However, your spare bedroom now is probably filled with all the junk and items you don’t have room for anywhere else in your house. If you clean this room out and move those items into Manly storage from EJ Shaw Storage, you can turn your spare bedroom into a money-making machine.
Rent out the Room on AirBNB
Advertise online that you have a room available to rent. If you have a second or spare bathroom, consider dedicating that to the bedroom as well. This will increase the amount you can reasonably charge to rent the space.

Before you can have anyone move into the room, you will need to freshen it up a little but and move all your excess belongings into Manly storage, you can set the spare bedroom up as a bedroom again.

Il suffit quelquefois d'un petit changement dans la façon dont nous menons notre vie, pour reprendre de l'allant et redonner du sens à nos investissements. #lunnevapassanslautre #homedecor #home #homesweethome #sweet #cute #room #ideas #decoration #table #picture #homedecor #design #decoração #decor #panier #furniture #igers #interior #accessories #apartment #boho #amazing #bedroom #bed #plaid #cushion #tapis #wood
To create a more aesthetically pleasing setup on the bed, consider using pillows in three to four different sizes and incorporate different textures, for example a knitted throw and fluffy cushions.
Some small final touches to the room may be the difference between someone paying $50 per night and $100 per night. Consider elements like lighting, indoor plants, artwork on the walls and matching rugs, it could also be handy to add some curtains in order to reduce the light in the mornings.

If you like the idea of renting the room but don’t want to commit to having a housemate for a significant period of time, lodging tourists is a good alternative. You can turn your spare bedroom into temporary accomodation for tourists and backpackers. Decorate the room to create a warm, comforting environment. You can increase the prices slightly to include services, such as breakfast and refreshments.
If you’re not open to having someone new come and permanently or temporarily live in your house, there are other ways you can make money. You can turn your spare bedroom into a home office, where you can run a small business. Try and think of a way to turn your hobby into a business. For example, if you love to knit you can create an online store to sell products. If you love to read, you can create a blog to review and promote books and make money from advertisers. It will be a lot of hard work, but loving what you’re doing will make the process more fun.
