Have you got a spare bedroom that you want to put into more use? Are you unsure about what to do with a spare bedroom? Has the pandemic driven out a nice tenant and left you with a bedroom and no ideas for what you can do with it?

1. What to Do With a Spare Bedroom: Inspiring Craft Room or Art Studio
This first idea is for creatives and artists who want to experience what it’s like to have a studio. Turn your spare bedroom into an art studio. Put the bed in storage and bring in your aisles and paints.
If you prefer to make handicrafts, then add shelves for your materials instead. Don’t forget to transfer your mood board or inspiration board. You can also create a motivation wall rather than keep it on a small board.
For rooms like this, lighting is an essential factor. Make sure that you leave the windows unblocked to give the room natural lighting and airflow.
You may also want to install lamps for those cloudy or snowy days when the sun can’t reach you that well.
If the room is lacking shelves, add some. Display your best works on them. You can also keep the walls open for hanging your artworks.
Do you like to create costumes or cosplay props and items? Add your crafting table and sewing machine in the room. Use the empty closet space to hang your costumes and the shelves for cosplay items.
2. Peaceful Space for Wellbeing
Are you in need of an at-home yoga space? Do you want a little gym or workout space at home? The spare bedroom may be the solution to your problem.

Once it’s clear, add your yoga or workout equipment, and you’re good to go.
3. Quiet Music Room or Recording Studio
Are you thinking of creating a YouTube channel where you’ll showcase your musical talent? Do you want a quiet space where you can write your songs and create music? Do you like to read your self-made horror or romance stories out loud and record them?
If you’re looking for a room where you can do all or one of these, look only to the spare bedroom in the home. The changes you can bring into the room don’t need to be drastic at first.
You can start with small things, like bringing your instruments into the room. Later, add your other equipment. As you turn the room into a music studio, make sure you also rearrange the furniture so it suits your purposes.
You can switch the bed out with a sofa bed where it’ll be more comfortable to play the guitar or record…
