Many of us are lucky to have a spare room. But are we using it to its full potential?

Or not sure it’s worth the hassle? Let us inspire you with 4 Practical Spare Room ideas to Update Your Space!

Guest room

The most common use for a spare room, a guest room is ideal if your regularly have friends and family staying over. You’ll want to make your guest room feel as inviting as another room in your home.

As a guest room tends to be one of the smaller rooms in the house, try to declutter and be savvy with storage to make the most of the space. A cleverly sized bed like the Hector double bed is ideal for smaller spaces, or you could choose a bed with storage, like the Amalfi, so you have extra space to store items such as bedding and coats when not in use.

Keep the scheme neutral and add homely touches such as chunky pillows, throws and nightlights to make your guest feel fully accommodated. Have a well thought out and considered guest room will also be beneficial when it comes to selling your home, as it show potential buyers how they can maximise and use the extra space.

Home Office

If you work from home, then a separate workstation is essential. It’ll allow you to separate work and home life and keep things in order. Home offices are also great for sorting some life admin or simply as a quiet place to read and relax.

A desk and chair will provide a space for you to sit at your computer or take notes. As we spend long periods of time sat at our desks, comfort is key. So opt for supportive chair and a practical sized desk: enough surface space to work at but one that won’t take up too much room.

Hobby Room

Are you into your fitness? How about arts and crafts? Or do you simply enjoy the company of a good book? Whatever your enjoy, see if you can utilise your spare room by making your own hobby area.  

A compact TV unit is ideal for creating a games or movie room. The compact size means there’s enough room for some storage without it being taking up too much of your space. Add an occasional chair and stackable size tble for maximum versatility and comfort.

Walk in Wardrobe

A walk in wardrobe may seem like a distant dream, designed only for mansions and Disney princesses. But in reality, it’s far easy to create than you may think. Using desks, sideboards and other clever storage solutions, you can quickly turn your room into the ultimate storage space.
