Space is a highly sought after commodity and one that often becomes very short in supply as your kids get older. As they progress through school, having a quiet place to study becomes very important to ensure they achieve the success they deserve.
It’s been shown that the most effective study environments are free from distractions, enable easy access to everything your child needs to concentrate and is very organised.
Some teenagers are very capable of studying in their bedrooms as long as the above needs are met, but for many, the bedroom is a place to play and sleep so switching from “study mode” to “rest mode” is not easily achieved and can unfortunately result in both poor sleep and poor study. Not an ideal situation at all.
So what are your options? Of course you could move, but if they are settled in an area and school they love with great friends and the idea of moving and disrupting their lives may not be something you want to consider, not to mention that buying a bigger house may end up costing you significantly.
What’s the alternative? A first floor addition gives you the flexibility of adding additional floor space to your home to utilise as your needs change. While you need it, you have a dedicated study that can be transformed into a guest bedroom, craft room, games room or home theatre later down the track if you need it.
Just think what you can do with all that extra space!
