Have you been thinking about a room addition? With everyone stuck at home together, it is only natural to be looking for ways to get a little privacy. There are a lot of different ways you could use a room addition in these times. Here are just a few ideas you might not have thought of.
Family work room
Most kids are doing school virtually, and their parents are also working from home. Why not make study and work a family activity? It’s easy to become distracted when working on your own in an environment where you usually relax, and that’s just as true for your children as it is for you. Having one work room where everyone can keep each other on task and parents can help with schoolwork is a great way to take advantage of a room addition.
Divided play room for multiple children
Are your kids constantly at each other? It’s not natural for children to only have each other to play with. If you have more than one child sharing a room, separating them without it seeming like punishment can be a challenge. Making a divided play room gives them the option to play alone or together.
This can be a better idea than just making another bedroom. It keeps the children from being resentful about who gets the new room. With a divided playroom, they are benefiting equally. Any parent of multiple children knows how important that is to winning a battle!
The best thing about a room addition is that you can make it as big as you want as long as you stay on your property. Why not take advantage of that by creating a social distancing entertainment room?
Everyone is getting a bit cooped up, and it’s not just because you’re getting cabin fever looking at the same walls every day. We are social creatures, and the socialization we get when we go out with friends is extremely important. Even though gatherings have to be kept small and with reasonable measures, having a large entertainment space could allow you to spend some time with friends and family.
