To begin to layout this room, you must have exactly the dimensions to calculate whether it requires a spacious area with walk-in closets. The answer is often “NO”. If your home is large enough, a powder room attached with guest bedrooms is ideal.
Although these rooms don’t require big space as primary bedroom size, they should be larger than a kid’s room. Consider a queen size bed attached to this room. Also, you’ll need to think about the decorations of that room since your guest will stay overnight. It’s better to install reflective wall art along with bright colors to create a larger-room illusion to impress your guests.

A child’s bedroom doesn’t need an attached bathroom, you can spend this space to set up a study corner or add a bookshelf for them. By utilizing the vertical space, your child will not feel lonely even when your home provides enough space for them!
Since master bedrooms are definitely bigger than standard bedroom size, decor activity for these rooms come with more ideas and functions.
