Custom Builders in Indianapolis: Planning a Guest Suite in Your Custom Home

Phil Myers - Monday, September 12, 2016

As you start thinking about your future custom home, you’ll probably have a lot of ideas and details you want to include. But, have you thought about where guests will sleep when they come to visit? A guest suite is the perfect place for your guests to have privacy, relax, and get away from the hustle and bustle of your home. Custom builders in Indianapolis can help you transform an area of your custom home into the perfect guest suite. Here are a few great ideas to get you started:



Depending on how long your guests will be staying with you, they may want to prepare their own food and store snacks. A kitchenette allows guests to spend a little more time alone to prepare for the day or unwind at the end of the day. Complete your kitchenette with a mini fridge, microwave, toaster, and cabinets for utensils, plates, and mugs. Custom builders in Indianapolis can help you determine what will work best in your guest suite.


Private Bathroom

You shouldn’t make guests use the same bathroom as your kids. Instead, create a bathroom that they can use without having to leave the suite. This will give them more privacy as they get up and prepare for the day ahead of them. Plus, your guests will feel more comfortable knowing they don’t have to tote their toiletries to the bathroom every time they need to shower, remove makeup, or freshen up.


Seating Area

Guests may want to relax from time to time when they’re visiting. A seating area in your guest suite gives them the perfect place to do that. Think about installing a media center with a TV, DVD player, and some movies, so they can watch something. Or, your custom builder can install built-in bookshelves in the guest suite, so you can put some of your favorite books in the room for guests to read. Another option for the seating area is a coffee table or end table with recent magazines guests can flip through.


Multiple Bed Options

Your guests may not always be the in-laws or your out-of-town couple friends. In fact, your guests may be more than two people. When your sister and her husband come to visit with their two kids, where will they all sleep? Consider putting a queen sized bed in the guest suite, but also having the option for other sleeping arrangements. You could install built-in bunk beds that won’t be in the way when guests that don’t have kids come to visit.

Custom builders in Indianapolis can take all of your guest suite ideas and turn them into reality. From the best custom features you can think of to the basic necessities, your guest suite can have it all. The experts at Phil Myers Custom Homes would love to sit down with you and discuss your ideas.
