Empty Nesters: What to do with Your Spare Room Did your kid just move out and you don't know what to do with the empty room? Or did you finally clean out the spare room and don't know what do with it besides using it as storage? We've got a few ideas to help you get started.
Home Office/ Library
If you often work from home or you’re self-employed, a home office is your best choice. You’ll finally have a quiet place to work away from the rest of the family.
Add built-in shelves, a comfy chair, and a floor lamp and you also have your own library!
Take your treadmill and/or stationary bike out of the living room and move it into your empty room. Create a work-out space and install a full length mirror on one wall to create a gym-like room.
If you feel that the space is too small to use for other purposes, it may make a wonderful dressing room. All you need is to add a few floating shelves, a garment rack, mirrors, decorative boxes to organize the smaller accessories, lighting, and you have yourself a dressing room.
You can get very creative with a game room. Include a TV, sports memorabilia, a popcorn maker, a billiards table or a card table set up. Don’t forget to add storage for board games and accessories.
If you have many out-of-town friends or family who visit regularly, a guest bedroom would be the best choice. But if you don’t want to limit your only extra room for just guests, then it’s time to purchase an American Leather Comfort Sleeper! With the Comfort Sleeper, you can have any of those rooms mentioned above PLUS a guest room.
Add a full size Comfort Sleeper sofa to your home office and transform the office into a guest room when you have guests.
Not enough room in the game room? Try a cot size Comfort Sleeper. Game Room during the day and Guest Room at night.
