The leading developer is currently building homes at Ramblers’ Gate in Ashbourne, a number of which are three storeys including the aspirational Lichfield, a five bedroom home with spare rooms ready to personalise.

Rachael Harrison, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “For many homebuyers the spare rooms are versatile spaces to make your own, and with a recent shift in the priorities of our customers, we’ve compiled our innovative ways to make best use of the top floor.

“Our Lichfield style home is beautifully designed and whilst growing families might use the top floor to give their teenage children a bit of independence, there are many creative uses for the extra space.”

David Wilson Homes’ top spare room include setting up a home office.

Home Office

A peaceful area to work in would be an astute accessory for working professionals and families with children needing to complete their school work from home.

Home Gym

For those still striving to conquer their fitness goals, using the spare room to create a home gym may be the perfect solution.

Having gym equipment at home means homeowners can maintain their daily exercise, or even build their own yoga retreat.

Game Room

It could be filled with traditional arcade games, a dartboard, a pool table or even a video game setup, in order to make sure people have an area to relax and enjoy their favourite activities.

Popcorn at the ready…

One luxury every homeowner dreams of having is a home cinema system, with a large screen, blackout curtains and a family-sized sofa.

Creating a home cinema would be perfect for all homebuyers and a great way to make the best use of a spare room. People only have a couple of months with a particular film to get the best cinematic experience, but with a home cinema, all homeowners would need is a DVD and some snacks to make that experience last a lifetime.
