5 Tips for Turning Your Spare Room into Your Dream Room

Floor plan

Looking for tips on turning your spare room into your dream room? You’re in the right place! Homes typically don’t come in the one-bedroom variety, so you might find yourself with a spare bedroom or two.

It’s time to let your imagination run wild!

Start with a Vision Board
Whether it’s magazine clippings, Pinterest boards, or too many bookmarked links on your browser, having a vision for how you plan on turning your spare room into your dream room is essential before starting out.

The vision process isn’t the time to be realistic. Dream big!

Don’t Limit Yourself to a Guest Room

Many people think that their spare room automatically needs to be used as a guest bedroom – but that’s not the case.

While having a guest room is a great amenity in any home (and you can even rent it out using a home sharing app if you’d like!), there are plenty of other fun options for your spare room.

Different Spare Room Options

Here are few ideas to get you started on turning your spare room into your dream room:

  • Home Office
  • Gym
  • Spa
  • Dressing Room
  • Home Theater
  • Hobby Room

Make a Plan

What color palette are you leaning towards? How much money are you planning to spend? What are the measurements of the room, including the doorway? How many windows are there?

These are just a few essential questions to ask yourself before you begin turning your spare room into your dream room. After the vision stage, it’s important to plan the specifics of your project so you can make your dream into a reality.

Give Yourself Time

When you are completely redoing a room yourself, it can take time. Don’t feel pressured to make your transformation project a one Saturday thing.

While your family will surely appreciate it if the house isn’t a construction zone for months on end, just be sure to keep the mess contained and finish your project on a schedule that makes it fun – not stressful.
