Empty Nesters: Reclaim your home with home improvements

Empty Nesters: Reclaim your home with home improvements

You nurtured them through infancy, guided them through childhood and tolerated them through the teens! Now it’s time for your precious children to leave the nest.

For some this can be very emotional, but it can also be a time of positivity and embracing change. These days, many parents are taking the opportunity to ‘reclaim’ their home when entering this next phase of their lives.

General Manager of Summit Home Improvements Perth, Mr Johnston says this is a great opportunity to reassess how your home will work for you in the future. “Its time to follow your dreams, and reinvent your home to reflect your new lifestyle,” said Mr Johnston

Every parent will ‘reclaim’ their home in different ways. “We see a lot of empty nesters use the kids moving out as an opportunity to finally indulge in hobbies during retirement,” said Mr Johnston. “They’d become so involved in their children’s lives that they’d lost touch with all the things they used to love.

“So if you love yoga and exercise, why not convert your son’s bedroom into a relaxing retreat or gym? Maybe you have a passion for art – extending an unused room and incorporating big, light-inviting windows could create the perfect studio.”

Others seek to change gears by starting a home business that was not feasible while the kids were at home. “It opens up a whole new world of possibilities for converting bedrooms into practical business space,” said Mr Johnston.

No kids also means more time to entertain. “It’s a great time to renovate your home to make the space larger for entertaining friends, which will serve you well as you head towards retirement.

“And let’s not forget that you’re going to miss having your kids around, especially as they settle down and start having grandchildren. Creating a dedicated guest wing is a great way to entice the kids back home to stay over.”
