Top Tips when Creating an Awesome Guest Room

If you have a guest room then you will know what a fantastic space it can be. The problem is that most of the time, this space will be filled with clutter and it will also be packed to the brim with storage boxes as well. When you have a guest come over, you then have the challenge of sorting through all of this stuff to try and make the room feel more comfortable. To avoid all of this, follow the below steps to try and make your guest room way more functional and practical for anyone who stops over.

Create Storage

If you are tight on space then create a designated storage space for your clutter. You may also want to try and create a space for your guests to put their items as well. Consider installing a closet or even try and have some drawers. Little things like this can make the whole room feel way more comfortable and it will also make it much easier for them to unpack when they arrive. If you don’t have the room for this then try and add a luggage rack or even a hanging rail. It’s not much, but it’s a start.

Make a Beautiful Bed

The bed is easily the biggest and the brightest feature of the room. For this reason, you have to do everything you can to make it look super inviting. It doesn’t matter if you are on a tight budget or whether you just don’t have much experience in hosting guests, because it is super easy to make your guest bedroom look incredible with these few simple tricks. Try and stay neutral with the bedding colours and always make sure that the look is consistent across the rooms. You also need to fold your comforter in half, and that you match the style of the room in with the bed as well. Pillows can make all the difference to a good night’s sleep, so choose a nice middle-ground pillow for the guest room.


Think about nightstands, tables, easy to access furniture and even a low ottoman. This will really help you to make the most out of the space that you have and it will also help your guests to feel way more comfortable. If you don’t have much room then this is completely understandable, but you should always have a bedside table. After all, you want your guests to have somewhere they can put a glass of water at the end of the night or even their glasses. If you don’t then this can cause them to be uncomfortable and at the end of the day, this is the last thing that you want when you are the host.

So there are many things that you can do to try and make your guests feel more comfortable and when you are able to follow the above tips, you can be sure to make them feel way more at home as soon as they step into the room.
