Converting second living space to fourth bedroom and study

28 days ago

Hi, we are looking to convert either the media room or office in our brick house to a third kids bedroom. In addition to the 4 bedrooms, we need a space to work from home but this could be much smaller than the existing office as long as the space has a door that can be shut.

-if the media room became the third kids bedroom, is there a way to link it to the other 2 kids rooms and bathroom?

-would it make sense to split the media room into a bedroom and a small narrow study?

-the media room has a window half the size of the other bedrooms and gets light when the doors are opened across the hallway.

-the current office is very light with floor to ceiling windows and visibility through to the dining area across the courtyard - it seems to make more sense not to touch this room and to use as either a second living space or office rather than a bedroom. Another option would be to put the office in the master bedroom.

Any advice much appreciated.
