Airbnb it has transformed the way we travel. With more people opening their homes to fellow travellers, we’ve written an extensive guide on how to make your home Airbnb ready with rustic furniture, including getting your guest bedroom Airbnb ready.
Bedroom storage is a definite must-have in a guest room and so with this in mind, we take a look at some of the best bedroom storage options.
How to store clothes in a limited space?
Guests will expect the bedroom to have somewhere to unpack their clothes and belongings, but that doesn’t mean you have to have masses of storage space. As well as a wardrobe and chest of drawers, think outside the box, literally, with a stylish and versatile blanket box.
As the name suggests, these large trunks were once used to store spare towels, bed linen and throws, something they can still be used for today. But for your guests, a blanket offers a great alternative to store clothes and belongings whilst bringing certain rustic charm to the room.
There is a design of box to suit every style, be it a rustic blanket box with a smooth domed lid or a colonial style rattan blanket box with a padded top, which can also double up as a practical bedroom seat.
How do you maximise space in a small bedroom?
In a small bedroom, where floor space is at a premium, you don’t want to overload the room with furniture, but at the same time, you want your guests to have the luxury of ample storage space.
The Standford chest of drawers and cupboard is a versatile piece of reclaimed wood furniture that offers drawer space and cupboard space in one. In a smaller bedroom, it can also easily function as a rustic bedside table next to a reclaimed wood bed, as can this medium chest of drawers. This time in a dark shade, it makes a very pretty bedside table. Opt for a matching pair and position either side of the bed; when space is at a premium, smaller items of furniture instead of one large chest of drawers can be the better option.
Another solution is to opt for the tall chest of drawers. Tall and narrow, they take up less floor space, ideal if you have higher ceilings in your guest room. These chest of drawers are also perfect for a corner or to fill a gap next to the wardrobe.
How can I make a small bedroom look bigger?
The knack of making a room feel bigger is to maximise the amount of floor on display and that means choosing furniture that has a gap between its underside and the floor. Choosing key pieces that your guests will love is also key.
For example, a white dressing table with drawersgives not only drawer space but tabletop space too. Similar in design, the extra storage options and details of this rustic dressing table will also complement a smaller bedroom.
Bedside tables that are not imposing in their dimensions also help to make more of the bedroom space but offer enough storage for guests staying in the short term. Useful features such as the pull out extra table on this chest of drawersis perfect for a morning cup of tea!
With so many options, you’re sure to find the right furniture that will guarantee guests return time and time again!
