Home and Garden

Guest room

Of course, you can always add the traditional guest room. You can work the concept into areas such as craft rooms as well, such as with a pullout sofa or Murphy bed to accommodate visitors.

Greenhouse

Plants and gardening can be a relaxing hobby, and an indoor greenhouse can be just the ticket for all-seasons gardening.

Relaxation room

Rather than stimulating activities or entertainment, you can use that room to create a relaxing, peaceful environment to decompress and find serenity.

Themed entertainment room

You can turn that spare room into something more than just a game room or TV-watching space with an extensive themed remodel. The options here are as broad as your imagination itself: a 1950s-inspired diner with jukebox, wood-paneled English pub with leather stools pushed up to a custom bar or a tribute to the movies or sports teams that drive your passions.

Walk-in closet

Convert the extra space into the walk-in closet of your dreams. Depending on the complexity of the closet you'd like to create, you can complete the task with a few supplies from the local home improvement store in a weekend. You can also hire a contractor to create a completely custom design with all the bells and whistles.

Home gym

The home gym is a classic in spare room usage for a reason. A home gym can be anything from free weights and yoga mats to a full-scale setup of treadmills, weight benches and other exercise equipment.
