Ready to put the fun in function? Or multi-function, to be more specific. Many of us need our rooms to serve a variety of needs, but sometimes it can be hard to find the space or workable layout. So, we’re here to help with two-in-one rooms that make the most of every inch.
1. The Bedroom/Living Room
Hello, perfect escape. This combo allows you to relax and unwind in every way, whether it’s taking a snooze or watching your favorite movie. The trick is to give your living area its own zone, like we did here. By creating two separate areas, it makes the room feel larger rather than cramped.
As for the furniture, keep your choices slim and functional. We like the idea of two accents chairs instead of a larger loveseat for the seating area, and the TV stand serves double duty as a dresser.
Perfect for: Parents whose kids have taken over the living room.
2. The Living Room/Dining Room
Open concept dining and living rooms are quite common these days, and we’re here to prove it can work anywhere. It all comes down to the furniture choices, like skipping the coffee table and using two accent tables instead. The lightweight design can be easily moved around to serve as a coffee table or end table as needed, while freeing up precious floor space.
The pub table saves even more space, with barstools that tuck under when not in use, plus plenty of storage for dishes. And since you’ll be eating and drinking in this space, consider an easy-clean fabric for the sofa too (like this Revolution fabric option).
Perfect for: Those who live in small spaces like a studio apartment or mother-in-law suite.
3. The Guest Room/Home Office
When it comes to two-in-one rooms, it doesn’t get easier than this one. A simple home office can instantly turn into a guest room with the addition of a sleeper sofa. And it’s certainly not a requirement, but your guests will appreciate going for an extra-comfy option, like a memory foam sleeper mattress.
After that, it’s pretty simple. Baskets offer pretty storage solutions for the blankets and spare pillows. As for the desk, just go as large or small as the room allows.
Perfect for: Anyone who lives in Florida! When you live in the sunshine state, the guests will always come calling.
