A guest bedroom might be where the laundry piles and unfinished projects are placed, but as soon as you have visitors, it becomes the most important room in the house! A guest bedroom should be a welcoming and comfortable space for your guests, so join us as we share tips and ideas for creating the perfect space…
As a guest bedroom is not continuously used, this is the perfect opportunity to get out of your comfort zone, have fun and create a unique scheme – something different to your master bedroom.
Applique headboards are a fun way to bring a personal touch. Sometimes less is more and we absolutely love this recent scheme for room 1006 at Crosby Street Hotel. Here, a room of turquoise and orange evokes a summer feeling.
When creating a guest bedroom, it’s important to remember the room must work for everyone and so it should appeal to all ages or genders. Appealing to all, our ‘Ozone’ fabric is always a winner!
Use antique or special furniture pieces to help give your room more character. In this room at Haymarket Hotel we have placed an armoire alongside a blue mirror which creates a statement.
Make the room comfortable with a desk for working, or doing make-up. This bedroom makes the perfect example to show how you don’t necessarily need a lot of space to include a desk.
An accent chair is always useful – even if they just end up with clothes on them!
MAKE IT PERSONAL
Add at least one unexpected item that will make your guests smile when entering the room. This could be an artwork, a lamp or an accessory.
Welcome your guests with freshly ironed linen and fresh flowers. You can also incorporate a candle, which will give some cosiness to the room – our Tall Trees Ceramic Candle makes the perfect addition. Find yours at Shop Kit Kemp.
