3 Cozy and Contemporary Music Room Ideas

Inspiration for avid home musicians in honor of National Piano Month.

Since its invention in 1700, the piano has been one of the world’s most beloved instruments and a common focal point in the musician’s home. Pay tribute to National Piano Month by planning a cozy and contemporary update for your music room that is beautiful, useful, and will inspire you to become a better musician. Here are our 3 favorite music room ideas:

1| Un Poco Conservatory
One of our music room ideas is to add bay or bow replacement windows for a cozy and contemporary feel.
Push the boundaries of your living or family room with a small bump-out addition for your baby grand with bay or bow replacement windows by Andersen. You’ll give your pianist a little privacy and a spectacular view of the outdoors while letting music waft freely between rooms. Check with your contractor about adding an extra-tall ceiling for drama and acoustics (via Drawhome).

2| Open Call

Are you or your teenager in a rock band? Turn your basement into an open space with room for a full drum set, guitars, and keyboard. When you keep your basement music room remodel simple, you’re leaving room for chemistry and focused creativity between players. Once the space is finished, decorate with pale gray walls, posters in grayscale, and soft, sound-absorbent carpeting that your keyboardist won’t mind standing on through all of Dark Side of the Moon (via Andrea’s Innovative Interiors).

3| Parlor Room Player

If square footage is tight, you can turn any room into a dual-purpose space that you can share with your instruments without any remodeling at all. For this music room idea, try placing your upright piano against a small wall in your existing living room, and you’ll fill your home’s high traffic areas with dulcet tones every time you play. We love this soft grey living room with the piano in the entryway, adjacent to the living area. It is topped, much like a fireplace, with sentimental artwork and eclectic frames that blends well with the rest of the home décor (via Little Miss Momma).
