If you’re anything like me and have an abundance of clothes and furniture that you don’t want to part with just yet, then your spare room can quickly become a dumping ground for all your random belongings. The key to creating the ultimate relaxing space is to design a room that can be adapted to your relaxation needs, whether that be a home office or a cosy reading room.

Everybody wants to create a home which they can truly relax in, but we only have so many rooms that can be transformed into a tranquil haven. So, if you’re lucky enough to have a spare room read my quick guide in creating the ultimate relaxing space.


Home Office

Although you may not have must use for a home office, it’s always good to have a room in the house where you can go sort out your bills or catch up on any paperwork you may have. Create the ultimate relaxing home office by adding a small desk decorated with your favourite ornaments and pictures. For something a little more casual add a sofa for lounging around.


Sleeping Room

If working from home just isn’t on your agenda and you need a space to just unwind and nap, then designing a sleeping room may be the best option for you. In order to keep the room as relaxing as possible, decorate the room in a neutral and minimal style, which won’t be too distracting when you are wanting to get a little shut-eye. To fully execute the sole purpose of a sleeping room you will need to invest in both a comfortable bed and blackout curtains/blinds. Sleep is awesome.


Home Spa

How great would it be to have your own home spa? Although I am not recommending you start giving all your pals massages from your spare room, you can create a spa-like room ideal for stress- free afternoons. Fill this room with your favourite treatments, scented candles and relaxing indoor palm trees. If you really want to fully commit to the spa theme, then there is plenty of picturesque art that you can place on the walls to give it that finishing touch. You could revamp your bathroom to match, there are some amazing showers available including the Insignia Shower Cabin.


Reading Room

Is there anything more relaxing than getting lost in your favourite book? Yes…getting lost in your favourite book in your favourite room in your house! This room needs to be relaxing from beginning to end. Instead of a settee or bed why not make a luxury cushion den by investing in a super comfy carpeting that your body can fully submerge into. If you don’t want a full room dedicated to reading why not incorporate carpet tiles into your design and section off your very own reading corner. Add a cute bookshelf and your good to go!


Private Bar

Not all relaxation havens are meant to be enjoyed alone, transform your spare bedroom into the ultimate gal’s retreat with your very own walk-in bar. Depending on the size of the room you will have to decide what type of bar you could realistically fit in the room. It would either need to be placed in the centre of the room demanding the attention of guests or cleverly designed into the room’s storage. There is plenty of design options to choose from when creating your own walk-in bar. Whether you’re looking for a minimalist design with comfy seating and relaxing atmosphere or whether you’re planning to play host to a group of friends.  Relaxing can be as much about fun as it is spending time alone.
