Bonus Room Tour

And, the tour continues............today Kelly is featuring our Bonus Rooms.  Our "so called" bonus room was not in our original house plans.  About 4 months into our building process I mentioned to Hubby that we should make the area above his shop a Guest Suite.  He thought that was a good idea as well and talked to the builder and he said it would be no problem and we could easily get plumbing up there.  So, our bonus room is our Guest Suite and it is not a part of the main house.  So, it is very private.

This is the picture taken by the architectural photographer.  It gives you an idea of how the room is laid out.   The remaining photos were taken by "yours truly." ~grin~
These are the stairs that lead up to the suite and I ordered this wall decal to go at the top of the stairs just before you enter.  I thought it was quite welcoming! We really don't like that it had to be upstairs but it was just the way it had to be.  We have NO stairs in the main house.  We lived in a two story house for 35 years and that cured us of ever wanting stairs again in our lives.


There is a king size bed and twin beds and it's the perfect arrangement for our daughter and her family.  And, we've had others stay up there and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
There is a setting area with two recliners and a TV.
A large closet
A kitchenette with a microwave, coffee pot and refrigerator.
A vanity area
A game table and chairs
And, of course a bathroom.  It is small but we made it as big as was possible.  It does the job so I guess that's all that really matters. ~smile~

NOTE: I have been a bit absent in the blogging world the past couple of weeks except for the home tours.  Life has been busy, busy.  We went out of town and have had family visiting last week and this week.  I hope to be back on schedule this Monday and I will have lots to share.

  5. Lea, What a wonderful guest suite!!! I love every detail and especially that you and your guests have lots of privacy! I've been having a hard time getting around to visit blogs lately, so want to go back and see the rooms I've missed.
    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs, Noreen

  6. I love your guest suite! Can I move in? I don't have a guest room but my daughter is willing to give up her room and bunk with us or her brother if we have any overnight guests. You truly thought of everything with your new home. What a blessing!

  10. We have a bonus room, too. Our kids and their friends spent a lot of time up there; that's where we had a game system. It kept the noise to a minimum and served as a great place to contain giggling girls for sleepovers. Nowadays we have a bunk bed, futon and chairs, tv, and treadmill, so it's still great for guests. Yours is beautiful!!
