Whether your Signature Homes’ floorplan includes an open loft, den or even an extra bedroom you aren’t quite sure how to use yet, let us spark your creativity with these ideas on crafting your new space.
Sitting Room. Create a cozy area to get away from it all and chat quietly with friends. Arrange U-shaped comfortable seating with warm colors, layered rugs and rich hued accents.
Home Office. Whether you need a home office to run a business, telecommute, or simply a spot for paying bills and organizing your schedule, here are a few home office hacks that will help you create the ideal home office because you’ll be much more productive if you have a dedicated work area.
Kids Study Area. Every child should have a room, or part of the room where can study and prepare projects for school. This may make them enjoy hitting the books more and you can keep an eye on them when they’re studying. This will create a space to store all school related stuff.
Reading Nook and Library. Craft a space that will make you want to sit back, pour a cup of coffee and crack open the latest must-read. Install some bookshelves to hold all your treasures, add a comfy chair and the proper lighting and you’ve made an ideal spot to catch-up on your reading.
Teen Lounge. Create a space where your teen can hang out with their friends. Giving them a space of their own outside their bedroom may help them feel like they have a little more freedom. Outfit it with lots of comfortable cushions and seating. Bring in a TV for video games and movies. Let them pick a few posters you can frame to add artwork to the walls. Let your teens help so they can really make the lounge their own.
Game Room. This room will benefit the entire family. Add comfy seating, a large table to play your favorite games and plenty of storage to hold all of your board games. You could also set it up with a pool table or some other type of game table such as foosball or air hockey.
Home Theater. Media rooms and home theaters are an increasingly popular feature in homes. Two major benefits are that they boost a home’s entertainment value as well as its potential resale value. Select plush, comfortable seating with cozy cushions and throw blankets.
Kids Playroom. Give your little ones their own special place by setting up a playroom and having plenty of storage space for their toys. This will help you from having toys scattered all over your house.
Yoga and Meditation Space. A mediation space in your home gives you a tranquil place to relax and refocus. You can truly get away from it all, right in your own home.
Hobby Room. Craft together a special spot to indulge your creativity with a hobby room or craft supply storage. Give yourself plenty of storage and a large work table.
Home Gym. Get in shape by bringing in some workout equipment and making your own home gym.
Make the most of all the space in your Signature home by deciding what fulfills your needs or inspires you the most, then use these needs when deciding how each room should function. Can’t decide on just one? Many of these ideas can be combined into one bonus room design.
