Your Home Office: 7 Guest Bedroom Design Ideas

Renovating a home office into a guest bedroom can help maximize your space and provide comfortable accommodations for visiting friends and family. In this blog, we will explore creative guest bedroom design ideas to transform your home office into a bedroom oasis.

Clear Out the Office Space

Start by removing all the office equipment and furniture from the room. This includes desks, chairs, filing cabinets, and any other items that are not necessary for a bedroom.

Evaluate the Room Layout

Once the space is cleared, take a good look at the room layout. Consider the placement of windows, doors, and electrical outlets. This will help you determine where you can place the bed and other furniture. Do you want some expert advice? Consult with one of our residential furniture specialists to go over specifics, take measurements, and offer design ideas and options!

Choose a Bed

The bed will be the centerpiece of the guest bedroom, so choose one that is comfortable and fits the space. Consider a daybed, futon, or sofa bed if you want to save space. A Murphy (wall) bed is a multi-functional, space-saving option offering versatility without sacrificing aesthetics or comfort for your guests.

Add Storage

Guests will need a place to store their clothes and belongings. Consider adding a dresser or wardrobe to the room to provide ample storage space. If you are considering a Murphy bed, custom wardrobe closets can be built into your design and accommodate any needs.


Add some finishing touches to the room to make it feel cozy and welcoming. This can include bedding, curtains, lamps, artwork, and miscellaneous décor.

Add Functional Furniture

If you have the space, consider adding a chair or small table to the room. This will give your guests a place to sit and relax, read a book, or work on a laptop. Have extra room? Consider adding a desk unit and extend the look of your built-ins.

Think About Privacy

If your guests will be staying for an extended period, think about adding some privacy features. This can include a curtain or screen to separate the sleeping area from the rest of the room. Don’t be afraid to add some flair and purchase window dressings/treatments that give personality and purpose.
