It sure seems like our children grow up right before our eyes, and soon they’ll be packing up their things and moving out of the house. Before you know it, you’re an empty nester, which is something to be proud of! Although you may feel some sadness and begin to notice how quiet your house is, there’s consolation knowing you raised children who have grown up to be independent.
Now that your children are no longer living at home, it’s time to make use of the empty space they used to occupy. Bedrooms, game rooms and hangout spaces are now up for grabs, and you have the opportunity to create the room you’ve always wanted. Here are some suggestions that can help you decide how to redecorate your kid’s old room.

If you’re not interested in starting what could be a long and tedious project, turning your child’s bedroom into an updated guest room is a great way to make use of space. Adding new bedding and replacing any childlike furniture are easy ways to transform the room, and now you’ll have additional space for company when they arrive.
