6 Ways To Create The Perfect Guest Room

Are you lucky enough to have a spare room, or perhaps your children have grown up and flown the nest leaving a bedroom behind. While this is a sad as a parent, it’s a wonderful thing for home possibilities. The problem is that most people initially use the spare bedroom as a space for storage. Let’s be honest: a storage space is little more than a dumping ground for things that you can’t decide on. So, you need to start thinking of this new bedroom being the guest room that you always dreamed that your home could have. With that in mind, here are some tips to make it a space that you can feel proud of:

Choose A Great Mattress. The current bed in there from the previous teen resident is old, lumpy and in dire need of an upgrade. Before you go for your new purchase, check out to make sure that you are making the right choice. It should be sturdy, comfortable and easy to clean when the time comes.

Choose Great Bedding. You’ve seen the hotels, with their piles of pillows, a thick duvet and a light comforter across the top. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, right? So, copy what you know you love, then add a few funky throw pillows, you know, for the personal touch.

Give Them Space. Always have a guest room that has space for a suitcase to be stored and opened. You can add coat hangers to the closet and make sure that there is a hook on the back of the door for coats and any robes. Guests love space to spread out so try to give them that.

Bathroom Goodies. A basket in the guest room full of toiletries is going to be something that people will love you for. Even your friends and family will feel awkward about asking to use your toiletries if they forget any of theirs, so you can save them the embarrassment by providing them with a gorgeous basket of bathroom goodies for their stay.

Little Touches. The scented candles, the fan of appropriate magazines and the vase of beautifully cut fresh flowers are the little touches that can make a guest room a prime spot to be enjoyed. Hang some beautiful artwork and fluff the rug at the foot of the bed. It’s these little things that make a stay relaxing, so think outside the box.

Do More. If you really want to make an impression, a bathrobe and slippers wouldn’t go amiss! A freshly laundered old robe will do, you don’t have to buy new.

Guests may come and go now your kids are grown and they are sure to be visitors themselves, so keeping the space beautiful is going to be key. Get creative and add a touch of brilliance to your home.
