Are you downsizing? Have a spare bedroom? Have more space than you know what to do with? Here is some inspiration to help you turn that extra room into a functional space!


If you work from home, love to browse the web or love online shopping, an office is a great option for you. All you need is a desk, chair and bookshelf to host all of your office essentials. Another great option for an office space is a comfy chair and lamp for a cosy reading corner. If you have guests who visit frequently consider including a day bed in your office decor.

Craft Room

If you’re a hobbyist, don’t hold back on transforming your extra space into your dream project room. For the ultimate crafting experience, place a large table in the centre of the room so you can access all sides of your project. Install bright lights and beautiful artwork around the room for some extra flare. Install shelving to showcase your tools and projects and use the closet for additional storage of larger items.


Playrooms are a great option if you have children or if children are often in your home. They provide a place for all toys and games instead of all over the floor of the house. Place play mats on the ground and include a small table and chairs for homework, games and other fun projects. Have a good storage system in place for arts and crafts, toys, games, and more to ensure this space stays clean and tidy.

At-home gym

Put those exercise machines to good use and give yourself an at-home gym. Install a TV to watch your favourite workout videos or shows while breaking a sweat. Weights, yoga mats, exercise balls and a water cooler are other great options for this room. If you love working out but don’t like the commitment of a gym, this is a great option for you.

The options are almost endless when it comes to transforming your extra room into a usable space for you and your family.
