Having guests can be a wonderful experience.  Providing a place for them to stay can sometimes be a real challenge.   Of course it is easier to find a place for visitors when building a new home or guest house.  Our clients generally want their guests close enough to be included in family activities, but far enough away  for everyone to have their privacy.  To complicate things, visitors with small children have very different needs compared to college kids on vacation.

If guest quarters are located within a home, good sound insulation and easy access to a bathroom are a must.  Locating guest rooms away from the master bedroom and children’s rooms is ideal.

Once basic comfort and privacy  have been achieved, the rest is a celebration of friends and family.  The guest room is a great place to experiment with colors, furniture and design that might not necessarily match the rest of the home.

In the end most people express a love of guests and at the same time don’t want to encourage an over extended stay.
