5 Excellent Ideas for That Empty Spare Room


If you happen to have a room in your home that is either sitting empty or slowly gathering all of the clutter that doesn't belong anywhere else, consider putting it to good use. With a little help from our Lake of the Ozarks luxury furniture store, you can turn that useless area into a wonderful place that you love spending time in. John Elliott Interiors has 5 excellent room ideas for you today that may be perfect for your home.

Game Room
Center the room around a nice, sturdy game table that can easily host poker night with the gang or game night with the family at a moment's notice. A fun and casual interior design is perfect for this area because it's a room meant for play. You'll want to have shelving to hold your board games, cards, poker chips, and other gaming supplies. The chairs should be comfortable enough to sit in for an extended period of time and there should be plenty of seating for all. A table for holding drinks and snacks is a great idea too. 

Instead of making it a room to play games, you could make it a place to watch games instead. Plan the décor around your favorite sport or team, add some comfortable recliners with cup holders, and a couple of side tables for snacks and the remote control. The entertainment center will be the focal point of the room, and a big TV and great sound system is a must.

Home Theater
If you're more into movies than sports, turn that spare room into a home theater instead. You will still want room for a giant-screen TV and premium sound system. A row of recliners offers movie theater-style seating or a large wraparound sofa is perfect for allowing a lot of people to sit together comfortably. You'll want to have plenty of storage to hold a large selection of your favorite movies. Proper lighting is important, and if there are a lot of windows in the room, blackout curtains are a good idea.

Line the walls with bookshelves and place a few comfortable seating options around the room that you can enjoy curling up in to escape into a good book. A small desk in one corner is a nice addition. This is another room where proper lighting is important, but instead of dimming or blacking it out like in a home theater, you will want to open up the room to lots of natural light and a variety of different levels of lighting.

Craft Room
Use your spare room as a space to let your creative talents out. A sturdy table to work on can be the centerpiece. You will want lots of cabinets with plenty of storage to house all of your supplies. Depending on the type of crafting you prefer, stools are usually a good option for seating. A bookcase for magazines and books full of ideas could be nice too.

Home Office
Hide away work, bills, and the more serious stuff in your life from the rest of your house in a home office. A nice desk is a must and if you will be spending a lot of time on a computer in there, an ergonomic chair is best. Storage with doors helps to keep paper clutter and office supplies out of sight yet neatly stored and organized. This is a great room for a beautiful wall clock to keep you on schedule in a beautiful way.

Those are just a few ideas off the top of our heads. Look to your hobbies, activities, lifestyle, and favorite things to inspire the transformation of your spare room. Once you have an idea of what you'd like to do with it, let our interior designers at the Lake of the Ozarks help you to turn that idea into a reality.
