Spare bedrooms are great! They make your home a much more flexible and inviting space when you have visitors from out of town, the kid’s friends are staying over (or when a friend has a few too many wines).
To truly make your guests feel welcome and comfortable when they stay with you, it’s important to get the styling of you spare room just right. Check out our easy-to-follow guide for making your guest bedroom into the comfortable sanctuary that it should be.
As tempting as it may be, the spare bedroom is not the place to store all of the odds and ends that you can’t find space for elsewhere in the house. Nobody wants to spend the night sleeping amongst old shoe boxes, camping gear and other assorted bric-a-brac! Keeping the spare room clutter free is the first step in making your guests feel welcome.
A Comfy, Inviting Bed
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of sleeping in your own bed, but you can go a long way to making a good first impression on your guests by providing them with a comfortable and inviting place to sleep. Investing in a nice bed frame, a quality mattress and good linen goes a long way in this department. It also doesn’t hurt to add in a few coloured cushions and a throw rug to really make the room pop.
Adding a few thoughtful touches to the spare bedroom takes next to no time at all but will make a big impact. Freshly cleaned and folded towels on the bed, magazines on the bedside tables and some flowers in a nice vase are a great way to achieve an appealing atmosphere.
