Your home gym might be in the corner of a boring area of your house, but it doesn't have to feel like it is. Creative use of mirrors, lighting and dividers can make your workout spot a pleasant and interesting place to be. Photo by Judit Klein.
The right lighting can set the mood for the kind of workout space you want: soft lights are perfect for a yoga room, for example. Even if you use your space for weights or aerobics, setting up some lamps (or installing recessed lighting, if you're up for a little construction) can make for a more energising atmosphere.
If you've got a blank wall to play with, a row of cheap full-length mirrors (like these $10 ones from Bunnings) can make a space feel bigger while also giving you instant feedback on your weightlifting form.
