New DIY Décor Book Says Repurpose and Reimagine. Don’t Renovate
"Rooms Repurposed: A Purposeful Home, A Purposeful Life” is a guide to repurposing rooms in your home to fit your lifestyle, function to your specific needs and avoid renovations, to get the most out of your largest asset.
By: Eve of Reduction
“Why pay for and maintain something that is underperforming, or one-dimensional?”
Rooms Repurposed works with what you have, from a small nook at the end of a hall to odd spaces and rooms that see no action. This book allows homeowners to break away from the ordinary and customize their space. Why not repurpose dormant rooms into a climbing gym, library, chapel, or video production studio if that’s what you really love. Imagine rooms with names like “book club meeting space, meditation room, first floor laundry with pet cove.” These sound like spaces where you can see yourself living!
To repurpose your rooms, Cristin Frank suggests identifying rooms or open space that isn’t currently being used for something that makes you happy. Typically these areas have large furniture, stagnant possessions, inadequate lighting and little room for movement. Once you identify these areas, make a list of activities you’d like to do in your home. The biggest hurtle is getting over the mindset of what is expected.
The book is available online through Amazon.com and BN.com.
