Wouldn’t it be nice to have some extra space in your home?A guest room perhaps? A home office or a hobby room? Maybe you have an infrequently used guest room now, or an under utilized spare room. Most people don’t have overnight guests every week, so unless you have lots of extra space, the luxury of a full time guest bedroom may not be in the cards.
We have some ideas to help make the most of the space you do have available. We would recommend three different types of beds that can be used quite nicely to expand the room that is available in your home. You have to multi-task, why shouldn’t your house?
We have three recommendations for furniture that will enable you to make the most of your space. We will introduce you to all three in this blog entry, and in over the next couple of weeks we will detail the pros and cons of each.
First, the Murphy Bed. A Murphy Bed, often called a wall bed or a fold-a-way bed, is the oldest and most common way to get dual purpose use out of a bedroom space. It folds up when not in use and can be configured with other furniture so as to create a combination space with an office, or a sitting room/library or a hobby space like a sewing room for example.
Our second recommendation is a relatively new entry into the market place, the Hidden Bed. The Hidden Bed is designed so that it contains both a bed and a desk in one unit. It is way cool! The desk sits there begging to be worked on with all your typical paraphernalia perched on the desk top and then, when you are ready to snooze, the desk lifts out of the way and the bed appears, all ready for a good night’s sleep. This is new technology that really makes the most out of a very small space.
Finally, we bring you the Zoom Room! This takes cool to a whole new level. The Zoom Room bed is a completely self contained unit where the bed hides away in the cabinet until it is needed and then at the push of a button, the bed magically appears from the bottom of the cabinet and creates a queen size bed that has more wow factor than one can imagine.
The Zoom Room bed can be configured with a wide array of furniture to create a living room, den, office...you name it.
Well, there you have it. Three separate approaches to solving the “we need a guest room but we don’t have enough space problem”. Over the next week or so we will explore each of these solutions in greater detail with some typical design suggestions, ball park costs and answers to all the questions that you must now have racing around your cranium.
