What to do with a spare bedroom

There are many reasons you may end up with a spare bedroom: your kids might have moved out, you may be in-between roommates or might just have found a great deal on the property.

If you're big on reading and have built up a sizable collection over the years, turning your additional bedroom into a quiet reading room could be the best way to go.

Whatever the reason, you can do something interesting to turn the extra space into a ‘personality-driven’ room. Here are some creative ideas…

A reading room

Nothing feels better than curling up on a couch with a great book after a long workday.

If you're big on reading and have built up a sizable collection over the years, turning your additional bedroom into a quiet reading room could be the best way to go.

You might want to add a desk in your library in case you have some paperwork to deal with or decide to work from home. Bookshelves are also a must, not only for your collection of books but also as a means to block out any noise as they work well to absorb the noise.

A music room

Musicians and music lovers will love this idea - having a room dedicated to listening or recording music is quite the luxury. However, even with the extra cost, setting up the room can be a great investment for your hobby. Soundproofing the room can be done on a small budget.

Musicians, with all their gear, can make great use of the storage space and even set up a display area for their prized instruments. If set up properly, home recording is definitely a possibility as well.

A game room

As any gamer knows, it's entirely normal for things to get a little rowdy when it comes to games. Whether you're watching sports or getting use out of your video game console, having a space dedicated to the ruckus can keep down the noise in your house, and give you a place to entertain guests too.
