Online Furniture Retailer Offers Tips On Designing for Older Children Living At Home

Brooklyn-based furniture retailer gives advice on how to accommodate living space and workspace for stay-at-home teens and college students.

Online PR News – 04-May-2012 – New York, NY – As children enter their final years in high school or when they decide to commute to college from home, their bedrooms have to serve two purposes,” says Alex Yankovskiy, owner of United Furniture Group (" target="_blank" class="highlight_link" rel="nofollow">, a Brooklyn-based furniture retailer that sells brand name furniture at rock-bottom prices, both at its New York store and online. “Of course, children still need to be comfortable in their private space, but that space often becomes their official workspace as well.”

According to Yankovskiy, the key to creating a comfortable and functional workspace/living space is to avoid clutter.

“If a room appears cluttered, it usually has too much furniture for its size and proportions,” Yankovskiy explains. “For anyone that needs to create a work space that doubles as a sleeping space, it is critical that it is decorated in such a way that will maintain a high level of comfort and efficient productivity.”

Yankovskiy says that, particularly when dealing with small rooms, it is a good idea to consider investing money in new furniture.

“By graduating to furniture that is appropriate for the room’s new dual use, it will become increasingly apparent that it is money well spent,” he says, “because, in the end, you are creating a room that is more spacious and practical.”

One place to start the reorganization process, Yankovskiy says, is in the closet.

“If you can locate your clothing to another area of the house, or reorganize and dispose of any unnecessary items,” he explains, “the closet can really become a useful space, whether for an additional bookshelf or a small filing cabinet.”

At the very least, Yankovskiy says, a redesigned closet should at least offer the ability to locate an existing dresser or other piece of furniture that may be taking up valuable space in the bedroom.

“Another thing to consider,” Yankovskiy says, “is utilizing small-scale, space-saving office furniture pieces that will help in creatively reworking the space when having to think outside the box.”
