Flex Into Customizable Living at Your Halifax New Home

Tue, 10 Dec 2013 by Polycorp

Many homebuilders are creating floor plans with flex spaces. This popular trend offers the flexibility of added room for customizable living. Polycorp has included two flex space rooms to accommodate the ever changing lifestyle of your growing family. Here are our suggestions for transforming the flex rooms in your new home for sale in Halifax NS.

Formal Living Room – Dedicate the main floor flex space as a formal living room or sitting room. It’s the perfect retreat away from the kids or a room to host guest. Furnish it with chic furniture like wingback armchairs or chesterfield sofa, glass coffee table, end tables and vintage table lamps.

Game Room – Indulge your playful spirit with a game room on the lower level. It’s perfect for PS4 or XBOX One tournaments as well as trivia or poker nights. Add a foosball or vintage video games or chess/checker board. Install a domino clock and a Scrabble wall feature for décor.

Playroom – Kids need a place of their own. Add shelves and cubbies to keep toys organized. Decorate with kid friendly furniture and paint using bright colors to keep the room practical. Include a chalkboard wall so the kids can express their inner Van Gogh here instead of elsewhere in your new home!

Home Office – Whether you work from home or just need to pay bills, a home office is very convenient. Equip the room with a desk, comfortable chair, extra chairs for meeting with clients, a calendar, clock, stationary and writing utensils.

Hobby Room – Use the extra space in your home to get your creative juices flowing. Outfit the room with a workbench, chairs, cabinets for storage and anything else needed to draw, paint, knit, scrapbook or tinker with things. You may even create something that can be used to decorate your new home.

Media Room – A media room is perfect for watching the big game or having movie night. Set it up with an HDTV, surround sound and a Blu-ray player. Feel like you’re at the movies with comfortable seats, framed movie posters on the walls and a popcorn machine.

Library – Avid book collectors will love converting their flex space into their very own private library. A love seat, throw pillows and throw blankets will help you comfortably escape into a good book.

Workout Room – Skip the gym membership but stay consistent with your workout regimen from the confines of your own home. Include a treadmill, exercise ball, jump rope, hand weights or yoga mats. Make it feel like a gym with wall mirrors and a mounted TV and Blu-ray player for your workout videos.
