We have a craft room in a spare bedroom now.  Since my husband gets the garage, that’s my little space.

Daybeds aren’t that much really. I’d turn it into a dressing room for myself for now πŸ™‚

-sewing room (also where I house all my random craft/photography stuff… This room just has a large table with chair, couch, and some shelving units)

-office

We turned our extra bedroom into a small gym. We put a spinning bike and weights in it. You’d be amazed at how much easier it is to talk yourself into working out when you just have to walk across the hall.

Close off the air vent and save some money on heating/cooling. Actually, I’m not sure this would even do anything, but I would convince myself it would. πŸ™‚

If I had extra room, I would set up a nice area for folding and air-drying laundry. And ironing.  I currently do this on my guest bed, and air dry on a rack in my dining room. I’d kill for a laundry room!

@CanAmBride: That’s what I was going to suggest.

If I had the space, I’d get an elliptical in a heartbeat and set up an in-home gym.

You don’t really need to buy a day bed. If you purchased just a regular twin and frame and then bought tons of pillows and big roll pillows for the arms you could make a faux daybed. Perhaps you can take up sewing and make them yourself πŸ™‚

I would either do a dressing room or a small gym.

We have 3 spare bedrooms.  One will soon turn into a guest room using his old furniture when we get our new set.  The other two…. will remain empty until needed.  I have no desire to spend money into turning it into anything just to use the space, and then end up repurposing it again later for children.  I have no problems with leaving it empty and closed off.

We have two extra rooms. One is an office/game room, and the other one is my library πŸ™‚ I love it!
