Guest room update. OR maybe I should call this how the heck do you make a comfortable space for guests in a 10 x 9 room? When we started working on our small 1950's ranch we took over another smallish bedroom to gain space for a bigger bath and walk in closet. Which left us with only the 10 x 9 room for guests as our main living area. We have some space in a finished basement but really needed a guest space upstairs for the dog sitter and the KIDS when they stay over. It had to be functional, comfortable and perhaps most importantly, pretty. The square footage certainly left a design dilemma in how to fit in the basics. Here is what we came up with.
