4 Brilliant ideas to use your child's bedroom  now that it's moved out

Have your children left home for the university or are they leaving soon? Would you like to get the most out of your new space? We give some ideas on how to handle a potentially difficult situation with the children, followed by some great suggestions on how to change and use the space.


Fall. The season in which we return to normal routine after a long summer - and the season in which the kids go back to school. If you have older children, the university could start. That means two things - of course you will miss them, but also - that you may have more room in your home! Many people today struggle for mobility because of the high home prices and want to make the most of every part of their lives - so this extra space can be a blessing. You get more space without having to move - perfect! Obviously, it's not all rosy when your child leaves - only a few of us are happy to see that they are fully walking, and as such, changing the nursery the moment you leave may be a controversial topic because there are enough arguments against it.


Where will they have their place when they come back?

Will they feel like you've kicked them out forever?

What if they have to come back to university to live with you again?

Where are all your things stored?


But there are also good reasons for that:


You can use the extra space for something useful instead of leaving the door closed most of the year. You pay for your home so you can make use of it as often as possible. Whatever you feel about it, we suggest finding ways to use this space.

The most important first

It is always best to sit down and talk with your child about his thoughts. They may be open to you if you reshape the space and make good use of it, or you are very reserved about the idea. But you do not know it until you ask her. If you agree that you use the room - at whatever level - then here are our 4 best advices, in ascending order, depending on how big the necessary change would be ...


 1. USAGE FOR EXTRA LONG STORAGE

Your child will be taking quite a bit of his stuff to the university - now is the perfect time to reserve part of their room for other storage. This is a great option if you, like many others, struggle for space in the rest of the house. For example - what about half of her wardrobe for seasonal clothing? Change will help your child gradually become independent (you want it to become independent!), And it will help you to let it go gradually - this makes the transition much easier. It just does not make sense to use something of this space for something else - otherwise it's a wasted opportunity, and there's always a solution that works for both.


2.  SET UP A MULTIPURPOSE ROOM

How about keeping it as a bedroom for the main body, but also to add a place for hobbies or work? Whether you're sewing, playing music, a TV room, or even a home office, you can easily rank things a bit to make room for what you need, and it does not have to be a permanent change. This is often the perfect balance for all concerned because many parents have difficulty finding space to do the things they love in their home, and children can see that their place will not change drastically.


 3. CREATE A GUEST ROOM

If you do not currently have a guest room, this is the easiest way to use the space. You also do not have to change everything - just cleaning up a bit can create a beautiful environment for both the guests and your child when they visit you again. It's an easy transition for the kids and is the very gentle approach to change. An added bonus is that tidying up now gives your child the opportunity to decide what's really important to the child.


 4. EXCHANGE CHILDREN'S ROOMS

This is the biggest change, but it will be useful for many families. If you have younger children, you might be sharing your room. Now it may be the perfect time to relocate them to your own room and give them the larger room. Your older child would still have their own room (albeit smaller) and the positives would be for them to be able to decorate it and make it their own space when they come home on vacation ...

We hope that this article gave you some ideas and suggestions for the change.

It is a new, exciting phase of your life - a new chapter for all - accept and enjoy!
