Switching gears with sophisticated remodeling ideas

Written by: Christina Kleiner

Whether we want to admit it or not, we all have that one room in the house that gets a little disorganized. It’s the rarely used spare bedroom, office or den, where all the extra “stuff” is deposited and left with the promise that it will be taken care of later.  When company arrives, expected or unexpected, the door is promptly shut and the mess miraculously disappears.  The homeowners of this Tarpon Springs home used to have their own version of the catchall room. It was this room where gifts were wrapped, school projects were completed and hobbies were started. Life was busy and the family was thankful to have a designated area to handle all the activities. A few years ago, when the kids grew up and moved out on their own, the couple decided it was time to make a change. “My husband had his own man cave in another part of the house. But over the years, he’s collected more toys so I agreed to turn the room into his new man cave,” the wife says with a laugh.
