The Guest Bedroom

When we moved into our current house, a guest bedroom was on my must-have list.
It was the first time I was moving away from the city I grew up in
and I really, really thought it was essential, especially so that the grandparents
could come and stay for extended periods of time.

Well, I got that bedroom and we threw the extra furniture in there,
including the bottom of my sons bunk set (a double bed/single combo set).
He was only four then and the twin was all he needed...
well he is 10 now and quickly outgrowing the twin.
So, it is time to move the double bed downstairs
and give him the space he needs.

That leaves us with the issue of needing a bed for the guests.
And maybe this will inspire me to fix up the room a little too
(it just may have the underwater themed wallpaper border
from the last homeowners up still...just maybe!).

I found these amazing platform beds and I really like the style of them...
simple, classic and chic! My guests would be so happy on a bed like this.

Better yet, I discovered a huge selection of platform beds with storage.
Now you are speaking my language!
Form + function - perfection!

Some of my favorite selections are:

(heck I think I want this for my own room!)

The design is classic, the storage amazing, and a great price!
I do like to leave books and magazines upstairs for the
guest to peek at when they need a break from
the craziness of the rest of the house.

This sleek and clean design of this bed in an Espresso Finish 
is another option that catches my eye

Well, I am feeling a little guilty, maybe my son just needs a new bed.
We are getting ready to makeover his room too
(he's been asking for a big boy room for year now).
Look at this gorgeous storage bed -
room for all of his treasures and books and, well, stuff!
Man, my house is in transition right now...hope I can keep up!

Is there anything special you do for your guests?

  1. Ummm... answer the door? Okay, that's just wrong. These are gorgeous. The main thing I always do is be sure to offer reading materials, a great beside reading light and table!

    Hope your Memorial Day weekend is going swell.

  2. That first Blue & White bedroom is perfect. I LOVE that bed! I prefer light and airy looks in a bedroom.

    I make Sour Cream Coffeecake or muffins or cinnamon rolls and fresh brewed coffee for my guests in the morning. I'll also do dinner and lunch several times during their stay, it depends upon their schedule.

    I'm working on making the room better and your post is very inspirational!

    Kind regards, Kitty

  3. Unfortunately we don't have room for guests to stay with us. We barely have enough room for us. I love all of these beds. They look amazing. I would love the bookcase bed fir my son. I am redoing his room this summer.


  4. I really want to have this bed. This bed is suitable for people who want to have a bed with storage drawers. I want to have this bed with the white color because I loved white color.

  5. Your guest room bedroom concepts are amazing. I would like to incorporate a little bit of all into a good design.

  6. The one from Espresso Finish is really eye-catching. It makes me think of my blended coffee with its green and brown design.


Thanks for stopping by and joining the conversation! I sure hope you come back for more!
