The future is here, in your gym

Do you need to stay in shape or slim down? Well, there’s no need to buy a pricey gym membership. You can design an optimal, high powered gym in the comfort of your own home. No matter the size of the room or your budget, there’s a home gym design that’s just right for you. You will be spending much of course for buying the exercise equipments but you will spend that once only and you can save more that way. So if you have a spare room in your house or maybe even a balcony or a porch, you can turn it into a home gym. Here are 35 design ideas to inspire you in designing a home gym. You will see that even for a space like this, you can be creative.

Purpose and utility

With clean, white walls and a comfy carpet, this space is full of purpose and utility. Mirrored walls or closet doors are a simple addition to help pull your room together. Lighting can also make a huge difference in making your space an energized one. A funky decoration piece hanging from the ceiling gives this room an easy, yet dynamic focal point, adding interest with little cost.

Alternatively, if you’ve got space to spare, why not make the best of it. Wide windows and an uncluttered floor give this gym plenty of room to grow. Wood flooring adds an element of comfort to your gym while well-organized equipment racks keep everything off the floor and ready to use. A good gym is a gym you want to spend time in. In fact, even working out can be fun with the addition of a radio or a television. Our space is well lit and open and here the space is optimized for your needs.

Even if you live in an urban area and you don’t have space to spare, even a few small additions can go a long way. Bright paint, like this saffron shade, will do much to add a splash of color and energy into your space. Again, here we’ve used mirrored doors or walls- bringing the commercial gym into your own home. Keeping your equipment well organized is a must- nothing’s worse than a space that’s so crowded it’s impossible to use or enjoy.

Warm reds and wood flooring and paneling do much to give this gym a comfortable element. Adding a rug does much to add interest to this floor. With mirrored walls and multiple exercise stations, this space is not only beautiful but optimized to providing you with a full work-out. Even something as easy as a potted plant can do much to pull your space together.

Maybe you’ve got plenty of space to spare. But for whatever reason, you don’t have an extra room to build your gym in. Look no further. This ingenious design not only gives your living room an extra function but adds a neat, almost futuristic element to your gym. We can’t be the only ones who want to reenact some Star Trek scenes in this gym. The secret is in the Plexiglas- utilizing a cutaway wall, this gym is open, modern, and spacious and it’s all because the Plexiglas leaves everything out in the open. It’s definitely a conversation piece for sure.

With immaculate white walls, this gym is almost futuristic. Wide, open windows let in a lot of light and a black rug breaks the monotony of the white without trying too large. If you’ve got a house with an especially nice scenic view, this is one of the best ways to make the most of it. Who wouldn’t feel extra motivated to work out when you’ve got an ocean or a forest behind you?

With the right carpeting and wall paneling, you can make any space, no matter how small, into an ornate, hotel style gym. There’s not much to work with here but it’s still a gym you feel welcome in anyway, thanks to the carpets and modern gym equipment.

A bright, classic, yet not overpowering color does much to convey an energized and youthful look to this home gym. Even your choices in paint can transform a ‘bleh’ gym into a room you’ll keep coming back to again and again. Decorations and pictures up on the wall give your gym a little touch of love, while sleek flooring emphasizes this room’s purpose.

With a few simple touches, anyone can dress up a home gym and turn it into a dynamic, powerful space you’ll want to keep sweating in again and again. All it takes is a little motivation. Don’t hesitate to bring in some colors and other decors into the space. I’m sure you will enjoy your work out if your area is well-designed. We feel that way in any space in the house and same is the case in the home gym.
