Once all the youngsters have cleared the roost, it might not seem like you’re ready to take charge and make them your own. After all, they’ll likely be back home at some time, and we know how sensitive young people can be about their space – even after they relinquish it! Here are a few projects for empty nesters that are far better than renovating the kid’s rooms.
Revamp the Master Suite
This room can quickly become invigorated once the kiddos are gone, so make it truly a space that you and your partner enjoy being. Fresh paint, stylish flooring, and a new bedding ensemble are quick projects, but an expansion of the master suite can be spectacular. Expand the bathroom to incite romance, or install those his and hers walk-in closets you’ve dreamed of.
Say Hello to a Home Theater
Have date night any time with your own home theater area. Cozy up in theater-style recliners, and go ahead and add that extra butter to your popcorn. Now is the time to indulge in all the high-tech advancements and luxuries that you didn’t trust in the hands of your kids.
Create an Entertainment Zone
It may seem odd to want to add a game room after the adolescents leave, and maybe you already have such an area. Turn it into a pleasure palace for adults by adding a pool table, card area, and other games that adults turn to for good times. This creates a perfect area for entertaining guests and getting back into the adult social scene as an empty nester.
The Finishing Touches
Regardless of which projects you decide to tackle, you’ll need a few accessories to spruce up and decorate the area. You’ll find a great selection of gift ideas for the home that you can treat yourself to at Current.
