Every family has different wants and needs when it comes to their next home. One thing that buyers are always interested in is the flexible spaces of a home and how they can potentially be used in the future. Can that extra loft area be a craft corner, or a game room, or a suite should someone need to move home after college? A buyer wants to make sure that a home will continue to grow as they do and that they can get creative in how they use every inch of square footage to create their ideal oasis.

If you are getting ready to list your home and have a flex space that you were never quite sure what to do with, we have some ideas on how you can highlight the space to help buyers picture the potential the room really has.

Make an office that the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies wouldn’t mind working in - Thousands of jobs are being done remotely and thousands more include work you’ll have to take home, so a home office is becoming more and more of a necessity for homebuyers. Remember that you’re trying to create an environment that people can picture themselves in, so don’t just stick a desk and a lamp in a corner. Add shelving, lighting, and design elements that will make you excited to get some work done.

Gather together your gaming equipment and make a cozy media room - It’s been reported that more than 60% of households regularly play video games, and a gaming room where you won’t be forced to take over the family spaces to play your favorite games is ideal for everyone.

Showcase a hobby space - If you have a passion and can use the flexible space to showcase it, do so! It wouldn’t take a lot of funds to turn your extra room into an art studio, sewing room, jewelry workshop, etc. It may inspire buyers to use the space for their own hobbies and explore new ones.

Prove that home gyms are what everyone should be including in their flex space - Yoga and meditation are becoming more popular, and with soaring prices of gym memberships and yoga studios, more and more people are turning to invest in their own gym equipment and creating a space they can visit anytime they’re looking to workout or find their zen.
