Designing a Beautiful Guest Bedroom

The ideal guest bedroom is a welcoming space that gives your guests all the amenities of a luxury hotel with the personal touches of home. Traveling is tiresome, so focus on the comfort of your guests. Keep the color palette simple and light, and add decorations and home furnishings in a style that offers broad appeal.

 

Sleeping Area

If you have a limited decorating budget, you should choose one or two items to splurge on. The mattress should definitely be included in this short list. Select a high-end mattress that offers comfort, but also support so that guests of all body types and sleeping preferences can be accommodated. Adorn the bed with pillows of varying levels of firmness. This allows your guests to choose what works best for them. Frame the bed with a pair of nightstands. They should be large enough to accommodate a small table lamp, so that guests unfamiliar with the layout of the room can safely get to and from the bed after turning off the main light.

 

Storage Areas

Guest bedrooms don’t need substantial storage space. However, your guests will appreciate being able to unpack. Place a dresser in the room for their convenience. Install a small bookshelf or bookcase, and populate it with reading material that may appeal to your guests. Add a small basket to the bathroom vanity, which you can fill with toiletries that your guests may have forgotten to bring.

 

Working Areas

Every well-designed guest bedroom needs a comfortable chair. If you have sufficient space, you could include a small writing desk or occasional table. Your guests will appreciate having seating options other than the bed, and having a place to work on various tasks.
