With the holidays right around the corner, it’s time to start planning for family and guests. The holidays are one of the best times for celebration, but can often be overwhelming. You want to be as accommodating to your guests as possible, but finding the time to do so can be a challenge.
Creating a Stunning Guest Room
Start prepping your guest room now with our helpful tips! Creating a stunning guest room will not only bring additional comfort for your guests, but also add value to your home.
This is the first, and most exciting part of the process of creating a stunning guest room. There are endless catalogs, online resources, magazines, and more that are filled with beautiful ideas for your guest room. When you are looking through them, take notes, make bookmarks, and cut out photos to get inspiration for your new room.
It is important to be realistic in this process. Consider the space that your room offers, the look of your overall home, and your budget. By spelling out these facts before you start your hunt, it will keep you accountable.
Choose the Right Furniture For Your Space
Making the most of your space will result in a multi-functional room that can be used throughout the year. As many guest rooms are smaller in size, consider a Horizontal Murphy Bed or other Murphy Bed.
These are great options for guest rooms, as the bed can be completely concealed to offer you more space than you could ever get with a traditional bed.
The Horizontal Murphy Bed is a great option as it provides you with even more space. Because this style of Murphy Bed is horizontal, the total area that it takes up is much smaller. This is great for small rooms. Your guest will sleep comfortably, but also have enough room to feel comfortable when just hanging out.
Measure & Plan Your Space
Once you’ve found some inspiring pieces, it’s important to start planning out your space. Take into account your favorite pieces of furniture and ensure that they will be a great addition to your guest room. Consider:
- Function, and more
This will help you take your thoughts and ideas and turn them into a plan of action.
Choose a Color Palette
As mentioned briefly before, you should have a fluid color palette in your guest room. This color palette should be present in:
- Flooring, and more
By having a set color pallet in your guest room, you will help set a calm, relaxed, and comfortable mood for your guests. The right color choices can completely change the mood and feelings in the room – making your guests feel as if they are in their own home.
Decorate the Space
To complete your guest room, decorate your space with a collection of accent pieces – but try not to get carried away. Accent pieces are meant to be few and far between. Too many pieces can make the room feel cluttered, which can cause discomfort for your guests.
Choose a selection of accent pieces such as
- Photos or Artwork, and other trinkets
These accent decor pieces should complement the color palette nicely and add the perfect finishing touch to your guest getaway.
