Wall Bed Creates Elegant Solution to Los Gatos Townhome Size Constraints

Posted by Mark Olson on Oct 30, 2018 3:31:31 PM

When I first talked to the owner of this 2-bedroom townhome she was clear about what she wanted, but was not sure how to have it all. She wanted a guest room for those times when friends or family came to stay, but that was only the case periodically throughout the year.

We’ve been working in and around Berkeley for a long time, and we know it’s a place people want to live. But because so many people want to live here, the city has been forced to tighten up its zoning laws.

These small spaces can transition over the years, changing from a home office, to a guest room, to a storage area and more. Here at Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets, we often see ADUs being used for aging relatives who are looking to stay close to family.
