Life is unpredictable and if yours is as unpredictable as mine, that can mean the arrival of a guest on the spur of the moment. Cue the panic as I scramble to move the make-shift office space I’ve somehow created in the ‘guest bedroom’ over the past year. Could there be a way around this dilemma?
A Quick Conversion
If, like me, you have guests about once or twice a year, then you can see how it makes little sense to have a guest room taking up valuable space that could be used for another purpose for the rest of that year. With a little innovation, one room could be used as a workspace as well as easily and effortlessly converted into a comfortable and inviting guest room.
Furniture Design for Versatile Functionality
Implementing this concept requires a serious evaluation of the type of furniture you decide to use in that room. There are ways to assimilate bedroom furniture with office furniture and make it look like it isn’t so.
A day bed is an absolute must-have because of the versatility it affords – easily made to look like a couch in an office space or done up to look like one of the most important elements in a guest bedroom (duh, a bed).
If selected cleverly enough, a desk can also become a dressing table – insert mirror and there you have it.
Accessorize for a Purpose
Great bedding design goes a long way to ensure a day bed looks like its sole function is to accommodate comfortable guests while they sleep. Fresh flowers are a must for any guest room or any office space for that matter.
