Having an extra room is a luxury many people dream of having. If you’ve got it, why not flaunt it? There are plenty of things you can do with a spare room. Think about all the things you enjoy doing. Wouldn’t it be nice to have space just for your hobbies?
Here are four ideas for converting your spare room into something that suits your lifestyle:
Today, more people are working from home either as a part of telecommuting or because their work entails working from homes such as a home-based business, e-business, or freelance. Having a dedicated room just for office work is a great way to create your own professional space. Consider placing a contemporary desk furniture style with ample book or shadow shelves, maybe even a comfy office chair. You may also want to add a stylish window treatment such as Venetian blinds. If you want to convert your space into a glamorous office truly, consider adding a multi-media center, a leather sectional, and perhaps a filing cabinet.
Having a home office will help you have your own special space where you go “to work.”
This is probably the most common idea for a spare room. Guest rooms are great if you have frequent overnight visitors. This enables you and your guest to have your privacy. In addition, you don’t have to run and create space for your guests. Converting your spare room into a guest room can be an elaborate or a simple project. All you require is a cozy bed and bedding, a nightstand, some curtains/blinds, and a mirror.
When was the last time you were able to sit down with a good book and a cup of tea? Reading enables you to engage in lost literary passions. You can get quite creative with your reading nook. Start with the chair. Choose an ultra-luxurious leather recliner. Complement it with a modern furniture table where you can place your tea, book, or cell phone. Don’t forget you also need a space to store all your books! Consider installing a stylish modern bookcase with a few indoor plants like Golden Pothos, Aloe Vera, or English Ivy. Don’t forget the light! A stylish lamp and some overhead lights will transform your spare room into the most stylish and cozy nook.
Perhaps your interests lie in getting physically fit. How about converting your spare room into an exercise or yoga room. This type of conversion is quite simple. Invest in a good yoga mat, some basic exercise equipment such as free weights, an exercise ball, and a skipping rope. You may want a small television set as well if you plan to follow a specific routine. Don’t forget to place a shaggy area rug in the corner so that you can cool down on it after your workout.
