Create a functional multi-purpose room
Posted on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 9:05:25 PM
For many people, the multi-purpose room can quickly become a catch-all space for junk and excess materials. The area that you dreamed of dedicating toward craft projects or a designated homework area may now be covered in random bits of household items or laundry. If you’re tired of seeing that room go to waste, consider using home improvement financing to reclaim the room and get the most out of the space.
1. Storage. Cover one large wall with built-in bookcases and cabinets so there is plenty of storage space in the room. Consider leaving some of the shelves open and others closed so that you can display family photos or knick knacks while still having the ability to close cupboard doors on the items you want to cover up.
2. Countertop workspace. Whether you are looking for a clear space to leave a project or an area for the kids to do their homework, a countertop desk is ideal. By going to a local hardware store, you can find an affordable, durable and sizable countertop to install in the room. This option will give you the exact workspace dimensions you require, without breaking the bank.
