Inspired Ways To Create A Guest Space When You Dont Have A Guest Room

Written By: Jaymi Naciri

Not all of us are blessed with enough bedrooms to accommodate every member of the family plus a home office and a man cave and a theater room and a guest space.

This one looks like a couple of built-ins. Nope. Its a wall bed.

Pull-out couch

The knock on pull-out couches: Theyre uncomfortable. And ugly. But todays versions are far from your grandfathers pull-out couch with the flimsy mattress, non-existent support, and limited design potential.

Rich, traditional leather can also serve an additional function. Even better, this loveseat is small enough to work in a smaller space while still providing ample space for snoozing.

"This top-grainnbsp;leather sleeper sofa is just as luxenbsp;as it looks," said Best Products. "A raised base with roomy, springynbsp;seating makes it just right for movie nights, while the interior pull-out bed ensures that it is always at the ready for overnight use.

Day bed

A variation on the pull-out couch, a day bed is a chic design choice for many homes, especially because the >

Also, choose right and youll have a piece that looks like a cool place to lounge, but is all ready to accommodate a good nights sleep.

Want to double your guest space? Look for a daybed with a trundle, like this one.
