Has a room in your home recently become available? The possibilities of what to do with extra space are almost endless, but we've got a few ideas for you. If you need some inspiration, check out our list of five ways to put your bonus room to use.
Office or Study Room
The bonus room can finally be the complete home office you've always wanted if you work from home. Instead of having a desk tucked away in the corner somewhere, a real home office lets you stretch out and have a place to store and organize your business and personal documents.
Or you can turn it into a catch-all study room for the adults to work and the kids to do their homework and studies. At the least, it can be a quiet room for everyone to use to work or relax in.
Gym or Yoga Studio
Are you sick of paying monthly fees to go to a crowded fitness center across town? Skip the crowds and set up a home gym or even a yoga studio in your bonus room. Even if your bonus room is on the second floor, it's perfectly safe for a home gym. If you want a more relaxing atmosphere, turn it into a yoga studio instead! All you need is some yoga mats, reed diffusers, calming scents, and relaxing décor.
Is there a gamer in your home? Make the bonus room a private escape for fun with a game room! Whether you or someone else in the house loves to game, a game room gives them their own space to focus and have fun. Stock the room with gaming chairs, high-tech accessories, and a state-of-the-art TV for the ultimate gaming experience!
If you've got an aspiring musician in the home or you want to pick up one of your old hobbies again, a music studio can be a great addition to your home. You can even set up a recording studio for audio mixing and recording. If you want to go all out, soundproof the walls so whoever is using the studio can get loud without disturbing the rest of the household.
Who doesn't love movies? Make the room something for the whole household to enjoy with a home theater! It doesn't take much to turn a room into a theater; all you need is a couple of comfy chairs, a big-screen TV or projector, and a popcorn machine! A home theater can also attract possible guests if you're considering using your home as an Airbnb.
Those are just a few ways to put your home's bonus room to use, but there are plenty of other ways, too! Which one will you choose?
