Practicality

It’s worth considering how often you think you’ll have guests staying in your ADU. Chances are, you are going to not have guests staying there more often than you will. This simply means that it would be most practical to have your guest space double as something you can still use even when there aren’t guests staying there. Your ADU could double as an office, a relaxation area, a gym, and more!

Also, keep size in mind. If you aren’t working with a lot of space for your ADU, it’s worthwhile to only include the most important things like bedroom space and a restroom. Or, if you build an extra-large ADU, keep in mind that the energy consumption will be a little higher.

Amenities

When planning your ADU as a guest space, it’s important to think about how it will be used. Do you want your guests to have their own kitchen space with a fridge, range, and microwave? Or would you rather them come to the main home for a meal with the family? If you plan on your guests staying there for longer than a night or two, it may be worthwhile to invest a little more in a larger bed and nicer bedroom space. It’s important to design your space to compliment how you envision the flow of your guest’s experience. The amenities you provide in your ADU will directly influence how their stay plays out.

Plan Ahead

Think about how you’d like this space to be used. Would you like to rent it out for a little passive income? Or are you looking for a comfortable, self-sufficient living area for your parents to stay in during the holiday season? When designing your ADU space, keeping focused on the intended use cases and purposes will help you design the best possible ADU for your needs.
