Inspiring Business by Sharing Success


Leading homebuilder David Wilson Homes is offering homeowners in Nottinghamshire some fresh inspiration on putting their spare room to good use in the Moorecroft style home at Edwalton Park in Edwalton.

Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands said,

“For those who may not require the extra bedroom in their new home, like with our five bedroom Moorecroft, they have the freedom to use the room however they wish and transform it to their own liking.

“Social media is abound with hot tips on home organisation so we’ve gathered together some of the best examples from our buyers of innovative ways to use a spare bedroom.”

The Moorecroft is a well presented five bedroom detached home. The ground floor is a great family space with a bright lounge, spacious open plan dining kitchen, utility room and separate study. Upstairs are four bedrooms; the master has an en suite and a family bathroom. The top floor is a teen haven with a bedroom, en suite, plus a spare room.

David Wilson Homes’ top spare room suggestions are:

Keep on top of fitness goals with a home gym

For those still striving to conquer their fitness goals, using the spare room to create a home gym may be the perfect solution especially if you’re short on time.

Having gym equipment at home means homeowners can maintain their daily exercise and save on expensive membership fees.

Work from home with a study

A peaceful area to work in would be an astute accessory for working professionals and families with children needing to complete their school work from home.

Opting to use a spare room as a study would also provide an opportunity to develop an office space at the property, with a desk and a computer for the whole family to utilise, as opposed to storing the necessary equipment in one of the bedrooms.

Enjoy some family time with a games room

For many, that dream home would really become a reality with a games room, offering a great area to either unwind after a hard day’s work or a space for homebuyers to spend quality time with their children.

The spare room could be filled with traditional arcade games, a dartboard, a pool table or even a video game setup, in order to make sure people have an area to relax and enjoy their favourite activities.

Create a quiet space for a library

Keen readers might take inspiration from the idea of creating a library in their own home, providing a room of education and imagination for a peaceful evening in a David Wilson home.

The spare room would not only allow homebuyers to store books, it would present the space to rest whilst reading. 

Keep the silver screen under the roof with a home cinema

One luxury every homeowner dreams of having is a home cinema system, with a large screen, blackout curtains and a family-sized sofa.

Creating a home cinema would be perfect for all homebuyers and a great way to make the best use of a spare room. People only have a couple of months with a particular film to get the best cinematic experience, but with a home cinema, all homeowners would need is a DVD and some snacks to make that experience last a lifetime. 

Indulge with a separate dressing room

A dressing room is both a wise utility for those looking to avoid the early morning rush and an excellent option for shopaholics. An extra room to store clothes and support an ever-growing collection of shoes would present people with an area to organise their wardrobe exactly how they want it.

A separate room with a stylish décor, a space for the homeowners’ clothes and a selection of mirrors would not only be a shopaholic’s dream, but a real convenience.

Have some me-time with a ‘man cave’ or ‘she shed’

A ‘man cave’, or a ‘she shed’, could provide a zone for people to spend some time by themselves, surrounded by everything to do with their hobbies and interests.

A retreat to the specially designed room might involve reading or watching television, however homebuyers might choose to engage in one of their hobbies such as art and craft making, or physical and mental practices like yoga or pilates.

Jason added: “Our beautiful new homes are designed by expert architects with modern lifestyles in mind, so are ideal for accommodating all kinds of potential spare room uses.”

Located in the desirable borough of Rushcliffe, on Melton Road, Edwalton Park is ideally positioned between West Bridgford, open countryside, and is just a short commute to the A46 and A52, which is great news for working professionals looking to commute into the city, Derby or Leicester.

Nottingham city centre is just a 10-minute drive away offering easy access to an array of high street shops, quaint cafes, health clubs and bars and restaurants.

And with highly sought-after primary and secondary schools close by, including Rushcliffe School which is within walking distance, it’s the ideal place for growing families to settle down.

The Moorecroft style home is now available to reserve with prices starting from £595,995 and is available with Part Exchange.
