Having an extra room in the house is one of the most exciting prospects of being a homeowner. There are so many ways to use the space to really enhance your home so don’t let it go to waste as a storage room. As you try to figure out how to use the room, figure out what your priorities are.
Turn it into a Guest Bedroom
According to Your Home and Garden, if you have an extra room hanging out in your house, creating an extra guest bedroom is always a great idea especially if you have a lot of guests staying with you frequently. As you think about how to set up your space, think carefully about how you want to accommodate guests. If you have guests come frequently who have a baby, make sure you’ll have space for a crib. If you want the room to be multi-functional, make sure you have room for a desk where you can do your DIY-ing.
Create an Entertainment Room
Having an entertainment room is another great way to use an extra room. Typically, this option tends to result in the most use of the space itself. Figuring out how to create the right entertainment room for you will depend a lot on the size of the room and your goals.
If you prefer board games, make sure you have great storage space and a great table to play. If you love movies, make sure you have an awesome pulldown screen and great audio. According to Pierce Design + Build, your theater room requires a custom design that incorporates the latest audio technology.
Turn it into a Home Office
According to SnackNation, one of the best ways you can use an extra room is to create a home office out of it. For a lot of people, working from home has become a standard part of life for a while now and having a home office makes working from home much easier. Having a separate space for work allows you to mentally separate work and life a little bit more even though you are still working from home.
Knowing how to transform an empty room in your home takes a lot of careful thought. Ultimately, you won’t be able to use it for everything so don’t try to make it a workout, entertainment, guest room all in one. Pick the things that are most important to you and try to craft a cohesive space around those.
