Here are a few fun ways to decorate that surplus space:

A top floor attic:

Here, the attic is converted from storage center to blissful bedroom. Perfect for overnight visitors, this cozy bed works well for children and youngsters. Built-in shelving provides a space for books, toys and artwork, while traditional wall sconces give the room a dose of light. Extra drawers and cabinets offer additional space for blankets, pillows and stuffed animals. A desk gives this room more functionality for operating as a station for homework, craft projects or reading.

Thanks so much to Amy for offering to write this guest post about what to do with rooms that vex you the most. ? Some of us get bonus rooms in new houses, or have an often unused room in an older home. Ideas rift through your mind, but never come to fruition. So you end up using it to store things you don’t need. This post helps you narrow down your choices from the bonus room menu. Guest Post By Amy Spagnola for LuxeDecor
