Reinventing Your Home When Your Children Fly The Nest

One of the important factors in creating a successful guest bedroom is creating a sense of neutrality. If you are hoping to entertain a wide number of different guests, neutrality will not alienate any of their differing personalities,tastes or trais

It can be one of the hardest days of a parent's life. The day when your darling child leaves your side and moves onto pastures new. Whether it is to a home of their own or for university, the sense of loss can be hard to cope with for a parent. The apron strings have been cut and now the children must survive independently and upon their own two feet. A sense of quiet may take over the home as a family member leaves a palpable gap.

As these feelings subside, it is time to utilise the additional space that their departure has afforded your home. The room and area that was dedicated to allowing your child to prosper can now be used in a myriad of selfish and brilliant ways. Whatever your great hobby or passion, you now have additional room and ability to enjoy it.

One of the most popular uses for a newly acquired spare room is the creation of an enviable guest bedroom. With more space in the home, many people are inclined to entertain more regularly than before. This also serves to fill the gap and the quiet that may have entered the home in the wake of the recent departure.

One of the important factors in creating a successful guest bedroom is creating a sense of neutrality. If you are hoping to entertain a wide number of different guests, neutrality will not alienate any of their differing personalities, tastes or traits. Floral patterns may excite some parties but will only create a negative response in others. Using black and white tones will help remove the risk of creating an atmosphere than some may find difficult to enjoy.

Black High Gloss Furniture perfectly creates this minimalistic, neutral style. Creating a timeless sense of elegance with its shivering and shimmering façade; the reflection of any feature colours bounce off the surface. White High Gloss Furniture can help alleviate the main problem that many guest bedrooms face: lack of space. The reflective nature of a White Gloss Wardrobe works in a similar style to a mirror in the sense that it creates the impression of additional space within a confined area.

Use an Ottoman Bed in the guest bedroom to further increase the space allowance. Folded upwards, the underside of an Ottoman Bed can serve to be the main storage space of the guest bedroom. Bags, cases, clothes and a whole myriad of different belongings can be stored under the multi-use bed.
