GUEST SPA­CES GA­LORE

Timber Home Living - - Inside Style -

Bunk rooms are a great way to add ex­tra space for guests while also bring­ing a touch of whimsy to your home. Here, the at­tached lad­ders save on floor space while built-in draw­ers cre­ate smart, tucked-away stor­age.

2. If you plan on en­ter­tain­ing friends and fam­ily on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, in­cor­po­rate at least one fam­ily style bath­room into your de­sign. Dou­ble sinks and plenty of in­di­vid­ual draw­ers are a great way to keep coun­ter­tops clear and toi­letries out of sight.

3. Think­ing about build­ing a guest house on your prop­erty? Use ev­ery inch of wall space by choos­ing slim ap­pli­ances, builtin shelves and perime­ter coun­ter­tops.

Twin beds can fit com­fort­ably into even the small­est space with proper plan­ning. In this cozy room, un­der-bed draw­ers elim­i­nate the need for free-stand­ing fur­ni­ture and the high ceil­ings make the tight space feel big­ger.

5. Built-ins are the per­fect way to in­cor­po­rate stor­age into a guest room with­out tak­ing up valu­able square footage. Here, floor-to-ceil­ing shelves and a tucked-in bed add a cus­tom touch.

6. Even a bonus room or mother-in-law suite can come with its own out­door space. Here, a shal­low bal­cony (also known as a Juliet bal­cony) al­lows guests to take in the views and the fresh air.
