Two Fun Remodelling Ideas for People Whose Children Are About to Fly the Nest

Many people carry out home renovations after their adult children fly the nest, as the departure of their sons or daughters means that they have some extra cash and plenty of extra space which can be utilised for other purposes. If you are in this situation and intend to have a remodelling contractor update your home, here are some suggestions regarding what to do with all of your new-found space and money.

Consider having a library or 'reading room' built

Whilst bidding farewell to your grown children can be difficult, there are a few positive things that come with this change in circumstances, one of which is that you will have a lot more free time to do the things you enjoy. If you're a bookworm and have always dreamt of having your own library, you could turn one of your children's old bedrooms into a library or a reading room.

Having a dedicated space for your book collection, as well as a reading nook, could help to revive your love of reading now that you have more time to partake in this pastime. If you decide to carry out this particular home renovation project, you might want to ask the remodelling contractor if they can install integrated, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves that fit the exact contours of the walls of the room where they will be located. If your collection is quite large, it is generally safest to have the bookshelves physically secured to the wall rather than using a freestanding bookcase, as the latter could fall forward and injure someone if it is knocked off balance.

This room should also have a reading nook. One option that might work well is to have your remodelling contractor create a custom-built bench seat and attach this seat to the window in such a way that it is level with the windowsill. When you add a few cushions to this seat, it should serve as a cosy spot in which you can sit, read and gaze out the window.

Turn an area previously used as your children's study space into a sophisticated recreational room

If one of the rooms in your home was previously utilised by your children as a study space, then you should consider having this area transformed into a high-end recreational space for you and your partner.

If, for example, if you have a great appreciation for high-quality cocktails and wines, you could have your contractor build a bar in this room, with a countertop on which you can prepare drinks, a shelving unit for your drink collection and an integrated refrigerator.

Additionally, if you enjoy a game of snooker now and then but have never had the space in which to fit a snooker table, you could add one to this room and instruct the remodelling contractor to fit some low-hanging pendant lights above the area where the table will be located.
