If you can’t think of anything worse than leaving the warmth of your own home to attend the gym during the winter then having a place to work out at home is just what you need! You can gradually add more and more equipment depending on what your budget is and what you’re looking to achieve. If you find it gets a little too hot then consider installing an air conditioning unit
- Chillout room
If you’re looking for a place that you can grab some peace and quiet in whilst catching up with your favourite TV shows then the basement is the obvious front runner for that. Fill it with cosy furniture and blankets, cushions and a good quality heater to get the best snug factor you can. Larger than life bean bags are also another perfect way to add comfort to any room and the great thing about them is that you can stack them high on top of each other to clear space for others things when needed.
