Welcoming Guest Room Refresh

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Refresh an underused guest room into a welcoming multipurpose retreat where you can get work done and overnight guests can relax.

Guest room bed and upright cabinets.

Remake Your Space

Relaxation Station

It’s easy to transform a typical bed-and-nightstand spare room -- just think utopia rather than utility. Trade the twin mattress frame for a cozy DIY platform bed with built-in storage. Then flank it with freestanding closet units (#339208, #339221, #339217) and reading lamps (#394868). Front the scene with versatile DIY storage cubes.


Wall clocks on a color block.

Block Out Some Time

Hang clocks (#12913) -- set to your favorite time zones -- over a block of chalkboard paint (La Fonda Midnight, #4004-4C) for a new focal point on the wall painted Mark Twain House Ombra Gray (#4004-2A).

Wall-mounted shelves.

Shelf Help Group

Wall shelves (#432281, model WEC-4816; #59836) offer landing spots for coats, bags, keys, and luggage. Baskets (#1303) can be stocked with magazines or extra seasonal items for guests.

Bucket with towels, soap, and provisions.

Room Service

Provision a bucket (#546187) with overnight essentials for a boutique hotel touch.

Storage cube with games inside.

Storage Cubes

Make these lift-top cubes to provide storage, extra seating, and display surfaces. Re-arrange the portable cubes in whatever configuration suits your needs, such as a bench, coffee table, or side tables. Then fill them with board games, blankets, or bed linens. Paint the interior a contrasting color for a custom look.

Daybed flanked by tall cabinets.

Daydream Style

Give your guest room a more casual look with a platform bed. Finish the daybed look with a patterned pillow (#8370644S, atgstores.com) to make a traditional twin bed look and feel like a comfy couch. Cubbies with baskets (#1292) in the daybed, along with drawers and shelves in the tall storage units, provide chic display and practical storage.

Office niche flanked by curtains.

Office Niche

Make the most of closet space by turning it into an efficient workstation. Create a desk and storage area using 24-inch laminate storage cubes (#176909) and MDF panels. Frame your new home office cubicle with curtains (#19673; rod, #274061) and finish it with a chalkboard paint wall calendar (Atlantic Schooner, #4004-6C, and La Fonda Midnight, #4004-4C) and a wall-mounted lamp (#394868). Include a short rod on one end of the closet if you want to keep some hanging space.

Painted wall calendar and desk.

Wall Calendar and Desk

Keep important dates or an at-a-glance schedule posted on a painted wall calendar. For guests, it can become an itinerary of their stay.

Shelf holding electronics.

Device Holder

Stash mobile electronics securely in an easy-to-install wall station. Simply mount a shelf (#307248) and towel bar (#376386) on a convenient side wall. Placed near an outlet, the arrangement also works as a charging station.
