How to Create a Beautiful Guest Bedroom

Make sure your guests feel as comfortable as possible with our guide to creating a beautiful, welcoming guest bedroom.

A Comfortable Bed

There’s nothing worse than spending the night in a friend’s home and having an uncomfortable bed to sleep in. Although you may not know exactly how your guest likes their mattress to be, you can ensure a good level of comfort by investing in a quality one – take a look at our mattress guide to help you decide. Create a sense of luxury with a beautiful bedframe like our Half & Half Ottoman Bed. This bed also doubles up as extra storage for your home as it lifts up to reveal a large ottoman storage space below.

A Welcome Gift

Make your guest feel right at home with a little welcome gift – this can be anything from sweet treats to snack on to a travel sized soap or candle. Think about what would really make your guest’s stay extra special and invest in a thoughtful gift.

Create Some Storage Space

If your guest will be staying for more than a night or two, make sure you create some storage space in the wardrobe and drawers, and make it clear that they are welcome to use the space. Preventing your guest from living out of their suitcase will go a long way to making them feel at home.

Add Some Cosy Lighting

Warm, cosy lighting can make a room feel relaxing and inviting. Adding soft light such as a lamp by the bed is an excellent idea, especially if your guest likes to stay up and read for a while before going to sleep. You might also add a couple of candles to the bedroom, with some matches for your guest to light them themselves if they wish.

Consider the Details

A glass of water by the bed, a vase of flowers on the dresser, an extra blanket; all these things go a long way to turning your guest bedroom from ‘just a place to stay’ to a home away from home. Finishing touches will melt away any worries and make your guest feel welcome and cherished.
