You might not have any idea what to do with a spare room in your home. Perhaps you’re running low on storage space and can repurpose the room to store items and make the other rooms less crowded. However, there are other, more creative ways to use that spare room to enrich your home life. Here are 5 ideas for repurposing that spare room in your home.
This idea is particularly suited for rooms located near an exit to your home. Having a mudroom is perfect for storing all of the items that are used outside, including umbrellas, rain boots, jackets, and sports equipment. Install a wall unit with some shelving, drawers, and some hanging rods to complete this pragmatic spare room upgrade.
Children will love having their own dedicated playroom, and it’s a great idea to provide a dedicated spot for them to play and learn, while keeping the clutter confined to one space. Consider updating the look of the spare room with a fresh coat of paint, new carpeting, and wire toy storage.
3. Home Office
If you work from home on a regular basis, converting your spare room into a home office can help you stay productive. Consider a desk or computer workstation, along with a file cabinet for paper storage, to give yourself an ideal space to work in a private and quiet environment.
4. Home Library
Bookworms everywhere rejoice when they see a spare room in their home – it means they can make their dreams of having their own home library a reality! Don’t just stop at installing shelves though – put in a reading desk or comfortable chairs to make your home library the ultimate reading oasis!
5. Guest Bedroom
The guest bedroom is a classic choice for homeowners with a spare room. Whether you decide to go with a simple twin bed and nightstand or a lavish king-size bed with full furnishings is really up to you and your budget! Either way, you can give your guests a comfortable place to stay when they come to visit you and your family.
