Becoming a homeowner means welcoming your home to those who’ve welcomed you to theirs throughout the years. Be it your big sister, your parents, cousins from out of town, or your best friend who always gave up her bed when you needed a place to stay for the night. Think of a guest bedroom as a mini hotel. You want it to receive a 5-star review and you want guests to rave about their amazing stay. It might seem like a daunting task or one you’re not entirely up for but we promise you, if you follow these simple tips, creating the perfect guest bedroom will be a breeze.
1. Keep It Comfortable With the Bedding
Think pillows and fuzzy blankets. Follow the model of your favorite hotel and add enough pillows that a few will end up on the floor or by the feet and incorporate sheets that make you so cozy, you’ll wonder why you don’t have the same in your own bedroom. Once you’ve created the perfect bed, adding furniture around it will be the next step.
2. Add a Nightstand With an Alarm and Charging Station
Having a nightstand in a guest bedroom is important because many times your guests need to set an alarm and a place to charge their cell phones. Not only that, but it gives them a place to put a glass of water as they recharge from their long drive. Consider also adding a lamp, a frame or two, and a vase for flowers.
3. Make Sure There are Mirrors
Whether guests are staying for a weekend or a week, having a full-length mirror in the room makes it easier for them to prepare for the day. You might even want to add a smaller mirror on the wall. This will be beneficial if you have two people staying in the room so that they each have a place to get ready.
4. Hang Some Pictures On the Walls
The decor is what will truly make the room come alive. It’s also what will make your guests feel more at home. We suggest choosing a large painting or frame to make that the centerpiece then adding two or three smaller ones. Have fun with your decorations but make them pieces that anyone staying over would enjoy.
Bonus: Give it a Test Run!
Before the arrival of your guests, sleep in the bedroom for a night. See what it feels like falling asleep and waking up. This will allow you to determine what’s right, what’s missing, what you like, what you don’t like, and any other changes you’ll want to make before it’s ready for guests.
