So you have a spare room that you don’t quite know what to do with it. Often, the default is office or guest room. But, what if you’ve already got those covered? Here are several other unique ideas of things to do with a spare room:
Are you into photography? Get black, crimson or dark velvety curtains to cover up the windows (if there are any) in the spare room. Make sure they are super heavy and thick, to shut out all light. If you wish to go really professional, you can probably find real light eliminating curtains or shades at a camera store. Hang clothing lines on the walls, towards the ceiling, to pin your developing images to. Buy a simple table that doesn’t cost much to do your developing on (in addition to all the proper equipment, obviously) and obtain rolling stools, so you can easily move around the space while you work. Be sure to either remove any expensive carpeting since chemicals will likely spill, or to obtain a cheap rug to cover up the floor. And don’t forget that all-important sign for the door that says “Knock before entering! Photo developing in process!” or something to that extent.
You’d be very impressed by how much equipment can be fit into a small guest room sized area. If you’ve been meaning to put more time into a podcast you want to create, or into creating demo tapes to give to agents, you’ll definitely be encouraged to take action if you set up a studio right in your house! Make sure you get those foam mats to line the walls with to make the area sound proof. You don’t want people hearing you when you’re learning how to sing high notes! Test out moving objects around inside the room, to alter the echo. This will be relevant because when practicing such things as singing vocal vibrato, just the slightest bad echo and everything goes awry. Last but not least, decorate the room with images that inspire and relax you. When you’re doing your breathing exercises for singing, you want to be channeling something motivating!
Are you an aspiring chef? Do you teach lessons from your own home, or you’d like to and you’re always attempting to cram your professional ingredients into the fridge with the rest of your family or roommate’s stuff? Treat yourself to one of those giant, walk-in professional chef refrigerators. You’ll have room for those giant Tupper wares of mass ingredients that you’re saving, or for large trays of completed dishes and of course the bulk buys that chefs have to make
