At Shea Homes® Arizona, our design team spends months, sometimes years, meticulously crafting our homes to tailor each floorplan to specific lifestyles. But no matter how much planning and heart goes into each design, the most important thing is that your home feels uniquely you.
That’s where the flex room comes in.
Flex rooms are designed to be flexible. You might see it on the floorplan labeled ‘flex’, or ‘optional space’, but they all amount to the same thing: your space to do with what you please. This is your chance to create a space that you love to return to, that will wow your guests when you give them a tour.
Here are five of our favorite flex rooms, curated to give you some inspiration for the spaces that will add the perfect pop of personality to your new home.
1. A Hobby Room
You can finally have a space dedicated purely to your passion. Whether you are an artist, a fitness enthusiast, or a collector, flex rooms provide a special area in your home that is solely dedicated to your favorite hobby.
2. An Office or Study Area
Let’s face it, no one truly leaves all of their work at the office. By turning a flex space into a home office or library, you will have a place where you can focus when you need to work late to meet a deadline or decide to work from home for the day. When you are not using it, the kids can use the space as a study area!
3. An Entertainment Room
Turn your flex room into a space dedicated to having fun! Make your home the perfect place for entertaining by creating your own game table room, or a private movie theater. By having a separate entertainment space, you won’t have to worry about disturbing the rest of the family when you break during a game of table tennis, or when you want to watch an action movie late at night. On top of that, your home will quickly become the gathering place for all your friends!
4. A Reading Nook
Flex rooms do not have to be a place to be loud, they can also be a place for peace and quiet. Whether you dedicate a whole room or just a section of a room, create that personal relaxing space where you can go to unwind with a good book.
5. An Extra Living Room or Bedroom
Flex rooms can also help ease the stress of having several people living under your roof. Millennials who are living with extra roommates can use the space as a bedroom. Multi-generational families, those who have grandparents or their adult children living with them, can use the space as an extra living room or lounge to escape to when the main living room is too crowded. No matter what stage of life, flex rooms allow you to be surrounded by the people you love while giving you extra space.
