Quite often our guest bedrooms are either underutilised or used so often that you don’t find time to give it a makeover that will make it look fresh and inviting to guests.  If you find yourself using the guest bedroom often because you have friends or family members visiting on a regular basis then it can pay to give it a little care and a new decor arrangement every so often to ensure they will be more than happy to sleep in there.

Using a Neutral Look

A neutral look is great for one reason: it doesn’t use many colours. As many of may be aware the use of colour in a room can have a huge psychological impact on how we perceive something. If you’re using really dark colours then the room can feel tight and cramped especially if it’s filled with furniture. If you’re using bold colours, then it can invoke different types of feelings depending on the shade you use. If you’re using just neutral colours on the other hand then it doesn’t tend to invoke strong feelings and instead can create a calm and peaceful atmosphere and ultimately makes your guest feel far more relaxed.

Focus on the Bed Itself

There are many different factors that go into creating the ultimately guest bedroom experience. The most important, however, will be the quality and feel of the bed. There are many different types of bed headboard styles to choose from.  You need to think about the material of the mattress and also consider how many pillows you want to offer your guests. It should be a lavish yet comfortable experience that makes them feel refreshed after waking up and they shouldn’t be experiencing any aches or pains. If you want to go the extra mile, consider having several types of pillows in case they have a preference.

Guest Amenities

There are some guest amenities that you can add to a guest bedroom that won’t take much time or effort. For instance, if you’re expecting a guest then you can prepare a tray or a trolley the night before and load it with some essentials. For instance, you could add some snacks, bottles of water, magazines, towels and even bathroom essentials like shower gel and toothpaste. While they have most likely prepared all of those items already, it doesn’t hurt to give them some extras to use. Providing a hospitality tray can be a great little touch and you can even go as far to design the tray a specific way to cater for specific tastes.

Some other examples of guest amenities include charging adapters, note pads and pens, a waste bin and even a writing desk for them to use a laptop or notebook. You’ll also want to clear out the wardrobe and closet so that they can hang up their own clothes and use your storage instead of being forced to live out of their suitcase. This will make them feel more at home (something you should always focus on) and also make it more convenient for them to store their belongings.

  1. We used to have a spare room that we just used as a storage room but it’s now a nursery. I would love to have a bigger house for a guest room and agree that it should be neural in colour and have the most amazing bed!

  2. A great read especially if you have guests come over your house from time to time. I don’t have an extra room at the moment. Well, I don’t have guests coming in that often though. Lol

  3. If someone had a guest room that looked like that I would think I was in a hotel. I agree that making the bed the statement is definitely at the forefront of creating a welcoming guest room x

  4. Our spare room is our dressing room so when guests come they get the largest room in the house – which we are almost finished but not quite. Needless to say though – we rarely have guests over but when we do they get the full treatment from us…including mints on their pillow!
