For most of us, a guest room is nothing but an additional room which had no purpose in our real-life plan. No surprise that guest rooms happen to look untidy and wild even in the largest and prettiest homes.

As time passes by, and we don’t make actual use of them, we start accumulating them with our cracked furniture; our children’s toys and overgrown clothes; or exercising equipment we thought we would use. That’s just how we forget that guest rooms are a mark of grace and hospitality, especially when we have visitors we didn’t expect.

How to pick the furniture for your guest room

Who doesn’t want to be the perfect host whose home emits with generosity and hospitality? If that’s your example too, devote your time to the guest room, and make it pleasant and welcoming. Guest rooms can be both bold and simple, and they can really show guests you care about their comfort.

Let’s go through few excellent guest bedroom decorating ideas:

Pick a familiar style

The point is that you’re not doing many things in the guest room doesn’t mean that you’re supposed to throw scraps inside and demand it a room. Guests will certainly praise the care and the struggle you devote in order to give well-being.

Select colours with care

While organising the design of your living or other rooms, you definitely established that colours are more than any other decorative items as they are temperament motivations! Hence, if you want a guest to feel amusing at your place, choose patterns that are soothing and peaceful.

We recommend neutral palettes or pastel shades of blue and green. Whatever you choose, skip bold and ‘noisy’ solutions, as they are not exactly what everybody likes.

Buy a great bed

It is your job to provide a relaxed bed. As we all know immediately, sleeping in unknown places can feel abnormal; and what you should completely avoid is ‘strange’ from becoming ‘unpleasant’.

To begin with, buy comforting mattresses and solid bed structures. If possible, go for double size as you may accommodate couples.

Don’t abolish the picture with mismatching bedding

Don’t destroy the wonderful look of the guest bed with unsuitable bedding. Choose soft and neutral textiles to match the style. Think about it, wouldn’t a mismatching sheet indicate a lack of care and attention?

An armoire/dresser closet

You never know what guests are carrying in their suitcase, so you need to make sure there will be enough space to keep it. The perfect decision is to buy an armoire closet, with a solid stack on the one side, and shelves/drawers on the other.


Remember to comprise the standard bedside tables, preferably decorated with an attractive lamp, and two or three bestseller books. Your guests could also need a water bottle with a glass, adjacent sockets for their mobile devices, and an alarm clock. The importance is to create the bedsides practical.

A bed-end bench

A bed-end bench is an elegant addition to guest rooms, which is often abandoned because of its cost. We still recommend you to set up one, because guests like the item and they use it for many basic activities (taking shoes off, packing or unpacking). Now it is your time to be trendy and innovative!

Think of light as a compulsion

Appropriate light means the heart of every room. When installing light, we usually think of our desires and comforts, but this task becomes more difficult in a guest room. Guest rooms need variable lights for every undertaking – influential desk lamps for reading, table lamp on the bedside, and traditional ceiling equipment with a few switches around the room.

Remember the little add-ons

What we want to attain when decorating a guest room is that our guests will feel like home. Home, however, means having a TV, a pair of flip-flops, a daily stream of newspapers, pest repellent or refreshments and drinks. It is entirely up to you to decide what your guests could need and to provide it for them.
