we saw potential in renovating the basement which was not used to its full potential, and we built this kind of open space hotel suite, with our two beds separated only by our closet and added our own bathroom (we have 3 kids between the both of us). Result: we make a point of spending time together in each other's bed almost every night, but we sleep soundly and are not constantly bickering about sleeping habits or neatness. And its fun to "visit" our better half's space !
