If you’ve ever heard of a mother-in-law unit, you may be wondering what exactly it is and if a wallbed would be an appropriate piece of furniture for such a space. A mother-in-law quarters doesn’t necessarily need to house one’s mother-in-law! It is simply a term referring to a guest suite or a separate cottage on one’s main property where a guest or family member can reside either permanently or for a shorter visit . 

Have A Space Ready for Your In-Laws In Seconds!

The term mother-in-law unit came from the common practice of having one’s in-laws move-in to be near or receive additional support and care from the family during their elder years. However, over the years, mother-in-law quarters have become perfect for a variety of other uses such as hosting friends or family from out of town during summer vacation or holidays, renting out the space as an Airbnb to make extra income, or even just having a separate area to host parties, function as a space for a game room or man cave, host teenagers birthday parties, or even be a pool house for an outdoor area. Regardless of how you choose to use your mother-in-law quarters, an extra space like this is vital to any busy home because it provides a bit of privacy and independence for any individual or guest staying on the property.
