No Guest Room? No Problem with these Multifunctional Pieces of Furniture!

In a perfect world, we’d all have a lovely wing of the house to accommodate guests and give them all the comforts of home with plenty of privacy. But in reality, lots of homes simply aren’t set up for a full guest room, which can make things a bit tricky when you have overnight visitors on their way.

Fortunately, space-saving pieces of furniture can come to your rescue! Here are some solutions for reworking existing spaces to accommodate your guests.

Spread Out on a Large Sectional

Ahhh…there’s nothing like spreading out on a big, comfy couch to go to sleep.

Large sectionals work great as guest room alternatives because they’re big enough to have a couple of people sleeping on them without any modifications at all.

Our DAY ‘N NIGHT collection takes this one step further and features sleeper sectionals like the Vienna shown below. These great pieces of furniture also have a storage chaise to stash away extra blankets and pillows for your guests. If you want your sectional to serve this purpose, choose a fabric that’s easy to clean and in a dark colour that won’t show minor stains.

With thick foam cushions bolstered by pocket coils and wrapped in soft chenille, who even needs a guest room when you already have this luxurious level of comfort?

Now you see it, now you don’t!

If your living room space is too small for one of those large sectional couches, don’t worry. Even smaller-sized sofas come with hidden beds underneath so that you can reveal extra sleeping accommodations when you need them. Then simply stow them away when you don’t.

Depending on how much space you have, you can get a twin, full, or a queen-size sofa bed to help you be the best host possible.

Have Fun with Bunk Beds and Trundle Beds

Bunkbeds are always a big hit with kids, but they're also great guest room alternatives for sleepers of any age!

Choose the Dinsmore Bunk Bed with a full-size bed down below and a twin-size up top for more versatility in who gets to sleepover. If space is tight, twin-size beds on top and bottom are a great way to utilize your space.

There are a lot of different bunk bed options to choose from for your guests, including ones that have headboards on the top and bottom for nighttime reading and ones that can be either used together or separated into two different beds, such as the Piper Twin/Full Bunk Bed. Now all that’s left is deciding who gets the top bunk and who gets the bottom bunk!

Futons That Play Double Duty

Futons aren’t just for college students anymore!

It’s easy to reconfigure your existing living room, bedroom, office, or basement into a guest room if you have a versatile futon from The Brick. And just so you know, today’s futons look a whole lot more stylish than what you might be picturing from your college days.

Take your pick from luxurious and inviting futons like the Corey Futon in grey or professional leather-look futons like the June Futon in black. We also love easy and breezy linen-look fabric futons to make your multifunctional room look well-styled in both the daytime and at night.
