baby sleeping arrangements

Hello to all the lovely moms who took the time to write about their experiences in the baby sleep dilemma. There were many great tips and pointers with all things considered and it definitely helped me make a decision.
I decided to have the baby sleep in our room, in a crib for at least 6 months then move the crib to a separate room. My only dilemma is that in our house the extra room is downstairs, next to the older step sisiter's rooms . What am I supposed to do when the first 6 months pass? Do I move our little girl downstairs, install a monitor and hope that we can hear her? Do I continue to have her sleep in our room with a divider screen? We're not ready to move to a more suitable house where she'll have her own room but it is on the agenda in two years or so.
I gather that I can't predict what's to come when the baby arrives but what would you do in a our scenario.
Any and all advice welcome.
First time mommy,

Take it one step at a time. See how you feel when your baby is six months old.

We took things one day at a time and kept our kids in the same room with us for a lot longer than six months. Change rooms or put up a screen when you feel it's right, not because you got to some magic date.

Could one of your step daughters move upstairs so you and your husband could sleep in the room next to the baby?
