Decorating a Guest Bedroom

Your guest room may be one of the more challenging areas of your home to decorate, because it’s not a room where you will ever spend much of your time. However, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t important to spend some time thoughtfully decorating the space to make any guest feel right at home when they stay with you. Consider the following tips for decorating a guest room to make it a retreat for any friends or family members who stop by.

Create a Design Theme for **the Space**

The guest room doesn’t have to be a sterile environment with minimalist design and neutral colors. It also shouldn’t be a space where random furniture gets stored for makeshift use. Choose a theme for the room with a color scheme in mind and take the time to make the room feel like a real part of your home. This will make guests feel more welcome and provide a more cohesive design statement for your whole house.

Emphasize Comfort

The guest room is the perfect place for big, plush pillows, fuzzy blankets, and comfy chairs that invite you to curl up with a book. Even if it’s a smaller room, try to incorporate seating options beyond the bed, and be sure to have a dresser, shelves, or some closet space where guests can unpack instead of living out of a suitcase while they stay with you.

Don’t Forget the Details

Small details can make a room, and for guest rooms, the most important details are those that offer a sense of home. Framed photos, laundry baskets, mirrors, and adjustable window treatments can all make a big difference in the room’s design.
