Making a Place for Grandchildren

A Space for Grandbaby

Whether it’s your first grandchild or you tenth, a new grandbaby is exciting! D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling feels that having a place for a grandkid at your house will help them look forward to spending time with grandma and grandpa.

Play Space
When little ones begin to join the family, you may have a stock of toys to put out for them, or, toys may begin to migrate to your home. Either way, you’ll need a place to keep them when the kids are back with mom and dad. If the kids spend a great deal of time with you, devoting a spare room, in part or whole, might be a good idea for you, but you may just have a small space to devote, but, either way, effective storage will be your game. A piece of furniture that matches the d├ęcor of your home and can hold the toys when they are not being played with will play a big part in making the space flexible.

Overnight Stays
How to accommodate overnight stays depends on how accommodating you, as grandparents, want to be. Maybe you have the space to give them a whole room for when they visit. Or, there are small pieces of furniture that can help you on the occasional sleepover. If you decide to purchase furniture, the best plan is to buy furniture that will grow with them. If they are growing fast, try to buy pieces that they will grow into-rather than out of. If it’s a slumber party in a living area, fun blankets just for them that have a character they like or a fun pattern will let them know they have a place in your heart and in your home.

Reading Nook
If you’re already a bookworm, clearing a shelf to hold books they love will give them a place to look for their beloved children’s books as they grow up. Or, clear out a space for a reading nook where you can read to them when they are little and sit in when chapter books become their thing. D.J.’s Painting andRemodeling sees a lot of creative ideas for reading spaces and storage, so find one that will fit in your home and make it yours.

There are so many ways to do this whether you have a large space to devote to the munchkins or a small corner. D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling believes both big and small places can be an effective space for grandbaby.
