Spare rooms can become some of the most attractive spaces in your house. Creating a unique space in what was once a room designated “spare” can not only increase the value of your house it can increase the comfort and livability of your home. Consider these three ideas for renovating a spare room.
A light-filled office is an obvious choice for dedicated worker-bee types or creatives working from home. Install picture windows that keep light and inspiration pouring in, and decorate with cool neutrals like pale blues, greens, and greys, to instill a sense of calm while nurturing productivity.
Playrooms are excellent value boosters in neighborhoods replete with small children. Attract potential family buyers by renovating your spare room and giving it distinctly playful features. A raised play-stage complete with velvet curtains or a reading nook with a built-in lounge area are both relatively simple DIY projects that can make your home even more attractive to buyers with kiddos.
Guest bedrooms are the perennial choice for spare rooms. but consider features to make guests feel even more at home. Larger closets with additional storage, creative window treatments and trendy wall colors like millennial pink and deep teal can all make a guest room inviting and modern.
