You have an additional bedroom within your home that is free and available. You may have purchased your home with an additional room that has never been filled with anything or anyone before. You may even be an empty nester whose child has moved away and now you are interested in figuring out what else can be done with this space.

Before you can pursue any guest room ideas, you need to first take the steps necessary in order to clear out that space. Once you get the room cleared out again, you will be able to truly see what size space you have to work with and be able to work with an open floor plan.

If the room once belonged to your child, make sure to carefully store the majority of their valuable items away and place them either within your attic or a separate storage facility.  However, you are going to need to make sure that these items are cleared out in order to pursue any high quality guest room ideas that you may have.

Focus on the Purpose

After you have been able to completely clear out the living space and have studied the open floor plan, the next step that you need to take at that point would be to focus on the purposes that you are going to fulfill with the new setup. What exactly do you want the room to be used for?  Do you want to solely have it set up as a guest room? If so, then you are going to want to design and set it up as a hotel room. On the other hand, if you want to use it as a multifunctional space (such as an office and a guest room), then you will have much more flexibility and can design your room accordingly.
