Whether it’s used as a movie room, extra living room or study area, flex rooms are unmatched in their versatility. They can accommodate whatever stage of life you and your family find yourself in, and can change as the needs of your family do. Depending on what your hobbies and interests are, this multi-purpose space can be decorated in a variety of ways; draw inspiration from our beautifully-decorated model homes across Houston and Austin to bring your flex space to life.
FOR THE MOVIE-LOVING FAMILY
The flex room at our Reserve at Spring model home in Tomball, Texas, is sure to impress even the most discerning movie critic. With a plush sectional that’s perfect for curling up in, ample storage space to store favourite flicks and a large-screen television that can be cleverly concealed behind sliding barn doors when not in use, this film-inspired flex space is Oscar-worthy.
FOR THE FAMILY THAT JAMS TOGETHER
Whether you’re in a band, are nurturing a budding talent or simply love to rock out, transform your flex room into a cool music-inspired space with comfortable seating, a small table for songwriting and plenty of musical accents throughout, such as oversized throw pillows with vintage records on them. Don’t forget to leave space to showcase your prized instruments when not in use.
FOR THE FAMILY THAT LOVES TO ENTERTAIN
For families that love to entertain frequently, a flex space that has something for everyone is a must. Take a (pool) cue from the bonus room at Hidden Lakes in League City, Texas, and create designated areas for different activities. A pool table is the centerpiece of the room and clearly defines the play area, while behind it, a lounge and bar area is perfect for relaxing and watching the game.
FOR THE FAMILY THAT NEEDS SPACE TO STUDY
Whether you work from home often or simply need a quiet space to work from time to time, transforming your flex room into a home office is always a practical choice. To maximize workspace and minimize clutter, opt for smaller workstations — so that more than one person can work at a time — and desk units that can conceal smaller items like pens, papers and miscellaneous files.
