If you have guests throughout the year, we advise you to turn it into a guest room. There doesn’t need to be much in this room either. Simple things like a small wardrobe, with drawers and a bed, will all do the job. Place bedside tables next to each side of the bed as well. Not only will your guests feel more comfortable staying at your house but so will you. Add some wall decoration to make it more homely.
Build A Walk In Wardrobe
Time to start thinking about yourself. Do you find it hard to find space for clothes? Or does your partner take up too much space?

The Man Cave
It is a room that every man wants at some point in life, usually during the mid-life crisis phase. The man cave is a room they want to go and escape from the real world and just relax. All they want to do is put their feet up and watch their favourite sports team or have a couple of drinks with their friends who also want to escape the real world.

It would include the wall paint/wallpaper, the flooring and the decoration for the windows. The best thing about all of these is that your choices are endless with colours.
