Having a spare room in the home is rarely a problem, other than trying to decide what to do with it. It’s important to make the most of the space you have, so here are a few ingenious ideas to take advantage of your extra room.
A home office is almost a staple in every home by now. But if you are still working on converting an extra room into one, add a computer desk and comfortable office chair. If you keep files in your home, a filing cabinet may be useful as well.
This is the most common use for a spare room in the home, but make it one that will be enjoyable. Add a comfortable bed with cozy blankets and pillows that will give your guests the feeling of a home away from home.
Are there any bookworms in your home? Line the spare room with bookshelves and add a comfortable spot to sit with a side table. Bean bag chairs and fun lighting will help younger readers enjoy the space while studying.
A playroom is extremely beneficial for families with younger children. Between this and their bedrooms, the main areas of the house are more likely to stay clutter-free. Give kids a designated space to store their toys so that cleanup is quick and easy when guests are over.
Is your regular walk-in closet still too small? Add a few clothing racks to the spare room and take it up a notch with a vanity table and lounge chair. A large mirror is a necessity as well to make sure each outfit is perfect.
A theater-style living room may not always be appealing for everyday life, but it’s easy to transform a spare room into a larger viewing space. Line up a few comfortable recliners and find a projector to screen movies and shows onto the wall.
Spare rooms don’t have to be used for storage and hoarding. These are a few fun ways to think outside the box (or walls, in this case) and transform another part of your home!
