The kids have finally left the house to start their own adventures, be it college or their first adult job. And while life as an empty nester can take some getting used to, it does have a few advantages, like quiet and more space. How you choose to use this new, available space is completely up to you. But if you find yourself getting a bit overwhelmed and are looking for ways to keep yourself busy during this adjustment period, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite home projects to do once your kids have left the nest.
Get Organized & Declutter
Before you tackle an entire house renovation, decluttering is a good place to start. Getting organized, taking inventory, and tidying your home will revive it—allowing you the opportunity to start fresh in a residence that’s completely your own. This is also a great time to spot check for any home maintenance needs or downsize if you are planning to move into a smaller place.
Check For Home Upgrades
As you clean and organize your home, keep a running list of any necessary home maintenance needs as well as dream home upgrades. Whether you spot a crack in a window or realize that the kids’ old bathtub is no longer needed, investing in renovations will help you restore your home to its original glory and keep it up to date with market trends.
Invest in Some Aging-in-Place Renovations
If you aren’t planning to move in the future or downsize to a smaller place, consider investing in upgrades that are designed to cater to aging-in-place homeowners. These upgrades, like walk-in shower systems and bathtubs, will not only make your life easier in the long haul but will also ensure you continue to feel safe and comfortable in your home.
