What Is a Flex Room?

This is your chance to create a personal space that’s completely unique to your own individual needs and style. Flex room ideas are honestly pretty easy to come up with since a flex room can be turned into almost anything. But to truly do it right takes time and planning.
What To Do With Your Flex Room?
The possibilities are nearly endless. Think about the space itself. What rooms is it next to? What floor is it on? Will it be accessible for guests or something private? Would it be a quiet place to get work done or somewhere to gather with friends and family? With a little time and creativity you can turn this flexible living space into your favorite room in the house.

Use furniture with hidden storage to hide toys or office supplies when you need the bedroom. Include an ottoman, shelves or an armoire for additional storage. Or even an extra refrigerator or freezer for when you need it.
