How to Decorate Your Guest Bedroom
A guest bedroom is the best way to welcome your family and friends in your home. It should be functional, but also a place where your guests can relax and unwind after socializing or being tourists all day. It should be decorated in a way that is stylish but also cozy and uncluttered so that your guests will want to come back to visit.
Here are a few tips on how to decorate your guest bedroom:
1. Have fun with the Space
Maybe you have thought about some extravagant, colorful ideas for your master bedroom, but you were not sure if you were going to get sick of seeing it every day, so you decided to stick to the neutral instead. Well, the decorating rules of any bedroom do not apply to the guest bedroom so go ahead and use those extravagant ideas. Have fun decorating your guest bedroom with accent colors and in a way that is memorable so that your guests remember their stay with you and your family forever. Maybe you add an accent wall with fun wall décor, picture frames, or mirrors. Or maybe you are feeling extra fun and add a wallpaper. Your personal touches of décor and accessories is what makes a guest bedroom so special. Whatever you dreamed about doing in your bedroom but ended deciding against it for timeless reasons, do it in your guest bedroom.
2. Fun but Comfortable Bed Stuff
The most important part of the guest bedroom is a comfortable bed/bedding. You want to make sure that your guests get a good night sleep so that you do not have to deal with their grumpiness…and because their comfort is of maximum importance to you when you are hosting them. Check out ZUO’s beds for a stylish and comfortable choice I would recommend getting two twin beds for your guest bedroom so that your guests can make the most of the sleeping situation. Once you have found a comfortable and fun bed, add bedding. Bedding is a good place to start when decorating your guest bedroom. It will determine the overall aesthetic and color palette of the room. The accent colors in your bedding can help you decide on the paint color for your accent wall or the color of a few of your décor pieces. Choose a state making, bold, fun bedding that will of course be memorable.
3. Put yourself in your guests’ shoes
When deciding what kind of furniture pieces to add to your guest bedroom, think about what a hotel room offers and what you would want if you were staying at someone else’s guest house. I would imagine that if you were a guest, you would want to feel comfortable and relaxed to unwind and chill in your only private space. Considering this, you might want to add an armchair. It can be used as another comfy spot for your guests to check Instagram or read their emails. It can also be used as a bold statement in the room that helps ground the space and add style. Check out ZUO’s armchairs that are designed to be the perfect accent piece. Also, to make the room feel cozier, consider adding a throw blanket and plush pillows which can serve as décor and be functional in case your guests get cold or need extra cushioning.
4. Allow for enough storage space
Nothing is worse than your guests having to keep their clothes and other essentials in their suitcase because there is no storage space. Make sure that you leave enough space in the closet for your guests to store their clothes and shoes. This will allow them to be more organized and make the room feel less cluttered. If your guest bedroom does not have a closet, add a dresser, like ZUO’s Linea Double Dresser, which is a timeless storage piece that spices up any bedroom. You can even add a bench at the end of the guest bed for extra seating, or a place to put magazines. Any furniture piece that can be easily styled and used as storage is ideal for a guest bedroom.
