Inspiration & Ideas

Do you know how to set up a guest bedroom?

When it comes to decorating your home, the guest bedroom can sometimes be left behind. However, a great guest room is a wonderful addition to any home - perfect for making your family and friends feel right at home. With Mother's Day and Easter coming up, now is the perfect time to get your guest room set up for any guests who may be coming to stay.

You don't need lots of furniture in your guest room; just keep it simple and practical. At a minimum, a reclaimed wood bed and a reclaimed wood wardrobe or a large chest of drawers to create a comfortable and welcoming space. On the bed, create a plush environment with fresh, clean bedding with a thick duvet and lots of fluffy pillows. Make sure to hang some extra hangers in your wardrobe so your guests have a place to hang their clothes.

If you have a little extra space to play with, a wooden box would make a fantastic addition. A large wooden box is a great place to store extra blankets and towels so guests don't need to worry about asking for bedding if they are cold and to make them feel at home. A wooden box would also make a great spot for guests to store luggage so it is out of the way.

An industrial bedside table is also fantastic for storing the essentials. Keep it simple with a table lamp so your guests can relax and read and perhaps add some fresh flowers for a personal touch. You could even stock your bedside table a couple of your favourite books and magazines to give your guests a chance to wind down.

A sheepskin rug is another great addition to a guest room, especially if you have wooden floors. Placed beside the bed, a sheepskin rug is great for adding comfort and warmth to any bedroom. The Luxury Sexto White Sheepskin Rug will add glamour and sophistication to any room. The extra large rug is beautifully soft and is perfect for adding into any bedroom.

Alternatively, add a rustic wall clock. Not only do they look great, if your guests have to catch a flight, they don't need to worry. The simple colouring of the Pale Grey and Off White Vintage Metal Wall Clock works with any interior scheme and makes a great statement too.
