3 Home Ideas for Empty Nesters

By Alex Zook

First off, congratulations! You raised independent, self-sufficient children who have finally “flown the coop”. That is until they graduate, can’t find a job, and move back into your newly finished basement… ahhh millennials. But let’s not think about that yet. After so many years of selflessly focusing on your kids, it’s now time to turn your attention back to you. This child-free chapter of your life is full of nothing but endless possibility. But where do you even begin?

More SPA-cious Master Bathroom
According to a recent survey, people now prefer larger and more luxurious master bathrooms. Complete with walk-in steam showers, higher vanities, his and her sinks (my dad’s tip for a happy marriage), and waterfall shower heads, just to name a few. The current trend is to focus on more personalized and spa-like amenities, such as heated floors and ceiling mounted bath fillers for some extra flair.

Large Walk-in Closets
An empty nest means having more space for you and your clothes! Gone are the days when you have to unceremoniously cram another shirt into an already overflowing drawer. A large walk-in closet is the perfect solution to organizing your clothes and accessories.

Pet Friendly Features
Now that the two-legged children are gone you can focus on spoiling your four-legged children! Some of the most popular new features include washing and drying stations, feeding areas, and custom built-in cabinetry providing an elegant solution for a dog house.
