Has Your Spare Room Become Your Store Room

Having an extra room is often viewed as a luxury many do not possess. But when the room lacks purpose, it becomes more of a curse than a blessing. The spare rooms are often turned into storerooms. These are the doors we close when people come over to prevent them from seeing a monstrous eyesore of hoarded items, broken or disused objects and obsolete gadgets. 

A spare room holds so much more potential beyond a place strewed with junk. Here are a couple of ways for you to breathe new life into these cluttered spaces. 

Home office
An office space is a useful addition to any home, especially in the new normal, where many employees are still working from home as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Equip the room with a proper desk, comfortable chair, computer, printer and a shelf to store your files. This allows you to complete your work with minimal distractions, even while working from home. 

 

Mini library
Bookworms can rejoice with this home feature. Ever dreamt of having a sanctuary of your own? With fitted floor-to-ceiling shelves, a cozy chair and adequate lighting so that you can relax and unwind with a cup of coffee and your favourite book in hand. Additionally, it will be a good place for children to use as a study area.

Home theatre 
If you are a big-time movie buff, turn your messy storeroom into a home theatre. With a big flat-screen TV or projector, surround-sound system and a comfy sofa set and you are ready for movie nights. Throw in snug recliners and beanbags for that extra dash of coziness. 

 

Walk-in closet
Are your clothes taking up too much space in your room or lying all over the floor? Turn that spare room into a luxurious walk-in closet. With built-in cupboards to organize your clothes, a vanity mirror and racks for shoes, you can easily give this room a new visage.

 

Game room 
An aficionado of games knows that the worst place to duel friends and family to a game of UNO or Jenga is the dining table. They are usually too small or the seating is uncomfortable. A designated room just for games allows you to indulge your inner child or simply keep children entertained.

Arts and crafts
If you are an artistic person, you can revamp your spare room into an art studio. With unadorned windows to allow an abundance of natural lighting, an easel to place your canvas, and stools to set your equipment on, you are ready to let your creative juices flow. 

 

Home gym
Looking to stay fit from the comfort of your own home? A home gym is perfect for you. Depending on the size of the room and your choice of workout, you can choose what equipment to put in. Having a dedicated space for exercise at home will keep you motivated and help you burn those extra calories off.
