5. Make a guest bedroom in your: Living room
More often than not we provide a simple sofa for overnight guests. And of course sleeping in the living room allows them the chance to own the remote control long after you and the rest of your household have gone to bed.
But don’t forget that your guests will have to wait for everyone else to retire for the night before they can. Plus, that bed might need to be set up every night – unless you have two living rooms.
6. Make a guest bedroom in your: Bedroom
Another idea would be for you, the host, to take that sleeper couch and give one of your existing bedrooms to your guest(s). Of course the disadvantages here include the fact that someone will have to give up their room for the duration of your guests’ stay, plus it can get weird if anyone needs to access said bedroom your while guests are still asleep, getting dressed, etc.
7. Make a guest bedroom in your: Hallway/corridor
Depending on your home’s size and layout, you can even squeeze in a sleeping spot in a wide corridor or open-plan area. But although there’s always the option of hanging curtains, this still doesn’t offer guests adequate privacy.
8. Make a guest bedroom in your: Dining room.
It sounds strange sticking your guests in the dining room, but keep in mind that dining rooms and bedrooms usually tend to be similar in size. Plus, as dining rooms don’t usually get used that much, it can make it a more appropriate option than, say, your living room.
Simply move your dining table into a corner or invest in a table that can fold down. And if that dining room can remain a bedroom during your guests’ entire stay, there’s no reason to set up that bed every night.
