Every parent thinks it’ll never happen, but there comes a time in every child’s life when they begin to outgrow the bedroom they’ve had since being a grasshopper!
The trouble is that kids can be expensive and if you have no plans to move then you have to think of other low-cost ways to make sure they’re comfortable.
Luckily, there are options available to help make the most of your space without it costing a fortune.
If your child is hitting the end of their growth spurt, it might be time to explore a bespoke bedroom solution.
This will allow you to design the room around their needs and tastes (within reason), and the quality of the finished product will mean it can last for years.
Bespoke furniture will make the most of all the nooks and crannies and awkward areas of the room, and provide a place to hide away all of the clutter, making the room feel much larger.
Bedrooms fitted to your requirements don’t have to cost the earth either, as there are many suppliers that will design something to fit to your budget. The longevity of the furniture will also mean you won’t have to replace it for years.
This is an option that is unavailable to a lot of people and may be too costly for others, but if you do have the space available and can get enough money to do it then converting your loft or attic space into another bedroom can be a very good move.
Not only will you create a new fabulous space for your offspring to expand into, but you could also add a significant sum to the value of your home.
You should also consider how much more peace and quiet you will get by moving your child to the top of the house, well out of earshot!
There is nothing that many children like more than having a bed that they can quite literally climb into.
There is a huge selection of beds available from a wide variety of furniture retailers that are raised off the ground to free up the space underneath it for a better use. For younger children you can get beds fitted with slides, while older children will be delighted with a double bed raised above a desk where they can pretend to do their homework.
It may seem simple, but often simply redecorating a room can open up a lot of space. It may be that by painting the room a lighter colour makes the room feel more spacious.
By buying new furniture, with space-saving in mind, it’s amazing how much space you can create. Consider, for example, how much extra space you could create just by buying a bed with under-bed drawers.
