When you have an extra bedroom, you should take advantage of it to the full extent. All of the extra space can actually be kind of overwhelming. If you have a plan in mind, your extra bedroom can be so much more than a “spare” room. Here’s some ideas to help you jumpstart your imagination on what to do with an extra bedroom in your home. The great thing about these suggestions is that these rooms can be used day or night for specific purposes. Spa This sounds extravagant to have an in-home spa, but really, it’s possible. If you often hire professionals to give you a massage or a facial, many will actually come to your home. Your extra bedroom can become your private spa room in an instant! Thinking Room The health benefits of meditation are numerous. Having a room that can be a sanctuary for clearing your head, meditating, or just simply making decisions is a great use of an extra bedroom. There will be no other room in your home as quiet and as peaceful! Keep your favorite comfortable chair in there and enjoy the silence and solitude for clear thinking. Reading Room Having a reading room in your home is a classic use of an extra bedroom. If one of your ideas of pleasure is to sit quietly and read, a reading room can be the perfect sanctuary for you. The beauty of a reading room is that the furnishings can be very simple. All you need is simple seating and adequate lighting for a great reading room. A Room For Morning Routines Whether your morning routine is a workout, or simply reading the news with a cup of coffee, having a room to start your day off right is the perfect use of an extra bedroom. Being able to get through your morning routine without any interruptions can help you to set the mood for a great day. You’ll have plenty of room for what you need, be it workout equipment, or a set of a table and chairs. A Toy and Games Room Even adults need some time to have fun. Whether you keep a bunch of board games in this room, install a poker table, or buy some classic arcade games the possibilities are endless when it comes to building a fun room. If you have kids, and don’t have the heart to make an “adults only” room, an extra bedroom can be put to great use if you need a place to store toys and other “kid” things. This can help keep your house a bit neater when the toys are contained. Music Room If there’s a musician or two in the family, a spare room can be put to good use for making music. All of the equipment and supplies can accumulate in the house. Now, there will be a room to keep all of it in. Make sure there’s adequate seating for guests and plenty of outlets available for the musicians to plug in speakers and amplifiers.

Maximizing space in a smaller bedroom and making that room look and feel larger isn’t impossible. These tips wont break the bank or drain months of your time. Here are a few tips to make your small bedroom feel larger: Paint: Use paint colors to your advantage. Light, cool colors and light, cool toned colors are the best for making your room look larger. Use vertical stripes to make your room feel tall. Paint your ceiling a dark color to enhance its larger, taller feel. Furniture: Some pieces of furniture can make your room feel small. Avoid bulky bedframes and instead choose smaller, more delicate looking bedframes. The smaller bedframe will also take up less space in your room. For added perception of extra square footage, leave a few inches of space between your furniture and the wall. It will create the illusion of spaciousness as it makes the room look more open. Wall-Mounted Nightstand: Instead of having bedside tables on each side of the bed, use floating shelves or wall mounted nightstands. It will make the room feel and look more open since more floor space will be seen. Multipurpose Furniture: Storage beds work wonders. They create additional storage without adding any additional furniture. There are storage beds with under the bed storage and headboard storage. Mirrors: Mirrors create the illusion of more space. This could be just by having a larger wall-mounted mirror in the room or adding floor to ceiling mirrors, which will dramatically increase the perception of a larger space. Wall-Mounted Lighting: Having wall-mounted lighting aids in avoiding the issue of clutter on tables and shelves. It will draw the eye up instead of down at cluttered areas. With just a few simple updates and some new furniture you can create the illusion of a larger bedroom. If you are looking to make some smaller updates then start with the cosmetic tips and move onto the larger ones when the time comes. Implementing just one tip will get you on your way to a bedroom with a grander feel.

Is your bedroom in need of a slight makeover?  Surprisingly enough, many people don't spend too much time thinking about how their bedroom looks.  How many times have you been on a tour of a friend's new home, and the tour stops short of their sleeping area?  If you don't want to fall into the trap of feeling like your bedroom isn't a "show off" room, then take a few steps to jazz it up a bit. By paying a little attention to a few areas in your bedroom, you can leave that door open with no shame. New Bedding - Depending on your sleeping preferences, your bed may well be the biggest piece of furniture in your home.  Coincidentally, your bedding may also be one of the largest decorations in your home.  Do you like your bedding?  Does it match your home and personality well?  If it leaves you wanting, then consider outfitting your bed with a new bedding set.  With this one improvement, the entire mood of your bedroom can change.  If you can manage to find curtains or drapes that complement your bedding, it will tie your bedroom together in a big way. Floors - Bedrooms may have the least amount of floorspace visible, but that doesn't mean that they should be neglected.  Consider buying a decorative rug for your room.  Or, if you're feeling adventurous, consider installing a new carpet or flooring.  The sky is the limit here, and any change made is likely to be an improvement. Laundry - Piles of unfolded or dirty laundry can be an eyesore. Even a visible laundry hamper is enough to be a distraction.  Consider outfitting your closet door with a hanging laundry basket, or instituting a "no dirty laundry in the bedroom" rule for yourself. Lighting - If you rely solely on overhead lighting in your bedroom, then consider buying a lamp or two.  Lamps will serve to highlight your furniture, as well as create a more relaxing environment.
