Knowing how to style the perfect guest room can be a challenge. However, get it right, and welcoming friends and loved ones into your home will be all the more special.
In this blog, we will show you how to create a peaceful oasis that will ensure your guests’ stay is memorable for all the right reasons.
A restful space
The most important thing about a guest bedroom is that it is a restful place for your guests. Try to choose relaxing, soothing tones and keep the space uncluttered; this will give the feeling of calm and tranquillity. This will help your guests relax, get a good night’s sleep, and be ready for the day ahead.
Choosing a style, colour pallet or theme for the room will help create an area that feels like it’s been made, especially for your guests. Not a mismatched area created from the items you don’t have space for in the rest of the house. Muted tones are excellent for creating a soothing and restful room.
Bed and bedding
You probably know how challenging it can be to fall asleep in strange surroundings. To help your guests, one of the best things you can do is ensure they have a comfortable bed with a good mattress.
Having layers of plump and luxurious bamboo bedding is excellent for the changing seasons. It will also allow you to accommodate the hot sleepers (those who only ever seem to need a sheet, whatever the weather) and the cold sleepers who are freezing even in the height of summer!
Adding layers of a top sheet, duvet, and throws will let people choose what is best for them, and no one will be kept awake because they are chilly or overheating.
A bedside table gives your guest somewhere to store those essentials, like a bottle of water, phone and glasses, so they are close to hand when needed.
A lamp and reading material
Being in a strange house can make sleeping more difficult in your own home. Having a lamp and something to read, such as books and magazines, will help people relax before they are ready for a snooze or if they wake up early.
The lamp by the bedside is perfect for creating a cosy setting, and reading it will also help your guests navigate a strange room without the need for the main light to be on.
Toiletries & towels
In the rush to get out of the house, most of us have probably forgotten our toiletries and even a towel. Having some essential bamboo bathroom accessories is a lovely touch that will help your guests and make their stay all the more comfortable and memorable.
Creating the perfect guest bedroom will make your guests feel welcome and at home, ensuring they get a great night’s sleep. They will wake feeling refreshed and ready to make the most of their time with you, making great memories which will last a lifetime.
