Workout Room - This was intended to be an office or an additional bedroom. Instead, I had the same hardwood floors run into the room and moved my home gym equipment in. It's great for me, because it has a glass paneled door and good acoustics. When I workout, I like having the TV on and a soundbar to listen to music.
If you have the space, investing in the equipment is worthwhile and saves you money and time compared to a gym membership as long as you have the personal motivation to exercise.
Breakfast Nook - My home's layout features an open concept kitchen / eating space / family room. I can fit a large table into the breakfast nook and just don't have a need for a formal dining room. It's easy for serving food or grabbing another glass of wine.
Many new construction floor plans are incorporating bigger areas for breakfast nooks, which are becoming the primary dining/entertaining spots. Square footage comes at a premium, and you don't want any of it to go to waste. You can actually function better in a smaller house if the space is set up in a way that allows you to use all of it.
Home Office - Formal dining room turned work space. You don't necessarily need an office in a closed off room. I prefer working in an open area, which is why I chose this room with lots of natural light at the front of the house. The trick with having a home office in such a prominent spot is keeping it presentable and organized. Real estate agents work anywhere and everywhere and we need a highly functional set up at home. Utilize pieces of furniture with lots of built in storage.
