My 12 year old loves listening to music. He very often asks to change the music (that's always playing on my whole house audio system). Fortunately, we mostly enjoy the same music.
I haven't wired the kids bedrooms. They usually listen to music falling asleep, using their CD players, or son using his tablet and a Bluetooth speaker.
Wiring the kids' bedrooms would be easy (attic above), but they seem happy with the current options.
The 12 year old likes to play whatever he fancies, immediately. I haven't added the WHA app to his tablet. We almost always use KPs for WHA control.
The 10 and 8 year olds aren't as interested in music, but will tune into their preferred music when I'm not around (SXM kids' channels).
So, it depends on your kids. If it's easy to add speakers to their rooms later, I would wait and see. I could see each of my kids with a Sonos in each of their rooms, with in-ceiling speakers, separate from the WHA system, in a few years. I wouldn't need to share, though I have 3 zones to spare, and 6 total inputs to the Nuvo GC, with expander (16 zones, 11 currently used).
