MY ADULT CHILD HAS MOVED HOME. HOW CAN I MAKE ROOM?

The kid’s room you’re decorating might not be for a little one. More adult children are moving back in with Mom and Dad or staying home while they go to school.
 
If you live in a multi-generational home, make it work for everyone. Here are Rosie’s tips:

  • Separate the adult child’s living quarters from yours as much as possible. Assigning a finished basement or a little-used den as a bedroom allows a young adult some added privacy.
  • If your grown child is reclaiming his or her old bedroom, replace the kid-sized single bed with a double or queen-sized version, and add dressers and bookcases for clothes, a computer and a TV.
  • If you don’t use your formal dining room, consider converting it to a bedroom for your adult child. Once you have the house to yourself again, you might want to use that new main-floor bedroom yourself instead of climbing the stairs to the master bedroom every night.
  • Ask the child to pay a modest rent to help pay for new furniture, redecorating, utilities and meals.
