What Houzz contributors are saying:
Design idea: Custom bunks over bed.Why: If you would like to be able to fit more guests and have a guest room large enough to handle it, this is a smart way to sneak in extra beds and storage in one design move. How: Work with a contractor or designer to come up with a plan that makes the most of your space. In a smaller room, you may go with a single bunk over a double bed; a larger room may be able to handle a pair of double bunk beds over a queen- or king-size bed at ground level. If you decide to add lighting or outlets, you will also likely need to get permits for the work (and an electrician).Cost: The final price tag on a custom project of this scope can vary widely depending on your needs, the size of your space and regional rates, but expect to pay at least $2,000 to $10,000 or more.DIY option: Position a purchased upper bunk bed over your existing guest bed to squeeze in more sleeping space. To customize the look, paint the bunk and bed to match the wall color and coordinate the bedding on the upper and lower beds.
Sleeping loft. If you have a guest room with high ceilings, consider adding a loft above the main bed for an extra sleeping space. Leave the loft open, as shown here, or enclose it with a partial wall (or curtains) for more privacy.Tell us: Where do you sneak in extra beds when guests come to stay?More:Genius Home Prep: A Guest Room in a BoxOvernight Guests Coming?
