Need Help Making guest bedrooms of 10'X11' room

Stephanie WigginsJanuary 9, 2013
I had a house built and the 2 guest bedrooms are 'tiny (10ft X 11'). I don't think a dresser or chest of drawers will fit in the rooms, with a full size bed; not to mention nite stands.Each room has one window.

HI -- The best solution is a murphy wall bed system that has the bed that hides away and storage and also night tables that you could have on the biggest full wall .

Check out the bedrooms here on Houzz under "storage beds" or "tiny bedrooms". I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at the some of the innovative ideas for solving your space problem.

No problem. A queen size bed is 60 x 80". Place it on the 11' wall and use one of the 2 drawers chests shown below on the near side of the bed. It's 30.75" wide. Those drawers will substitute for a dresser. Place the round table, below, on the other side of the bed.

Put a table lamp on the chest and place on swing arm lamp on the wall above the small round table.

Your bed will actually extend about seven of the ten foot dimension of the room, leaving a nice three foot traffic space. It would be handy if you could fit a very small chair in a corner.

I'd count on using space UNDER the bed for storage by putting the bed up on a platform. We did that with ours and used our previous water bed frame and drawer frames: we set the drawers and their frames where we wanted to match the mattress size we got. Then we used the side frame boards (laid flat, of course) for the actual cross beams, to support the mattress/box springs. Night stand trick: the frame board at the head of the bed extends out well past the edge of the mattress/box springs, and became a night stand on either side! Still have floor space underneath that piece for a nice basket or some other storage niche and a place to put a clock/phone/alarm right next to the bed. Waterbeds are not can buy them second-hand pretty cheaply...and you don't need the "mattress/bag" from it , which is usually the part that's the reason it's being sold. Just a thought.
