It's been almost 8 months since we did a major decluttering and reorganizing of our home. As the children are really growing up and needed more personal and private space, hubby and I decided to give up our study room to make space for our son's personal bedroom.
We had wanted to do just very few adjustments but inadvertently it has become a rather huge change due to the age of our home. No, we didn't knock down any walls or hacked away our current flooring, the adjustments weren't that obvious on the surface but it was still a very tedious, back breaking and exhausting process nonetheless. (see our "war zone" home).

We gave the children each a bedroom of their own and in replacement of our study room both the hubby and I installed and shared a long desk in our master bedroom (just like the one seen in the kids' room).

Fast forward 8 months later, with all the declutter work completed (Finally!), we now have a more comfortable and spacious living environment. I can't help but sit at the living area admiring the cosy, sans mess home every now and then, as I heave a sigh of contentment. It's also easier for us to have the kids clean up and maintain the tidiness of the home now that we have set the example.
