How to create a rustic retreat in your guest bedroom

Sweet Dreams English Beam Reclaimed Wood BedRustic furniture is a fantastic choice for guest bedrooms. The beautiful, natural markings of the wood create a cosy feeling which are perfect for making your guests feel at home. 

Depending on the size of your guest bedroom, you may only have limited space for furniture. But of course, a good bed is a staple in any guest bedroom. Its World Dream Day on 25th September so make sure your guests have a luxurious bed, they can snuggle up and get comfortable in. Dress your bed with crisp, white bedding and add chunky throws and extra cushions to create a cosy retreat for your guests.

Alternatively, place a wooden blanket box at the end of the bed with extra bedding, cushions and throws so guests don't feel like they have to bother you if they are cold. 

At each side of the bed, bedside tables are a staple for any bedroom, giving guests a spot for the cup of tea whilst they rewind. Keep the tables simple with table lights or perhaps a bunch of fresh flowers to create a welcoming feel. For the ultimate guest bedroom, you could also leave a selection of books and magazines to read.

If you have guests for extended periods of time and you have the space, storage space so your guests don't have to live out of a suitcase for the duration of their stay is a great idea. A small wardrobe with hanging space is a great idea, giving guests to hang up dresses and suits they don't want to get creased. 

Finish the room off with simple accessories. A large rug will add understated style to your guest bedroom and tie any colour scheme together perfectly. A rug is also fantastic under the bed for cold winter mornings when your guests get out of bed.

A rustic mirror is another essential piece so that your guests can get ready comfortably. You could even go one step further and create a dressing area with a beautiful wooden dressing table and a comfortable upholstered chair if you have the space.
