How to Set Up a Guest Bedroom

What Makes a Great Guest Bedroom?

When it comes to overnight guests, having a designated space to host them makes all the difference. Whether you are hosting a last-minute sleepover or a long-term stay, it is important to offer a guest room that is welcoming and comfortable for your visitors. Offering a space for your guests to have privacy and the comforts of home will make them feel welcome and provide a stress-free experience for you and your guest. Even if you don’t have a designated room for your guests, there are many ways to prepare your home for overnight visitors that will help make their stay enjoyable. Bel Furniture has everything you need to create a cozy space for your overnight guests.

Guest Essentials

When you have guests stay overnight, the most essential part of their stay is the bedroom furniture. Having a comfortable bed is an important perk to helping your guests feel welcome. If you have a spare room you are setting up for guests, use a queen bed with a lovely headboard to give the room a cozy feel. The sheets should be soft and clean, and feel homey but not sterile. Think high-end hotel or cozy B&B. A comfortable blanket and throw pillows will make the room inviting and warm. For an even more luxurious touch, add a pillow-top or memory foam mattress topper to your guest’s bed.

Other essentials for your guests include storage space. Providing a dresser with drawers for storing a few things helps them feel like they are staying in a home and not living out of a suitcase. A trunk or chest at the end of the bed can be a great place for a suitcase or storing extra blankets. Furniture pieces in the bedroom are a must for finishing off the space and providing a functional spot for your guests. An accent chair in the corner can provide a cozy spot to relax. Overall, giving your guests a comfortable, welcoming place to enjoy when they stay with you is the key to creating a guest room that you can be proud of.

The Extras

If you want to go above and beyond with your guest room, consider adding some extra perks that will delight your visitors and have them reminiscing about their stay with you for months. Little gift baskets can be a great way to give your guest room something special. Snacks, toiletries, and bottled water are great items to include so your guests have everything they need and don’t feel like they have to sneak into your kitchen late at night to rummage through your fridge. Adding a charging station can be a nice perk for your guests to keep all of their essentials charged and ready to go.

Decorating Your Space

If you have a designated guest space, having the right decor can go a long way toward making the room a space your guests will love. Keeping a neutral color palette is a great way to keep their space comfortable without making your guests feel like they are invading yours. Choose interesting artwork and fun accents to create a truly unique space.

Small Spaces

Even if you don’t have a dedicated room for guests, you can still create a small space that is warm and inviting. If you don’t have enough space for a queen or even a full bed, consider a futon or trundle. You can even find unique sleeper sofas for the living room that can create a cozy spot for your guests. A well-placed end table and homey touches that make your guests feel welcome are all you need to have a great space for your overnight guests.
