Your guest bedroom is a room where your family and friends should feel at home, so it should be as comfortable and welcoming as possible.
Elevating Your Guest Bedroom
Whether you're just looking to spruce up your guest room with some extra touches or you want to completely revamp the space, here are some ways to elevate the room.
#1 Start with the Linens
If you want to elevate your guest bedroom, start with the linens.
The first thing you should do is make sure you have high-quality linens. This can be as simple as investing in a new sheet set or upgrading the pillowcases in your guest room.
Second, choose a soft and luxurious blanket that feels like a cloud of feathers when you touch it. This will help ensure your guests have the best night's sleep possible.
Finally, use pillows that are comfortable for them to lean back on or rest their feet on during the night. This helps them feel cozy and at home even though they're sleeping away from their own homes.
#2 Consider the Design
When you're designing a guest bedroom, it's important to consider the size and shape of the room. The room should be big enough to accommodate a comfortable bed frame and dresser, but not so big that it feels empty and awkward.
Be sure to include plenty of windows and natural light, so guests can relax during their stay and get some vitamin D while they're at it!
Don't forget to include storage—whether in the form of built-in closets or dressers or by adding extra shelving around the room, you'll want guests to have somewhere to put their things away when they're not using them.
#3 Create a Gallery Wall
A gallery wall is a great way to bring personality and style into your guest bedroom. Use photos, art, mementos, and other objects to create a cohesive look. If you have the space, choose one large piece of art or multiple smaller pieces, and display them in an interesting way that makes sense for your space and theme.
#4 Use Lamps Rather Than Overhead Lighting
You can use lamps to create the perfect mood. If you want your guest room to feel more intimate, place a lamp on each nightstand. Replacing overhead lighting with lamps will make the space feel cozier and more inviting. Lamps are also extremely functional, as they allow you to read in bed without disturbing others who may also be sleeping in the room.
#5 Have Refreshments and Small Gifts Waiting
A well-appointed guest room is a treat for your guests, and it's also an opportunity to show them you care. Have a basket of refreshments and small gifts waiting for them when they arrive. This way, they'll feel at home right away, and you won't have to worry about them having to go out in search of snacks or toiletries during their stay.
