Guest Bedroom

Guest Bedroom

Having guests can be a wonderful experience, however 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 overextended stay.

    Hey Jimmy,

    Rooms look great! Are the windows shown in several of the Guestrooms (double hung 2 over 2 and 6 over 6) custom? I need to replace several windows on my home and I cannot find a decent replacement unit.

    Really enjoy OTDB.
