Transform your empty bedrooms into dedicated hobby spaces

By Rhiannon Thompson

The size of luxury real estate in Australia can be both a blessing and a curse.

On the one hand, chances are you’ll have no shortage of bedrooms and bathrooms for you, your loved ones and your guests.

However, sometimes having so many bedrooms can cause a headache of its own. For instance, if you have several empty rooms that are not being used, you may find yourself at a loss for what to do with them.

Having space to stretch out is one thing, but do you really want to just have rooms in your home that are not being utilised?

Luckily, this can be a fun problem to have. If you find yourself with excess room in your prestige property, consider different ways to put them to use!

What drives you?

Before you start weighing your options, think about what kind of room might suit you and your home. Are you a yoga fanatic? Maybe your spouse is a wine lover. Or perhaps you kids like to stay in shape.

The different hobbies and passions of you and your family can be a great guiding light for how to utilise these spaces. The following are some ideas to get you started.

Meditation room

Who doesn’t crave an escape from the stressful hustle and bustle of modern life from time to time?

By transforming an empty bedroom into a mediation room, you can create your very own oasis in which to sit, breathe and simply be.

Whether it’s strictly relaxation and contemplation or you’re thinking of adding some yoga to the mix, consider deep, dark colours that will put you at ease.

Wine room

Who said wine cellars need to be under your home?

If you’re a fan of the vino and want a dedicated room in which to keep your prized bottles, an empty bedroom can be turned into a wine-lover’s dream in no time.

Home gym

Depending on the size of the room, it could be perfect for a home gym. All you really need to get started is a treadmill and some free weights.

However, take the time to plan out your gym so it suits the type of exercise you find most invigorating. Love taking a bike ride during the warm weather? Invest in a stationary bike and make your gym membership a thing of the past!

Home library

This one is ideal for book-lovers.
Forget the public library, why not transform an empty bedroom into your very own reading room?
Think comfy leather chairs and your favourite volumes staring down at you from polished oak shelves. Just don’t forget to install proper lighting!
