If you've got space in your home that you're ready to repurpose, such as a spare bedroom or finished basement, we have a few ideas on how to turn it into something useful.
Useful Ideas For Your Spare Room
A Home Office
Even if you don't usually work from home, converting an empty room into a home office for you and your family is a great use of space.
Outfit the space with a large desk, comfortable office chair, shelves, computer, printer and other office essentials. Add a small wall-mounted television and a cozy chair and ottoman for an out of the way place to read or watch tv. Before long, you'll find yourself escaping to your home office to do everything from balancing your checkbook to printing out your shopping list and coupons.
