3 Ideas for getting the most from your bonus room

by Sue Esposito 09/21/2022

If you're in need of ideas for your bonus room, it helps to consider needed functionality. For example, what do you wish you had more room for in your home? Are there any hobbies or projects you wish you could do more often but don't have the space? By focusing on using a bonus room for a specific purpose, you can avoid letting extra space go to waste. Here are some ideas for turning your bonus room into a functional space:

Craft room or workshop

One idea is to turn your bonus room into a designated space for crafting projects. You can devote specific storage and furnishings to help you stay organized and make sure your supplies are readily available. Furthermore, creating a craft room or workshop gives you space to focus without worrying about pets or small children getting into your tools and supplies.

Home gym

While it's possible to exercise anywhere in your home, having a designated space for it will help keep you focused and motivated. Add some floor mats for stretching and support, along with whatever cardio equipment you might prefer. Turning your bonus room into a home gym means you'll have space for bulkier equipment like treadmills or dumbbell racks. Add a smart TV or Bluetooth speaker system, so you can work out to your favorite music without disturbing the rest of the house.

Music room

If you or anybody in your household plays a musical instrument, turning your bonus room into a music room is an excellent option. By adding simple foam panels to the wall for extra noise-dampening, you can essentially create your very own DIY practice studio. If nobody plays an instrument, you can still use your bonus room as a place to enjoy music. Set up a stereo and surround-sound speakers with comfy seating, and you'll have the perfect musical retreat.
