Home Office Guest Bedroom Ideas

Short on space? We’ve got small bedroom office combo ideas that can help you create a home office that also works as a cozy guest room when friends and family visit.

Home Office Guest Bedroom Idea #1: Stick with a Sleeper Sofa

When you’re trying to make a room serve dual purposes, it helps to conserve space wherever possible. That’s why sleeper sofas can be such a great option if you’re decorating a small office guest bedroom. When not in use, sleeper sofas take up little space, and they also provide great seating options for curling up with a book or chatting with friends. At night, your guests can easily turn the sofa into a comfortable bed and have the privacy they wouldn’t have if they were sleeping in the living room.

Home Office Guest Bedroom Idea #2: Consider a Writing Desk

While executive desks offer grandeur and ample storage space, they also take up a lot of room. If you’re trying to combine a home office and a guest bedroom, it might make more sense to choose a writing desk. While writing desks often come with a few smaller drawers, they tend to fit well in corners and small spaces. Even though they’re small, for most people, writing desks provide everything they need to work from home.

Home Office Guest Bedroom Idea #3: Take Advantage of Vertical Space

While writing desks and sleeper sofas don’t take up as much as room as more traditional guest bedroom and home office furniture, we understand that it can still feel challenging to combine them into one functional room. Taking advantage of vertical space can help things from feeling too crowded. From tall bookshelves to dresser chests, choosing taller items gives you the storage space you need without making the room feel cramped.

Home Office Guest Bedroom Idea #4: Separate Your Space with Bookcases

If you want to create the illusion of two separate spaces, try using furniture to split the room into two distinct spaces: the home office and the guest bedroom. One good way to do this is by separating the two areas with tall bookcases. This not only gives each area more privacy, but it can create great opportunities for stylish home décor and accessories.
