Continuing on with the second of our three-part series on Bonus Room Options, we look at four more possibilities to turn that extra space in your home into one of the best rooms in the house. We again utilize suggestions from the experts at nader.com and will look at four more ways that you can add a specific area to explore your personal interests…no matter what those may be. Following this article, we will look at our final four Bonus Room Options, in the next posting to our blog.
No Excuses: Bonus Room Options to Increase Strength and Stamina Right at Home
How many of us are always thinking, “I’ve got to get myself in shape?” It sure is easy to find an excuse, however, to not go to the local gym. Am I right? Well, with the next of our Bonus Room Options, there are no more excuses about commuting or not liking to work out at the gym. This is because next on our Bonus Room Options is a home gym.
Now, no one expects a “state-of-the-art” professional athletics team workout facility in your spare room. By a home gym, this idea from our Bonus Room Options can cater to your needs. You may opt for a treadmill or some type of cardio machine. Possibly you would include weights. Other ideas may include mats for yoga. Regardless, whatever you choose, your home gym can be as much or little as you choose. The addition of a mirror on the wall, a television, and a fan or two to keep it cool in your “home gym,” is all you need to get that exercise and put your bonus space to great use, too.
From a “Work” Out to “Play” Time: Bonus Room Options for the Kids!
Ok, so the next of our Bonus Room Options is one that could solve a problem that any young family can relate to. That problem would be clutter…and not just any clutter. Toys, stuffed animals, games, books, and so on…are you following me yet? That’s right, this option is for the little ones, and with a little creativity, your bonus room can be their fun, new playroom.
It is certainly not strange for families with young children to have a designated room for toys and such. As a matter of fact, just ask anyone who has repeatedly stepped on a LEGO their thoughts on this! For one, you keep the clutter that came from your kids in just one room here. Plus, you can also make them a pretty fun room to reflect the things they enjoy most with the decoration here. Most importantly is in when having company over, you can simply keep the door shut. Thus, that mess of toys that you dread picking up again is out of sight.
Color and Creativity Await with the Next Option
Time to let those “creative juices” flow with our next entry from the Bonus Room Options. This can be a room that is enjoyed by all ages of members of your household, as you turn the room into an art studio. Again, like the “home gym” spoken of earlier, you can go as “in” or as simple as you’d like on this one…the choice is yours!
That being said, with the addition of a few easels, some storage-type units to store art supplies that can be used in the “studio.” Now, an art studio is going to have its “messy moments,” so one option is to replace the floor with a linoleum or vinyl type that looks good and cleans easy. Once again, the possibilities are endless with this project for our Bonus Room Options and would be used not only for leisurely painting or art you work on, but also for the kids’ school projects and the like, too.
A “Twist” on the Bonus Room idea Takes a “Dirty” Turn
This next of our Bonus Room Options is one I’d recommend in a space that there either is or could be a sink, as it could be used in many helpful ways. As a gesture to your resident “green thumb,” or if you simply have an interest in plants or gardening, this option would be a “green” or “gardening” room.
What is a “green” or “gardening” room you ask? Well, it is what it sounds like. It’s a place to complete gardening tasks. Its a room to repot your plants without the need for transporting them for spot to spot. Keep all your gardening tools (soil, pots, spades, etc.) on hand in this room as well. Likewise, utilize that sink to rinse fresh fruits and veggies you pick or to make a centerpiece with your fresh-grown flowers.
Whether You opt to Rest Up, Get Loud, or Just Get Some Work Done. We’ve Got More Ideas From Which You can Choose!
