However, there are creative methods that one can use to create extra space to accommodate an entertainment area without making drastic changes to the footprint of your home. Check them out below!
Be Smart with the Existing Square Footage
If you are moving into a new home, make an advanced decision on how you will use the space in your home instead of unloading your furniture haphazardly on the moving day. If you are moving in with a small family or by yourself, you have the liberty to play around more with your space. Prioritise the things you wish to include in your house and strategize from there. This way, you will not have to figure out how to squeeze your game console or music system in your house later on. For people who are moving in with a bigger family or with a baby, some entertainment space may have to be comprised for a baby room or bedroom. However, with proper planning, it is very possible to slot in a small area for your bookshelf or board games at your balcony or the corner of your living room.
Turn a Small, Unused Bedroom into a Recreation Room
If one of your bedroom is barely used, you can consider transforming it into a recreation-cum-guest room that you desire. You can get a sleeping sofa and furniture that can double up as tables and bring in some entertainment equipment. If possible you can even soundproof the room if you are planning to have many noisy game nights ahead. As for the current furniture and belongings in your room, you can consider keeping them in an external space instead. Instead of throwing out your furnishings, linen and other bedroom items, you can simply keep them away safely in the cheapest self storage in Singapore.
