Want to be remembered as the best host? Design a guest room that will win the minds and hearts of your invitees! A well-appointed guest room strikes a balance between comfort, chic and an “at home” feel.
Here’s how you can achieve this look:
Choose a Single Style:
When designing your guest bedroom, it can become tempting to try different décor styles or to even do things on the cheap. This will lead to a disastrous look. Instead, pick a theme and stick to it. For example, if you want to create a nautically themed room, choose elements that reflect that theme. Examples include crisp white sheets with blue trim, modern wall art that reflects the ocean, a few seashell knick knacks, a jute area rug, etc.
Add Homey Details:
What elements do you like having in your bedroom? Chances are your guests like the same. Many people enjoy sipping tea/coffee in the morning while sitting in a cozy chair. Therefore you may want to include a modern armchair in the guest bedroom. Similarly, consider adding a nightstand with a selection of good reads for your guests. They will surely appreciate the gesture.
You might be early to bed sort of person, but that doesn’t mean your guests are too. Consider adding a television set to your guest bedroom. This can be as simple or as elaborate as you like. You may want to include a few DVD movies if you don’t have a cable connection.
When selecting linens for your guest bedroom, steer clear from multi-printed patterns and sharp colors. Stick to neutrals, greys and mint green as these are pleasing and relaxing to the eye and help promote sleep. In addition, ensure the material of your sheets is 100% pure cotton. Coupled with a high thread count, it creates a very soft bedding that your guests will enjoy sleeping on.
You’d be surprised by how much your guests will appreciate small details such as clean, folded towels, numerous pillows, a reading light, a bedside water jug, a fresh flower vase (with actual fresh flowers), a stylish throw placed on the chair, etc. Small details such as these convey to your guests that you’re actually concerned about their comfort.
When designing your guest bedroom, think about what you’d like to see when you stay at someone’s home.
