How to fill that new empty room your college student left behind

empty_nest_exBecoming an empty nester comes with lots of dramatic changes. From a quieter house to less cooking and laundry, it can be an adjustment. You may miss your college-bound child dearly, but an empty room has so much potential.

Here are some ideas to help you fill the unoccupied space:

Guest room
With most of their belongings gone, you can clean the room and add a few items to create a cozy space for any and all visitors. And chances are good that your son or daughter will need a place to sleep when they come home on holidays and breaks.

Home office
A space dedicated to paying bills, maintaining the budget or working from home can make your life a lot more organized. With only a desk, computer and swivel chair, you can turn any room into a productive zone in no time.

Hobby room
If you’ve always wanted a place where you can get your creative juices flowing, now’s your chance. Add some organizational items like cabinets, counter space and a chair and you’ll have a place to draw, bead, scrapbook and craft. The possibilities can be endless.

Workout room
All you need is a treadmill, elliptical and a couple of free weights for a functional home gym. You won’t even need to leave the house to squeeze in your workout.
