Seven Steps to Create the Perfect Guest Bedroom

Tuesday, 18 November 2014

Christmas time is often when we meet up with all our friends and family. This can mean that the, often neglected, spare room is called into action and you may find it needs a little TLC. Here's seven easy steps to make your spare room inviting and comfortable for your guests.

Step 1 – A comfy bed
An essential for any bedroom. Your guests might have spent a while travelling and so will no doubt appreciate getting into a comfy bed for a lovely long sleep. This solid wood Mallani Classic Bed is is designed to last a lifetime. With its timeless style, it will suit any décor and provide the perfect rest for a sleepy visitor.

Step 2 – Storage
Space for your visitors to unpack their luggage is a simple way to make your guests feel more at home. A bedside cabinet with drawers won’t take up too much floor space but can provide useful drawers for storage. The Mallani Small Bedside Cabinet is the ideal height for a bedside and provides a handy drawer and an open shelf for storage.

Step 3 – Cosy and Warm
Adding coordinating cushions and a bedspead can make your guests feel comfy. Choose natural fabrics such as cotton and rich warm colours to make their stay super luxurious and cosy. Our Ellie Print Quilt and matching Ellie Print Cushions make a great choice for comfort & style and will bring a smile to your guest's face thanks to the cheerful elephant print!

Step 4 – Create a calming atmosphere
We can all feel a little frazzled over the Christmas period so some clever lighting and ambience can  make your guest room a restful retreat. A bedside lamp is essential to make a room feel more cosy, with the addition of some of your favourite books it will help your visitors feel right at home. We have a great selection of lamps and lighting but one of our favourites is the Pair of Siam Driftwood Small Lamps, the perfect addition to any bedside.

Step 5 – A Personal Touch
Picture frames and personal photos really do make the room feel more lived in. Our Sheesham Photo Frames complement any style of décor and will frame your images perfectly.

Step 6 – Relaxing Scent
A Scented Reed Diffuser or scented candle is the perfect way to make your spare room feel fresh and welcoming. A reed diffuser releases scented oils that diffuse gently in to your room, we have a choice of six scents such as Bluebell and Citrus & Lemongrass, each available in small and large sizes. Scented candles are the perfect way to give a room an inviting aroma and they look pretty when lit. Our Large Scented Candles are available in nine fragrances and you can buy 2 for only £17 – the Orange, Clove and Cinnamon smells just like Christmas!

Step 7 – Refreshments
Little touches make a big 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 at the bedside? Our Authentic Clear Glass Bottle and Authentic Set of 3 Clear Glass Tumblers make great choices.
