Maybe the pandemic prompted you to start working out at home, or perhaps you’ve always preferred the privacy and convenience of a Home Gym.
Make Use of Unexpected Spaces:
Even if you have limited space, you can employ clever design tricks to turn an unconventional area into a versatile home gym.
Take this hardworking foyer, for example, which seamlessly doubles as a tranquil fitness spot. To create a sense of spaciousness, Camille Bensler of Jonetsu wisely kept the furniture and wall colors harmonious.
A strategically placed mirror enhances the flow of natural light, while transparent chairs in the window coffee nook contribute to the illusion of a larger space. Freestanding cabinets on either side of the room serve a dual purpose by offering essential storage, with one cabinet even providing a convenient spot to prop up the rowing machine when it’s not in use.
Opt for Convenient Storage Solutions
If you’re a regular visitor to your home gym, it’s a smart idea to opt for open storage solutions that make it effortless to access your workout essentials and stow them away when you’re finished.
Blogger Sara Meadows tackled the challenge of managing her expanding collection of fitness accessories by incorporating an entryway storage rack. This unit offers ample depth to accommodate weights, shoes, yoga blocks, and more, while its tiered shelving system slots neatly into the limited space beside her exercise bike.
What’s more, it seamlessly blends with the aesthetic of Meadows’ Home Office, which shares the same room as her fitness corner. This thoughtful design ensures that the storage doesn’t become a distracting eyesore when she’s working.
Create a Pegboard Wall
Lisa Medina of Wildfire Restoration ingeniously converted her formal dining room into an invigorating home gym by crafting DIY modular pegboard units to house the majority of her exercise equipment.
Wooden trim surrounding an existing frameless mirror, coupled with puck lights positioned above and below the pegboard, imbues the space with a studio-like ambiance. On the opposite walls, a tasteful painted pattern adds the finishing touch to the gym’s entirely bespoke appearance, all achieved without the need for structural modifications.
This innovative approach ensures that the home gym not only serves its purpose effectively but also elevates the room’s aesthetics, making it a dynamic and inspiring workout environment.
