The workout room is also one of the best ways how you can repurpose a spare room in NYC

Especially during this pandemic period, people became lazier. We have all put on some weight, but now is the perfect time to break up the vicious circle and focus on your training. Whether you practice yoga, meditate or do something more aggressive, by having your own space for it you will be happier a lot. If you have never had space for the treadmill you have always wanted to buy, the time is now. In addition, you can run, or do strength training for example. So get that equipment out of storage units Brooklyn and get ready to rock on! You will be more motivated, excited, and better disciplined. Quit using your equipment to hold dirty laundry, and get back in shape!

Home office

In addition to us becoming lazier during pandemic, almost all of us is working remotely. Some managers consider that it will stay like that even after the pandemic ends. So, if you are not one of the people who will need commercial movers Williamsburg,  creating a cozy home office is a perfect way to use the spare bedroom in your apartment. By creating an efficient room with modern furniture, you will become more productive. It does not have to be big, but it is enough to have enough space for your laptop that is near an electrical outlet, and an office chair that is comfortable for longer sitting.


If you were one of those kids that dreamed of having their own private library when you grow up, you can consider this spare room as a sign from Universe. Even if the room is small, you don’t have to make it a traditional living room library. You can play and make it hipsterish, fun, and colorful. On the other side, you can also make it darker, if that is more suitable for you. The library can become your own personal “book cave”.  Just make sure that the furniture is comfy enough.

A bar

Especially if you are born an entertainer, repurposing the room in a form of a bar will be like dreams coming true. If you have always fantasized about it, now it is your turn to make a dream come true and have parties all the time. Instead of a traditional guest bedroom, make space for your own type of bar. You can make it discreet, or you can create your own lounge space where guests and friends can gather and mingle.

By making a bar at your own place, your life will be a lot more fun.

Never be afraid of changes. If you create your own bar, you will meet a lot of new people. In case you choose to make it a home office, you can even start running a start-up eventually. The workout will make you more confident and more flexible, and the books can make you feel more relaxed. No matter how you will repurpose a spare room in NYC, you will not make a mistake!

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
