Deciding what to do with a spare room can be tricky. Not everyone is lucky enough to have the extra space and for those that are, narrowing down what the best line of action to take isn’t easy! Most people tend to keep their spare rooms as bedrooms for guests, but if you don’t have regular visitors and could really make use of having something like an office instead, things can get frustrating. But, there is a great solution!
