The holidays are right around the corner – it seems like they really snuck up on us this year, doesn’t it? – and that means you might be entertaining in your DTLA loft or condo.
So where do you put the overnight guests?
Here’s how to turn any room into a guest room.
How to Turn Any Room Into a Guest Room in Your DTLA Loft
First things first: determine which rooms will make terrible guest rooms. Nobody wants to be in the laundry room. Once you’ve done that:
- Think about installing a Murphy bed
- Switch to multipurpose furniture
- Create a sense of privacy if there’s no door on your guest room
While you shouldn’t invest in a fold-up or install a Murphy bed if you’re only hosting guests this once, it might be a good investment if there are lots of holiday guests in your future. You can install one nearly anywhere – and don’t worry, they’re a lot more comfortable than they look in old black-and-white movies.
Futons might not be all they’re cracked up to be (if you’re over 30 and have slept on one, you know what we’re talking about) but pull-out sofas can be pretty comfy. Not enough space for a pull-out? Try a daybed, which you can put in a small office or sunroom.
Sometimes there’s just not enough room for everyone to have his or her own space, so invest in a folding screen, or hang drapes or curtains.
