10 Inspiring Home Office/Guest Room Combinations

So often, I’ve had clients tell me they would love to have a home office and a guest room, but they assume they have to choose between the two because they only have one extra spare bedroom. I’m always happy when I get to tell them, you don’t have to choose.

Even in a small spare bedroom, a home office/guest room combination is possible. Not only is it possible, but both functions can be totally efficient and stylish even when sharing one space. It’s all about taking advantage of the space in clever ways.
