3 ways to reimagine your newly empty home

When you have the house to yourself, it may be hard to know what to do with the space. Should you keep everything as-is, renovate, downsize? There isn’t one right answer, but now is the time to reflect on what you want from this new chapter in your life.

Here are a few ideas for redefining your home:

1.Get started on a long-awaited remodeling project

While you might have put off renovations in previous years, it’s time to finally give your home an update. Changing up the design or even functionality of spaces will help you to create a home that is meets your needs and desires. You might also take this time to fix elements of your home that need tending. Nesterly Host, Peggy Griffin used the extra income she made from homesharing to fix the roof on her 1868 home—a task she’s put off for many years due to cost and time.

2. Create space for your hobbies

Make your home your own. Add details that speak to your interests and hobbies. For example, if you love reading, incorporate new book shelves in your living room, for gardening enthusiasts, clearing off windowsills and for an indoor garden can bring the outdoors indoors from the waning days of winter to spring. Even adding a new table to a free corner in your home can result in a space to host Mahjong games with friends and neighbors.

3. Transform a spare room

A rarely used room that sits vacant most of the time is ripe for repurposing. Letting a room like that sit empty, or worse, filled with random items is a shame. Instead, transform that extra space into extra income. Through Nesterly, you can host a quality guest for over one-month long stays who not only pays rent but also helps out around the home. It’s free to list your spare room on Nesterly and flexible so you can set your own terms and house rules.
