Preparing your home for house guests can be a very pleasant experience. There’s something quite gratifying about helping visitors feel welcome and comfortable.
That’s why it’s always nice to have guest bedrooms. But they usually require a dedicated room that is then typically under-used. Here’s a great way to create a multipurpose room that can still accommodate your guests comfortably!
There are a number of ways in which you can improve a room to maximize its use. But one should consider several factors in deciding which option is best.
A pull-out bed under a platform floor is one of the many ways to make a room multi-purpose. This is a good idea if you are not always using the bed. For instance, if you want to dual-purpose your guest room a home office, study, or mini library.
This is also a great alternative to a loft bed for older kids who ‘need their own space’.
Is this the kind of bedroom makeover that suits your needs?
