Flex Space

What is a Flex Space

A flex space or room is an area in your home that can be created and used for different activities. This space can be an entire room or an area in your home that can be utilized in different ways. With more families staying at home, flex rooms create a space that can be enjoyed by everyone in the family!

Here are some ideas to create a flex space in your home:

1. Converting a Room. Turn your spare bedroom into your Home Office. Use multi-functional furniture for this space such as a daybed that can be used as seating during the day and a bed for guests at night. Instead of a traditional office desk, look for a tabletop that can double as an oversized accent table. Pick out a sleek Office Chair or accent chair to tie into your new home office space.

2. Finishing a Room. An unfinished basement or garage is a great way to utilize unused space in your home. Home Theater? Look for couches or reclining chairs for comfy seating. Invest in a nice Projector and a projector screen to get that movie theater feel. For all you movie snackers, grab yourself a fun Popcorn Maker to top it off! What about a Home Gym? Gather all your Fitness Equipment from around your house and set it up in this space. Don’t forget to carve out a little space for Yoga and meditation- we all need that!

3. Multipurpose Room. Playroom today, craft room tomorrow. Multipurpose rooms are great to have in any home. They can evolve over time to better fit the needs of you or your family.

4. Nooks & Alcoves. Some homes are designed with carved out wall space, typically used for a coffee bar or storage area. Use these small spaces smartly; look into creating an art nook with an easel, paint & a multi-purpose chair. Another option, a fold down wall desk for virtual learning- also a good idea for a Work Desk if you live in a smaller space.

5. Lounge Space. Turn that extra bedroom into a relaxing lounge space to unwind after a long and busy day. Use this space to read, journal, nap or better yet- binge watch your favorite shows! Add a plush loveseat, cozy Pillows and Blankets to help you unwind.
