Updating Your Empty Nest

Updating Your Empty Nest

Your game room is now quiet, your seven-seater dining room table is being used a bit less, and you no longer have to fight for a spot on the sectional sofa. Your kids have grown up and flown the coup, so now it’s time to update your empty nest.

Downsize Dining Room Table

Small round tables aren't just for breakfast nooks or eat-in kitchens. Look past the giant dining table and give yourself some extra space by opting for a small, round dining table instead. A table with folding leaves is also a great option for when the kids drop by for dinner.

Upgrade to a Multi-Use Room

Unsure of what to do with the old game room? Try turning it into a multi-use room. This room could now serve as an office, craft room, guestroom and more. The key is to invest in pieces that serve a few purposes while all working together. First, decide what the main purpose of the multi-use room will be. If the answer is guestroom that will sometimes serve as a craft area, keep its main function in mind when choosing furniture. Consider incorporating soft furniture that’s functional but feels like it belongs in a bedroom.

Trade in the Sectional

Sectional sofas are wonderful for large families, but when your children leave, you may be left with a lot of unused seating space. It may be time for a more traditional arrangement. Consider a sofa, love seat, and recliner combination. It will take up less space and every seat in the living room will now be the best seat in the house!

Add Accent Pieces

Parents sometimes have to trade in eccentric style for function, but now is the time to let your style shine. Shop accent pieces you never dreamed of before: new buffets, side tables, interesting chairs and more. Find the statement piece you’ve always dreamed of!

Learning to love your newly empty nest might take some time, but with the right downsizing and upgrades, your space will feel cozy and comfortable.
