6. Create your own private hideaway
There are no rules when it comes to a spare room, and ultimately how the space is used is down to you. So why shouldn’t your spare bedroom ideas be a little bit indulgent – creating a space not for guests, or with any specific purpose, but just an area where you can sit and relax?
It could mean turning the room into a library, if you enjoy books, for example. Really go for it with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, a [leather armchair or two, plus a floor lamp and a glass coffee table. Include natural textures, through cushions and rugs, to create a warm, inviting space.
This could be a snug just for yourself, or you may feel inclined to allow guests in every now and then. Create a bar area with [wooden bar stools to really impress them, or add a bar cart, wine rack and some characterful furniture. Bean bags and footstools will encourage them to relax even more.
