How to Use the Extra Room in Your House

One of the greatest things about moving from an apartment to a house is having so much more space. However, sometimes you might have more rooms than you know what to do with.

If you’re struggling to figure out what to do with an extra room, here are a couple of ideas you should consider.

Turn it Into a Playroom

If you have children, you’re constantly fighting the battle of bedtime. A shift can occur when the designated play space for kids is outside of their sleeping area.

According to Advantage Contracting, if you can designate a playroom, all toys and school-oriented items can live in that room. This leaves a space with few distractions, which helps children to be able to sleep.

If you have several children of similar ages, them sharing a bedroom space for sleeping and another for playing might bring closer harmony than having separate rooms.

Create a Study

More and more, a family needs a peaceful place to both relax and delve into reading and study.

You can sequester away a desk and computer if you want to, of course, but you can fit much more in the area than that. You could also include things like a comfortable chair and a bookshelf. According to RST Brands, you should add plenty of light to your room, including a desk lamp for reading.

This provides a peaceful place to develop a passionate love of books or to do any work on a computer.

Invest in a Hobby Lounge

If during the pandemic all of your family’s hobbies have spread throughout your home, having a designated space for a range of hobbies by all family members might be a great investment. If you like to sew and craft, having a space for this is magnificent.

If your family enjoys puzzles, a table can be designated. Some families call this a “Genius Project” room, where all members of the family, large and small (with supervision), can use materials to create new ideas and projects.

Regardless of what you decide to do with your extra room, finding a use for it is important! Your home is made to work for you, not you only for your home.

Nothing has taught families about that more than the past year of semi-seclusion. Make sure every square inch is used lovingly in your home, and it will serve you well!
