Multi Purpose Guest Room — Multiple Functions For Room With a Fold Away Bed and Wall Unit Desks

Lower Level Space Provides Flexible and Versatile Retreat For Multiuse

Why dedicate an entire room as a guest bedroom when you have overnight family/company just once or twice a year? This Chicago area homeowner wisened up by calling Closet Works to design a more efficient use of the space — allowing the family year-round use of this room for all sorts of activities. Multiple built-in desks provide dedicated space for a home office and areas for homework, studying or arts and crafts work. The Queen size wall bed remains in the closed position most of the time, allowing a lot of open floor space that can be used for yoga, aerobics, gymnastics practice, garage band (without the garage) and all sorts of activities that require a large expanse of soft, sound absorbing carpeting that is uninterrupted by furniture placement. When a guest bedroom is needed, the queen size wall bed folds out and two pull-out bedside tables created a very comfortable guest bedroom on the homes lower level. There is still room for a nice size television in the wall unit, further adding to the versatility of the room. Rounded shelving in the corner keeps the angles soft and a vertical divider provides space for art projects, oversize books and even games or puzzles.
