Shopping for new homes in Little Elm, TX? As you’re evaluating homes in the area, find out if they include a bonus room. These rooms have become very popular in recent years, because they can be used in so many different ways. North Dallas home builder Landon Homes includes bonus rooms in its floor plans so home buyers can design the space to accommodate their particular needs.
Some common uses for a bonus room are a media room, home office, children’s play area, oversized game room, or a craft room. A media room allows homeowners to feel like they are going to the movies, while still enjoying the comforts of home. Studies or home offices have become popular as more people work from home, but need a separate space that doesn’t interfere with their normal living space.
A bonus room can be located virtually anywhere in the house. Some builders tuck them behind a covered porch or atop a two- or three-car garage. The goal is to give the home owner options, so they will be satisfied with their purchase.
Here are a few decorating ideas to spruce up your bonus room:
Media room – Dark walls, ceiling, furniture and/or flooring are essential – but that doesn’t mean black! Consider a rich navy blue or chocolate brown color instead. And add patterned carpeting for visual interest.
Office – Use bright lamps, such as a floor fixture to create a nicely lit space. Wood finishes are appropriate for furniture. You can find stylish desks and chairs that are both functional and comfortable. Add some plants for visual interest. (Studies say they’re good for reducing stress!)
Craft room – Paint the walls with a white or off-white color to provide a neutral background for all of your art supplies, fabrics and paper. Select a table that is counter height and fit it with casters so that you can roll it to the middle of the room when needed. Store supplies on shelves or in stackable bins.
