It is an emotional time when your kids grow up and leave home.
You might be ready for your child to start their new life or college experience but, an empty room that was full of your child’s spirit and personality is a reminder of what is now missing: those half-eaten sandwiches, sports paraphernalia, dirty clothes on the floor, and surfaces smothered in unnecessary paper and candy wrappers. It is a tough transition for many parents and one way to address this is to decide how you will use that room now that it won’t be lived in every day.
Before you reclaim their space, you may want to discuss with your child your plans, and hear what he or she would like the room to be like when it is time for them to come home for a visit. You may agree with your teen, there should still be some evidence of their place at home.
Some ideas to stimulate what direction you could take to redesign that bedroom.
