If you’re expecting overnight visitors in your home over the holidays, it’s probably time to get your guest room into shape. If your guest room hasn’t been used in a while or is simply in need of some updates, now is the perfect time to make some upgrades. Let’s take a look at five easy ways to make your guest room homier and more welcoming before the busy holiday season.
#1: Fresh Coat of Paint
Few updates are as easy as a simple, fresh coat of paint for your guest room walls. In general, neutrals such as warm gray, cream or tan are versatile and timeless. If you want something with a little more color, a soft yellow, seafoam green or soothing blue are also great options.
#2: New Mattress
A new (and upgraded) mattress could be a great investment in improving your guest room. Welcome your friends or family for the holidays with a mattress that offers excellent support to make their vacation a comfortable one.
#3: More Storage
If your visitors will be staying more than a night or two, chances are they’ll need a place to keep their belongings. If you think your guest room might be short on storage space, consider adding additional storage in the form of a new dresser (if you have space), under-bed drawers or simply some shelves on the walls. A bed frame with built-in drawers, such as the Welden Queen Bed, could also be the perfect two-in-one upgrade for your guest room.
#4: Warm Rug
Give your guests something soft and warm to step onto when they get out of bed in the morning. Especially if you have hardwood or tile floors that might get chilly when it’s cold outside, a cozy rug is the perfect inviting touch to add to your guest room. Plus, you can take this opportunity to add a pop of color and texture to your guest room décor with an area rug that features a stylish pattern.
#5: Better Lighting
During the winter, the days are short and the nights are long. Make sure your guest room has plenty of lighting options so your visitors can get the most of their space. A lamp on each side of the bed, along with ceiling lights of some kind, is ideal.
With one or more of these updates, you can have your guest room looking fresh and inviting, ready to accommodate your guests for the holidays.
