What do you wish you had in your home?

Have you got a spare room or space in your home that you’d like to turn into …..? Or do you just crave a special space for something? Maybe it’s a typical man’s den where you watch any sport you want uninterrupted? Or a mini library or reading room, maybe a separate TV or movie room or perhaps just an en suite?
