Let's face it, most of us have more house than we need, or for that matter more apartment. Ok, unless you live in New York. So, for those of us that have more space than we need or use, what do you do with the other rooms?
Office, check. Guest room, hmmmm? What do you do with the others? I have struggled with this question for quite some time. Yes, a guest room is standard. But what if you don't have guests? Do you do a guest room anyway? I do have a twin guest bed in the office so I am technically covered. Do you dedicate a whole room?
What are some other options? Exercise space, or maybe a game space, library, craft room. Multi-purpose room.
I think I am settled on a multi-purpose room type space. You can go in and watch an old tv, exercise, craft, hang, or just get away.
Thus this photo from AD - Architectural Digest. Look closely, skip the coffe table, and the chairs, although I will put a couple of chairs in there that float around the house. Focus in on the couch -- it really is a twin bed. Love it. Kind of reminds me of the Brady Bunch Family Room, with the 2 twin beds that they used as couch/lounging/guests etc. This is perfect. Genius. I have a twin bed, so I can just repurpose it and be ready to go. I love the way they made it look like a couch.
Now, I think I may go with a color instead of the all white. Love the all white, just not practical for me.
So, what do you do with all your extra space?
