Your spare bedroom should feel like a place to escape for guests. The one room in the house that can offer peace after a busy day socialising. When I’ve finished working and studying in school, it’s a great feeling to retire to my bedroom and just take a moment for me. So I’m sure it is the same for any friends and family using your guest bedroom.
It’s important that my spare room is a haven. But also a productive space that I can use as well. If you would like to spruce up your guest room then have a read through some of the amazing ways you can create your own little paradise.
Decorating those walls.
It doesn’t cost a lot to give a room a new lease of life with a lick of paint. According to recent studies different colours can affect the amount of sleep you get. Blues, yellows and greens all score high with purple being the worse. A new home decoration trend is monochrome and this could work well with white walls. It’s not that time consuming to repaint some walls, but could make a huge difference to how your guest room.
Think about your flooring.
Maybe you haven’t replaced the carpet since you moved in, or have just decided you fancy a change. But changing the flooring can do many things to a room. Of course, the main thing would be to decide what you want. Wooden flooring can give a more modern look and be easy to keep clean. Getting some inspiration from Ellegant Home Design would be one of the first things to do. If you don’t feel confident fitting flooring now would be the time to get some help. But once it’s done it could make all the difference.
De-clutter the room and look into storage solutions.
Some people find it quite difficult to switch off their minds and relax if they are surrounded by clutter and mess. So when you decide to spruce up your room, it would be a great idea to use it as an opportunity to de-clutter. You might use your spare room as extra storage for clothes and other things. Get rid of some of those clothes you don’t wear, or items that have just been stuffed in draws or put to one side. You may have forgotten what’s in there. Once the de-cluttering has taken place, I would advise getting some new storage to keep things tidy. You could use the storage as a way of decoration. For example, vintage floral suitcases could be a pretty feature but useful. The same could be said for clean, crisp boxes. It depends on your style and the look you are going for.
Finish your room off.
Soft furnishings can set a room off. From a new bedspread and cushions, to candles and photo frames. You, of course, don’t want it to look too cluttered but a few personal touches here and there will set your room off. Again it’s worth sticking with your initial theme. For example, picking vintage pieces would work well with a floral look.
It doesn’t take much, and you can spend as little or as much as you want. But you can such a huge difference to your guest room space by changing a few things.
