Kids grow up so fast! One moment, you’re carefully tucking your baby boy into his crib. Turn around twice, and you need a marching band and a tow truck to get him out of bed and on his way to school in the morning! If your child has outgrown the nursery, you may be considering remodeling. Or you may be thinking about making a home addition, building a new bedroom for your kids.
Planning Your Home Addition
Creating a great kid’s room begins in the design stage. Plan this space carefully. It is destined to be your child’s bedroom for the next handful of years, but what happens after that? You may have other children who are eager to occupy the space – or you may be planning to use the space for a home office, guest bedroom, storage, or even a library. Talk with your Hudson building contractor about your short and long term plans for the space. This will help you make choices that serve your needs now and for years to come.
The Best Kid’s Bedrooms
When you’re designing a bedroom for an older child or teen, keep these things in mind. You’ll need plenty of storage space: kids have lots of clothes, sports gear, musical instruments, gaming gear, and those toys that they’re still holding on to – even while they’re asking for the car keys! Built in organization – closets, cupboards, and more – make life easier. Explore design options until you find the one that best accommodates your family’s needs and your teen’s personal style.
Flooring choices should be both durable and easy to clean, to combat the inevitable spills. Talk with your Hudson home addition specialist about options in lighting and wall treatments. Color and fixture selection can help you create a truly unique space that will serve your family well for years to come.
