Small Guest Bedroom Ideas

Even a small guest bedroom should feel comfortable, welcoming, and functional to friends and family coming to stay at your home.

For guest bedrooms that don't have a lot of extra space, it's a good idea to choose multi-functional furniture like a daybed with storage underneath or even a sleeper sofa to make the space feel versatile. Items such as mirrors and window treatments hung high on the wall allow for the room to feel larger than it actually is. To make your guests feel at home, you could incorporate plants and area rugs to create little zones within the room such as a reading nook.

Allow our design experts to take you through all of the important details of small guest bedroom ideas, including how to turn a smaller room into a cozy guest bedroom and how to fully maximize the space.
