How to Create a Shared Guest Room and Playroom
Buy Versatile Furniture in your Guest Room
Versatile furniture pieces like daybeds cater to both adults and kids. Kids can read on them and adults can sleep in them. However, if you want to create a living room atmosphere in the space, a sleeper sofa is more suitable. It offers convenience as users can sit on it and sleep in it comfortably. Get a daybed or a sleeper sofa with a kid-friendly fabric and add some throw pillows to make the room inviting. Incorporate ottomans or benches with storage and side tables with cabinets and drawers.
Maximize Storage in your Shared Guest Room
Storage is important in a room that will be filled with sheets, blankets, books, toys, and more. You can build closed cabinets and high bookcases with adjustable shelves. You can position the bookcases on top of the cabinets to create ample space for accessories. Be sure to fill the bookcases with books for both kids and adults.
Choose a Versatile Color Scheme

For instance, an apple green hue with red splashes or a pastel blue hue with yellow accents can make the room lively without making it feel too childish. You can also paint one wall a bold color and paint the other walls a neutral color.
