Room Renovation Ideas for Empty Nesters

Room Renovation IdeasNow that all of the kids have moved out, have you been wondering what you can do with their old rooms? We’ve rounded up a list of room renovation ideas for empty nesters. 

Home Gym

Home GymOne of the greatest benefits of a home gym is that you don’t have to drive to a busy gym and compete with the crowds for a turn on the treadmill. You can customize any bedroom to become your own personalized gym with your own weights, bench press or treadmill. Elevate the space with full-length mirrors and bright-colored walls. 

Hobby Room 

Don’t relegate your hobby materials to a pile in the back of your closet. Now that the kids are gone and there’s extra space in the house, you can dedicate a room to your favorite hobby. For a kitschy look, incorporate your hobby into the décor.  

Entertainment Center 

So many Americans dream of having the ultimate entertainment room and now that you are empty nesters, this dream can become a reality! Turn that spare room into an entertainment room, complete with TV, ping pong, air hockey or your game of choice. 

Personal Library 

Do you love books? Dedicate an extra room for storing your favorite books and set up a comfortable couch or chair to sit in while curling up with a good book. Make sure to store some snacks and a coffee maker for when you get hungry for an afternoon treat. Don’t forget to add decorations, flowers or plants, and wall art to give the library a homey and personal vibe. 

Office

Even if you don’t regularly work from home, having your own office space can make your entire home feel more polished. Wooden elements give a home office a classic, rustic feel while still looking sleek and modern.
