It really is nice when you have a spare room in your home that now gives you extra space to do whatever you want with. You now have the challenge of deciding what is the best use of this space. There are many ways that you can transform your spare room.
Chances are you may have wanted to keep it as a guest room but you have to weigh out whether this is the wisest choice for this valuable space. You may want to give it to the kids for a room of their own depending on their age. For the younger ones this could be a play room, and for the older ones it could be a hangout room where they can entertain their friends.
If you are looking to make a little bit of extra money you could consider renting out the spare room as a guest room. This may be ideal for visitors that are only going to be in your area temporarily.

This is a great way from keeping the clutter of an office out of the rest of the home. If you’ve always wanted a walk-in closet that would allow you to utilise it as a dressing room, then consider using your spare room for this purpose. You could certainly set up some portable racks for your clothing, and leave enough space for a few cupboards and perhaps a dressing table.
