One way to make becoming an empty nester more enjoyable is to decorate your home so that it symbolizes your new way of living. Here are my decorating tips for empty nesters.
With kids all grown up and living their own lives, empty nesters now have time to focus on things that matter. This is the time to create a home that reflects where you are in life right now with some new styles!
The first task for empty nesters should be to evaluate whether your home has become outdated or overstuffed. Look at every room and make some decisions about what needs to go — no matter how hard it may seem at the beginning.
Empty nesters don’t have to go completely minimalist. It depends on what their style is like.
You may be surprised at how much space around you expands when you declutter your home. With that extra breathing room comes more decorating opportunities — such as adding pieces that reflect your personal style rather than ones that match sets already in the house.
Many empty nesters downsize while others trade up; either way, you’ll need some basic tips for figuring out how to redecorate.
With so many options available, including newer fabrics, paint colors and tile patterns which accent your home’s architecture, creating a stylish space on a shoestring budget is not difficult.
Try using less expensive products in strategic places around the house that you can easily replace when they become dated or you’re ready for a change.
