Creative Ideas for Multifunctional Rooms
As your family grows and your life changes, you may find that your dream home needs to change with you.
How can you make the most out of spaces that don’t serve you anymore?
If you don’t want to go through the hassle of moving, consider some of these ideas to create multifunctional spaces in your home that will fit your needs – from a home office to a game room, to a kitchen where friends and family can gather.
Top Creative Ideas for Your Home Remodeling Project
- Home office in your kitchen: With more companies offering work-from-home options, you might find yourself needing a place to set up with your laptop, documents, and other work accessories. Your kitchen is probably one of the more well-lit spots in your home, making it a great option. A built-in desk in the corner or a tiny desk with floating shelves above it are sleek ideas that won’t clash with your current kitchen setup.
- Converted garage for game room or movie theater: If you need more square footage, an option is to convert your garage to a living space. If it makes sense given your other storage options and a safe place to park your car, insulating and finishing your garage can make it just as cozy as your living room. Turn the large open space into a game room with a pool table or hang a projector to make it a great movie theater for weekends.
- Bump out home gym or reading corner: A bump-out is a type of home addition – a small room added on to an existing living space. Add lots of windows for natural light for a great reading space or make a home gym that doesn’t intrude on other living areas in your home.

We came to love our team! Frank became part of the family. Every day the house was cleaned and organized. And Mary had great design ideas and listened to our passions to create the best spa experience.
Todd and Trisha, Commerce Twp., MI

Luerenda, Ypsilanti, MI
Ron and Melissa are amazing and Cy became part of our family. Our home looks amazing because of Alpha!
Daryl & Amy, Ann Arbor, MI
The whole team was approachable and responsive to my emails and questions. I would recommend this company for any project, big or small.
Louise, Ann Arbor, MI
The deciding factor in choosing to work with Alpha was their confidence in the project and completion time line. They have done other renovations for us and it was a positive experience once again.
Debbie, Chelsea, MI
We felt very comfortable when we initially visited Alpha. We felt the staff was open, honest, and wouldn't mislead us.
Jeffrey & Kim, Ypsilanti, MI
Alpha Design's priorities are happy customers!
Hugh, Ann Arbor, MI
Cy was a fabulous construction manager. Always communicated with me about any issues, arrival time, etc... So polite and kind. Mary was also so great. She's so creative!
Karen & Dave, Ann Arbor, MI
We appreciate the quality of the work by everyone who came to our house. Dan Mattes was very patient and helpful and answered all of our questions. Our new bathrooms are great!
Steve and Melissa, Ann Arbor, MI
The entire Alpha team was so nice to work with. Every person we dealt with knew their craft and the final product is an example of that.
Jonathan and Amanda, Ann Arbor, MI
We liked the people. Good working relationship. Design fit our vision. Materials and workmanship were high quality. We would definitely use you again on a future project.
Brian and Joey, Ann Arbor, MI
Ken, Mary, and Phil made the renovation process for our bathroom-laundry room pretty painless. They kept us in the loop, cleaned up at the end of the day, and always demonstrated a high level of professionalism (early/on-time, respectful, reliable, etc.) which made them stand out compared to all the other contractors we contacted.
Adrianne and Chris, Ann Arbor, MI
The new bathroom is great. It was a very positive experience from beginning to end. The quality of the people working for
Alpha is a real credit to the company.
Chris and Pam, Ann Arbor, MI
When it comes to design, cost management and construction, the team at Alpha made me feel confident and reassured that my project would be completed on time and on budget.
Jeff and Mary, Ann Arbor, MI
I have nothing but good things to say about Alpha and what they did for us and our house. What Alpha says they will do, they do. Everyone I talked to had a horror story about contractors. Alpha is the anti-horror story. Alpha is that rarest of commodities – a genuinely reliable contractor.
Tony and Lisa, Ann Arbor, MI
I would highly recommend Alpha to others. The company workers are courteous, show respect and concern for the customer and demonstrate careful and fine workmanship.
Sara, Ann Arbor, MI
In our initial meeting, Alpha was very informative giving us a step-by-step on how and when things happen through the remodel process. Alpha took what seemed to us an overwhelming job and made it a very clear, step-by-step process ending in a great new kitchen!
George and Barb, Pinckney, MI
I absolutely love my house now. It looks brand new, and I have received many compliments from my neighbors (some of whom I have never spoken to before).
Kathy, Saline, MI
To the Alpha team who helped our kitchen be such a wonderful place for us to hang out, cook, and simply enjoy. If we had it to do over again, we wouldn’t change a single thing. We were most impressed with the professionalism you people displayed while working with us. Thank you.
Fred and Barbara, Ann Arbor, MI
We had Alpha build a two-story addition on our 1927 Dutch Colonial house. The design team at Alpha did such a good job of matching the style of the house that people who see it now believe it was all part of the original house.
