How to Make A Cosy Guest Bedroom

You’ll always hear the phrase, "make yourself at home!" especially when guests are staying the night or for a couple of days. We always want them to experience a relaxing, comfortable and welcome stay, particularly in the guest bedroom!

Give your guests a home away from home experience with these cosy design ideas:

Spick-and-Span

It is essential that an inviting guest bedroom be neat and tidy. Your guests are sure to feel uncomfortable in a space where it feels like a storage room with layers of dust. To keep it fresh, clean out your guest bedroom and change the bedding and pillow cases.

Remember that guests may bring in many things with them so keep an orderly and open space for them, with enough storage space to hang their clothes!

Personal Touch

Have you noticed that in traveling, there’s always that little things that you forget? Guests may also overlook small items like a toothbrush or a bath soap. Create a little welcome basket with bath essentials, fresh towels, snacks and the all essential Wi-Fi password. Some guests may not be comfortable taking a peek into your refrigerator and they will appreciate the goodies you’ve laid out for them. After all, it’s the thought that counts!

Side Light

Place a lamp and a bedside table next to the bed as most people like to read before going to bed. Your table lamp can also serve as a great accessory to the room!

Functional Workspace

Create a space where your guests may do a little bit of work if ever they want to check their emails or catch up on their work tasks. Place a small desk and a stylish work chair in one corner of your guest bedroom. Add a touch of paper and pens to complete your look.

Don’t forget to accessorize to tie your whole look together. A candle here, a cosy throw or a vase of flowers there is sure to make your guests feel welcome.
