#248 Bonus room ideas
Manage episode 358436211 series 2078835
If you have a large house and a bonus room that you don't quite know how to use, I would love to share some ideas! Bonus rooms can be tricky if you have too many things going on but it can be a wonderful space if planned correctly. So let's get into some bonus room ideas on how you can best use it in your home.
We never had a bonus room in our first home because it was a 1600 sq ft house. We had 3 bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, and an eat-in kitchen. There was no extra space for anything else. But in our home in New Mexico, it was over 2000 square feet and we had the same setup but it was an open floor plan all one level. There was a room that was across from the dining room and living room that had no "designation" so we had to think about how to use it. We eventually turned it into a playroom but it wasn't ideal because it was literally across from the formal dining room which was nice and neat and then you had an open room (no doors or walls) to the potentially messy playroom. We only had one child at the time so we used one bedroom as an office, the kid's bedroom and then a guest bedroom. So this extra space was just ... extra. So what do you do with those kinds of spaces? Let's talk about some ideas that might work for you depending on your status in life.
I share options on how you can use your bonus room if you have kids and options if you don't have kids (or no longer have kids).
