Guest Suite Renovation: 4 Tips That Will Satisfy Your Inlaws

Guest Suite Renovation: 4 Tips That Will Satisfy Your Inlaws
  • Opening Intro -

    As the baby boomer population ages, many parents are moving in with their children.

    This can be a source of tension for couples.

-------------------------------------

Here are some tips to create a guest suite that will leave all parties satisfied.

Imagine the Possibilities

Visualize ways to maximize your existing space when creating the perfect guest room. You may be renovating an existing bedroom for your in-laws to have their own private space. Another possibility is to take extra garage space and build a separate guest suite. Take into consideration any mobility issues. Having a guest suite on the first floor should eliminate any of these concerns. You might even want to consider creating a separate entrance so that everyone can feel as though they have their own areas.

Consider Design Elements

A tastefully designed suite can make it more attractive for your in-laws. It can even allow them to feel more comfortable spending time in this space. Design includes more than just the finishes of a room. You can tailor the pieces to match their personalities. They might be willing to give you the separation of space that you may require. This can help to reduce tensions in your household, and lead to a more relaxing home environment.

Having quality furniture, like that from West Coast Living Thomasville, can create a space that is more inviting to your guests.

Upgrade to a Private Bath

Everyone will likely feel more comfortable if the guest suite includes a private bath. Sharing a bath with someone can be very stressful. A private bath allows for your in-laws to spread out and not be in anyone else’s way. Some spaces may be more accommodating of a private bath renovation than others.

Another factor to consider is ease of use. It might be in your best interest to renovate the bathroom to be ADA compliant. This can prevent future mobility problems from arising. Getting the expense done upfront can save you from future emergency renovations.

Look Into Kitchenette Options

Consider if you want to put in a kitchenette into the guest suite. This will create more of an apartment like feel to the space. It may even save your marriage. This will allow the guest suite to feel more like its own space.

Your in-laws will be less reliant on you and may encroach less on the rest of your home. It can also allow your in-laws to feel more independent. This can encourage them to develop outside interests. They are still a part of your family, but there is some defined separation between all of you.

Whether your in-laws are just visiting or moving in, having a separate guest suite can make everyone more comfortable. Use these tips to plan a guest suite renovation that will satisfy your in-laws.
