There comes a time in every parent’s life where your kids have grown out of their rooms, moved out of their rooms or have just pretended to leave only to move back in when they feel (most college kids). Whatever the case may be, keeping your kids’ room just for them when they no longer use it can be a waste of free space and an inconvenience. So here are some ways to revamp your kids’ old rooms to suit your needs as well as add more value and beauty to your home. Let’s take look below at some quick ideas on how to your kid’s rooms.
Kids Old Rooms Ideas: Giving it a New Purpose

For Your Recreational Purposes
Haven’t you or your spouse ever had plans or ideas on making your kid’s rooms to something you all wanted for yourselves? Such as, a home office that you get you work done in or a place you wanted to start your own business in. Perhaps, you even have hobbies and would like to make it a hobby room for enjoyment. Like a sewing room, a library for the house or even a man cave. The choices are endless. Some have gone as far as merging the room with the master room in order to create a master suite.

A Guest Room
Turn your old kid’s rooms into rooms for your guests. Friends and family love to visit one another and especially with the holidays around the corner it would be great to have a space designated for them. Just remove anything that was your kids, add in (if not already there) a full sized bed, a storage rack, dresser and clean/open closet space. Try having a neutral color palette, with mixture of white linens around this will help to create an organic and inviting feel to the space. This can also work both ways if the child is in college and comes home for the summer semester, they still have a place to sleep and it won’t have to be your sofa.

Perhaps Juts a Simple Upgrade
Maybe, your child hasn’t moved out but rather grown out of the style of their old room and just wants an upgrade to fit their current style. Typically, if the child is bold enough to come to you about their room being to childish then they may have some ideas of their own. So like you would do with any renovation, remold or revamping- discuss the budget, the ideas and set the time frame. Let them show you which way they want to go and of course the choice is really yours about what will actually be ok for their room in your house. It could be a new paint job or just a new comforter set.
We love our kids dearly, but sometimes we may not be so gun-ho about all of their things they like to leave with us. You don’t have to let those rooms fall by the wayside, now you have the opportunities to do what you want within your home. So get creative and think out of the box. Make your kid’s rooms your rooms again. And above are some ways on how.
