Blind inspiration: redecorating your kid’s room after they’ve left home
September sees many parents waving goodbye to their child, who is about to embark on their first taste of adulthood at university. It’s undoubtedly a sad time, but it’s also something to celebrate; no longer is your teenager hiding away in one of your bedrooms! Now that you have some space to play with, you can turn this formally forbidden space into your own relaxation zone. Go on, you’ve earned it. Here are some of the possibilities you can pursue:
Nothing says luxury more than your own home library. For a clean and fresh look, go for white walls, floor to ceiling book shelves and brown key pieces, such as a tub chair and a rug. Perfect fit blinds will eliminate windowsill clutter and fit in with the crisp, zen and peaceful decor. To really amp the luxurious feel, go for the traditional library look of dark woods, leather armchairs, lots of cushions and a statement lighting piece. A Roman blind would provide the perfect finishing touch!
Now you don’t have to clean up after your teenager, you can use that extra energy to hit the gym and get in shape, and where better than the comfort of your own home? A key aerobic piece, such as a treadmill or CrossFit some free weights and exercise mats will be more than sufficient for an effective at-home workout. A tv and music system would be a great addition to motivate you during your workout. If you’re concerned about your neighbours peeking in, some twist/vision blinds are a great option for you to have full control over your privacy and lighting, whilst still maintaining a view.
A widescreen tv, your favourite movie and a large comfortable sofa are all you need for a perfect relaxing night in. Keep the walls dark and decor muted so as not to detract from the viewing, and choose plenty of warm blankets and fluffy pillows for the ultimate comfort. Throw in a mini-fridge for your snacks and you’re in heaven! We recommend installing a blackout blind to ensure the glare doesn’t disturb your movie.
Whether you already work from home or are looking to catch up with your deadlines, your loved one’s exit from the home means that you can finally indulge in your own quiet sanctuary to be productive in. Go for calming colours like creams or deep blues and greens and make your desk the centerpiece. Add a few family photos for decoration and invest in a vertical blind for a truly professional and neat appearance.
