Our Bonus Room

I think I have just about showed each of the rooms in our house. I just a have few more to go. This week I thought I would show you guys our bonus room.

This is probably the biggest reason we bought our house. The funny thing is, it wasn’t something that was on either of our wish lists. We knew we wanted a separate study and at least 3 bedrooms. We wanted a bigger kitchen and bigger master bathroom and a good size backyard. We wanted a neighborhood in a good school district, with a playground and a pool. But as soon as we walked through our house, we realized we both wanted a bonus room too.

We looked at a few more houses after seeing this one, and even though most of them matched our wish list, we just couldn’t stop thinking about how great it would be to have a bonus room.

Our house is mostly one story. The only thing upstairs is a large bonus room, two closets and a full bathroom. Right now Jon probably uses it the most since that is where his Xbox is. We also have a sleeper sofa up there so it makes a perfect place for guests to stay, especially with the full bath. I just know that Aedan and Adelaide will use it a lot when they get older. I know my sister and I always wished we had had a place like it to hang out with our friends in middle and high school.

I haven’t done anything up there as far as decorating goes. Eventually, we want to get new couches for our living room, so the ones we have may move up there. Down the road maybe we will get a big sectional for the space. I need to hang up curtains, but I should probably start with hanging some downstairs first.

I think it would be fun to decorate with big movie posters since that is probably want we will use the room for the most. Jon wants to get a much bigger TV and I think a game table in the corner would be perfect.

How great is this closet? The one next to it is huge, but it is also a mess so I’ll just show you the pretty one.

As with most of the rooms in our house, we have big plans. Luckily we plan to be here for the long haul so we have a while to tackle everything. :)
