Having family and friends stay the night, whether it’s for a particular occasion or simply because you haven’t seen one another in a while, can be really enjoyable. Being able to spend that much time with people you care about and bringing them into your family’s quality time is a privilege that few people nowadays enjoy. One issue you may have as a host is wanting to dazzle your friends and relatives when they visit, so we’ve come up with some suggestions for creating a guest room that your guests will love. Here’s everything you need to know:
Add comforting home items
You may have previously stayed at a family member’s or friend’s home, and you’ll likely agree that, despite being made to feel extremely welcome, you missed your own personal space. Making a personal place in your guest room that reminds them of home will make it easier for them to unwind. Additions to their room, such as a television, will allow them to retreat to their bed and watch television while enjoying some alone time. Consider purchasing a digital aerial so that your guests’ televisions have better sound and picture quality.
Show off your style
What’s the purpose of having a guest bedroom if you can’t show off your personal style as well? While your visitors aren’t there to evaluate your home decor choices, it’s always wonderful to show off the extra effort you’ve put into it. Here are a few suggestions on how to impress your guests through style:
- Don’t stray from your chosen colour scheme.
- Create a feature wall
- Arrange house plants in vases from Verano Ceramics to make the space more airy and homely.
- Make a lasting impression on your visitors by using fragrances in addition to visuals. Scented candles are an excellent way to do so.
- Hang artwork that unifies the space and complements the rest of your home’s design.
Create ambience in the room
Believe it or not, lighting can make a significant difference in how a person views a space. Although main lights are quite important in a room, they aren’t particularly soothing or appealing. Placing lighting on either side of the guest bed will help in creating the peaceful atmosphere that your visitors desire. Consider adding backlighting around furnishings to modernise and brighten up the area in an unexpected, yet stylish way if you want to wow your guests.
Supply them with homely luxuries
One of the best things about having visitors is that you get to let them into your private lives – the part that no one sees! You know, the times when you and your family just want to stay in your bathrobes and slippers all day? You get the picture. Why not make your visitors feel at ease by gifting them with a bathrobe and slippers so they can participate in the fun with your family? Furthermore, having these on hand will enable them to unwind even more in your guest bedroom.
