Spare Room Ideas

Spare room ideas to make the most of your extra space.

A bonus room is definitely a blessing. Not knowing what to do with it can feel like a curse. When you have an extra room in your house, the possibilities may seem endless. Without a clear purpose or design idea, spare rooms sometimes sit idly as storage space waiting for their potential to be realized. Well, we're here to help!

Your spare room interior design process starts by assessing your lifestyle needs. Do you need an open space for pursuing DIY hobbies? If you have many needs and one spare room, consider designing a multifunctional space that will give you the most bang for your buck. Whether you're dreaming of a chic home office, a cozy guest bedroom, a lively music room, or even a large walk-in closet (*swoon*), Spoak will help you turn those dreams into reality.
