Great Home Remodeling Projects for “Empty Nest” Parents

Within the world of home remodeling, there are many different reasons why homeowners might choose a specific remodeling project. Some are looking to upgrade older features, others are looking to raise home value in advance of a sale, and still others are reacting to changing home circumstances.

At Uintah Fireplace and Design, we’re proud to offer home remodeling services to those serving any specific purpose. From our basement finishing to kitchen and bathroom remodeling, we’ll help you achieve a beautiful new space for an affordable cost. One of the “changing circumstances” we referenced above that’s a common precursor to a home remodeling decision: Parents who are becoming “empty-nesters” as their children reach early adulthood and move out, whether to attend college or for some other purpose. If you’re in such a position, what are some of the unique home remodeling services you might consider? Let’s take a look at a few popular options for those in this situation.

Combining Bedrooms

In most cases, those with children in the home have utilized a house with several smaller bedroom spaces – this is needed so everyone has their own bedroom, of course. But once your children have left the nest, the possibilities for alternative uses of this space open up significantly.

One choice many make in this position is combining one of the smaller bedrooms with their own to create a more spacious master bedroom suite. Tearing down walls here is easier and cheaper than you might think, and may allow you the kind of space and ambiance you’ve been waiting on for years.

Tailoring Kitchens or Bathrooms

In homes where parents and kids shared bathrooms, or even more commonly where kitchen space is shared (this is the case in nearly all homes), new empty-nesters may want to change things up in a big way once the kids are moved out. Have you long desired a particular kitchen style, but couldn’t get away with it because you were afraid the kids would dirty it up and damage it? Now is the time to go for it. Personalize and upgrade to your heart’s content.

Improved Home Office

In spaces where a home office connects to either a guest room or one of your kids’ former rooms, you can consider a different kind of wall tear-down to improve your office space. Some who often host guests will even turn this into a combined office and bedroom space, one that serves as a guest suite during the holidays or other important times but allows you a quiet, peaceful office area when guests aren’t staying over.
