tips for guests sharing sleeping space
in your home's common areas


If a room of one's own isn't in the (house) plans for your overnight guests, you can make the most of a cot or inflatable bed placed in the living room.

There are many creative ways to make virtually any communal space feel more private, with a limited amount of expense.

These tips for guests sharing sleeping space in your home can help ensure everyone enjoys the visit.




Provide Privacy for Guests Sharing Sleeping Space

Provide privacy for your guests sharing a community area for sleeping in your home - or at least the feeling that there is some with a decorative weave room divider screen placed between the sleeping area and the main area.

It can make a world of privacy difference. You can use it as a decorative accent when guests aren't around.

Position the sofa so that it faces a wall or corner instead of directly into the room.

Remind the kids that this room is not to be used until your guest rouses herself. (Emphasis on the last part.)

Extras to Consider Providing Guests

These aren't essential appliances to offer, but providing them might get you back in the will.

  • Alarm clock/radio
  • Coffee maker and cups (for really early risers)
  • Hair dryer
  • Reading lamp
  • Small refrigerator (You know, the kind you used in the dorms. Stock it with a few bottles of water and juice and a snack or two.)
  • Travel-size steamer or iron.
  • TV


More Cozy Extras to Consider Adding

More extras: These lovely extra amenities are merely icing on the cake. 

  • Basket of food (fruit, cookies, crackers, tea bags, and instant coffee).
  • Basket, bowl, or, so your guest has a visible place for keys, jewelry, and other essentials.
  • Books and magazines.
  • Full-length mirror.
  • Laundry bag.
  • Lint brush. (Especially if you have pets.)
  • Pen and paper.
  • Warming rug next to the bed (if the floor is hard and cold).
  • Vase of flowers.

You could, of course, provide these for a guest with a room of her own, too, but I have them here out of guilt for the guests sharing sleeping space!
