Are you parents to one of the 3.3 million young adults still living at home? Even if you're not, read on - it's better to be prepared for the future now.
The parent/child relationship dynamic changes considerably when they return home as young adults. The often said phrase "our house, our rules" doesn't hold quite the same weight anymore, and in bed by ten soon becomes home by dawn.
Your once small, adoring child, whose belongings all fitted into the back of the car when you drove them to halls for the first time, is now fully grown. And as adults they have all the extra material possessions amassed whilst living away from home.
All their accumulated belongings are overflowing from their now cramped bedroom and your home starts to feel like an over-booked hotel at peak season. It's clear you're going to need more space than ever. As they said in Jaws "We're gonna need a bigger boat".
This was something that our client, Adrian in Collier's Wood had decided to do when his daughter returned home from university.
Rather than move out of the family home of 20 years, Adrian opted to build a new master bedroom with an en-suite. He now has a beautiful bedroom with a Juliet balcony and his family is happily enjoying more spacious living. It all goes towards a more harmonious household and no more bathroom disputes in the morning.
