Many of us have one – a spare room in the house that we don’t do anything with. Maybe it is a bedroom but you don’t often have people over to stay or it is just a dumping ground where boxes and other clutter has started to stack up. So, why not get creative and transform that room into somewhere that you can use and enjoy? If you are looking for a few ideas for what you could do with the space, this guide is here to give you a helping hand.
Probably one of the most simple things you could do is create a reading room environment. All you really need is a comfortable chair, a small side table with a lamp, and, of course, a bookshelf stacked with some of your favourites! If you have a window with a nice view, it makes sense to position the chair so it is facing in this direction so you can enjoy the scenery every now and again. As for decoration, you can keep it nice and simple.
If you are a video game addict, you can set yourself up with your favourite console, a big TV and a stack of games and you are all ready to go! Alternatively, if you are converting a bigger space like an attic or a basement, you could bring in some real-life games such as ping pong, table football or air hockey. Complete the room with by creating a private bar with a fridge of drinks and some bar stools with backs. What could be better?
Fun Zone for Kids
Similar to the games room but for kids, if you are sick of toys getting all over the house, it makes sense to contain them all in one place. Not only this, your kids have their very own space and they can have their day in how they want it decorated, giving them the opportunity for their imaginations to run wild. Of course, it may get very expensive if you take all their suggestions so you will have to keep everything under control!
If you are a musician or have one in the house, having a private place where they can practice is a great thing to create. When it comes to the decoration, you will be looking to soundproof the area as much as possible with rugs, window treatments and upholstered furniture so that the whole house isn’t disturbed!
Office or Studio
A room of any size can be converted into a home office, and this is the ideal solution if you are a freelancer or you run your own business. Alternatively, if you are an art enthusiast and have a room that is bursting full of natural light, you could create your own studio environment.
These are just a few of the creative ways that you can really make the most of your spare room and transform it into a space that is both useful and enjoyable.
