What to Do With that Room? Remodeling Ideas for Empty Nesters

Roofing 15

It’s a big event when your youngest child moves out.  While he or she is embarking on a new adventure, you are left in a very empty house!  Some parents choose to leave their child’s room as is, because it provides a familiar place for your child to stay when he or she visits home.  However, a fresh look for this room can create a new feeling to your home, welcome change, and add value to your property.  Here are some fun remodeling ideas for your empty nest:

Create a Master Suite

Have you dreamed of a larger, more comfortable master bedroom? Depending on where your child’s room is in relation to yours, you may be able to tear down a wall or two to create one larger suite. This remodel can open up the room and create more space for a king-sized bed, walk-in closet, or luxury bathroom.  If you’re happy with your current master bedroom, a small-scale remodel can also be done to create a spacy, inviting guest room.

Design a Room Just for You

Consider using the extra space to design a room just for you and your hobbies, interests or passions! Think about the things you never had space to do before; and create a fun game room, office, art studio, gym, or dance studio that’s just for you.  You can remove the carpet and put in new flooring, add a skylight, put in a window, or install new lighting fixtures to give the room a brand new glow. You may also want to consider a sound system, new paint job, and furniture installations such as a desk or shelves to modernize the room.
