Fun, useful room remodels for when the kids leave - Santa Clarita Valley Signal
The moment the kids leave the house and go to their own houses, it can begin to feel empty and quiet. One begins to feel a sense of lose and a yearning for their presence. The best thing to do not to lose something out in the process is to start a remodeling project for the space they have left behind in order to believe that you are gaining something in return in the process. One could first consider the classics in the remodeling project and this might include making the empty space into a gym, into a guest room, or using it for an home office. For those who do not consider the classic approach, they might want to consider things that are exceptional and out of the ordinary. This might include making the empty space into a home theater where one can enjoy watching Netflix movies or other shows in the free time. Another option is to make it into an arts and craft room for recreation, relaxation, and creativity. You could add windows to the room to allow natural light to come in and add some paintings. Other ideas for the empty space are outlined in the blog.
