Creating a warm, welcoming and comfortable guest room in your apartment doesn’t have to be a difficult task when you set your mind to it. Whether you entertain guests regularly or you’ve been nominated to have family stay at your place for the holidays, it’s a good idea to have your guest bedroom ready for visitors at a moments notice. Check out these simple tips and tricks to make sure your guest room is an inviting and cozy space for all of your visitors to enjoy.
5 TIPS FOR CREATING A COZY GUEST BEDROOM
1. START WITH A SOLID BASE
Any room in your apartment can easily be jazzed up if you begin with a great base. Basic decor items like a comfortable bed, clean bed linens, curtains, lighting and a rug help to fill the room and make it comfortable. But the addition of decorative accessories, wall art and personal touches will make the space feel extra cozy.
2. ADD A CHAIR
Whether your guests need a place to take off their shoes at night or a cozy spot to tuck into a good book, a comfortable chair can instantly transform your guest bedroom into a welcoming retreat.
3. GET MORE PILLOWS
A guest bedroom can never have too many pillows. Invest in several sleeping pillows for the bed, accent pillows to complement the bedspread and a few throw pillows to adorn the bed and chair for good measure.
4. HANG A MIRROR
Your guests will enjoy the chance to take a quick glance in the mirror before heading out for the day. If your room design will allow it, consider adding a full-length mirror and a decorative mirror to give your guests plenty of viewing options.
5. PLAY WITH TEXTURE
Your guest bedroom won’t be complete without adding a bit of texture to the decor. While adding color to a room can easily brighten up the space, texture is just as important for creating depth and making guests feel cozy. Add texture with a chunky throw blanket, interesting wall art or other fun decorative accessories.
