Guest rooms are one of the more under-utilized spaces in any home, and homeowners are often at a loss when it comes to decorating them. With these simple and inexpensive additions, your guest room will become a home away from home for all of your out-of-town visitors.
Liven it up.
Since guest rooms are used less frequently than others, it makes sense to inject some vitality to the space. Before your guests arrive, pick up a fresh bouquet of flowers or a potted plant. They’ll appreciate the greenery while they enjoy the comforts of your home.
Pull out all the stops.
Create a hotel-like atmosphere with key amenities. Extra blankets and pillows, travel-size toiletries, a fluffy bathrobe, slippers or even a coffee maker with a selection of roasts will go a long way towards making your guest feel at home.
Make it a part of your home.
One of the easiest ways to make a guest room feel comfortable is to give it a “lived in” appearance. Add textural accents in layers (think pillows and area rugs) and arrange decorative accessories you already own on empty surface areas.
