Not sure what you mean by relatively modern. My kids are in their late 20s-early 30s, and most of their contemporaries had their own rooms. We did not live with what you describe. ISTR some parents talking about their kids not keeping their rooms clean. I never understood that. My kids didn't have the choice. And they were not allowed to take food to their rooms.

Each parent is relatively free to fuck up their kids how they wish!
I used to be disgusted.
Now I try to be amused.
