Good Questions: Making Room For a Toddler

Pin it button big

On this entry, LBB asked a question that we thought deserved its own thread : "How old is too old and how small is too small? We are 50 and 53 in 550 sq ft on the LES and seriously considering adoption of a toddler/pre-schooler. A shared bedroom seems the only possibility for us. Thoughts on this, please! We own our co-op and adore our apartment..high ceilings, on a private park, great neighbors, great place for kids. Has anyone ever done a re-do of our sq footage to accomodate a young child? Any input most welcome!"

Well, speaking as an adoptive parent, we believe that you are never too old to love somebody and parent them. And at Apartment Therapy, there is no such thing as 'too small'!

Anybody done a remodel of an apartment this size (or smaller) to accommodate an infant or toddler? Shared bedroom? Move some walls around and reconfigure? What would you do, or what did you do?
