What is a Flex Room?
In the before-times, rooms in our home were just that – a room. You slept in your bedroom, cooked in your kitchen, yada yada. But this past year our homes have become our offices, our gyms, our schools. We’re using our living spaces differently now – and appreciating the multi-functional areas in our homes much more than ever before. Enter the flex room.
Flex rooms are a new trend in homebuilding – essentially an area in your house that can be customized and used for a number of different functions. Flex rooms are designed to be flexible and can be entire rooms, like separate quarters for your in-laws, or an area in your home that can be utilized in different ways throughout your time and life there. Flex rooms are your chance to create a space that’s uniquely YOU. Whether you want to use your flex space as a guest bedroom, a game room or a private library, the opportunities and design choices are endless. Here are a few that we love:
- Movie Room
Live like a celebrity by designing a personal movie theater for your family. A row of staggered, comfy chairs facing a large projector screen will help you create a professional theater atmosphere. Keep a little shelf or refrigerator with candy and snacks and you’ll be the most popular home on the block!
- Yoga Studio or Meditation Room
Honor your practice by dedicating a space in your home to relax and zen out. Keep the floors clear by using baskets to hold your yoga gear and keep the bohemian vibe by choosing a few colorful pillows to make your meditation time more comfortable.
Is there ever enough room for your clothes? Turn your flex room into the closet of your dreams by adding a few rolling racks and shelves to line the walls, a center island to hold smaller items and a comfortable place to lounge while you decide what to wear. Problem solved!
- Play Room
Having trouble corralling all of the toys in the house? Give them their own home by turning your flex space into a playroom! Kids of all ages will love to play in a colorful, unique space that’s just for them. Add furniture like small tables, easels for art projects, and big cushions or bean bag chairs. Make storing toys, books, and games easy with bookshelves and cabinets.
