Declutter Your Guest Room

If you are like me, different seasons of the year set off different feelings and emotions. Each season is an opportunity for growth and fun. Summer is for travel, fall is for gatherings and family. Winter is for hibernation and spring sets off feelings of productivity.

This year, as fall and winter passed, I became painfully aware of how many of my projects around the home seemed to pile up and close in on me. As time marches me toward spring, I feel a need to declutter both my home and life. I find it such a refreshing feeling, after having put a little effort into organization and cleaning, to walk away from one of those problem rooms in my home with the feeling an inviting open brightness.

In my most recent quests for help with my craft room / Christmas wrapping room / catch all / problem room, I came across an idea from the past that has perfect application for me in my modern-day, busy life. I found Wilding Wallbeds! One leisurely stroll through the local showroom convinced me that their moto “Saving Space…Beautifully” is not just words. This show room is filled with dozens and dozens of beautiful space saving and organizational items for your home, and it’s not just Wallbeds. I was surprised to find items like a new set of hidden storage night stands that they make. I think all of us love the idea of hidden spaces. They’re fun and functional. You would never know by just looking at these night stands all the fun hidden space they contain. These night stands have a secret drawer behind the base trim plus a secure magnetic latching secret hiding space in the top of the night stand. This is a great space to hide things that you don’t want the kids to get into. Or items that you simply don’t want left out. There is enough room to store a Book and candy bar, medications, flashlight, gun and other items too.

Let me share with you four of my top picks for decluttering a guest room that I found at Wilding Wallbeds:

Disappearing Desk Bed

First is a fabulous Disappearing Desk Bed – Wilding Wallbeds recently added to their arsenal of wallbeds a new concept bed. This bed functions as a stationary, permanent desk during those days that you don’t have guests around. This desk is big too….two feet deep and seven feet wide, so it’s large enough for all of my office needs and this is just where it begins to get really good. As your guests arrive, you can convert this bed and into a beautiful bedroom in less than five seconds! That is right, all you do is lower the bed. As the bed lowers, all of your office items remain on the desk top and lower, horizontally to the floor. You don’t have to move your computer or books or printer. You don’t even need to close your lap top. There is even enough space for a desk top computer. You will absolutely love this Disappearing Desk Bed.

Bookcase Wallbed

My second pick is their Book Case Wallbed – Just think of this. A seven foot tall and five and a half foot wide book shelf unit that is also a fabulous guest bed. All of this takes less space than the average dresser. As it turns out, this is also very flexible item that you can use in many ways in your home or office or business. If you prefer not to have a bed for guests, this book case can function as an entertainment center where the TV is completely hidden out of sight until you want to view it. It can function as a computer center where all the clutter is hidden behind the book shelves. It can also function as a way to hide the door of a closet or safe or storage room. When I was a kid, I remember reading mystery books where there was a set of book shelfs that concealed hidden passages or a hidden room. I have always wanted a hidden room in my home. The latest version of this book case unit with hidden space behind it is a gun hide. You can actually store dozens of guns or other items that you’d like hidden, all behind a beautiful and functional book shelf. These can be collections that you view occasionally or items that you want completely out of view.

Disappearing Desk Bed

Number three is the Murphy Bunk Beds – These are not your standard bunk bed, they are actually a wallbed too. They take so little space when the beds are folded up that I could very comfortably put two sets in one room and sleep four kids in a normal 10 foot by 11 foot room. On one of those days that I’d rather spend time outside in the sun and fun, I wouldn’t even have to make the beds. Now don’t tell on me, but I could simply close the beds and all that clutter hides behind beautiful hand crafted wood.

Power Wallbed

Now, number four is the Power Wallbed - You have to see this wonderful bed operate. At a glance, this unit is a beautiful entertainment center. Your TV can mounted directly to the face of the cabinet and the Power Bed functions like every other entertainment center that you’ve ever owned, but with the simple push of a button, things begin to change. A fabulous, European mattress begins to crawl from the base of this entertainment center into the room, and what you’re left with is a great guest bed for the night. The TV is still viewable while the bed is in use too.

I found many more items that would help me with my spring home organization too. I recommend that you drop by and have one of the friendly and helpful staff members show you how this bed can save space in your home.
