We are always short on space and rooms aren’t we? (Though if you have been cleaning up and sorting, you may have a bit more by now!) However, have you thought about have a room being dual purpose? For example, a guest room could be turned into a home office or a sewing/craft room in between times. A Dining Room, could perhaps do double duty as an office or a library. Both of these rooms need to be warm and cocooning, not to mention interesting, so the decorating scheme would fit either way. It is also possible to put a corner of a room to a different use – for instance a desk area in the corner of a lounge, or in a hallway. Bookshelves can make a hallway really interesting.
Here is another interior by Ilse Crawford, in which a ‘kitchen’ wall has been put to great use as a bookshelf. The table then does double duty as a desk. How clever.
And what a great idea pictured below where a pull out bed actually looks like a display cabinet. Clever again.
Then there is this innovative idea that you could use for a home office-bedroom double duty…or maybe for the room at the bottom of the garden! How simple is this? So, you can have more guests to stay and get more space for yourself at the same time. Perfect!
