From finding the right duvet cover to making sure the size of your TV covers the space you’re allocating for it, there are many tricks and tips that come in handy when taking on a project that will transform your spare bedroom into a cozy guest suite.
Give ‘Em a Warm Welcome
The most important thing to provide your guests with is an invitation to stay. A hospitable spare bedroom room starts with being a welcome space for your guests to unwind and even feel at home in.
Furnishing your spare boudoir with neutral, modern pieces goes a long way in welcoming guests. There’s a benefit to lounging in luxury. Accommodations that go above and beyond automatically make guests feel at home. This philosophy can be implored by simply elevating what you already have.
A collection of assorted pillows, a cozy blanket or sofa cover, a stylish rug, and a lamp are perfect ways to amplify the room as visual and tactile invitations to stay awhile. If you want to add a big piece of personality, paint a striking accent wall to splash in some color. Don’t forget to add practical touches such as a little basket of toiletries and some fresh flowers, extra linen, and bath towels.
Incorporate Double Duty Furniture
Being a good host requires some smart prepwork. To keep your guest room versatile, invest in multi-use furniture to make the most of your space. This is especially important if you have a compact space, where every bit of your floor plan is valuable.
Double duty furniture include sofa beds, multifunction desks that can be easily transformed into a vanity, or adding a speakeasy fridge for guests to enjoy a nightcap before bed. These are great ways to make the most of your space.
A well-kept space is crucial to giving your guests a warm, homely place to relax. Take the time to stash away any redundant furnishings or general clutter. If you feel overwhelmed and cannot identify where and how to declutter your room efficiently, use storage bags and well tested organizational techniques to make any room clutter-free.
Bring-in a Luxe Feel
Everyone loves a first-class, hotel-like treatment. When creating your guest suite, make sure your layout is clean and your aesthetics make a statement. Trendy accessories, wall art, statement lighting, a classy headboard, and a sleek mirror all provide a luxurious experience to your guests. Throw in some full-length curtains to intensify the luxe feel. Don’t go overboard with personal pictures or items if you want your guest room to resemble a hotel suite. Finally, make sure to deck out your walls with texture and color. Design goes a long way in giving a hotel feel.
Go With a Theme
If you love to entertain guests, try a trendy theme to create a focal point for your design. Feel free to decorate to match your guest’s stay, such as decorating a room to resemble the holiday your guests are visiting for.
Pick a particular theme and build your entire decor and accessory design to match. This base allows you to be a touch more precise when dressing the room for special occasions. A cohesive design goes a long way in giving your guests a memorable experience at your home.
Incorporate Greenery & Fresh Plants
A pleasant ambiance is not just confined to a piece of exquisite furniture and fixtures. Adding fresh flowers and greens to your guest bedroom can do a lot for your hospitality. So try jazzing it up with faux flowers, indoor plants, or just a vase. Small, botanical details just can’t go wrong.
Pro Tip: Along with flowers, a pleasant scent for your room can help get your visitors excited for their vacation.
Add Interesting Furniture
While it’s important to have the basics, that traditional lounge seat is just a chair cover away from adding a touch of extra pizazz. Picking an intriguing piece of furniture as an accent is easier than you think.
An item like a bedroom bench, an indoor swing, or some sleek wall frames can make your room more fun and luxurious in a jiffy. Even with a small room, one interesting piece can transform your spare bedroom into a custom suite.
