Whether you call it a bonus room, multipurpose room, lofted room, family room over garage, or a basement, a flex room by any other name is just as versatile. And versatility is really the best part about these spaces. We love flex rooms because they’re the multi-tool of rooms that you can have in your home. Need a dedicated space for craft projects? Set up shop in your flex room and start monogramming everything you can get your hands on. See you on Etsy! Or maybe you want the convenience of a home gym; the perfect place to get those gains that will really let you put the “flex” in flex room. Whatever your interests, thinking creatively about how you use a flex room can help you decide how you want to explore them. Take a look at some of the ways these homes use their flex rooms.
Using a flex room as an extra bedroom is always a great way to make the most of the space in your home. This is the perfect way to accommodate friends and guests, especially during the holiday season. Be the best ho-ho-host around by offering your guests somewhere to sleep off all of that ham and eggnog.
This flex room is interesting because it’s being used as an extra bedroom off a larger room; a flex room adjacent to a flex room. What an opportunity for creativity!
Another great use of space in your home could be a creative use of your lofted space. These homes both have areas at the top of the stairs that they’ve been able to repurpose for unique uses. These lofted space flex rooms are great places for a playroom, reading nook, or sitting area.
Entertainment rooms are another popular way to use flex rooms. Whether it’s a home theater, game room, or the ultimate man-cave painted in your favorite team’s colors, this can be the place to enjoy it all!
We all know that making it to the gym on a regular basis can sometimes be a struggle. Using your home’s flex room as an exercise room is a great way to maximize the space in your home, minimize your expenses, and, most importantly, save your most precious commodity: time.
Basements are great examples of flex rooms. There aren’t any set rules for what you have to do with these spaces, so your options are wide open. This is especially true for homes like the one above. Unfinished sections mean room for innovation and originality!
This is a good example of a basement flex room that incorporates a number of great elements. What a fantastic use of a flex room!
The Advantages of Versatility
Flex rooms come in all shapes and sizes, and their utility is nearly endless. The versatility inherent in flex rooms means that their contents could easily be exchanged again and again for new and different purposes each time. We think that having what amounts to a blank canvas upon which to explore your creativity is one of the greatest advantages that you can ask for in a home.
