Spare room?

Most couples I know without children have a spare room in their house, what do you use yours for?

At the moment ours is DH's office/general dumping ground. I really need to do it up properly at some point.

We have two at the moment. One is our full guest room. The other is my office. We are looking for a daybed to put in the office right now, so that we can have some extra sleep room.

We also have two. One is the office, as it's really too small to be a bedroom. The other is a spare room for guests. Well, it will be once all the wedding stuff is cleared out...

Ours is guest bedroom/storage. We set up my old bed in there (I had a full, we use DH's queen in our room) and all my bookshelves and books are in there. The closet is full of boxes of our stuff and DH's dining table (which was too big for the dining space in this apartment) is set up in there for him to store his figurines and paint them if I'm occupying the living room. It's really a catch-all!


I'm just excited that we HAVE a spare room... it's a sign that we're moving up in the world, to go from bare-minimum to having something extra. ;)

Right now we live in a two bedroom condo, so the second bedroom is an office/guestroom combo. However, we're looking to buy a 4BR 2.5 BA house soon, with the idea that one bedroom will be ours, one a guestroom, one an office, and one open for possibilities! (probably a separate office or hobby room)

Consider making it a shoe closet/shrine. That's my goal for the next house!

It is a guest-room. And kindof like a storage. Lol

It's supposedly a guest room but it's stacked full to the brim with my books and other junk. We keep talking about clearing it out but that will be a huge project lol. Mostly the only people who stay over from time to time are my mom and brother and they don't care about the state of the room. Anyone else that may stay sleeps on the couch!

I just saw this topic come up again, and I'm so excited that now we do own that 4BR 2.5BA house :) And yes, one spare is the office, one is a guest room (DH calls it "his" room though, since he keeps most of his clothes there and gets ready there in the morning), and the last is my craft room, which is fabulous! I actually have my own space to wrap presents and make things and I love it. I also get to use that closet to store my huge wedding dress ;)
