As you prepare to list your home on the market, one of the property features that can really showcase the versatility of your space is a flex room. If you have an extra, unused bedroom in your home we have three big ideas for transforming it to attract buyers.
Staging an office allows young professionals to easily envision the space as they might use it. And in terms of how to pull it off, it requires little effort. With a few staple pieces, your flex room can easily be transformed into an in-home office.
No workspace is complete without a desk, obviously. But while you might be inclined to place the desk against a wall, we suggest placing it in the middle of the room. This will actually make the space look + feel much larger. Also, if the room has hardwood flooring, use an area rug to define the workspace.
For accessories, we’d turn to the usual suspects: desk accessories, a desk lamp, a small potted plant. If you have room, a couple of accent chairs would look great in front of the desk, while a stylish desk chair is a must-have behind it.
If your home already has a formal living room, another option for your flex room is to stage it as a secondary living room. A loveseat paired with an accent chair is a great starting point. Adding a coffee table and a rug would also be great additions to style out the space. Plus, simple framed art and some potted plants or dried botanicals would make the room feel cozy + lived-in.
Our final idea for staging + styling your flex room, is to create a personal library. For this design iteration, bring in a chaise lounge or loveseat as well as a small side table. Throw pillows, floor poufs and a soft blanket would soften the look and lend warmth to the space.
If your flex room does not have built in bookcases or floating shelves, add a couple of tall bookshelves. This adds dimension and height to the space. Also, tuck in a few items of accent decor to break up the rows of books.
