Are your parents planning on nicking your bedroom? Probably...
From walk-in wardrobes to guest bedrooms - 76 per cent of new students' parents have grand designs for their kids' rooms
This year’s freshers may not have left the nest for their chosen universities just yet, but many parents are already plotting to reclaim their bedrooms.
A survey carried out by media recycling site Zumu has found that three quarters of the 2,000 parents questioned have their beady eyes on turning the soon-to-be empty bedroom into something purely for them.
Just under a quarter admit excitement over the house regaining tidiness, while over half are keen to transform the vacated room into a guest bedroom. A further third of parents plan to use their son or daughter’s bedroom for storage, while eight per cent of yummy mummies and dapper dads fancy bagging it for a walk-in wardrobe and five per cent would like an in-house gym.
Founder of Zumu, Neil Ouzman, said he was 'surprised to see' that such a high number of parents had considered converting their child’s bedroom into.
Yet with so many families tightening their purse strings at the moment, making the most of space in the house could surely be a sensible move. Unused bedrooms can also serve as offices and studios, but here’s hoping there’s still room for a bed at Christmas!
