Tips for Creating the Perfect Guest Bedroom… So Perfect, You Might Want to Move In

guest bedroom

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.

How to Buy Furniture

New furniture in a houseAs the holidays come to a close and the guests begin to leave, you may be glad to stop hearing your mother complain about the lumpy sofa bed and your father telling you it is time for new furniture. You know you need a home makeover, you’re just not sure how to make it happen. It is not so much the money, but the whole furniture buying process that has you in a tizzy.

Before You Head to the Furniture Store

The first step is to decide what pieces you want to purchase and for what rooms. Unless you recently won the lottery, it’s safe to say you won’t be furnishing your whole home at once. Try a room or a piece at a time, depending on your budget. Set and stick to a budget. You do not want to go broke buying furniture.

That being settled, you need to measure the space you will be furnishing. You may think the room is big enough for a queen bed, but then when it’s delivered, there is no room for anything else and you are stuck with a problem. By measuring beforehand you will know what fits where.

The last step before you head out the door is to determine your style. Regardless of whether you are modern, traditional, antique, or unique, there is furniture for you. Know what you want and stick to it. Do not be persuaded by an overzealous salesperson.

This goes for color, as well. Bright funky colors may seem cool now, but will they still be “chic” a few years from now? Furniture is expensive and built to last. It should not be thrown out because it is out of style. Bring in colors in other ways and purchase neutral colored furnishings.

Consider Your Lifestyle 

If you have young children, white may not be the best color for your furniture. In addition, you may want to ask about extended warranties as they pertain to stains and other issues that come with children. However, if you are purchasing for a guest room rarely used, color may not be an issue. 

Quality Should be the Number One Factor 

Low price does not necessarily mean low quality. Regardless of the cost, the furniture you choose should be made of hardwood that is screwed together. If it is made with glue or particle board, avoid it as it will need to be replaced and will cost more in the end.

When looking for high quality furniture at a low price in the El Paso area, look no further than National Furniture Liquidators. They will have you living in the lap of luxury for less.
