9 Fun Ways To (Finally) Use That Spare Room
It happens. Maybe you planned a room for more kids in the future. Or perhaps, that extra space was meant to be a study area.
But wait - you don't study. And you don't think you can handle having any more mini-mes anyway. So right now, the reality is this - your spare room is empty, and it's very unused. But instead of leaving it to collect dust, why not convert it into an entertainment room that you'll probably use and have tons of fun in, just like these 9 amazing spaces?
Convert Your Spare Room Into A...
Fancy a drink? Stay home and pour yourself a round!
Imagine stepping into a high-end, hotel lounge to sip a single-malt as you unwind and forget the troubles of the day. Well, that’s exactly what this at-home bar resembles. Sitting inside a marvellous mixed-style landed home, this petite lounge is doused in soft lighting, plush champagne carpets and retro pop furniture that lend a very James Bond vibe! Shaken not stirred, please…
Why bother walking into a bar, when you can go home and party the night away? This modern home bar looks like a section in one of KL’s hottest nightclubs. But no, it is in someone’s home! The décor is total drama with slinky, tall bar furniture, a silken red-and-black rug and luxury padded feature walls, all dusted with dusky lighting.
Who needs to go out to go to the movies? Just head downstairs…
If you love hosting viewing parties or just snuggling up with the family and catching your favourite movies, this lovely modern home has a cinema-esque space worthy of envy. It is utterly cosy with a huge comfortable, soft grey sofa and an overall relaxingly dark colour scheme. The feature wall that holds the entertainment set is left bare to help ‘audiences’ focus on the screen; you can count on distractions being minimal in this space.
This stylish modern home gives both the real kids and the big kids a separate space to be entertained. The adult space is exclusive with white chesterfield sofas, hardwood floors, chic walls and low-lighting. Now in the second entertainment space, the energy is youthful and upbeat with candy-coloured poufs, a larger screen AND a starlit ceiling to boot!
Kicking back in such a refined, classy space is #goals for most, but this traditional-modern landed already has it made! Set in creamy neutrals and warm woods, pops of colour in the sofas and cosy couches lend a lighthearted air to the room. The result is a super sophisticated living area cum entertainment space.
This mature, polished living area is nicely set up to let its inhabitants relax and recharge in total comfort. With warm, plush sofas, a deep-pile rug and natural hues all around, the homely vibe is amplified. Since modern, high-ceilings often let in a lot of light, which doesn’t bode well for TV screens, a heavy feature wall constructed cleverly shields outside lighting sufficiently.
Family Chillout Area
Family time never looked this stylish. Perhaps a board game or two - or storytelling time for your kids (and their friends?).
This family area is futuristic, cool and wonderfully eccentric! The throwback style is perfect for family bonding with a carpeted sunken floor space, wood panelled walls, comfy seating and relatively bare trimmings. The neutral colours also work well to set off a calming atmosphere, so the family can relax and talk, sans distractions.
Because adults can have fun too. Whether it's cards or darts, let the games begin – in style!
This game room is made for serious gamers only, the Mah-jong players! What we love about this amazing vintage landed is that it never forgets its root with a dedicated room fitted with comfy seats, an exclusive Mah-jong table and plenty of natural light – perfect for hours of play! It keeps with its vintage décor nevertheless with genteel wallpaper, delicate hues and regal furniture.
Music rules this roost. And if you fancy yourself a K-diva, why not build a private room for belting out those tunes, all night long?
If you love belting it out, you’re going to love this karaoke room and music space! Decked out with music memorabilia and super relaxed seating options, the melodious vibes are sure to flow through. The hues and materials on display are deep, rich and velvety, complementing the chill space and laid back ambience.
Your home, your rules.
