6 Steps to the Perfect Guest Bedroom
One of the best things about Christmas is meeting up with all your friends and family. This can mean that the spare room gets a little more use than normal and may need a little bit of TLC to make it a home from home for your guests. We have come up with 6 easy steps to make sure your spare room is inviting and comfortable for all your guests.
Step 1 – A comfy bed
After a long day travelling, eating and socialising there is nothing better than getting into a comfy bed for a lovely long sleep. This Mallani Classic Bed is made from solid wood designed to last a lifetime, will suit any decor and provide the perfect rest for a sleepy visitor.
Step 2 – Warm and Cosy
Make your guests as comfy as possible by adding coordinating cushions and bedspread to the bed. Choose warm, comfortable fabrics such as velvet to make their stay super luxurious and cosy. Our Floral Quilt and matching Floral Cushions are the perfect choice for both comfort and style.
Step 3 – Create a calming atmosphere
Everyone can feel a little frazzled over the Christmas period so choose some clever lighting to make you guest room a restful retreat. A bedside lamp can also make a room feel more cosy, with the addition of some of your favourite books will help your visitors feel right at home. We have a great selection of lamps and lighting but one of our favourites is the White Poppy Lamp, the perfect addition to any bedside table.
Step 4 – Storage
Having somewhere for your visitors to unpack their bits and pieces is a really easy way to make your guests feel more at home. With space for storage at a premium, a bedside cabinet with drawers won’t take up too much floor space but provides useful drawers for storage. The Mallani Drawer Cabinet is the perfect height for a bedside and provides three useful drawers for storage.
Step 5 – Keeping Hydrated
It’s the little touches that make the difference. No one likes to have to go down to the kitchen in the middle of the night for a drink so why not provide a carafe or bottle of water and some glasses? Our recycled glass range has all you need for your guests, the Authentic Clear Glass Bottle and Authentic Set of 3 Clear Glass Tumblers to help keep your visitor hydrated and fresh.
Step 6 – Relaxing Scent
To help create a lovely ambience, a Scented Reed Diffuser or scented candle is the perfect way to make your spare room feel fresh and welcoming. A reed diffuser lets scented oils diffuse gently in to your room for a constant and subtle scent, we have a range of 6 different scents such as Bluebell and Citrus & Lemongrass, all available in both small and large. A scented candle is the perfect way to give a room a lovely scent and looks so pretty when lit. Our Large Scented Candles are available in fragrances and you can buy 2 for only £17 – the Orange, Clove and Cinnamon smells just like Christmas!
