Read on! Here’s ten flex room ideas that are sure to level up your new home.

Guest Room 

Transforming your flex room into a guest room is sure to save you many headaches when friends and family visit! Keep it simple and minimalistic, or let your creativity soar and decorate to your heart’s content.
