Do Shared Toddler/Baby Rooms Work?

Good Questions

Q: I've seen a number of shared kids' bedrooms on Apartment Therapy that are designed for a toddler and a baby. I'm curious how well this actually works out, particularly in terms of naps/sleep. Is it really feasible, or does the baby or toddler just end up spending half the night sleeping in the parents' bed? Or does everyone just sleep less as they tag-team each other awake? I'd love to hear how people have made this work, as it seems like a good solution for families in small spaces.
