  • a pull out bed in a couch will help tons. i bought one of those on craiglist for 50 dollars. as for tables for alarm clocks and all i would use living room tables that go well with the couch so it doesnt look odd when company comes over

  • you could use free standing wooden storage cabinets instead of dressers for clothes to make it look like its a storage cabinet for something else.  you can also use tots/storage containers with lids to pack in your clothes you dont need for the season and pack into your daughter's closet.

  • Opt for a studio-like apartment feel.

    ^use big shelving or even room dividers, like above to help 'divide' the living room space.

    Or even go for a hotel suite kind of feel. :) Pick your favorite hotel, & get some ideas going.
