Once your children are all out of the house, your home may suddenly feel too large or empty. The quiet and newfound space can be disconcerting, especially after raising kids. Instead of letting the extra space sit empty and unused, use this opportunity for home remodeling. Below are three ideas for using this new space wisely.
3 Exciting Empty Nest Home Remodeling Projects
1. Home Office
A home office is always helpful, whether you’ll use it for working from home or for storing important documents. To start, you’ll want to strip the room and paint it a color that boosts focus like a crisp blue or white. This is the perfect opportunity to install shelves and built-in organizational features like custom cabinets so you can store everything you need.
2. Guest Room
Creating a place for your children and others to stay for visits always pays off and doesn’t take much work. To create a space for guests to relax, repaint the room a neutral, calming color like a lavender grey and furnish it with comfortable, cozy pieces. If you want to go the extra mile, add an en suite bathroom so that guests have an increased sense of privacy.
3. Expanded Master Suite
This remodeling project is a little more intensive than making a guest room, but can pay off big time. If one of your children’s former bedrooms is adjacent to your own, knocking out the wall creates a lot more space to work with. You could turn this area into an expansive walk-in closet, or make a luxurious master bathroom.
