Creative Uses for the Extra Room in Your Seattle Apartment
If you’re one of the lucky apartment dwellers to have extra space or an extra room in your residence, there are all sorts of ways you can use the room for fun, entertainment, and relaxation, as well as productive activities. Many people decide to turn their extra rooms into home offices, but not everyone wants to bring the office home each evening. Here are a few ideas for the extra space or room in your apartment.
Create a Space to Relax, Meditate, or Just Sit
There are very few places in life where the whole purpose of the space is to relax and sit without interruption. According to Apartment Search, one interesting way to use an extra room is to use it as a “tranquil meditation room” or a space to relax:
“If you’re looking for peace and quiet, it might just be in your spare room. Create a cozy little den with pillows, tapestries, books, blankets, candles, and anything else your heart desires. Use it as a place to meditate, drink your morning coffee, or turn off your brain for a bit after a long day.”
When approaching an extra room in your Seattle apartment, some people recommend creating a space without items like television, phones, and other electronic devices. Intrusions like work and last-minute calls from friends can interrupt what might otherwise be relaxing evenings, and a room that’s completely devoid of anything that’s electronic can help you step out of the 24/7 work environment and clear your mind.
You don’t have to turn into an authentic yogi with a degree in meditation to make use of a relaxation room. A room painted in blue or another relaxing color with a comfy bed, and some warm lighting can offer a wonderful space to relax, as well as to read a calming book in the evening. Leave the television in the bedroom (or living room) and keep your relaxation room quiet and comfortable.
Don’t Have a Full Extra Room? Not a Problem!
Having an entire extra room is a luxury many apartment dwellers don’t have, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative with the extra space in your apartment. Not only can you transform part of your apartment into a home office or something utilitarian, but you can also consider creating a healthy space like a workout area or a place to engage in one of your hobbies.
If you only have a small amount of room to decorate or improve, you might consider purchasing an all-in-one gym that can offer you a variety of exercise positions in a compact space. Exercise equipment that offers multiple options for exercising often only takes up a small amount of floor space.
Consider: Having a place to exercise in your apartment that’s only a few steps from your kitchen, living room, and bedroom can also make it easier to find the motivation to work out on a regular basis.
