C&G’s Top 4 Fun Uses for Your Spare Room

A spare room is often automatically earmarked as a bedroom – but what else could you be missing out on? If you’ve no use for an extra bedroom, these 4 fun uses for your spare room will transform your home.

Walk-In Wardrobe

It’s very clothes-lover’s dream. Imagine an entire room to store your clothes, shoes and accessories – simply invest in some wardrobes and remove the doors, and mount some shelves to showcase your most treasured pieces. Add in a few large mirrors and some great lighting, and you’ve got yourself your very own dressing room.


Ever need a bit of peace and quiet? Transform your spare room into a snug – a haven for relaxation. Whether you like to snuggle up with a good book or do a crossword by the fire, choose some comfy chairs, blankets and warm mood lighting, and then accessories with whatever brings you joy. Perhaps a bookshelf stacked with your favourite titles, or a yoga and meditation corner.

Movie Room

Skip the lounge room and have movie night in your very own cinema room. If you have a blank wall, you could use a projector to watch the latest blockbusters on the big screen, and you’re free to enjoy your own snacks and comfy chairs. Bean bags, recliners or even a love seat – you can make it your own. Put the finishing touches to your exclusive room by installing a mini fridge and bar cart in the corner. Your mates will be very impressed. 

Home Gym

Skip your monthly gym membership and opt for workouts at home. No need to get out in the cold and wet during winter – so no excuses! Whether you love sweaty HIIT sessions or slow paced yoga and pilates, get yourself some mats, mirrors and basic equipment and you’re halfway to a healthier you. You can access hundreds of free home workouts with The Fitness Blender here.
