Your College Graduate Has Moved Out. Why not Re-Purpose Their Old Bedroom?
Your child’s college graduation day is a very proud day. You’ve looked forward to seeing your child walk across the stage in their cap and gown and receive their diploma—what a wonderful achievement! You’re sure to remember all the years of hard work building up to this moment—the homework, tests, papers, and studying. All the hours they spent working at their desk in their room reading, writing, memorizing, and solving problems. They’ve come so far and accomplished so much and now they’re ready to venture out into the world on their own—to move out of the house, find a job, and begin their future.
The day your child moves away from home is often both a joyful and a sad day. It’s also a time of transition into another exciting chapter in life. One with new opportunities and adventures. After your child moves out and joins the working world, you may find you have more free time to explore new hobbies, visit with friends, or even travel. You also have a great opportunity to transform their unused bedroom into the room of your dreams!
There are so many possibilities. Just imagine what you could do!
- Artist’s studio
- Collectibles room
- Craft room
- Game room
- Man cave
- Meditation room
- Music room
- Sewing room
- TV/media room
- Work-out room
Just imagine, you could have your own work-out room with a treadmill, rowing machine, free weights, or other preferred exercise equipment. Or, you could turn the room into an artist’s studio for your easels, canvases, and paints. Perhaps you prefer a music room to focus on learning or writing music. You could turn the room into a sewing room, TV room, or game room. Whatever your hobby, craft, activity, or personal collection, you can transform the room into something useful and fun!
If you like the idea of turning your child’s old bedroom into the room you’ve always wanted, but still want to hold onto their childhood furniture, trophies, knick-knacks, and other keepsakes for future use, consider storing these items in a rented storage unit. You can safely pack up unused furniture, books, artwork, posters, or unseasonal clothing, and keep them all secure in a storage unit.
You can also make space in your home by packing up any unused sporting equipment like water skis, skateboards, bicycles, hockey equipment, baseball bats, basketball goals, soccer nets, fishing poles and tackle, and other items taking up precious space, and store them in your rented storage unit. With a secure storage unit, you can hold onto items you’re not ready to get rid of and still have the opportunity to update your home with new furnishings as well as re-purpose any unused rooms.
