Due For A Room Renovation

I was tidying up my children’s bedroom this morning when I realized that the fixtures that they have in their room are no longer suitable to their needs. Although the bed is still functional, I noticed that their wardrobe cabinet is too small for them. They are sharing a single wardrobe cabinet which holds all their clothes including their school uniforms. I noticed that they have accumulated a lot of clothes, particularly shirts, that some of them would end up in our closet.

I told my husband that our next project would have to be the renovation of our children’s bedroom. It doesn’t have to be a major renovation project but a simple one where we may just have to replace a few fixtures. One thing for sure though, we need a new wardrobe closet, one that has drawer slides; so that it is easier to open and close. A cabinet that has a sliding door is also a space saver which is exactly what we need since the two of them are sharing the same room. A bigger space would make them feel less restricted thereby making them more comfortable.
