Flex Space Design at its Finest

It’s no surprise today’s home buyer wants loads of function and flexibility! No matter what you call it, a flex space, bonus area or multipurpose room is the perfect place for a buyer to portray their preferences and maximize a home’s square footage. But what exactly does a flex space need to be fully functional and appeal to potential home buyers? We’ve developed four features that are true signs of a well-designed flex space.

Let Light Shine!

Create an open, airy environment by taking full advantage of natural light. Home owners want a private escape to possibly watch the big game, dive into a book or create crafts. So, features such as large windows or sliding glass doors produce a bright and refreshing flex room they’ll want to utilize.

Storage Solutions

With multiple functions, comes multiple amounts of “stuff.” Since a majority of these rooms having a slightly smaller square footage, flex areas must embrace smart storage solutions that keep clutter clear and the space spotless. Built-ins, as well as custom cabinetry, are inventive ways to achieve storage demands.

Merchandising Matters

It’s important to highlight how a flex space can address a variety of purposes. For example, with creative design and thoughtful merchandising, such as a swing out desk paired with a murphy bed, a room can embrace a stunning home study as well as a gorgeous guest suite (see photos below).  

Create Customization

Buyers crave the capability to customize! By pre-planning and offering options to customize a flex space a home owner can truly design the room to meet their needs, whether this is a game room, guest suite, home office, etc.
