You can also add a washer and dryer, along with other laundry supplies, to your spare room so you can offer laundry services to guests outside of that space.

Make-up artists, you can also welcome clients to your guest room studio for make-up services.
Or you can use your spare bedroom as storage space and a photo space for vintage items that you can resell online.
You can also consider using your spare bedroom as a space to store technological equipment such as audio and video recording devices that you can rent to people and organizations who want to use these items without buying them.
Or you can apply a similar concept to large tools or automotive products that people probably don’t own themselves.
Party supplies like tables, buffet setups, and decorations can also lend themselves to a rental business model.
If you live in an area with a lot of tourist activity or bike traffic, you can also start a bike rental business and use your spare bedroom as storage space.
