One of the first things that you notice after moving into a new place is how quickly it fills up. You probably saw that space when it was empty and visualized where you would put your own furniture and hang your favorite photos. Then after the movers dropped everything off, it was time to see if your planning worked out. The longer we stay in a place the more likely it is that you start to run out of room. It starts in the closets and cabinets. Then slowly all the accumulated stuff begins taking over the garage, basement and attic. It’s not hard to imagine some homes with nearly an equal amount of stuff that they aren’t using versus the things that get used every day. Suppose you could clear out some of that unwanted clutter. Would it be enough to empty an entire room? What would you do with that extra room? Here are some thoughts:
Books have becomes a very cherished keepsake. For avid collectors, there is nothing better then being able to gaze at shelves of books. Even for someone who simply likes to read, it is nice to have options. You could turn a spare room into a private library. If you don’t have enough books (yet!) to fill up a room, then consider it as your quiet place. Remember, there’s no loud noises in libraries. This can be a room where you shut the door and go off the grid for some much needed quiet time. Sounds very relaxing.
Are you a creative person? Maybe you were more creative years ago but got busy with life. Perhaps if you had a room dedicated to your creativity you might start expressing yourself again. An art studio can also be the room for all kinds of arts and crafts like sewing, quilting, framing and anything else you want to do with your hands. If it happens that your extra room has a lot of natural sunlight, then you’ll be ahead of the game.
Regardless of their age, children have a way of taking over a home with all their stuff. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was one room and one room only dedicated as the play space? This can be where all the toys, crayons, blocks and other kid items can be kept. Playtime means time in the playroom. When the kids grow up, you can makeover the room so it becomes their gaming place or where they practice a musical instrument.
If the thought of starting your own business is on the agenda, then you’ll want a home office to launch your company. Even if you’re not starting a business, you would still benefit from having a dedicated space where you can pay bills and take care of the household business.
