If you’ve been looking around your home lately and feeling like you could use some extra space, building on an addition is a great way to do so without having to pack up and move to a bigger house. But what sort of addition do you want? You could add space on to an existing room – but your home’s layout will not always allow for that. If you’re not sure what type of addition is right for you, consider a bonus room! What can I do with a bonus room, you ask? There are plenty of different things they can be used for. Find out all about bonus rooms in this week’s blog!
The Many Uses of a Bonus Room
The possibilities are endless when it comes to designing your bonus room – limited only by your imagination and your budget! Check out these unique uses for your very own bonus room:
- Home theater
Sure, you could go with a family room as your bonus room – but why not take it up a notch and turn it into a home theater? Splurge and get that giant plasma screen TV you’ve always wanted and furnish the room with comfy couches, a mini-fridge, and a microwave for popcorn!
- Home gym
Why pay for a gym membership when you can bring the gym to you? A bonus room turned into a home gym allows you the convenience of working out from home, but still keeps the sometimes unsightly gym equipment out of the eyes of guests. Consider outfitting one of the walls with a mirror to allow you to watch your form!
- Game room
Whether you have kids or you’re just a kid at heart, everyone is sure to love a game room. If you have the space, put in a pinball machine, pool table, or ping pong table, or just keep it simple with shelving filled up with board games and supplies.
- Home office
If you work from home a lot, it can be hard to find a quiet space to get away and focus. A home office can be just what you need to bring back the productivity! A comfortable desk and chair is a must, and bookshelves and artwork can provide a classy and modern look without too many distractions.
