Transforming an extra room into a guest bedroom is a great way to accommodate visitors to your house and can encourage friends and family to visit even more often. However, one of the issues most homeowners face is trying to best utilize the space in that extra room. It can be tough to find furniture that can fit in a small room, let alone place it in a way that feels welcoming and comfortable rather than confining for your guest.
Here are some ideas you can work with when trying to maximize space in a small guest bedroom:
Attach shelves to the wall
Wall-mounted shelves have become a popular piece of furniture for modern-style homes in the past couple of years. They have replaced the traditional bulky bookshelves that would take up an entire wall of a room. With a wall-mounted set of shelves to replace bookshelves and headboards, you can place your books, clothing, picture frames or home décor items without sacrificing floor space.
Mount storage cabinets to the wall
If your guest room isn’t large enough to fit a nightstand, then a wall-mounted cabinet is a useful alternative. Nightstands usually occupy the space next to a bed where people typically put an alarm clock, store their glasses while they’re sleeping, or charge their phone or other devices. A wall-mounted cabinet can hold those items as well as additional items such as clothing, medicine, emergency items, and more.
Save space with a Murphy Bed
Beds typically occupy most of the space in a guest room and people tend to sacrifice room space for a large comfy bed or settle for a single bed, which typically isn’t as comfortable for an adult to sleep on. Murphy Beds offers a perfect solution to this problem, folding away horizontally during the day and turning into a comfortable, regularly-sized bed at night. Our Murphy Beds, or Wallbeds, fold out horizontally to reveal a regular mattress inside, and bed options are available in different sizes depending on the model, with a Queen mattress being the typical size.
Murphy beds can come with cabinets or without, based on the style you want and the amount of space you have in your room. Give us a call at WallbedsUSA today, and we can help you find the perfect solution for your guest room!
