Give your home an “empty-nest” makeover

Give your home an “empty-nest” makeover

Have your kids all moved away to college? Whether you're jumping for joy or can't seem to shake the nostalgia, we offer a few helpful tips on how to decorate for this next chapter of your life.

  • Don't purge without approval: During the cleaning process, it may be tempting to quickly discard some of your child's belongings without his or her approval. But the last thing anyone wants is for your student to come home to find that her favorite childhood stuffed animal is now in the dumpster and that MVP award she won on her high school soccer team has been shredded. Instead of purging these items, organize them neatly in a closet. Chances are, your child will have a lot of free time during Christmas break to go through these belongings and decide what he or she wants to keep.
  • Decorate like an adult: During one chapter of your life, your home was filled with finger paintings, Legos, and Barbie dream houses. Now that your kids have grown up and moved away, you have the ability to start decorating like an adult again. This is your time to decide what look you want your home to exude. It's a great time to move from tradition and try different styles, such as mod or avant–garde vibes. Regardless of the style you choose, Metropolitan Window Fashions can help you decorate like a pro.
