Bonus rooms are the often overlooked, big empty spaces of the home sometimes used as kids’ playrooms, storage, or a spare bedroom.
Instead of this space in your home being an afterthought, why not transform it into something extraordinary? Our clients have taken a dull, unused space and turned it into the highlight of the home.
Not sure what to do with your bonus room? Here are a couple of ideas to get your wheels turning.
Turn your bonus room into a fun zone by creating a game room. This space can include an entertainment center with a pool, air hockey, and foosball table for you and your guests to play. You can bring your own childhood into the game room by purchasing old arcade games.
To maximize the space, your game room can also include a refreshment center or bar. You could install a soda fountain for the kids and a wet bar for the adults, as well as a popcorn machine and a well-stocked refrigerator to satisfy your cravings while you’re in the middle of a game.
Bonus rooms are usually large enough to easily convert into a home theater. We could install a large screen on one of the walls, a projector, and surround sound speakers to make the room feel like an actual movie theater.
Comfy chairs and sofas are a must to relax and watch a movie after a busy day. You’ll also want acoustic panels to make the experience better, and soundproof walls so you don’t disturb others in the house. We are also able to help you install recessed lighting that you can dim once it’s time for the movie to start.
If your home is missing a luxurious area away from the rest of the family, why not turn your bonus room into a master suite?
Depending on the location of the bonus room, we could connect it to a spa-like bathroom with a huge bathtub and walk-in shower. Your master suite could include a seating area next to a fireplace where you could read a book to wind down after a long day.
If space allows, we could install a huge walk-in closet that looks more like a high-end boutique than your typical closet. This space is all about you, and we will be able to customize it to your needs.
Do you have a family of musicians? How about turning your bonus room into a music room?
If this causes hesitation, don’t worry, we can install soundproofing to minimize the sounds of practice. You’ll also want plenty of storage for instruments, supplies, electronics, and even recording equipment.
You can decorate it with fun musical memorabilia and vintage instruments. This would be a room that your family would love.
If you have something else in mind for your large, under-utilized bonus room, we’d love to hear about it! Our team can transform your space into just about anything you can imagine.
