    Kate and Beth's treatment rooms or Kate's and Beth's treatment rooms

    Hi

    I am writing the location of a fire door between Kate and Beth's treatment rooms - two separate rooms each belonging to Kate and Beth.

    Which is correct:
    ...Kate's and Beth's treatment rooms
    ....Kate and Beth's treatment rooms

    Many thanks

    They don't each belong to both girls.

    If you say "Kate and Beth's treatment rooms", it means that there is more than one treatment room and they both/all belong to both Kate and Beth.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
