Made a storage space reservation at Life Storage? Great - let's find it for you!

Time for a remodel? Guest bedrooms present the perfect opportunity to think about your space in a new, creative way. Use these six ideas to inspire your own guest room makeover. And remember: the weirder, the better.


Guest bedrooms are great, but let’s face it — sometimes they inadvertently become the permanent home for all of our paperwork, linens or seasonal items. Rooms that could potentially be our favorite hangout spot in the house become nothing more than extra storage spaces.

Luckily, guest rooms also present some creative opportunities.

What if you could utilize your guest room for your own luxury home theater, the complete home gym you’ve always wanted, or a world-class hotel experience for your out-of-town guests? By thinking about your space in an out-of-the box way (and with just a few updates), you can finally indulge in your favorite hobby, create the retreat you’ve been looking for, and put some life back into your extra bedroom.

Feel free to wander outside the lines.

Whether it’s a hobby room, a family hangout or a peaceful getaway, a few creative ideas and space-saving tricks will have your new room ready in no time.

Before you tackle the new concept for your guest room, you’re going to need to move out the items you no longer need. Life Storage can help save space in your home and safely store your heftier items for the time being. Find storage units near you– and get started on your new favorite destination!
