Custom craft room organizationCraft or Hobby Space

Adding a place to retreat from the hustle and bustle to craft can be useful, especially if it’s part of your business. It’s a great way to efficiently store stamps, craft paper, buttons, fabric, and even the sewing machine. Plus, the new space can provide extra security by keeping certain tools and supplies out of kids hands. Alternatively, you can transform this spare room specifically into a craft room or extra family room for your kids. Keep in mind that spare rooms with hardwood, tile, or vinyl floors may be best for this purpose, as these flooring materials will be easier to clean.

Office Space

This is an obvious choice, but special office configurations can turn a plain office into a workspace for two. Use your new office as a place for both your kids to work on homework and for your own personal needs. Choose comfortable chairs and try to keep distractions to a minimum in this space. Plenty of lights and storage for books are a great addition.

Another Closet

If you have space, why not go the luxury route? Turn a spare bedroom into another closet, and give you and your spouse your own space. Or it can be used as a place for overflow or out-of-season items. Read on to learn about dedicating it specifically for bags or purses. Using an existing spare room as a closet can help keep costs low as you don’t have to do a lot of construction by building or tearing down walls.

Vanity Room

Transform a small spare room into a vanity area. This will be a perfect area to put on makeup before work or a special occasion. All you need is a generous mirror, custom cabinets, drawers, and a table top to store everything. Dedicating a room for this purpose will also give you a place to store accessories like jewelry, scarves, makeup, and skin care. Be sure to use drawer inserts, cubbies, and bins to keep everything organized.
