Apparently, you could leave the messy room as a shelter for your college freshman when back home for a visit. But from the other perspective, would not it be lovely to use the space? When kids are out of the nest for a study at college and start their own life, consider one of redecorating ideas that FurniturePick has collected for you to give the second life to an empty space. Just take into consideration, it is better to put the kids into the picture well in advance, so they won’t be annoyed when expecting to come into their good old cave. And before you get to throw something from their stuff out, keep consulting them. Even if you think those are ancient posters on the walls and useless scratch papers in the drawers. Don’t forget to leave some closet space open for them when they come back home for a visit.
1. Guest Room
Bedroom for guests will serve you double. It will be still comfortable for your kids when they are back home for a visit and it will be a great room for guests to stay at your place. Refresh the paint and change the room decor, get the new spacious wardrobe and the sleeper sofa – and voila! – the guest room is ready!
2. Home Office
Expansive desk, bookcase or home office wall, neutral redecoration of the room will re-energise the space. Replacing the youth bedroom furniture with the functional home office pieces will make the space work good for a professional productivity.
3. Home Cinema or Man Cave
Or even go further into making it a man cave with the game table set and a mini fridge. Just simply swap the bed for a cool couch and lounge chairs. Larger spaces can fit the bar table and pool or ping pong table.
4. Hobby Room or Lounge Oasis
Guess what? Now you would have the separate place for your beloved hobby and no need to hide the supplies in the storage all the time. Scrapbooking or meditation room, lounge space – whatever you like! Make it mind-and-soul heaven. For a hobby room, you just need to make the list what pieces of furniture you need and how you would like it arranged in the space.
Seems like unbelievable, but you’ll be surprised how much space will be available, once you remove the bed and dresser together with the desk from the kid’s room. You will have plenty of space for your small home gym! Get it equipped with the cross-trainers and appropriate covering, couple of mirrors and stereo system for inspiration. And be ready for good workouts.
