Using your spare room

Turn that spare room into your ideal space

It’s a perfect time to check out the properties on offer at Deptford Landings, with 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments available you could find the perfect home. Particularly with our 3-bedroom apartments, there’s so much opportunity to fulfil those dreams of having your own at-home yoga studio or work-out room or how about a craft room for that side-business you’ve always wanted to start? We wanted to share some of our favourite ideas to fill that empty spare room.

Work in style in your new office!

With working from home becoming the norm for lots of workers, that home office could give you the peace and quiet you need to get those essential tasks done and to keep those files in order. It’s a great way to properly switch off at the end of the day by leaving all your equipment in that room and closing the door to enjoy that quality family time. There are so many ways you can make it stylish too so that you can enjoy your working days – we suggest a cork board that you can put colourful memos on or a sturdy chair to keep you comfortable and to promote good posture whilst working.

Fitness and Wellness at home

How much easier would it be to stay motivated if you knew your gym was just next door? You can get the equipment you really need without the gym membership and choose the layout that you really want. If you prefer a little privacy when you’re working out, a personal gym is a great idea and you could even decorate the room with motivational quotes to inspire you every time you walk in. Alternatively, you could turn this extra space into a wellness room – perfect to do that morning yoga away from the outside world and ready yourself for the day ahead.

Get crafty in your own hobby spot!

Whether it’s hand-made cards, painting or weaving, you deserve a dedicated craft space to store all of your projects, or even begin your own side hustle from home. There are so many ways you can use your creativity and passions to gain more income and having a space that allows you to express your personality with quirky furnishings and bright lighting means you can create your best work and take great photos for your website and social media. If you have multiple hobbies, you could incorporate adjustable shelves and storage units to accommodate all your tools and equipment and separate them to your liking.

We think you’ll love Homesense and their unique range of items. Their website is a great source of inspiration for your creative space and they even have a branch nearby in Greenwich.

The possibilities are endless for what you can do with your extra space and now that Deptford Landings has a First Time Buyers offer, it’s an ideal time to take a look at what we have on offer and take the opportunity to move even closer to buying your dream home.
