Tips for revamping your guestroom


If you’re looking for a new home project to dive into in the upcoming year, why not tackle the guest room? Whether you haven’t given this space a revamp in years or you just like mixing things up as often as the seasons change, the guest room is a gorgeous canvas for showcasing your personality and creativity. Since this is a place you may frequent less often, you may be more inclined to step outside of your comfort zone and design a memorable room that’ll wow your guests every time they come for an overnight stay.

Help your loved ones feel welcomed into your home with open arms by providing a guest room that’s worthy of retreat status. Here are a few simple tips for transforming this room:

Come up with a color scheme
Colors have a major impact on the feel of a room, making your color scheme a very important part of the revamp process. If you want to spice things up, choose a bold color that you’ve always wanted to use but never had the guts to utilize elsewhere. You can take a simple route as well, opting for neutrals with a subtle hint of color in bedroom accents. Choosing a color scheme will lay the foundation for the rest of the room design.

Provide comfy, cozy vibes
You want your guests to feel at home when they enter this space. Therefore, you need to make sure it’s a cozy haven. Calming colors like gray, icy blue, neutral green or lavender are perfect for establishing a relaxing vibe. You can use these colors in throw blankets, pillows and other accessories that can help your guests feel serene and satisfied.

Provide accommodations
If you want to take things to the next level, why not treat yours guests like they’re staying at a hotel and provide welcoming accommodations? A tray full of travel-size toiletries, as well as snacks, beverages and extra bedding can provide your guests with the star treatment. This is a small yet meaningful gesture that’ll make a huge statement in not only your character, but the room’s personality and style.

Add a natural touch
There’s something ever-so-inviting and refreshing about gorgeous blossoming flowers or lively greenery. If you want to add a natural touch to the guest room, place a vase of freshly-picked flowers on the bedside table. Make things more personal by talking to your guests about their favorite type of flower and place it throughout the room before they arrive. This is another thoughtful move that won’t go unnoticed.
