Creative Ways to Use Your New Spare Room

You might be an Empty Nester, a parent of college-aged kids or a lucky new homeowner, and now you’re wondering what you <em>really</em> want to do with all the free space in that new spare room.</br></br>There’re always the usual fallbacks: crafts room, spare bedroom, junk room, etc. But, there’s a good chance you’ll be as disappointed and bored with those choices as your gut is telling you. Think: Do you even <em>like</em> crafts that much? Scrapbooking takes passion, and if you don’t have it now a crafts room won’t prime the pump the way you think it will.</br></br>So, what to do? What are some creative options that are more exciting, but still realistic?</br></br><strong>Music Room</strong></br></br>This actually used to be a thing back in the day. Moneyed bluebloods would dedicate a room to musical pursuits and fill it with instruments so people could jam, which amounted to some pretty wicked chamber music back then.</br></br>Nowadays we call it a studio and it’s still a cool idea. Computers and the Internet make it easier than ever to record beats and learn new instruments; with a little practice, anyway.</br></br><strong>Sitting Room</strong></br></br>Another old-timey classic, you can think of a sitting room as a meditation room that doesn’t require meditation. All you need is a comfy <a title="Living Room Chairs" href="http://www.atgstores.com/furniture/living-room-furniture/living-room-chairs/?linkloc=tn" target="_blank">chair</a>.</br></br><a title="Portable Hammocks" href="http://www.atgstores.com/hammocks/vivere-hammocks-uhsdo9-2-double-hammock-with-steel-stand_g1069070.html" target="_blank"><img class=" wp-image-23638 " title="Portable Hammock" src="http://ourblog.atgstores.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/portablehammock-300x300.jpg" alt="Portable Hammmocks" width="197" height="197" /></a> Or one of these.</br></br>This could be upgraded to a “library” with some shelving and a selection of reading material, but there’s no need to put a label on it. As long as you’re wearing house slippers and a smoking jacket you can call it whatever you want.</br></br><strong>Dark Room</strong></br></br>Making a dark room is probably easier than you think. The hardest part – and most essential aspect – is that you make the room absolutely dark. If you can do that, the rest is just a matter of buying the proper materials and they aren’t really all that expensive.</br></br>Of course, you do have to own a film camera, but even that is a fairly affordable toy these days. The only other thing you need is knowledge and the Internet is having a special on that right now: FREE.</br></br>These are just a few ideas, but hopefully they provide some creative inspiration that will help you make something fun of your space instead of letting it fill up with old <a title="Sporting Goods" href="http://www.atgstores.com/sporting/?linkloc=tn" target="_blank">exercise equipment</a> and <em>Reader’s Digests</em>.
