What Do You Do With an Extra Room?

Now that you have a spare room, it's time to figure out what to do with the space. There are so many things you can do! You can turn it into an office, a guest bedroom or even just attic storage for all your holiday decorations. The possibilities are endless and you don't have to spend a lot of money either. I'm going to outline some ideas below about how you can use this extra space in your home!

Guest Bedroom 

When you're looking to make your spare room into a guest bedroom, there are many things that should be considered. First of all it needs to have the perfect combination between comfort and luxurious style in order for guests to feel at home when they visit; this means making sure everything is well-lit or lit up nicely with some light sconces (wall lights will also do). Within these elements go even smaller details like adding throw pillows onto furniture which give off great color schemes - think about what colors might appeal most aesthetically as well! A successful hotel-like environment doesn't just happen by chance though--think through every detail carefully so their stay won’t feel fleeting but relaxed instead!

Office Space

A home office is a great investment if you're looking to free up some space in your house. The average person spends about three hours per day working, so it makes sense that an extra room would be helpful - especially one with its own specific purpose! A dedicated workspace gives people who work remotely or from the comfort of their living rooms somewhere quiet where they can store everything necessary for doing business away from prying eyes (like computers) as well as providing teenagers with safe haven during study sessions without being too distracting around adults' more important tasks like watching Sunday football games on TV.

You’ve been wanting to do something with that spare room, but don't know what it should be. Why not ask the kids? They'll love having their own space and will likely contribute a lot of ideas for decorating! This playroom could even double up as an educational area-perfect if you're homeschooling your children or want some extra desk space at night where they can work on homework without disturbing others in this already busy house of yours.

Man Cave

Despite its outdated moniker, a man cave remains one of the most popular guises for a spare room; essentially a chilled-out space to relax in, or somewhere to share with friends when the living room is occupied.
