Not many people think to incorporate a guest bedroom into their kitchen space. These homeowners took advantage of the space and raised an extremely low second floor ceiling to build a "mezzanine" guest room. Security bars across the back wall of the kitchen slide over and lock into place to double as a ladder to the guest bed. Indirect lighting and cabinet lighting (narrow strips of light that illuminate cabinet space through a glass shelf) give the space an intimate, cozy atmosphere.
