We’ve already shared some tips on how to update your adult child’s space so that he or she doesn’t feel like the move home is a move straight back into childhood. Here are some more tips, this time from the Cape Cod Times.
Here’s their list of five-second fixes for your adult child’s room:
- Add some fluff: Decorative pillows in corresponding colors can give a bit of pop to a plain bedspread.
- Floor it: Adding an Oriental rug or other vibrant floor covering disguises ratty carpet and brightens the room.
- Print ’em: A favorite print, a blown-up photo of friends, or a tapestry hung on the wall immediately draws the eye toward it – and away from the piles of dirty clothes in the corner.
- All-in-one: A bed-in-a-bag set, which often contains a comforter, sheets and pillowcases, can refurbish a room in one fell swoop.
- It’s a keeper: A favorite keepsake, such as a high school trophy or beloved teddy bear, will ensure the room is comfortable, no matter how many changes are made.
