How To Create The Perfect Guest Room

Having adequate space in your home to create an inviting guest room is a great way to host friends and family members who are visiting for a long weekend or from out of town. Before moving forward with your guest room remodeling and decor, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure your satisfaction with the outcome of your next DIY project. 

Choose a Color Scheme That is Fitting for the Room 
Choose a color scheme that works in your guest room based on its location in the home and the amount of natural lighting it receives. If your guest room does not include natural light, opt for lighter and more neutral colors such as beige, grey, and white. Use a bold color on one wall where most of your lighting (natural or electric) is prevalent to implement a splash of color that brings accents, accessories, and decor together. 

Lighting Options 
Consider the type of lighting that is best for your guest room and why. Place all lamps and wall lighting on a dimmer switch to provide complete control over the mood and ambiance the room gives off for each individual guest you host. 

Provide Your Guests With Storage 
Provide your overnight guests with storage such as ample closet space, an empty dresser, or even a designated spot in the room that is suitable for suitcase placement. 

Utilize a Good Mattress 
Invest in a great mattress to provide your guests with sound sleep each night. Whether you are hosting a friend with back problems or an elderly guest who has difficulty falling asleep each night, a great and high-quality mattress can help to ensure each of your guests feel satisfied after sleeping each night. 

Consider Necessary Amenities 
Add additional amenities into your guest room to improve the experience of those who stay in your home. Offering fresh linens, towels, and even shower amenities is a great way to improve the experience of your household guests. 

Providing a fresh scent in your guest room is also advisable and it is possible with the use of candles, wax scents, and wall plugins. Choose a scent that best reflects the theme of your furniture and the color scheme of your guest bedroom to truly create a memorable experience for your overnight guests. 

Include books and other forms of entertainment inside of your guest room for those who choose to stay over at your home. If you currently have a WiFi setup, leave information including the WiFi username and password on a written or printed piece of paper inside of the guest room itself to provide maximum comfort and convenience to your guests. 

Knowing how to create the perfect guest room is a way to provide your guests with the ultimate experience each time they visit you and stay in your home. With the right tips, tricks, and preparation, design a guest room that is welcoming, inviting, and unforgettable anytime you host a friend or loved one in your home.
