Two tucked-away guest beds ... built into walls.
The guest rooms in these two houses aren't rooms at all. One serves more often as a window seat for two adjacent bedrooms. The other is a roll-out bed hidden in a niche behind a curtain.
Phoenix architect Jim Scalise joined his two boys' bedrooms with a shared window seat, guest bed, and crawlthrough (right). The alcove is big enough to make up as a bed (also useful for Daisy, the family beagle). Solid bifold doors seal one or both rooms off for privacy.
A niche for a roll-out single bed (farright) was built into the wall of Gep Durenberger's family room in San Clemente, California. Above is another niche for the television. A curtain disguises the two storage compartments.
