Multi-Functional Modern Guest Room
In the first and larger of the two guest rooms, designers chose twin beds that had a very high quality, modern look, as well as trundle beds for added functionality. This arrangement gives the homeowners lots of options for sleeping guests-the beds can be separate as twin beds; they can be pushed together to become a king-sized bed; they can be pushed together with one trundle out; or they can be left separate with both trundles out. This allows the homeowners to comfortably accommodate any of their friends and family with ease.
Small Bedroom is Multifunctional as TV Room and Guest Room
A small, colorful third bedroom was created during the renovation of this midcentury modern home. A majority of the time it functions as a TV room. A sleeper sofa transforms it into a guest room, and a built-in shelving unit adds storage to the space.
Modern Dorm Room With Multifunctional Furniture and Futon
When buying furniture for a dorm room or other small living space, choose pieces that are multifunctional. A futon is the perfect example; by day it can be used as a sofa, but by night it can instantly turn into a full bed. Here, white tables on casters are used as an entertainment center and a mobile coffee table and the cubed bookcase not only stores books and kitchen essentials, but serves as a room divider, too.

An all-white bed centers this modern guest bedroom with a gray accent wall and floor-to-ceiling windows. Brass accented side tables also give this space pizzas, paired with plush throws and a textured floor rug.
In the guest bedroom, designers chose to accentuate the room's unique shape by lining furniture up along the length of the space. Then, to make the room feel larger, they brought in simple furniture and decor, keeping with a neutral color palette to accentuate the tall ceilings and take advantage of the natural light let in through the windows.
This small guest bedroom mixes warm wooden tones with contemporary black and white designs, from the neutral carpeting to the gray painted walls. The modern metal bed in black works with the black interior closet door and metal framed flanking windows.
Modern Guest Room with Globe Pendants and Tufted Headboard
Take a cue from West Elm, the modern furniture and home decor retailer, which plans to open its own brand of hotels, West Elm HOTELS. Its guest room design has elements you could bring into your home, including globe pendants hung in pairs and a tufted headboard, which could be a DIY project.
Guest Room: Modern Oceanfront Resort in Vero Beach, Fla.
Bright pops of orange bring fun energy to the oceanfront guest room. An orange and white herringbone rug grounds the space and complements the orange and white bedding. Nestled in one corner, an office nook is painted orange to match the color scheme, and full-length windows offer wonderful views of Vero Beach.
Multifunctional Garage Living Space With Kitchenette
To give a family in Santa Monica, California, the multipurpose guest house/screening lounge they’d dreamed of, the design team at Spazio LA turned to an unexpected place: the four-car garage. "We converted half of the space while leaving the other half as a two-car garage," said the designers. "The space now includes a full screening room, a bar-kitchenette, a full bathroom and a Murphy bed for overnight guests."
