I got this cool email through the contact form on my site and decided to take Derek up on his offer:
Hi! I hope this email finds you and your family healthy and well.
I know we’re all looking for creative ways to keep our children engaged. I’m helping my children with online academic instruction, but also trying to find ways to help them get physical & creative exercise every. single. day.
My first step was to create an at-home, DIY dance “studio” (that’s probably a stretch to call it a studio) for my children because my son loves salsa dancing and my daughter loves ballet. The nicest thing, though, is that my wife has been able to retreat to the studio for her music practice and crafting time!
This newly renovated room has truly been a lifesaver for our family since we can’t do in-person lessons right now.
Do you think an article with tips for setting up an at-home multi-purpose studio would be a good addition to your site for your visitors? I know a lot of musicians who might benefit from having a spot at home to practice their passion.
I’d love to put it together if so. Just let me know!Derek Cannon
Maybe you’ve got a spare bedroom in your house, or your basement has been unfinished for years. Have you ever considered turning an unused room into a multi-purpose studio for your family? You can specifically design your multi-purpose studio based on your family’s needs and interests, and in the future, this studio might even catch the eye of an interested home buyer. These tips will help you set up a studio that suits the space you have available.
The Benefits of a Multi-Purpose Studio

- If you outfit your studio with the right equipment, you and your family can use it as a space to practice playing music.
- Overall, having a multi-purpose studio in your home could entice future buyers and boost your property value when it’s time to sell.
Budgeting for Your Studio
Designate certain corners of your studio for different equipment and then shop based on your needs and how much space you have available.
- Consider including a training bench, dumbbells, and an exercise machine or two on your home gym shopping list.

Cleaning Your At-Home Studio
Once you’ve finished putting it together, don’t let your studio get dusty and cluttered! These cleaning tips will help you keep your studio looking pristine.
