Give your high school grad a room makeover this fall

With the current rental market keeping more kids at home after graduation, giving your teen’s room a college-level upgrade can be a great way to provide them with more space and independence as they take this next step into adulthood.

“Having your teen staying home into their college years may feel like a blessing for parents in the sense that you get to keep them close for longer but it can also feel a bit disappointing for young adults who are ready for more freedom,” says Mandy Singh, owner of Nanaimo Home Furnishings.

“Giving their childhood bedroom a makeover can be a great way to lift their spirits, give them some practical tools and show them the perks of staying at home with mom and dad for a bit longer.”

Savvy space-savers

It can be tricky finding more space in an existing room and not everyone has a spare basement that can be renovated to accommodate a new living area, but utilizing multi-purpose, space-saving furniture can free up floor space for a mini-fridge, desk or even a small entertaining area.

“Our multi-purpose bunk bed is the perfect all-in-one solution for a small space. The bottom bunk easily transforms into an additional sleeping area or a comfortable sitting space with a table that’s perfect for dining or studying,” Singh says.

If your teen’s room has a bit more floor space to spare, setting them up with an entertaining space of their own can be a great way to give them more room to spread out and a greater sense of independence.

“We have a wide selection of Canadian-made sectionals, love seats and living room furniture that’s perfect for furnishing small spaces,” Singh says.

While an apartment of their own might still be out of reach, a room refresh can be just what the doctor ordered. Find more great interior design solutions in store at 1713 Bowen Rd. or call them at 250-591-2053. Find them online at or on Facebook.
