6 Simple Tips to Elevate Your Guest Bedroom Design

When visitors come to stay at your home overnight, you want them to feel as comfortable as possible. One way to ensure they can relax and enjoy themselves is by designing a luxurious guest bedroom. If your spare bedroom could use an upgrade but the thought of a home improvement project is overwhelming, don't fret. Breathing new life into your guest room design is easier than you may think. With these simple tips, you'll create an inviting space that will make your guests feel at home.

1. Provide a Comfortable Bed

The most important furnishing in your guest bedroom is the bed. After all, it's where your guests will rest and relax after busy days. 

With this in mind, it's best to choose a mattress that is comfortable. This helps visitors feel their best while staying in your home. Along with a quality mattress, be sure to dress the bed in linens that aren't just beautiful but feel good, too. Soft sheets, plush blankets, and fluffy pillows can go a long way in making sure your guests get a good night's rest.

2. Lose the Clutter

If you think that your guest room is the perfect place to store items that you don't use frequently or display every gift anyone has ever given you, think again. A clean, clutter-free room is the secret to designing a space that exudes calmness and relaxation. The best way to keep your spare bedroom tidy is to get rid of anything you don't need, use, or love. If you wouldn't find it in a hotel room, then it probably shouldn't feature in your guest bedroom design.

3. Leave Space for Storage

The last thing visitors want to see when they go to unpack their suitcases is a lack of storage space. To help them settle in comfortably, be sure to provide adequate room in the closet and dresser to lay out their clothes. It's also a good idea to make sure that the bedside table, bookshelf, and dresser have open surface space for any knick-knacks they'd like to have easy access to. Remember, your goal should be to make this temporary space feel like home, no matter how long their visit may be. If your spare room is small, add a storage-friendly Murphy door to fit everything in.

4. Make It Private

Natural light pouring in from open windows can make a bedroom feel spacious and airy. But privacy should also be a priority in any guest bedroom design. Layering the windows in your guest bedroom will make sure that your visitors have the option to block out light if they so choose. Pairing wooden blinds with breezy curtain panels is a great option to keep the room stylish and contemporary while meeting your guests' privacy needs.

5. Don't Forget the Details

Ultimately, it's the details that will make your guests feel pampered while staying in your home. Taking your guest room design to the next level is as simple as:

  • Providing extra linens and toiletries in the bathroom.
  • Clearly displaying your Wi-Fi password on the desk.
  • Finishing it off with a bouquet of fresh flowers on the bedside table.

These simple details are sure to make a big impact that impresses anyone lucky enough to stay overnight at your house.

6. Add Hidden Doors

To maximize the space and style of your spare bedroom in an unexpected way, a hidden door is a great option. Your guests are sure to love the extra storage they provide, along with their modern beauty and cozy charm.
