Do you have guests staying over at your place often? This could either be because you are a very welcoming host, you live in a very convenient area for most of your friends and family, or even that you are living in the “family house”; the place everyone has memories of their own. Regardless to the reason, if you’re looking for a more permanent way to help your guests have a space of their own (rather than a pull out bed or sleeping bags), then here are a few suggestions for you…
The garage turned guest apartment
Most people prefer not to live with their children once they’re grown and have a family of their own; opting instead to visit them once every while. If you generally have long-term guests (like your in-laws), who stay for a few weeks’ minimum, then converting your attached or detached garage into a guest apartment can be worth your time and money. Pay attention to making the floors comfortable, and insulating the walls. Apart from that, you might want to think of installing a window or two to reduce the stuffiness the garages generally tend to have. View more here https://www.multiboxx.com.au.
The garden shed turned quaint guest room
Don’t really have long term guests, but generally have a friend or two crashing for the night? Then the shed turned guest room is a great idea for you! Obviously, this is not such a great idea for the colder months; not unless you insulate the shed as well. But for the hot, summer months, this can be perfect; especially if you tend to have garden parties. Be warned that we are talking about fairly large sheds here, and not your average lawn-mover storing sheds. Again, apart from making it pretty, don’t forget to think about the ventilations…!
The guest room from something unexpected
If you have ever received furniture from overseas, then you will be familiar with the uses of an old shipping container Sydney. Some containers are large enough to stand in, and thanks to their sturdy build, can be easily converted into a room. So it doesn’t stretch it too much if you try to convert this into a guest room. If you’re not too fond of making your guests sleep in there, no matter how pretty you could make it, consider turning it into an outdoor storage unit, and use your store room to convert into a guest room instead.
The guestroom that is still a part of the house
Speaking of store rooms…if your home doesn’t have a basement store room to convert into a guest room, don’t be despaired. The old attic is a splendid place to convert into a guest room! Truly. It’s out of the way, and allows our guests a measure of privacy. With the right wall colors and maybe a skylight or two, you can convert the entire feel of your attic; from dark, gloomy and dusty to open, warm and welcoming. Trust us, people love knowing their arrival will not cause the house people any sort of inconvenience…
