If a new home has you dreaming of new possibilities for your lifestyle. This seems to be especially true when buyers home of choice has a spare bedroom and/or finished basement. Upgrade your lifestyle by creating a room dedicated solely to your interests.

Here are five ideas that will have you feeling like you're living the luxe life.

A home gym is a perfect addition to a finished basement or large spare room. To get a true gym feel install large mirrors, a widescreen tv and built-in speakers. Depending on the size of the room and amount of large exercise equipment you include in your room you can make this room even more upscale. Investing in a sauna and/or tanning bed will provide the perfect source of relaxation after a strenuous workout.

If you are a creative having a room solely dedicated to your craft is a dream come true. Whether you’re a painter, writer, scrapbooker or seamstress a whole room to neatly organize the tools of your trade is a new level of freedom. Most likely you are accustomed to packing up and stashing them away after each time you create. Claim your space and let your artistic genius flow!   

An increasingly popular addition in new homes is a gaming room. And not in the sense of darts and foosball. Instead, homeowners are creating a space dedicated solely to their multiple video game consoles and creating the perfect gaming environment. Installing surround sound and a large widescreen tv will have you feeling completely immersed in the game experience. A comfortable sofa and well-stocked mini fridge will keep you fueled for those long hours invested in beating your next game.

Another popular choice is a sports bar or what many would call a “Man Cave”. As with a gaming room, you’ll want to create the ultimate game day experience with surround sound and a large high-def tv. Leather couches and a wet bar that includes a built-in beer fridge are a must for this room. Bring in a healthy dose of team pride with framed posters, signed memorabilia and mascot emblazoned items. All that’s left is to prep some game day snacks and stock the fridge before inviting guests over to cheer on the home team.

A spare bedroom should be taken advantage of. Don’t let it become a giant storage closet or a hardly used guest room. Instead, create a room that is unique to you and your lifestyle. Whether you’re a creator, a gym junkie or game fanatic your own room will get more than its share of usage. By investing in your own interests you’ll be gifting yourself downtime and a happier future.
