4 Spare Room Ideas To Make The Most Of Your Space
If you’re trying to make your home more modern, you need to think about what you can do with that spare room.
Right now, it could be doing its best impression of post-air raid tableaux, but it can’t stay like this forever. Not only will finding something for the room help you make the most of your space, but it will also help you feel better about your home.
Here are a few ideas to put your spare room to good use.
A Place to Work
You’ve probably spent much of the last year working from home anyway. However, with uncertainty over when you’re going back to the office, you might not have thought it beneficial to invest in a proper home office. Instead, you’ve spent time on the sofa or worked at the kitchen table. These are decent substitutes, but a home office is much better for you.
Compared to working on the sofa, your home office will be better for your productivity and your posture. You’ll be able to create a space that motivates you, and you’ll be free of distractions to help you get on with your day.
Another popular option for your spare room is to create a fitness space. When people think of a home gym, they expect expensive renovations, but it doesn’t need to be like this. It’s possible to create an affordable home gym with basic yet effective equipment. You don’t necessarily need a treadmill or Stairmaster. Instead, all you need are some free weights, a weight bench, and enough space for other types of exercises. When everything is set up, there’s no excuse for not staying in shape.
A Hobby Home
If you’re someone who spends more money than they should on their favorite hobbies, creating a hobby room for your Lego, coin collection, or model trains is a great way to prove to your partner that it’s not a fleeting passion. Instead, it’s here to stay.
If you have the space to set up tables and create scenes for your hobbies, you’ll be able to put more time and effort into it without cluttering up the living room. This will be your sanctuary away from the chaos of your family, so make the most of it.
Fun for All
Of course, you don’t need to restrict your family from using the spare room if you don’t want to. You can use the spare room to create a family fun room. Here, you can install screens, game consoles, table football, or whatever the space allows for. If your kids aren’t old enough to get the most from this, creating a playroom that has no rules (okay, nearly no rules) will give them a chance to express themselves without worrying about writing all over your freshly painted walls, too.
It’s your space, and you can do what you want with it. But, if you’re struggling to work out what your spare room can become, consider these options to make your space more functional and more fun. Whether you need a place to work, to work out, or to play, there are plenty of possibilities to think about.
