If space is an issue, here is one easy way to not only add storage but double up on the functionality of a room.
Instead of a traditional nightstand, opt for a small writing desk.
I love this idea for a guest room. It gives both you and your guest a little more drawer space and if your guest needs to work they have a place of their own to do so.
Would you rather have a traditional nightstand or do you like the idea of a writing desk?
