3 Ways to Put That Spare Room to Great Use

If there’s one thing that the Movement Control Order taught us, besides helping save our very lives, is how precious having an extra room is when living for days on end bumping into family members from morning to night.

If you are one of those lucky few with an extra space to spare in your home that you have no idea what to do with, this article is just the thing for you.

Don’t use the space as a storeroom that eventually gets filled with odds and ends and looks like hell in no time. Here are three great ideas that will put that room to great use.

Home sanctuary

This space is great for those who yearn for some downtime but don’t want to be sleeping and watching TV all day long.

This space can consist of books, scented candles, meditation pillows and perhaps some of your art.

The best thing about your home sanctuary is that it’s your personal safe haven to create and design any which way you want – have built-in bookshelves, pastel walls, soothing plants – the sky’s the limit when it comes to this space.

Home office

Might sound like a buzzkill to think about work whilst at home, but for those days where a pandemic sweeps the world, a home office doesn’t seem like the worst idea, plus it doesn’t have to revolve around your full-time job.

You can still utilise the space for your part-time love for blogs or fashion, you can turn it into more of an art studio for your passion projects.

The home office can play as a catalyst in helping you rediscover your passion.


For those of you who have children and an extra room, a playroom could be a great solution to keep the clutter of toys and colouring books out of the living room or dining area where the adults live and eat.

A play area can also help instil creativity and motivate children to share more as they recognise that the playroom is a shared space.

The playroom is also great if you want to discover your child’s passion. You can set up different stations around the room, dedicated to art, science or music and see what piques their interest.
