When you have a spare room inside your home and frequent visitors consider their guest room. Forgetting this room means you’re missing out on a golden opportunity to refresh and formalise the space. Turning it into a guest bedroom will give it purpose while allowing you to invite your friends and family over for extended stays, so it’s a win-win situation that you should definitely make the most of now.

If you’re  interested in finding out more about how you can create the perfect guest bedroom inside your home, then simply read on to uncover a variety of different tips, tricks and ideas that you can implement to transform the space in no time at all!

Choose A Calming Color Scheme 

First things first, you need to choose the most appropriate calling color scheme. Choose a colour to help your guests can relax and unwind. When they head upstairs to get some rest while visiting your home, make the bedroom a happy surprise. Loud and garish colors like red and pink will not work, as they are far too intense and overwhelming for a room that should instead be filled with subtle and gentle tones. Consider a soft creamy vanilla, or upgrade to a warm cocoa brown to make the room feel toasty in the colder winter months. Don’t use more than 2 or 3 different colors inside your new guest bedroom, as this can be overpowering and make it difficult for your visitors to sleep. 

Invest In Comfy Furniture

Your next priority should be to invest in the most comfortable furniture you can find. Your guests need a lovely bed to fall into at the end of a fun day or night at your family home! Trying to save money by purchasing the cheapest options will only lead to problems. Poorly made beds and seating are much more susceptible to damage and even breakage. You wouldn’t want your guests to fall through their bed while they are sleeping. No!

Even if you have to buy second hand goods, just make sure they come from a reputable brand. Choose a brand that is known for durability and quality, rather than opting for the more popular cheaper versions. Flat pack furniture brands seldom last longer than 2-5 years inside a busy home.

Don’t Forget Décor!

And finally, last but not least, you must never forget about the décor. Leaving blank walls and empty shelving will make the room look as bare and uninviting as it could possibly be, whereas making the decision to invest in something like perfume bottle wall art or framed family photographs can bring the room to life.

Consider the flooring. Use a plush rug underfoot, buy faux fur throws to upgrade the bed and be sure to fill your guest room with other knickknacks and décor items that express your personality and stop the room feeling like a hotel, as you want them to feel relaxed and comfortable rather than confined and uninspired.
