What Are Flex Spaces
What Are Flex Spaces
March 25, 2021

A flex space is an area of your home that can be customized and used for a number of unspecified functions. The choice is yours!  Flex rooms are designed to be flexible!  We build these spaces into our floorplans so that homeowners can customize their living space to better fit their needs. 

Flex spaces go by many names, whether you call it a loft, a family room, a bonus room, a study, or even a F.R.O.G.  (Finished Room Over the Garage). Your flex space is your area of the home to personalize to fit your family’s lifestyle. Your flex space could function as a home gym, library, yoga studio, playroom, office, guest room, virtual school or home theater.  The possibilities are as endless!

/fleks/spãs/

noun

  1. a room or space within a home that can be customized for an unspecified variety of uses. The purpose of a flex space is to provide homeowners with flexibility as their family’s lifestyle needs change.
    • Syn:  bonus room, loft, media room or family room.
  2. a room or space in one’s home for showing off, gloating, or boasting about.  The purpose of a flex space is to create a room which will make the homeowner’s friends and family green with envy.
    • Ex: “Jan, your home theater is amazing!  I’m so jealous.”  (Jan already knows). 

 

At Stevens Fine Homes, we firmly believe your flex space can be both.

SPARE ROOM TURNED HOME FITNESS STUDIO

LOFT SPACE TURNED HOME CLASSROOM

Loft space turned home classroom

A dedicated space for learning! By turning the Mt. Vernon’s loft space into a home classroom, kids have a quiet place where they can focus on lessons without being distracted by activities going on in other parts of the home. Making schoolwork fun has never looked so good!

ENTERTAINMENT ROOM FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

The Nicklaus plan’s upstairs loft space turned into a fun and inviting entertainment room.

Turn your flex space into the family’s hangout spot! Enjoy together time with the whole gang by turning a flex space into an entertainment room or home theater. By having a dedicated entertainment space, you won’t have to worry about disturbing the rest of the family when the kids have a video game tournament, or when mom and dad want to watch a movie late at night. On top of that, now that you have your dedicated entertainment room… it gives you an excuse to buy that new top of the line TV that just came out. You’re welcome!

CREATE A COZY READING NOOK

An unused corner can become a cozy reading nook.

Flex spaces do not have to be loud or bold, they can also be quiet and cozy. Whether you dedicate a whole room to your library, or just a pair of comfy chairs to create a cozy reading nook… creating your very own reading area, where you can unwind with a good book will be a comfort to book worms of all ages.

WORK FROM HOME: AT YOUR DESK, NOT YOUR KITCHEN COUNTER

Work from home at a flex space

With the increase in employers offering work from home options, dining room tables and kitchen counters across the country have become cluttered with computers, printers, stacks of paperwork… you name it. When your flex space becomes a home office, those crowded counter-tops can be a thing of the past at your very own work station. Increase productivity, decrease distractions and make sure your next Zoom call isn’t interrupted by children and pets in your new office!

ROOM TO SPARE

Turn a spare bedroom into a flex space

A spare bedroom gives family members and guests their own space.

Flex rooms can also help ease the strain of housing a large family by giving everyone their own space. Whether millennials living with roommates, or multi-generational families with grandparents or adult children living at home, family units of all sizes can use an extra space as a bedroom to give everyone privacy and a place of their own.

No matter your family’s stage of life, flex spaces allow you to be surrounded by the people you love… allowing your entire family to enjoy every corner of your home.
