Bonus Room Ideas for the Whole Family

A bonus room is one of the most fun rooms in a house to decorate. Your imagination is the limit as far as how you can use it and how you decorate it since it’s usually completely separate from the rest of the home. You could turn it into a guest room, playroom, movie room, game room, activity center or a combination of them all.

Besides just being highly functional, you can also get very creative with the design. This is a great room in which to go wild with a theme you’ve always wanted to try but couldn’t find a way to incorporate into the rest of your home. If you have kids, you could even let them get involved in the planning for even more fun.

Here are 10 bonus room ideas to give you some inspiration for functionality, organization, and style.

In decorating and design, it’s a lot of fun to look for ways to switch things up. Taking a chance on something unexpected can make for some of the best design elements. One way to do that in a kitchen or bathroom is by opting for a dark sink.

Here are 10 examples of dark sinks in kitchens and bathrooms to show you how versatile and compelling they can be.
