I used to collect doll house miniatures. This is a picture from "The Blue House." (If the rollovers in the photo don't work, click here.)
This type of room was a common one in my houses. It was my equivalent to the "Under Construction" sign you often see on unfinished websites. -And this was before I was even on the web!
Any time I had a room that was far from finished, usually a hallway, I'd put out a can of paint and some tools in it so it would look like the room was under construction by "the people who lived in the house." Then it didn't look as unfinished and it "fit" better! (It wasn't me who hadn't finished that room yet! Talk to them!)

Another common room to see in my houses was some kind of attic or "catch-all" storage room. I usually used those to store seasonal items (like holiday items or fake food, or items I was going to use but hadn't yet.) Unfortunately I don't think I have a picture of the "catch-all" room for this house, but there was one. I always tried to make those rooms look as much like a real storage room or attic as possible, complete with boxes and a few representative "attic type" items.

The yardstick on the bench may have been someone's "business card." One of my yardsticks was. In tiny letters, at the top, it had the name, address, and phone number of a craftsman who specialized in miniature tools and equipment. He was giving out his
