Five Ideas for Converting an Empty Bedroom into a Relaxation Retreat


An empty bedroom can be converted from an unused space to a relaxation retreat. With a bit of imagination you can totally revamp the space and turn it into something useful. Extra space is highly sought after by most homebuyers so your renovations will probably give you a good return on investment too.





Think outside the square. Think transformation. Let your imagination go wild and write down all the possible things you could do with an empty room. Let your mind dream up lots of possibilities. Think spa, massage room, meditation area or a personal gym. Some of your ideas may be impractical, but you can cross those out later.

Many modern house plans include extra rooms for non-specific purpose. These can be used by the owner as desired. They may become a home entertainment room, a library or even an exercise room. Check out http://www.coralhomes.com.au/ for examples of home plans.

A Room of Your Own

Most rooms in the house are shared, so the idea of creating a living area that is just yours to enjoy can be really inviting to people who like privacy. You can paint it your favourite colour, add a comfy couch for lazing on, a rocking chair for reading, a water feature, dim lights, music, candles, whatever floats your boat. The man of the house might like his own room too; somewhere to put a big screen to watch the footy with his mates. Having a room to use as you wish can be a great place to unwind.

A Guest Suite

If you love having guests you could turn an empty room into a relaxing guest area. It’s a lovely idea to create a sitting room just for guests to enjoy. This will give them the ability to have some privacy and also allow you to have space from each other. If you want to spoil your guests you can add a big screen television, a comfortable lounge and even a mini bar!

Room to Play

Another idea is to create a play room for adults. You can set it up with a card table for poker or a few rounds of mah-jongg. If you have an artist in the family you can turn it into a studio space. Take up any carpet, let the natural light shine in and let the creativity begin!

The Home Office

Many people work from home or have an office at home. You can add a desk or two to an empty bedroom, perhaps a filing cabinet, some shelving and a nice plant and presto, you will have a great home office space. Add personal effects like photos and favourite artworks.

A Storage Space

A spare room can be converted into an excellent storage space. Just take up the floor coverings and add shelving. While it might seem extravagant to use a room for storage, it will have the benefit of helping to keep the rest of your house clutter free.

Colosseum: Gladiators' Battleground

I can't forget the moment I stepped on the ground of this historic Flavian Amphitheatre. I thought I'm hearing the loud voices of spectators around the arena whose watching gladiators fight for their lives.  Colosseum was constructed 70-72AD. It is found at the heart of Piazza del Colosseo (Rome, Italy). The seating capacity of this elliptical amphitheatre is 50,000 spectators. Imagine how big is the place? This place is one of the popular tourist spots in Rome. I suggest that if you plan to go there, book your tickets online. This is to avoid the long queue and the big disappointment of not getting inside.  Colosseum admission fee: Full ticket - €18.00 EU reduced ticket - €13.50 (available only for European citizens aged between 18 and 25)  EU complimentary ticket- €6.00 (available only for EU citizens aged above 65 and under 18) Opening hours: Mid February - mid March: 9 AM - 4.30 PM Mid March - end March: 9 AM - 5.00 PM End March - end August: 9 AM - 7.00 PM

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in

House as Clean as a Hound's Tooth

Modern cleaning products contain harmful ingredients. Anyone in contact with these products can be affected rendering health problems like irritations, allergies or even respiratory illnesses. It cannot be denied that  household cleaners  available in the market will give us outstanding results. But, are they truly safe for us to use? Be extra careful in choosing cleaning goods. Loads of toxic ingredients might be in the formulation and just waiting to attack. Toilet bowl cleaner for example has chlorinated phenol that are harmful in respiratory and circulatory system. Ethylene Glycol Butyl Ether is present in all purpose cleaner and other cleaners damages nervous system, liver and kidney. Deodorizers has formaldehyde, which is a respiratory irritant and probable human carcinogen under conditions of unusually high or prolonged exposure. These are just few of the many hazardous chemicals composing cleaners. Unfortunately, it is not easy to pin point goods with hazardous ingredients. If
