Home Office, Guest Room, Or Both? What To Do With That Extra Room

If you have an extra room in your house and have not decided what to do with it yet, an office at home or a guest bedroom are two great options. Many people work from home in the age of technology and it is more convenient to have an office space than to deal with the noise and disorganization that might come with using random places at home to work.

Having a guest room means you do not have to hastily organize a place for your visitors to stay every time someone visits you. You can furnish a room specifically for the relaxation of your guests.

But what do you do when you need a home office and a guest room but only have one space? What if you do not often have visitors and need the office more? Or you hardly use the office and have visitors more? The answer does not have to be one or the other. You can actually have both!

Clear the jumble

Get rid of the junk that has been in the spare room before beginning reorganization.

Select furniture and layout for double functions

You can start with a classic multi function piece like a Murphy bed to make space for a work desk. Day beds are also an amazing choice for saving space. Pull out sofas or trundle beds make great multi-functional pieces that will usually last you many years.

Construct a comfortable environment for work and rest

Choose a theme that works well for both purposes. Simple art and décor combined with bright colors should work perfectly.Some pieces of art and furniture can be remodeled a little or used as is for the new office/guest room.

Deciding on what kind of furniture will best fit your needs can be difficult but there are professionals who can help! A good place to start is Martin Fine Furniture for all your home re-organizing needs!
