Decorating A Guest Bedroom


The first thing you should remember when decorating a guest bedroom is that this is the one room in the house you are not decorating for yourself. For that reason when you set out to design the décor for that room, it is important to keep it simple and not to busy. Overdoing the décor in this room will simply reinforce the fact that they are not in their own room in their own home.

Even though your guests may be very comfortable when they stay with you, they will never be quite as relaxed as they would in their own home. Having said that, leaving out those few simple pieces that can make a room feel cozy and personal, will leave your guest room looking cold and empty.

Perhaps the most significant piece in your guest room, the single item that transforms it from just another room into a guest bedroom, is the bed. Depending on the space you have available, you can go for a regular bed, a pull out couch or futon, or even a wall or Murphy style bed. It is not essential that the bed is visible.

A regular bed will take up more space, and a full size mattress and bedding can be expensive. If you can afford the space, twin sized beds can be more effective and less expensive. A sofa bed can be even more effective, and can create a room with a dual purpose. You should also find that futons are typically  less expensive than a full size mattress. Although not very comfortable you could also choose a removable bed such as an air bed for your guest bedroom.

This is probably the least expensive method, and gives you the option of opening up the room up completely, which means it can also be used as a home gym, sitting room, or library, when not being used by guests. Typically, as previously mentioned, these beds are not very comfortable, however you will find that some of the better quality air beds are being manufactured to improved standards. Just make sure you get to try it out before you buy, and choose one that inflates automatically.

After you have decided on the bed for your guest room, you have to think about other furniture. A traditional guest room will typically include a set of drawers, along with a small table. If you wish, you can add a TV, plant stands, or even a desk, providing you have enough room. Imagine the facilities of a hotel or motel room. They will generally provide just enough facilities to make guests feel comfortable, but the rooms are neat, easy to clean and clutter free.

To create ambience you can simply add a few assorted lamps or alternative lighting. Lighting in any room is a decoration in it’s own right that is often understated. For example, a floor or desk lamp can offer both illumination and at the same time be part of the décor. A television or radio is also an excellent touch providing the budget allows. Adding these items means that the room can be used even when there are no guests present, as a place to relax in a comfortable setting.

The final touches to the décor should be relatively small and insignificant. If you decide on any artwork for the walls, keep in mind that you don’t  force any extreme tastes on others. A good choice is to go for Impressionistic prints and you’ll find that is probably all you need to complete the room.. Perhaps you might include a wall or desk clock which is a nice way to make an area feel more comfortable when decorating a guest bedroom.
