Packing up your children’s belongings and moving them into a college dorm or even their own apartment can be overwhelming for parents who are used to having their family close at hand. While many parents choose to keep their child’s room as is, a growing number are taking advantage of the extra space by revamping the area, turning it into something that the rest of the family can enjoy.
If you’re ready to remodel—but not sure where to start—the following ideas from the Relocation.com blog will help set the wheels in motion.
Whether you work from home on a daily basis or are simply looking for a space to pay bills, the addition of a home office will help keep both your home and paperwork organized. All you need to get started is a computer desk and chair, shelves, bookcases and cabinets.
If you’re looking for a new place to entertain your friends and family, a game room may be the perfect solution. From board games to dart boards and even pool tables, a game room is a great place to house any and everything you need for a night of entertaining. Don’t forget to save some space for food and beverages.
Depending on how much space you have, your game room can double as a media room. By adding a TV, surround sound, comfortable seating and even shelves to display your CDs, DVDs and books, you can create a space that fits all your needs.
For those that love a good workout, you can easily convert an empty room into an exercise room. Whether you plan on incorporating a few workout machines into the area or even yoga mats, work out DVDs and free weights, having a place to exercise at home will eliminate the need to ever set foot in a gym again.
