From the article:
You’re paying big bucks for that “spare bedroom” sitting there, wasting space.
Sure, Aunt Martha might come visit from England, but why should you be forced to bankroll other people’s vacations by struggling to balance a bedroom with everything else you want to use the room for?
When I was a kid, you were lucky if someone had a sleeper sofa you could crash on. This whole “everyone’s got extra bedrooms” fad seems the height of extravagance to me. I say stop the silliness. Bring back the functional room. Spare bedrooms are where dust bunnies thrive and clutter rules the roost.
Get over the guilt regarding using your spare room for yourself. It’s not selfish. It’s living in all of the home that you own, that you pay for, and you maintain.
Here are ways to reinvent your spare room so it’s all about you.
What you need are comfy chairs, a decent table, good lighting, a magnifying glass, and a bunch of boxes of puzzles. The ultimate puzzle fan’s room! Get yourself a wide puzzle rack, or have one made, like those you see in kindergarten classes. This way, you can work on up to a couple dozen puzzles at a time! Perfect to while away the upcoming winter, and a great way to keep your mind sharp while you relax.
Here’s where you own who you are and celebrate it. From your D&D book collection to your painted figurines and whatever else gets your nerdy little heart afire, a nerd kingdom gives you one giddy room of greatness to enjoy everything you love. That way, the rest of your home looks like a functioning adult lives there.
Hardly an original idea, and for good reason. If you’ve ever loved to read, you’ve had a secret wish to have your own library. We book-lovers are a rare breed and owning your own books never gets old. A couple good chairs, good light, side tables, maybe a writing desk, and you’re off. Now all you need are ceiling-height bookshelves, a ladder, a long-haired cat in the corner, and maybe a ghost.
