An expert’s advice on what to do with that small spare room


  • No matter what you decide to turn your spare room into, there are some general tips that might help you organize the space more easily.
  • If you’ve already used this room for something, but want to change its purpose, try to see if there is anything in it that you could make use of.
  • For everything else, you may want to return it elsewhere in your home, or rent out a storage unit through a company like and get those things out of your hair.
  • Mirrors and reflective surfaces are a great way to provide the room with a feel of more space, even if it is tiny in reality.
  • Use white for your walls only if the spare room has a lot of natural light. If it doesn’t, you can turn to moodier, darker colors. White without natural light can seem quite gray and dull.
  • Be clever when choosing furniture. Always have the purpose of the room in mind, but also think about what will look best in a cramped space.

A guest room


  • If you are wondering what to do with an extra room, turning it into a guest room may be the most obvious choice. If you haven’t already decided on it for your bedroom, it’s probably quite limited in space.
  • While this might be annoying for someone on a day to day basis, it might just be enough for a house guest.
  • It will probably provide you with a lot of joy to be able to host friends comfortably. Your old college roommate or a cousin you don’t see enough of will be more likely to visit.
  • Also, if the room is already set up as a bedroom, it will be really easy to turn it into a children’s room in case you decide to expand your family.

Reading nook


  • Every voracious reader dreams of having a special reading nook their whole lives. People often choose to do this with attic-type spaces with slanted roofs.
  • There are traditionally not quite fitting for any activities that require a lot of standing up.
  • If this sounds like an ideal choice for you, you don’t really need an expert’s advice on what to do with that small spare room. You need a comfy chair, a wall of shelves for all your favorite titles and a steady source of light.
  • Depending on your aesthetic, you could even get a bean bag chair for maximum comfort. Consider banning phones from this room altogether. This will help you keep a steady attention span and provide a truly relaxing space.

Library/home office


  • If you already have a bookshelf or, if you’re lucky, a whole wall of shelves in your reading nook, it will be really easy to turn it into a home office if need be.
  • If you start working from home more, you can easily add a small desk and chair to the space.
  • You will already be used to this room being a room of focus and concentration. Your productivity won’t be threatened like it might be if you are working out of your bedroom or living room.

Media room/home theater


  • This idea is also among the more popular or obvious ones when it comes to deciding what to do with an extra room. You’ll typically need a couch and a TV or screen with a projector for playing movies or TV shows.
  • Instead of a couch, you can always fill the space with bean bag chairs as well.
  • Most people use their living rooms for watching movies or enjoying other media. However, having a separate room for these activities may be quite beneficial.
  • For one, lots of people are used to falling asleep to the sound and flicker of a screen. It often stays on throughout the night. Research has shown that this habit actually influences our sleep cycle negatively.
  • A media room will not only ensure you have a place to have fun with your loved ones but also that you develop healthy habits.
