It’s almost always a smart idea to have an additional bed. A cozy bed is a must-have for any guest, whether you’re hosting family or friends, or if you need a place to crash during late night hangouts. While an air mattress can be used in a pinch to provide a comfortable place for guests to sleep, nothing is as luxurious as a bed.

The only problem? There’s no obvious spot to place an extra bed if you don’t already have a Guest Bedroom. You’ll need to be creative to add hidden beds to your home if you want to expand the sleeping arrangements without having to change your living space. Hidden bed ideas are plentiful and easy to implement.

There’s a cute solution for adding an extra bed to your home.
