If you have an extra room in your home, then turning it into a guest bedroom may be a great way to help make your guests feel right at home. Although guest bedrooms can be kept simple, you can still put some of your style into the room and still make it attractive to any guests that may stay at your house. Should you be not sure on what to do about decorating your guest bedroom, here are some basic tips for you to adhere to.
• Comfortable Sleeping Area
Some people choose to put their old furniture and bed inside the guest bedroom. This is okay if the bed is still safe and stable. You might want to purchase a new mattress though, as this will be common courtesy to provide a comfortable sleeping area instead of your 20-year-old mattress. It’s easy to take your old bed and stain or paint it another color to suit the décor of the room. You can also find rather inexpensive and simple beds that would be great for guest bedrooms and will not break your budget.
When it comes to the bedding for the guest bedroom, don’t buy the cheapest set of sheets you can find. Rather, try to find something in the middle that’s comfortable but is not that much cost you money. A basic cotton sheet should suffice with a comforter or blanket. You can also add some style and color into the room with the bedding set without it being too obnoxious.
• Enough Storage Space
Storage is one thing that sometimes poses a problem for the guest room, especially if the room doubles for something else. Even if the room just isn’t used for another purpose, oftentimes people will use the closets and dressers to store their own clothes that may be out of season. If this is the case, you will have to make a few changes before your guests arrive. Be sure that the closet is arranged in order to give plenty of space for your guests’ clothes – and be sure to provide durable hangers as opposed to flimsy wire hangers.
• Neutral Design
It’s okay to add a pop of color here and there in a guest bedroom but you must mostly follow neutral colors. Sticking to neutral colors makes the room more appealing to guests and will make it more comfortable for them. Even though you have neutral colors in the room, you can still add some style with different décor items for example paintings, flowers, and pillows. You shouldn’t be frightened to have a stylish guest bedroom, but just keep it on the neutral side so that the red walls in the middle of the night don’t frighten your guests.
Decorating a guest bedroom can be a fun task but you need to remember the fact that even though the room is within your home, other people will be the ones using the room. Keep it on the simple side and add your stylish touches here and there.
