Have a spare bedroom you want to use for guests but as an office as well? No worries. Turn the closet into a simple, low-key but efficient office area. Cover with a curtain to keep it inconspicuous when guests arrive.
The opposite idea of using your closet for a desk in the spare room is to use the closet for the spare bed instead. Make it cozy for your guests by adding a space for bedside lighting and reading.
