Here is our insanely multi-tasking nursery. It is the nursery, of course, where we change diapers, dress Coco and keep all of her clothes. It is also the office back there on the right, and the guest room. (You can just see the guest bed peeking into the frame and it goes off to the left.) It's a tiny room to begin with, but now that we're thinking of having another baby, it needs to go through another transformation and become a nursery/toddler room/guest room/office. Can it be done?!
I found a lot of shared room inspiration online and one possible solution is this loft bed from IKEA. If we were to lift the guest bed into the air, a comparatively massive space would magically be created underneath! It would be big enough for a toddler bed, nightstand and toy area with a rug.
But it's so hard to imagine if that would make the room feel overly crowded (like the sky is falling type of crowded;) And, I wonder how easy it would be for a guest to go to sleep with a little toddler sleeping under their bed. Plus, using the office after she went to sleep wouldn't work. :( Before giving up entirely, I thought I would ask if you have any thoughts or ideas? My mom is coming for Christmas and we love having a space for her when she's here, but after her visit, I think it's time to start envisioning a space for Coco. That said, I want to exhaust every possible option before giving up our guest space! Thanks in advance for your input. :) xo
