What to Do with Your Extra Room

Large, empty room

You're always tossing things into the extra room, so it's not exactly wasted space. Still, you daydream about converting it into something really useful. With so many affordable storage units in Brooklyn, NY, why not kick out the clutter and work some DIY magic with these spare room makeover ideas?

1. Shape Up in a Personal Gym

Transform your extra room into a personal gym with all the equipment you've stashed in self storage. When it's too wet to jog in Prospect Park, hit the treadmill back at the house. It's easy to stay motivated in the privacy of your home.

2. Create an Art Studio

Set your inner artist free inside a home art studio. Hang sectioned shelving dedicated to oil, pastel, and watercolor supplies. Use a tilting table as a sketch board, and set up your easel next to a bright window.

3. Give Kids Study Space

Liberate spare desks and chairs from self storage for homework in the extra room. Set up a quiet space where the kids can study. Make it a designated spot for stashing school supplies and backpacks.

4. Give Youngsters a Play Station

Let younger kids go wild in their own special play room. Corral their stuff with bench seating that doubles as toy storage. When the kids get noisy in their new den, quietly close the door, and let them have fun.

5. Make Man Cave Dreams Come True

Turn the extra room into the ultimate man cave with a gaming table that can handle cards, poker chips, and dice. Set up a small flat screen opposite comfy loungers and console setups for non-stop online multiplayer action.

6. Glide Into a Fashionista's Walk-In

Treat yourself to a beautiful walk-in closet with this DIY spare room conversion. Install wall- and floor-mounted storage units with hanging racks and glide-out shelves. Add full-length mirrors to reflect your fabulous fashionista taste.

7. Relax in Your Own Cocktail Lounge

Elevate the home bar a few shots above an ordinary happy hour with an in-house cocktail lounge conversion. Center decorating around the retro fun of a leather-padded island bar, hipster stools, and a wheeled cocktail cart.
