Transform Your Bonus Room

A bonus room is a beautiful thing: extra space to use however you see fit. It can be the perfect place to entertain friends and family, or you could turn it into a functional area for yourself or your children. We’re bringing you several ideas about how you can transform your bonus room into a usable space that you’ll love spending time in.

Media Room
Wondering where to put that huge 65-inch flat screen you scored on Black Friday? Your bonus room can be turned into media or home theater with the addition of a large TV, comfy couch and some curtains to keep the room dark for movie watching.

Game Room
Add a pool table, arcade games or just some board games and a table, and your bonus room can be converted into the ultimate game room.

Man Cave
The bonus room could be a retreat to watch your favorite team’s games on TV and relax without any interruptions. No man cave is complete without a large couch, an even larger TV and a mini fridge or at-home bar.

Home Office
Whether you work from home full-time or only do occasionally, turning the bonus room into a home office is as easy as getting a desk, a bookcase or wall shelves for storage and a comfortable office chair.

Play Room
If you can’t seem to keep your children’s toys in one area of the home, converting the bonus room into a children’s play room could be your answer. Not only will your kids love having a dedicated play space, but they can keep all of their toys there and you can simply close the doors if you need to clean up before guests come over. It’s a win-win situation!
