It may be that you find yourself with a spare bedroom as your kids have grown and moved out or perhaps you decided to take advantage of the lull in the property market and buy a house with more space than you need. Whatever your situation you now find yourself with a spare bedroom. This is great when you first move in because you can use the space to store boxes you have not had time to unpack. However, if this space is still being used for storage two years later, it may be time to consider alternative uses. Here are the top 5 ways to maximize use of a spare bedroom.

A Guest Bedroom

The most obvious choice is to use it as a guest bedroom. Put a double bed in the room and a wardrobe and you can create a haven where people can sleep if they stay over at your house. There are some great ways to furnish your guest bedroom that will look stylish and practical too.

An Office

In the past, everyone went into one central office for work, but times are changing. Due to the recent coronavirus pandemic, more and more people are now working from home and it is likely to stay that way in the future too. Now is a great time to convert your spare bedroom into an office. You can create a space that is totally separate from the rest of your house, so it is easy to concentrate but also easy to walk away from when it is time to clock off.

A Gym

You might be full of good intentions, but you often simply run out of time to go to the gym. If you have this facility in your home, you can always find the time to pop in and work out. Whether you have ten minutes to lift some weights or you want to spend the whole evening in there, a home gym can be a great way to use the space. 

A Hobbies Room

Even if working out in your home gym is not really your thing you can still use the room for hobbies. Whether you like to do crafts, paint, or build your own computers, you could utilise this space. You probably have a lot of the equipment you would use anyway if this is your hobby, so creating this space does not need to be expensive.

Sell Up

If none of these idea appeal to you then you could always decide to sell up if you feel your home is too big for your needs. Companies such as Barion Design will help you to create the right ambience to sell up quickly and easily. It may be a lot simpler than you think to find a buyer and purchase a new home.

Hopefully, this has given you some great ideas about how to use your spare bedroom. Now all you have to do is decide which option to go for.
