If you are considering buying a murphy bed for a spare bedroom, you will have a lot more space to work with once it is installed. So instead of letting that spare bedroom stand practically empty all year round, we've put together some more exciting uses for it. You might have a go at redesigning the space and transforming it into a unique creative area that you and your partner can enjoy.

Let's go over some fun ideas to help you convert your spare bedroom into a usable, personalized space that will enhance your home.

1. Grow an Indoor Garden

If you have a green thumb — or want to develop one — and your spare bedroom gets plenty of natural light, why not turn it into a relaxing indoor garden? You can grow flowers, herbs, vegetables, fruit, and a diverse range of other plants. What’s more, you can go for eye-catching, colorful arrangements of plants and pots, and transform the space further with wall gardens. Finally, put in an armchair and unwind amid the soothing greenery.

2. Create an Arts and Crafts Room

Unleashing your inner artist can be incredibly fulfilling, and you can make a habit of it if you have your own dedicated space. Apart from honing your existing skills, you can also pick up new talents. You can write, draw, paint, make pottery, knit, crochet, sew, and attempt a lot else. And as for that finicky part of you that balks from making a mess? Well, you can certainly give it a rest in your arts and crafts room. You’re going to be creative here and being messy goes with the territory.

3. Set Up a Music Room

Whether you play a musical instrument or enjoy listening to music, you will probably love having a music room of your own. It can hold your musical instruments, stands, speakers, sheet music, and other music-related things. You can also practice your music daily and play your favorite songs at top volume here. Of course, if you live in a populous area, do the neighborhood a favor and soundproof your music room first.

4. Establish a Library

Nurture your intellectual side with books, books, and more books. You can never have enough books, but for the ones you do have, get bookcases that will suit the room. We have murphy beds with bookshelves that will suit this purpose. Arrange your books in these bookcases according to author, genre, or spine color. You are finally set to sink into a comfortable couch, sip a cup of tea or coffee, and embark on a literary journey of discovery.

These are just a few ideas to get you started. With sufficient ingenuity, you can transform your spare bedroom entirely. It will become a personal safe haven that brings you boundless delight.
