Add a textured cloth couch or recliner to your space for a comfortable place to perch, especially with textured or patterned fabric, it will give the room that extra touch of intrigue.
Family Room or Kid’s Play Room
If you are looking for a more inclusive room the whole family can enjoy, you can easily create this space by making your spare room or basement into a multipurpose family room, kid’s play room, or workout room.
