Sea-Inspired Getaway To provide visitors with a true vacation, turn your guest bedroom into a coastal-themed getaway. Rate My Space user KarenSpirit installed a light and airy beadboard-style molding across the room to coordinate with the crisp white bedding and sandy accents. The pops of asparagus green and ocean-water-blue add an elegant and sophisticated feel to the space, and the color scheme also instantly invokes a welcoming effect, leaving guests feeling comfortable and at ease. Loft Luxury A finished attic is an excellent place for a guest bedroom. If the attic is one large space that can’t be separated, your guests will benefit even further from the privacy. Keep the decor simple, but offer a reading nook and take advantage of the natural coziness. Double Occupancy For those who entertain often, a double-occupancy room with two twin beds is a simple way to ensure you always have plenty of room for overnight guests. If the room is large enough, you can add a separate sitting area with a sleeper sofa to provide additional sleeping space — an extra bonus, especially during the holidays. Design by Linda Woodrum for HGTV Dream Home 2010 A Peaceful Escape Make your guests feel right at home with a quiet and cozy suite like this traditional guest bedroom from HGTV Dream Home 2009. Designer Linda Woodrum wanted to create a comfortable, lived-in space with soft buttercream walls and heirloom-style fabrics in various patterns and textures. The damask reading chair and piping-trimmed ottoman provide the perfect spot for guests to prop up their feet and unwind at the end of the day. Meditation Guest Space Although many guests prefer a comfortable, lived-in space, others enjoy one that resembles a contemporary, clean-cut hotel room. Rate My Space user Patrick turned a spare room into a Zen-inspired guest bedroom/meditation space with minimal decor that allows guests plenty of room for luggage. The sofa can quickly be extended into a bed at night and then folded right back up during the day. Lightweight furnishings allow visitors to move pieces around at ease, turning a coffee-table cube into a nightstand. Simplistic Living Oftentimes friends and family are seeking an escape from reality while away from home. The simple vintage-inspired guest bedroom from DIY Blog Cabin 2011 offers a door leading to a second-floor balcony. If you can offer a small balcony or patio, provide comfortable seating or Adirondack chairs where visitors can lie back and watch the sunset or enjoy a midday read. The simplest retreat will become the trip’s fondest memory. En Suite Accommodations A guest bedroom with an en suite bathroom will really give your visitors that extra element of comfort and privacy. Plus, it turns your accommodating and guest-ready retreat into a hotel- or resort-style room of sorts. With plenty of fresh flowers, plush pillows and fresh linens, your friends and family will never want to checkout. Daybed in Disguise An additional space-saving idea for frequent visitors is a trundle daybed. Designer Andreas Charalambous used a slipcovered trundle in this study/guest bedroom that sleeps two when extended. But during the day, its canvased, contemporary form is the perfect spot to curl up with a good book. Multipurpose Spaces Sometimes it’s not the space that’s an issue but choosing how to utilize the space. Guest bedroom, home office or exercise room? Luckily one room can perform many functions. Designer Erica Islas knew this space would be used as a home office much more often than as a guest bedroom, so she successfully combined both spaces without making the room feel tight. The Murphy bed can be pulled down when visitors stay over, making them feel comfortable and right at home. The rest of the time, though, the space feels entirely like a spacious home office. Guest Bedroom Convenience A home library or study is the ideal place to house a sleeper sofa for the occasional guest. Designer Leta Palatino-Ash used a neutral color palette with rich accent hues and warm wood furnishings. Surrounding the sofa are shelves and shelves of books to make guests feel cozy, comfortable and instantly at home. Modern Murphy Bed If you love to host friends and family on the weekends, don’t let your lack of square footage get in the way. A Murphy bed is a simple solution to small-space dilemmas. In this guest bedroom/study, the custom cabinetry slides open and transforms from a wall-to-wall bookcase into a temporary bed for the occasional visitor. When the guest leaves, simply fold the bed back into the wall to reveal the bookshelf again. Design by Andreas Charalambous Energetic Flow Mimic your surroundings to really give your out-of-town guests a taste of where you live. HGTV Green Home 2009, located in Port St. Lucie, Fla., has a sophisticated beach-chic state of mind. Designer Linda Woodrum pulled in some of Mother Nature’s finest elements to create a peaceful yet bold island-style guest bedroom. Organic linens, botanical prints, bamboo shades and seashell frames will instantly remind visitors that the Atlantic Ocean is only miles away.
