Spare rooms can often become the place where all the random junk around your home gravitates to, such as books, old furniture, kids car seats, clothes your family have given you that you pretend to like… and dead bodies (sorry, that’s the basement!)
It’s time to take back your spare room with some of these great ideas.
#1 Transform your spare room into a oversized walk-in wardrobe!
This will appeal to all the women, like myself, who salivated over the awe inspiring white closet ensconced in the penthouse apartment Carrie Bradshaw shared with Big in the original Sex in The City Movie.
I’d suggest having your spare room wall fitted with ceiling racks and have a multi tiered open storage area for shoes underneath, so you can choose and accessorise an outfit in minutes! You can even create a sitting room with the rest of your space by installing a love seat or chaise lounge and a coffee table, as well as some plants and your favourite art pieces.
#2 Install a window seat
A window seat is a great way to overhaul your spare room, as it offers numerous storage benefits, along with being the ideal place to sit and enjoy some stolen time away from the kids — I mean quietly reading, or just relaxing with a tea or coffee. Not only is a window seat aesthetically appealing, it also makes optimal use of the available space, as you can have several storage boxes or baskets strategically placed underneath.
#3 Sofa beds are a spare room necessity
Having a sofa bed in your spare room is a no-brainer. When you have guests over, your spare room becomes an additional bedroom. It is the ideal place to stash the in-laws, out of sight — out of… you know the rest! Then after they leave and your sanity returns, you can turn it into your office, lounge or sitting room — whatever makes more sense.
#4 Vertical storage is essential
Vertical storage hides many flaws, so it is ideal for overhauling a poorly used spare room. There are many stylish and functional varieties of vertical storage to turn your spare room aka junkyard into a flawless “Home and Garden” interior design masterpiece.
