We're doing this now. We are moving into a house that is half the size of our last one. We have three children and are now in a three bedroom. Lots of purging, anything that hasn't been used in a year is gone. Its actually vdr liberating. T
Our two boys are sharing a room and we make sure to give them their own alone time on the room each day.

Put 2 kids in each bedroom.  If 3  are the same sex   get  a bunk and a twin  for the 3  and the one   of a sex  gets their own  room.    If there is a hall closet  the  one  of the three  gets  it.    Make  sure  everyone  knows   when  someone  is going  to take a shower.  Because   there are  so many  kids and only  one  bathroom,  baths  need to  be taken  the night  before.  They  can  dampen  the hair  in the am  if they need to.

We had a family of 8 in a 4 bedroom. The 2 boys shared a room, the oldest & youngest girls shared a room (15 & 1) because the other 2 girls wouldn't leave the baby alone. The baby was moved in with the oldest when she began to sleep thru the night. I tried to make sure that each kid had their own space in the rooms. The 2 middle girls got a fairly big room and all the toys were in there so the youngest 4 could have a play area without getting into the oldest ones things. It worked out well for us. When we moved into a 5 bedroom it was strange to have the extra room. So we were opposite of you.
