In order to give the ready-made bookshelves a custom, architectural look, Matt and Jodi had a contractor install the two pairs back-to-back. Once the bookshelves were attached to the walls with L-brackets, the exposed sides were clad with luan and trimmed out with 1x3 MDF (medium density fiberboard) paint in the same shade of white as the melamine shelves.
With a stunning guitar display, three TVs and an oversized sectional, this multipurpose room has something for everyone. A hot pink ceiling and colorful throw pillows give the space a fun, playful vibe.
This contemporary multipurpose room is adorned with a cobalt blue shag rug as well as a white rocking chair. A white entertainment center serves as both a bookshelf and a holder for the flat screen TV.
This multi-functional space provides accommodations for guests, acts as an in-home office and functions as a retreat for boys to enjoy media entertainment. The room has little closet space, so an appropriate storage solution was designed to meet all the needs. The wood selection complements the homeowner's contemporary taste but doesn’t detract from the view. Grain patterns, matched to perfection, offer subtle interest. Doors are flush and clean-lined, and hardware is sleek.
Whether you want to play, work or relax this room has a spot for everything. Designer Felicia Foster this space to work as efficiently as possible, so she added a compact desk, a pinball machine and a comfortable sofa to make this a multipurpose area.
To give the open space just off the entry a purpose, yet keep the center of the area open for traffic flow in and out of this apartment, two pairs of ready-made bookshelves purchased from an office supply store were placed back-to-back to act as room dividers. On one side, a private office is separated from the formal dining space and family room on the other side. The apartment's walls were painted peacock blue, which helps the walls recede so that accents of white and apple green stand out.
This multipurpose room functions as a laundry area and craft space. A bold blue island with cabinet space features a butcher block countertop that works great for messy crafts. In one corner, a niched wall works well for a stackable washer and dryer, and on the other side of the door, a built-in bookshelf displays art and knickknacks. A quaint powder room is nearby for convenience.
If your multipurpose space is used by adults and kids, consider upholstery fabrics that will help mask accidents and spills. Medium gray tones pair well together and are an excellent alternative to beige or tan.
This sliding desk is disguised behind a cabinet door, keeping clutter out of sight. A small metal stool fits perfectly beneath the desk. The blue room's sleek design creates a neat, contemporary aesthetic.
HGTV's Fixer Upper turned a bland laundry room into a colorful and inspiring craft room. Two yellow light fixtures illuminate a rustic craft table made from an old pocket door. A bold area rug adds a splash of color, while built-in cabinets boast much-needed storage.
The vibe of this transitional multipurpose room is relaxed and inviting thanks to a blend of contemporary furniture, rustic accents and industrial finishes. A dartboard and foosball table offer fun gaming options, while a TV stands at the ready for movie night. A neutral color palette gives the room an open feel.
HGTV Design Star All Stars transformed this multi-purpose game room with cool blue hues and transitional furniture. Behind the stylish sofa, a dart board is ready to see some action, while vintage checker boards and an old movie reel adorn the wall.
