Whether you’re a pro pianist or simply love strumming your guitar on the sofa, music room ideas can be a really creative addition to the home.

Primary colours

Chalkboards and music themed wall stickers are a purse-friendly and temporary way to add soul to a teenage music space. And so simple to swap out as they grow older.

Graffiti art

Budding artists could transform the walls of a music room with neon hues and vibrant graffiti art. Or hang up graffiti wallpaper for the same vivid colour and splashy pattern.

Make your instruments the décor

Display and store your collection of guitars on the wall. A great idea if living room storage is tight and you want to get your cumbersome instruments off the floor.

Music room décor ideas – style and functionality

Working out what you want from your music room will mostly define your music room décor. How often will it be used? Do you have space for a separate music room? What sort of layout does your home have?

One important factor to consider is, does your room need soundproofing? Thin walls and loud music probably won’t go down well with the neighbours.

Combine new and old

Don’t worry if you don’t have a huge period home to fit in with your vintage grand piano. A mix of contemporary and modern pieces is really easy to pull off. Stick with pale walls and durable flooring.

Transform a basement

transform a basement into a music room

An unused basement could make an excellent music room or recording space. There are potentially lots of costs with finishing a basement and you’ll need to find a good builder to do the job.

Fit into an open-plan space

This light-filled, open-plan loft space houses this beautiful piano with ease. Find out if your house is suitable for a loft conversion before you splash out on a baby grand.

Go modern

black and white music room

A fuss-free monochrome colour palette looks oh so cool for this bedroom/music space in one. The black and white theme echoes the colours of the electric organ.

Channel a lounge bar piano mood

classic luxe music room

Leafy palms, dark furniture and a natural, hessian rug add up to a colonial-style music room. The result is comfortable and a little bit old-school luxe.

Set up a record player

If you just want a place to play music rather than make it, set up a vintage sideboard with space for a record player and stack of vinyl. A must for all music lovers.

Fit in kit for a DJ

DJ at home music room

Budding DJs will need a high-tech music and recording kit to make their sounds. Check that you have enough electrical sockets in the space you intend to use.

Small music room ideas

If you don’t have space for a dedicated music room, you can incorporate entertaining nooks, listening corners and other musical elements into existing rooms that won’t take up much square footage.

Try our small music room ideas and let the sound of music flow through your home.

Squeeze in a music corner

upright piano idea

Upright pianos take up less space than a grand piano so work so well for an unused wall space or corner of the room. Decorate with accessories and pictures so it blends seamlessly into the room’s décor.

Double up your home office

double up a home office with a music room

Maximise your work-from-home space by doubling it up as a music room by night. Include efficient home office storage so you can declutter at the end of the working day.

Strum on your sofa

If it’s just you and your acoustic guitar, sit back on your sofa at the end of a hard day’s graft and strum a few tunes. Nothing could be simpler or more enjoyable.

Set up a music room for two

We love the harmony of this music space for two. The slick, pared-back furniture, minimal lighting and neutral colours create the perfect listening hub in a small space.

Music room ideas key takeaways

You don’t have to have a big house to enjoy a music room. You might have a space that you can turn into a dedicated piano room, a basement that can be turned into a recording studio, or just a corner of the living room for setting up your guitar.

Creating a music room is all about finding what works for you and your property – and maximising the space that you do have at home.
