Add A Multi-Functional Room To Your Home

By Victor Rake

A home is a representation and an extension of the personality of the owner. A person can roam around the world, but by the end of the day, he has to come back to his personal space, called home. Home should be designed in way that it gives a relaxing atmosphere after having a hard day. It should be decorated in way that one loves spending time there. Spacious homes are loved by everyone, because it can get very difficult to adjust in small houses, if you have a big family.

Many decorating, home care, renovation magazines display various designs and tips that can be executed to decorate a spare room in your home that can be employed as a study room, a library, a guest rooms, a home office and a play room as well. However, many a times, many of us do not even have the opportunity to embellish and multi-use a spare room. Yet, there is nothing to be despair about, because there is a solution to it; you can create a space in your home that would serve with double duty.

One of the best ways to create a guest room is to simply purchase a sleeper sofa or a day bed that would serve as a seating sofa during daytime and a sleeping place for the guests at night. People usually think that a mattress might do the work, but then they are not as comfortable. These sleeper sofas are far more comfortable; and, should be the primary aim on the part of the host.

Another alternative to it could be the built-in-banquettes that can be laid out in the dining or the living room. However, you have to ensure the size of the banquettes that should be long and wide enough for all the guests to be easily accommodated. In order to make them more comfortable, add thick upholstery, so that the guests enjoy their stay overnight.

Coming to the increasing trend of a home office, many people face some issues regarding constructing and designing a functional home office area since it cannot be folded up when not in use. However, if you have a large closet that is spare and spacious enough, it can serve as the perfect space for a home office area. The doors can be left open during the day time so that there is plenty of space for a desk, office items, storage and other equipment.

Do not forget to add bookcases; they will make you feel better, as to make use of them is really valuable. An average extent of an area is up to 12 feet long by 10 feet wide; however, you can get more benefits from the more length. In this way, you will be able to learn in a same room where you can rest, relax and enjoy.

Use a bookcase to put board games, photo albums, craft supplies, music CD, video tapes and books out of sight. It will make your area orderly and well planned. You should make use of every inch of cube footage. Fit a bookcase in the corner and add some extra space with it as well. It will permit you to avail it for several things.

To decorate the room further, add a mirror in the room, which will give a nice look to the room. If you want to use the room as an office as well, add an armoire instead of adding big and dull office desks.
