What To Do With The Spare Bedroom

Posted on

The spare room always gets short shrift when it comes to home design and décor. But when you consider the high cost of real estate — and the shrinking square footage of new homes and condos — that spare room is a valuable asset.

Here are some suggestions we at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture have come up with for what to do with that room so you will want to spend time in it!



Having a home office separate from the rest of the home is a real luxury. The separation allows you to close the door, have privacy, do business calls without distraction. As more and more people work at least part-time from home, it’s increasingly important to have your own space to do this.

Every room needs a focal point and in the home office that would be the desk. Pick one that is the right size for the room, and for the kind and amount of work it must accommodate. If your job involves multiple monitors or lots of paperwork, you will need more surface space as opposed to simply needing room for a laptop. If you use a lot of reference materials, you will need shelving – built-ins save space and pack in a lot of storage. If you have clients come to your home, it will need to be decorated accordingly.


Dressing and Make-up Room

In many of today’s condos, the bedrooms are big enough for a bed and side table or two. There’s not really the space for extra clothes and a make-up table. But if you have a spare room, you can take yourself there to get ready for your day.

Also having this extra closet space will save on family feuds – keeping clothes separate is a good tool for peace!


Music Room

Are you an accomplished or aspiring musician? The spare room could be the answer to space and privacy issues – you can safely store your instruments and you can close the space off for better soundproofing. There are multiple ways to sound proof a room to keep your rehearsing out of earshot of others, and can restrict outside noises if you’re setting up your own recording studio.


Guest Bedroom

This can also be used as a spare bedroom! There are a couple of options – designed properly it can accommodate guest sleeping quarters as well as a home office or a music room. It just takes the right kind of furniture – a murphy bed, for example, or a pull out sofa bed. Opt for high quality on the sofa bed so that the mattress is comfortable.

Keep the décor neutral, but in keeping with the rest of your home in terms of colour and texture.


These are just a few ideas for your spare room. But our experts at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture have tons more ideas. Stop by today!
